Besides harnesses, Zana Bayne also offers a full line of handbags and collections of elegant leather works comprised of skirts, tops, bustiers, shoes, belts, collars, and hats, and the brand has been seen on so many celebrities and notable folks, the likes of which include (but not limited to) Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Lil Nas X, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Kesha, Violet Chachki, Barbie Ferreira, Orville Peck, Megan Thee Stallion, Madonna, Måneskin, and many, many more.
One of those notable folks includes Dr. Demetre Daskalakis, who made headlines recently as the CDC's out and proud health expert after President Joe Biden hand-picked him to help lead the charge in the response to America's ongoing monkeypox outbreak. While being picked to be the White House's National Monkeypox Response Deputy Coordinator is a big deal, right-wing conservatives have been absolutely tearing their hair out over the hunky gay doctor (who previously covered an issue of our sister publication Plus) because of the fact that he has a pentagram tattoo on his chest, the fact that he loves to unabashedly sport leather gear in his free time, and good, old-fashioned homophobia.
"I am certainly not a satanist," Daskalakis told our sister publication The Advocate about all of the recent conservative backlash he's been getting for being himself, rocking tattoos and harnesses. But why do people think he is? “It's because I wear high-fashion harnesses by Zana Bayne,” he adds, shouting out the beloved leather goods brand.
While he isn't a satanist, Daskalakis is helping keep our country healthy — and he sure does look good in some Zana Bayne!
