SPONSORING & INITIATIVES

At MR. Riegillio, we believe that diversity and inclusivity are not just buzzwords – they are fundamental values that guide everything we do. That's why we are committed to representing people of all genders, sexual orientations, and identities in our designs and marketing. We celebrate the beauty of every body and every kink, embracing the full spectrum of human sexuality.

As a company deeply rooted in the queer and fetish communities, we understand the importance of visibility and support. That's why we actively seek out opportunities to collaborate with and sponsor events, organizations, and individuals who share our commitment to celebrating diversity and breaking down barriers. Whether it's through sponsoring pride festivals, supporting local queer artists, or partnering with grassroots fetish organizations, we are dedicated to using our platform to uplift and amplify queer and fetish voices.

When you support MR. Riegillio, you're not just purchasing clothing – you're joining us as we work to create a world where everyone is free to express themselves authentically and without fear of judgment. Thank you for being a part of our journey, and thank you for helping us support the queer and fetish communities in everything we do. Together, we can make a difference.

Take a look at some of the amazing events and initiatives that we are a part of. 

Gerard

Gerard de Gier makes art. In itself, there is nothing special about it. Were it not that Gerard has a muscle disease. And that disease is decisive for the realization of his works of art. In other words: because Gerard has limited control over his muscles, his art form is created. So there is a story behind it. Unique, because this is Gerard's story. Universal because Gerard as a brand is an example for everyone who fights with a lingering illness or disability.

We started working together with Gerard to feature his shirt "Boulevard", a limited edition of real art on fashion, made with certified recycled materials and handcrafted by Gerard himself. That way, we want to highlight the importance of Gerard's message: Everything is possible when you put your head around it, never give up your dreams and keep challenging yourself.

Darklands

Since years, we have been a Platinum Sponsor of Darklands, an annual festival in Antwerp, that is a prominent event within the international fetish community. It gathers fetish enthusiasts from around the world for a weekend of exploration, celebration, and camaraderie. The festival typically features a diverse array of activities, including parties, performances, workshops, and vendors offering their amazing gear. It provides a safe and inclusive space for attendees to express themselves authentically and connect with like-minded individuals, while also promoting acceptance and understanding of diverse kinks and lifestyles.

You can find all information about our efforts supporting the festival on our dedicated Darklands Page

Pride Amsterdam

Pride Amsterdam is one of the largest LGBTQ+ celebrations in the Netherlands and Europe. Held annually at the end of July, it celebrates the LGBTQ+ community's history, culture, and ongoing struggle for equality and acceptance. The event typically spans over a week and includes a variety of activities such as parades, parties, art exhibitions, film screenings, panel discussions, and more. Pride Amsterdam serves as a platform for advocacy, visibility, and solidarity, bringing together people from all walks of life to celebrate diversity and promote LGBTQ+ rights. It attracts both locals and visitors from around the world, creating a vibrant and inclusive atmosphere throughout the city.

In 2023, MR. Riegillio celebrated the LGBTQ+ community by hosting a fashion show on the main stage at Dam Square. 

Additionally, MR. Riegillio is the main sponsor of the Bear & Fetish Boats during the Canal Parade of Pride Amsterdam, held on August 3rd, 2024.

Pride Cologne

Pride Cologne, also known as CSD Köln (Christopher Street Day Köln), is an annual LGBTQ+ pride festival held in Cologne, Germany. It celebrates and remembers the Stonewall riots that occurred in New York City in 1969, marking a significant moment in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights. Pride Cologne typically includes a vibrant parade through the city center, as well as a variety of cultural and other events. It attracts thousands of participants and supporters from all over the country and beyond, making it one of the largest pride events in Germany.

Since 2022, MR. Riegillio joins the CSD Köln by representing the fetish community with a truck, promoting visibility and acceptance.

Pride Utrecht

Similar to the Pride Amsterdam and Cologne, MR. Riegillio takes part in Utrecht's Canal Pride celebrations for 2024 & 2023, supporting the leather fetish community on a boat, organized by Letaher Social Utrecht.

Elections

Elections in the fetish community carry considerable weight, particularly concerning the representation of various groups. In a community as diverse as the fetish world, representation extends beyond mere vocalization; it encompasses visibility, empowerment, and the assurance that every member feels acknowledged and embraced.
