About MR.LEATHER64TEN 2019:
The MR.LEATHER64TEN contest and weekend events were created to help the Chicagoland leather community explore, celebrate and showcase their leather pride.
“Our contest started only 4 years ago and we are amazed at the support and participation that we continue to receive. We are very excited to bring our 4th annual MR.LEATHER64TEN contest back to the leather community and look forward to meeting all of you during this exciting weekend. We have two amazing organizations involved this year as beneficiaries of our raffle sales: Leather Archives & Museum and CLAW Nation.
