We are gearing up for the 2011 Mr Midwest Leather Contest,and it should be bigger and better than last year. Our goal this year is to get over 400 attending the contest held this year in St. Louis, MO. The contest will be Friday, Sept. 30 and Saturday, Oct. 1, 2011.
The winner of the Mr Midwest Leather title not only represents the Midwest Leather community, but has to be an enthusiastic supporter of related causes and events, as well as being well versed in Leather lore and culture. The title is not just about the sash; it's a means for doing good for the community. Being confident while answering questions in minimal Leather attire doesn't hurt, either.
The actual contest venue will be Bad Dog Bar & Grill, 3960 Chouteau Avenue, St. Louis MO 63110. Friday night will be the Meet & Greet where the contestants are introduced to the audience and judges. Saturday afternoon will be the judges interviews (closed to the public) and Saturday night will be the actual contest judging.
Following the contest will be the Mr Midwest Leather Ball at Bad Dog, where the audience can meet the new Mr Midwest Leather, the judges and other Leather title holders past and present, as well as dance and enjoy beverage specials till 3am.
Judges at the 2011 Mr Midwest Leather Contest include Mama, internationally known Leatherwoman and Leather Community organizer from San Francisco, St. Louis' Karen Crecelius, first runner up for Ms World Leather 2004, Terry Laupp, Mr Missouri Leather 2010 and co-founder of the Black and Lou Pride Fetish Ball, Philip Hitchcock, Mr Midwest Leather 2010, artist and supporter of the Tom of Finland Foundation, Mike Pagano, Mr Iowa Leather 2011, working to raise general awareness about the leather/fetish community, especially among people in their 20’s and 30’s who represent leathers' future.
