International Mr. Leather Contest 2013

June 2, 2013 Posted by suefairview

I would like to thank International Mr. Leather for granting me a press pass to their events this year.

One week ago today, the International Mr. Leather Contest was held in the Harris Theater and what a wonderful venue it was! Before the show started, the reighning Mr. International Leather (2012), Mr. Woody Woodruff was standing around having his photo taken. Press was given seats in the front, and just a few seats away from mine, was Sister Roma! Blond, blue-eyed and delicious, was Mr. Midwest Rubber. Everyone was photographing him!!! Sister Roma poses with a dark and mysterious leather man. The show’s host. The 50 leathermen vying for International Mr. Leather. Chuck Renslow and his partner Juan. Each contestant gave a short speech and walked the stage in just a jock. It seems they had no idea where the photographers were, or didn’t care. The International Mr. Bootblack 2013 winner was Sammy from Portland, OR, who was so overjoyed that he literally jumped up and down on the stage. The entertainment was Beverly McLellan, who made the final four on “The Voice”. She sang Janis Joplin and was well liked by the audience. Next, the winners were announced. The Second Runner-up was Robert Miller, Mr. Leather Toronto 2013. The First Runner-up was Thib Guicherd-Callin, Mr. Santa Clara County Leather 2012. The winner was Andy Cross – Mr. San Francisco Leather 2013! My seatmates and I picked him as a favorite, along with Mr. Santa Clara early on. He sure did stand out! Congratulations to all the winners! I ran into this man wearing turquoise leather (turquoise is for CBT, in case you are wondering) who looked extremely emotional and I asked him why. It turns out his grandmother had died. She was very old and it was her time, but she had always stood for him and his sexual identity even against those in his family who gave him a hard time about it. So he was understandably saddened by her passing. I offered him a hug and he accepted. His beard was the softest thing! I went upstairs with him and he got more emtional support for the two gentlemen who were waiting to see the winners in person. My portrait of the winners. Mr. International Leather 2013, andy Cross. Mr. Cross was kind enough to pose with me, even though I wasn’t wearing any make up!

I would like to thank International Mr. Leather for granting me a press pass to their events this year. Congratulations to Andy Cross, International Mr. Leather 2013, also Mr. San Francisco Leather. My seatmates and I were rooting for you, Andy! See all of the results at International Mr. Leather!

Notes: I met Matt at the bar, as I was getting my camera ready to enter the Leather Market. He was very friendly; and wanted to show me his green lightning bolt wallet that he got on Esty.com, whodini is the artist; Tom Wolfe joking around with Hunter Marx at the ManHunt booth. ManHunt had a super idea this year – have the models put their jockstraps on the guys; meanwhile, Tom leans back to enjoy Hunter’s strength; a close-up of Tom’s ass; Tom decides to give me a private show and Connor Patrick is there to help; Connor rims Tom; Jay Black gets into the action with a blow job; now that is a pretty picture; Jay in a solo photo; Draven Torres leads the Fort Troff crew in some sit-ups; it was all over very fast, and I couldn’t get good photos, but Draven loves pain and collapses happily and hotly; he adds the goggles for the full effect; what better time for a little beating?; Lawson Kane poses with a fan; Alessio Romero is all tied up on the Bound Jocks booth; Dirk Caber “Trains” a sub; Topher Dimaggio fixed my hair before I took this photo!; classy and fierce shop gurl; had rad Elvish tattoos on her chest – can you read them?; JR Bronson is a customer!; the cobalt blue is perfect on him; JR checks his look in the mirror, giving us a view of his ass; back to the ManHunt booth, where Tom is being manhandled by a colleague; they pose; and again; and kiss. Tom has retired and I think that is great. He intends to go back and finish his doctorate. I just hope that 20 years from now he doesn’t realize what a hot stud he was at 30 and regret that he quit so early. But he can always come back!; Tom bends over backwards; this man is getting a new ManHunt jock. Tom begins by untying the shoes and removing them, then sensually undoing the belt and pant’s opening and lowering the pants. I so wanted to be a gay man!; down come the pants; all the way down; off of each leg; now it is the jock coming off – you can see in the background that Hunter is doing the same process to another individual; what a surprise, the customer is erect! How did that happen?; eye contact from Tom is electric, trust me, the man can turn it on; Fabio Stallone was at the Leather Market; this German puppy was so cute and lovable, I petted him and wanted to take him home; here he is without the mask, isn’t he the cutest?; Ryan Rose; Dirk Caber is ready for his “Training”; a blindfolded Dirk is teased by a mystery tattooed man as Jesse Jackman looks on; Jesse gets his phone ready to film the big event; JR is in the audience; Dirk is blown by his trainer; Dirk sees his trainer; a close-up of the action; Dirk is in ecstasy; very close-up; JR and Jesse make muscles; Raphael Alencar shows me the goods; Alessio Romero and a pal; Chris Porter was solo working at Nasty Pig.

I have returned from a most fabulous trip to Chicago where I attended the 2013 Grabby Awards and 35th International Mr. Leather Contest! OMG! The MEN! Quite overwhelming! I met the nicest people and reunited with old friends!

But, please be patient. I took hundreds of photos and am only one person. So it is going to take me some time to get them all processed and posted. I am also going to set up a Flickr site for those photos not posted, so that people will have access to the extra photos. Please give me photo credit if you use one of my photos!

Posting should begin tomorrow…

I am very excited about the Hydrate Party, because last year, Fabscout Howard gave me access to the dressing rooms and I got some, shall we say, risque photos of the boys! This year, Draven Torres, Trenton Ducati and Landon Conrad will be there, and I can’t wait to see them again!

Saturday night of course is the GRABBYS!
