PANTHEON OF LEATHER 2006’& 2009 WOMAN OF THE YEAR
Los Angeles LEATHER COALITION 2017’& 2019 WOMAN OF THE YEAR
I was formally introduced to The Lifestyle in 1986 and has since become a well-respected Leader in The Los Angeles BDSM and Leather Communities. I am known for My charity and dedication to The Community and for My skills with My Floggers and Singletail. I am always looking to “give back” to the Community that I love in any way I can. I have held My Annual Thanksgiving and Christmas Slave Auctions for more than 20 years. In 2005‚ I raised more than $100‚000 in food & supplies for the needy as well as fundraisers for the victims of Katrina and many other charities in My career. In 2006‚ the MCC Church in North Hollywood presented Me with a Community Service Award having been responsible for initiating a food drive that fed more than 3’.000 people as a result of My efforts. In 2007‚ as part of The Los Angeles Leather Coalition’s Fundraising Committee‚ I helped wipe out a debt of more than $2’‚000 and put the coalition in the black.
I got My first professional session back in 1990 when I participated in a “Doubles” session assisting Mistress Paula. Over the next four years‚ I immersed Myself in the Leather and BDSM lifestyle community‚ which was “underground” then. Although I have always had a dominant personality‚ I learned from the bottom‚ surrendering‚ and submitting in a TPE relationship‚ and was collared. In late 1994‚ My Dominant took Me to a play party‚ and we “switched”. This was something I was not looking forward to‚ but when I did‚ I learned a lot about Myself. It was that night that I realized that My true calling was that as a Dominant.
For the next couple years‚ I mentored under some of the most experienced lifestyle ple in the community‚ as well as such notable professionals as Mistress Jennifer Antone and Rubber Mistress Ruth. In 1996‚ I teamed up with Mistress Meta and operated a dungeon in Glendale California for three years before the building we were leasing was sold and our lease was not renewed by the new owners. I then joined Mistress Alexx Black in West Hollywood and worked with her in her dungeon Pandemonium while searching for a new location to open My own dungeon.
In late 2000‚ I met Mistress Omega and Mistress Nicole‚ who had just opened Omega’s Lair in Reseda‚ CA. After renting a room for a couple sessions‚ I was invited to become a partner in the dungeon. I moved My dungeon furniture into the building and the three of us operated the dungeon as a partnership for the next year or so until Mistress Omega decided that it was not financially feasible for her and wanted to give the place up. Neither Mistress Nicole nor I wanted to do so‚ so I assumed Mistress Omega’s share and Mistress Nicole and I continued business as Sanctuary. About a year later‚ I assumed full ownership when Mistress Nicole made some personal life decisions and retired.
I was invited to become a member of The Los Angeles Leather Coalition in 2005 after receiving six nominations in the 2005 Southland Honors. I then received seven more nominations in the 2006 Southland Honors and was presented The Fundraiser of The Year Award for 2006. I have also received eight nominations in the 2006 Pantheon of Leather Awards and was presented the 2006 Pantheon of Leather Community Choice (Woman) Award. In March of 2007‚ The Los Angeles Leather Coalition presented Me with The Mentor of The Year Award for 2007 and was presented The Treasurers Award in 2008. In 2009‚ I was awarded Fundraiser of the year for the second time and was named the 2009 Pantheon of Leather Woman of The Year. I was named Woman of the Year in Los Angeles in 2017 and 2019 and named Mentor of the Year in 2019 for the second tome.
I was honored to be a Judge in the 2006 Mr L.A. Leather Contest‚ the first time such an honor has been bestowed on a member of the Transgender Community. I was also chosen to represent The Los Angeles Leather Community as a Judge for The Los Angeles Pride Parade in 2006. In 2007‚ The City of West Hollywood gave Me a Commendation for leadership and charity in the Community and was named as a 2007 Honoree by Christopher Street West and awarded the 2007 Connie Norman Award for Community Service and Leadership. I was asked to Judge The 2008 Southern California Leather Woman Contest‚ The 2009 Central Canada Olympus Leather Contest. The 2010 Mr Palm Springs Leather Contest and Judge The 2010 Mr. Ms Southeast Olympus Leather Contest and has judged The Mr & Ms Rocky Mountain Leather Contest twice just to name a few.
I am The Founder and Executive Producer of DomCon LA and DomCon Atlanta. I started DomCon in 2004 and is The World’s Premier Professional and Lifestyle Domination Convention‚ drawing people from countries as far away as England. The Netherlands‚ Germany‚ Italy‚ Thailand‚ Singapore‚ Japan‚ and Egypt. Plans are currently in the works to bring DomVon abroad to such places as Amsterdam‚ Berlin‚ London‚ Paris and Australia. In 2009‚ I became the Co-Producer of International Olympus Leather. I have produced The Lair at The AVN Adult Entertainment Expo at The Hard Rock Hotel/Casino in Las Vegas since January 2015. I am now helping produce Torture Garden Los Angeles at The Globe Theater in Los Angeles.
I am proud of the fact that I am the only person in Southern California and one of the very few in this entire country‚ who has produced major conventions‚ promoted fetish nightclubs‚ performed at many major fetish clubs and events‚ produces Leather Contests‚ owns My own Dungeon and is also active in the BDSM and Leather Lifestyle. I am the Founder /Organizer and Executive Producer of DomCon LA and DomCon Atlanta‚ and now New Orleans for over 17 years and am the Owner/Operator of Sanctuary Studios LAX‚ the largest dungeon in Los Angeles with a staff of more than 40 BDSM professionals.
