It is with heavy hearts that we say good bye to VLI’s founding president Nathan Niessen (Nießen). He died as a result of a single vehicle accident in his home town of Lismore.
His vision for VLI was to create an organisation available to all to come together to explore the many mysteries and joys of a Leather Lifestyle.
He was a generous spirit who openly shared his personal challenges in the hope that it would help others to know they weren’t alone.
It was always such a joy to see him arrive at GearUp in his signature black and yellow leather and rubber, a cheeky grin on his face, and ready for whatever adventures the night ahead may bring.
May you find peace in this new chapter of your journey Nathan. Thank you for the life you lived. Your vision has changed the lives of many and you will be always remembered in our hearts.
Rest In Peace my beautiful friend.
On behalf of the VLI committee
