Instructor Bio:

xiaoyi is a slaveheart and bootblack at large. She/they is a teacher, coach, and speaker on topics including self-improvement, living a fulfilling life, living with invisible illnesses, sexual identities, gender, and BDSM. She is poly, pansexual, omni-sensual, Leather, and queer. They are most fulfilled in a 24/7 TPE-style relationship. She loves leather, costuming, pain, and protocols. They flag orange and Leather Worship. They has been teaching since 2012. She is honored to be Owned by Master Dennis and is also the Southwest Bootblack 2016.

xiaoyi’s mission is to help create understanding and acceptance among people for each to learn and grow and be as they are. She works to do this through education and demystification. They serve their community before themselves. She is a coach and speaker who openly shares her journey in hopes that she might help others who face similar challenges.

Seldom shy or at a loss for words, xiaoyi enjoys deep philosophical, spiritual, and religious discussions. She does not retreat from difficult topics or hesitate to admit she doesn’t know something. They are often working at events, but when they have a spare moment to follow their passions, they will most often be found in her dress or stripped down, caring for someone’s leather. She has no problems switching between elegant hedonist and bootblack because, for her, blacking is hedonistic.

Her favorite color is rainbow and her favorite flower is tulips. They have a wry sense of humor and red hair. When asked if the curtains match the drapes, she will gladly tell you ‘“ I installed hardwood.”