I have performed at The Los Angeles Fetish Ball‚ The Los Angeles Bondage Ball‚ The Los Angeles Rubber Ball‚ Erotic City‚ LA Pride‚ Long Beach Pride‚ Club Fetish‚ Club DV8‚ Club Funeral‚ Dallas Fetish Ball‚ Denver Fetish Ball and more‚ as well as at shows all over the USA including San Francisco ‚ New York‚ Las Vegas‚ Tampa and Atlanta.
I consider Myself a progressive and innovative thinker and am not afraid to set new standards‚ break new ground or accept responsibility. In February 2007‚ Sanctuary and I became the first pansexual organization in Los Angeles to sponsor a feeder contest and select a Leather Titleholder to represent Sanctuary in the 2007 Mr Los Angeles Leather Contest and founded The West Coast Olympus Leather Contest in 2008. In 2014‚ I held the first Ms Sanctuary Leather Contest‚ the only Womens Leather Contest in Los Angeles. It inspired the formation of The Ms LA Leather Contest in 2016 by the former Ms Sannctuary Leather 2014.. I am proud to say that 3 of the last 5 Ms Los Angeles Leather Titleholders have come from Sanctuary.
I have served as President of two of the largest FemDom groups in Los Angeles and served on The Board of Advisors for The Los Angeles Chapter of Club FEM. I am currently on the Board of Directors for both LA Pride and The Los Angeles Leather Coalition and hold the office of Secretary of both Boards.
I always try to be there to help others. I mentor others and help educate the BDSM and Leather Communities by teaching classes and presenting workshops. I have been featured as a Presenter at International Ms Leather (ImsL)‚ Club FEM Los Angeles‚ Ottawa LeatherFest (Ottawa‚ Canada)‚ Behind Closed Doors (Tucson‚ AZ)‚ Orange Coast Leather Association’s Taster‚ Threshold’s Carnal Carnival‚ Los Angeles Pride‚ Long Beach Pride‚ San Diego Pride‚ San Diego Leather Realm‚ Great Lakes Leather Alliance Weekend in Indianapolis‚ DomCon Los Angeles and DomCon Atlanta and New Orleans‚ and have been invited to present and perform at Ottawa Leather in 2008‚ 2009 and 2010. I have also been a guest speaker at numerous colleges and universities in including Stanford University‚ UCLA‚ Occidental Collegs‚ Cal State LA‚ Cal State Northridge and more.
In June 2015‚ I was diagnosed with stage 4a tonsil cancer and spent most of the latter half of the year undergoing chemo and radiation therapy. After a long hard fight‚ all indications are that I won the battle and am now back on My feet celebrating 5 years of remission.
I am open to adding select new slaves to My stable‚ but I am a bit picky. I expect sincerity and dedication‚ and of course Trust‚ Honor and Respect. Prospective slaves should be willing to serve without expecting sex in return from Me‚ that will NOT happen. I will see that your needs are taken care of‚ through other means. Prospective slaves should be financially secure or actively employed‚ and into protocol‚ as that is something that I love.
I do Mentor select individuals who show a sincere desire to learn what they are doing and offer private consultation and teaching to individuals and couples. I also offer a comprehensive program teaching all aspects of the Lifestyle dealing with everything from the mental and psychological aspects of a BDSM Relationship to the Dynamics Of The Relationship that includes the practice of 24/7 and Scene Techniques. Those interested in private instruction or consultation May contact Me at MistressCyan@gmail.com

Now a little information about My life pre-Mistress Cyan… Although I grew up in what most people would say was a “nprmal” family‚ my life has been anything but “normal”.
After spending years as a Corporate Executive‚ I left to pursue My dreams in the businesses of Music and Professional Domination. I started My own Production Company promoting over 1500 concerts‚ 300 of which were on The Sunset Strip in Hollywood at such legendary venues as The Whisky a GoGo‚ The Roxy Theater‚ Gazzarris pn The Strip and The Troubadour. I owned a Talent Management Company‚ a Media Relations Company and published My own Music and Entertainment Magazine. This gave Me the freedom to live the BDSM Lifestyle and develop My skills as a Dominatrix. In 1996‚ I decided to make Professional Domination My career!
I’ve enjoyed success as a Bondage & Fetish Model as well as an actress. Yes‚ I AM a Bondage and Fetish Model. I have been a Semi-Finalist for Bondage Model of The Year and Bondage Rigger of The Year for four consecutive years in years past. I am not doing as much of that as I would like now since My fight with cancer. I have appeared in a number of mainstream television shows and movies including Star Trek Insurrection‚ Nip/Tuck (FX)‚ Shark (CBS)‚ Las Vegas (NBC)‚ EdTV‚ Rock Star‚ Ally MacBeal (FOX)‚ Felicity (UPN)‚ First Monday (CBS)‚ and more.
I am happy to be living as the woman I always knew I was and doing the things I love. I am Transsexual‚ and cannot imagine living My entire life in denial‚ or living My life as a lie. I did not choose to be transsexual‚ but I DID choose to accept it rather than deny it. I take pride in My honesty and am proud of who I am. I really feel fortunate to be able to say that as I know there are too many people in the world that cannot. My Lifestyle has also given Me the freedom to make another dream come true…
I am honored to have opened the door and broken down barriers for transgenderfolk in both the business of Professional Domination and The Leather Community in Los Angeles. Being the firsttransperson to be selected as a Judge in the Mr. Los Angeles Leather Contest‚ and the first transperson to serve as an officer for The Los Angeles Leather Coalition has helped pave the way for people like Me in the future
