Sights seen at International Mr. Leather in Chicago

 Who’s a good boy?  Woof!Etienne art. From the historic Gold Coast. Now on display at the Leather Archives and Museum.     The original leather flag. By Tony DeBlaise. 1989. LAM. 

Peter Fiske’s Jacket with 15 Association colors. 

Morris Taylor art.   The California contestants.   Numbers 19 and 20. Al Parso on the right. 52-card pick up, anyone?  Innovative footwear…. 

Rats! For real. Sight seen at IML. 


Sign seen near host hotel at IML. International Mr. Leather. If some of the pups here were really pawing around for realness, they’d catch these critters in their mouths and bring them in as offerings. Don’t hold your breath, y’all. It’s mostly just all about the outfits – and sure, a bit of sex. 

Is “The Beard” a Furry Fancier? SF Giants Pitcher dates Sasquatch!

One of this blog’s most popular posts asked whether San Francisco Giants pitcher Brian Wilson is gay and kinky. Click here. He’s been known to offer “sugar” to the mysterious leather-clad “Machine” and now he seems to be dating Sasquatch. Are they one in the same? The Beard and the Squatch showed up together for the ESPY Awards.  Is the bearded pitcher advocating furry sex for butch guys? Hey, there were furries (or “plushophiles”) at IML this year. That would be International Mr. Leather, not the Illinois Municipal League. I’m not saying having furries at a Leather event is a good thing or a bad thing…but it IS a thing! For Brian Wilson at the Beef Bar, click here.
