“International” Mr. Leather, Indeed
This year’s International Mr. Leather (IML) contest showed once again how truly “international” it has become.
Eric Guttierez, Mr. Leather Europe 2010, was chosen the new International Mr. Leather on May 29. In his speech during the contest, Guttierez described himself as “a typical European mix.” His parents are from Spain, he grew up near the Belgian frontier, and he now lives in the French Alps near the Swiss border.
First runner-up was Douglas Pamplin, Mr. Mid-Atlantic Leather 2011. Second runner-up was Anthony Rollar, Mr. San Diego Leather 2010. The new International Mr. Bootblack is Jim Deuder from New York.
