BIO: A Midwestern native with deep Southern roots, Legionnaire was born in Chicago, Illinois and is the number 2 son in a mixed family that includes 4 boys and 3 girls. Growing up developing a love of comic, art and superheroes, he has been reading comics since the 80s and later developed a love of gaming that includes the late City of Heroes online game and his current obsession of Marvel Heroes Online.
Also a veteran of the US Air Force, it was in Germany that he fully began to explore his sexuality, developing a love of men wearing leather and cultivating a love of kink and fetish. Those experiences led him to join ONYX, a leather fraternity for men of color. He has been a vital part of the growth of that organization and been involved in other organizations in the Chicago LGBT and leather community, finding fulfillment in being a part of fundraising efforts over many years.
Currently a husband, father, fetish kinkster, burgeoning activist, gaymer and proud gay geek, he brings all those fascinating fascets of his life to co-hosting Reali-TEA, and looks forward to enjoying being a part of the Papi Chulo RADIO family. Legionnaire is one of the co-hosts of Reali-TEA, The Rambling Dead: The Unofficial The Walking Dead Internet Radio Show, The S.H.I.E.L.D. Files: The Unofficial Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
