I got back from IML last night and had an amazing time, which I’ll go more into detail with later. I did want to let everyone know the results.
Coming in as the 2nd runner-up is my good friend Jack Duke, Mr Texas Leather. He spent a lot of time preparing and I’m very proud of how well he did. The 1st runner-up is Lance Holman, Mr San Francisco Leather. I have no clue who he is.
The winner though is Tyler McCormick, Mr. Rio Grande Leather. He is a transgender man in a wheelchair. The first question people have when they hear that second sentence is, “Did he win because of those things?” I didn’t attend any of the contest, so I wanted to check with those that did. Everyone I talked to gave me a resounding “YES!”
Yes, he may be trans and in a wheelchair, but he’s still a fellow leatherman, and that’s all that should matter. Give support to our new International Mr Leather.
I would like to congratulate all my other friends that competed. Y’all did an amazing job and even just getting to IML is quite the accomplishment!
And if you still have any questions, check out this video of him below, especially his speech.
