From Out Magazine:

The site of the leather bar Eagle LA in Los Angeles has been home to three highly popular leather bars over the decades—the Shed from 1968-1972, the Outcast from 1972-1983, and the famous Gauntlett II from 1983-2005. The Eagle LA, which opened its doors in 2006, follows a long-standing tradition of leather fetish and uniform set forth by leather Eagle bars around the country.

In 2011, photographer John Arsenault (born 1971) took a job as a barback or “barmaid” (as he liked to refer to the position) at the Eagle LA where he felt he was meant to be at this moment in his life.
