Vincent Andrews was born in Wichita, Kansas, where he spent the first 26 years of his life living and searching for a place within the GBLT community.

Andrews discovered his desire for leather in his early twenties. After hiding his desires from his loved ones and partners for some time, he finally gave in and decided to embrace his desires. Since that time he has dedicated his time and volunteered his services to a broad range of projects. In 2002 he coordinated the first Wichita Leather Pride weekend with Heart of America Leatherwoman 2002, Cindy Sapp.

During this same time he and other men of similar interests in leather and kink pulled together to form an organization that could provide others in the same position with the opportunity to meet people of like interests. In August of 2002, W.O.O.L.F. (Wichita Organization of Leather Fetishes) was formed. Andrews held the position of publicist within W.O.O.L.F., focusing on promoting and growing the organization and the community. He contributed the design of the club colors and co-produced the events, along with designing most of their graphics. In the fall of 2002 he competed for and won the title of Kansas boy Leather 2003, the first year this title was awarded.

In 2003 boy vince moved to Kansas City and became part of the community there. He joined the KC boys of Leather and restructured and rewrote the bylaws of the club to help revitalize and strengthen it within the community. He was elected President of the KC boys for this work, and during his term as president he played an active role in publicizing the group, He played an active role in setting up functions the KC boys of Leather could use for raising money to give to various charities. The fundraising opportunities he helped set up during his presidency also assisted the club to continue their fundraising efforts once his term was completed, and in the year 2005 the KC boys of Leather raised $4000.00. During boy vince’s presidency the club became a viable resource for the overall community, and was nominated for a Pantheon of Leather award in both 2005 and 2006. The KC boys of Leather won pantheon in 2006 for small club.

boy vince has helped various leather clubs throughout the country with their diverse formation and structuring needs. He has helped with tasks such as designing club logos, creating or revising by-laws, and creating and distributing published media to publicize organizations and their events. boy vince has participated in many educational leather classes across the Midwest, and is known for being very passionate about education in the leather lifestyle. He is currently a member of several local leather groups, and has served as President of the National Leather Association – International, elected in 2006, doing the same work he has become known for in the Midwest, only now on an international level. He spent many years doing custom leather. He was the creator of the IMsL sashes and Boot Black patches from 2005 through 2007, as well as many other sashes and patches in the Midwest.

In the past when a potential leatherboy has asked me, where do I start I had to guide them to a dozen publications and even then the information was incomplete. Now the answer is simple, The leatherboy Handbook! This book is a wonderful resource for anyone interested in the “boy subculture”. Vincent Andrews draws on his own experiences in the leather community as well as some of the best source material available to create what will surely become the companion volume to Larry Townsend’s Leatherman’s Handbook.
    
In a clear and concise voice with numerous references, “boy vince” has created a goldmine for the budding leatherboy, no matter what his gender. Most importantly, this book explains much of the “why” behind the boy experience, and that is the key to its value. I heartily recommend this book for both boys and Daddys, subs and Doms. It is a good read and a requisite for any leather/kink library.
