CHICAGO — Mr. Chicago Leather 2017, Gerald “Daddy G” Cernak, was sent off to IML on Saturday, May 20, with a party at Chicago’s Touche.

The send-off party was a fundraiser for both the MCL travel fund and Rainbow Railroad, an organization that helps LGBTQ people escape from hostile countries like Chechnya. More than $500 was raised both during performances and a raffle.

Chicago drag queen Muffy Fishbasket did a performance starting out with Kellyanne Conway’s notorious inauguration outfit then switching to Harley Quinn toward the end, getting a huge approval from the crowd.

The Windy City Sisters of Perpetual indulgence were also on hand to wish Daddy G good luck and, after having him walk on water (water sprinkled on the floor), parting the red C and curing the blind (putting MIR 17 Jeffery Basile’s glasses back on), declared him Saint VPL, patron saint of boys in gray sweat shorts.

Daddy G will be one of three contestants representing the city at International Mr. Leather this week.
