(Toronto) – Eastern Canada LeatherSIR/Leatherboy weekend will take place Friday, February 18, 2011 through Monday, February 21, 2011. Presenting Sponsor of the ECLSb contest weekend is Steamworks, the official bathhouse of ECLSb 2011. Organizers are pleased to announce the Judges Panel for the ECLSb 2011 contest, which will be held at 1pm on Saturday, February 19, 2011 at Goodhandy’s (120 Richmond St) in Toronto.

Serving on the ECLSb 2011 panel of judges:

  • International LeatherSIR 2010 Hugh Russell, from Seattle (WA) who will serve as head judge;
  • International Leatherboy 2010 Ian, from Hamilton (ON);
  • International Community Bootblack 2010 RedWarrior, from Jacksonville (FL);
  • Eastern Canada LeatherSIR 2010 Marc Poisson, from Niagara Falls (ON); and,
  • Peter Dillon, Mr Leatherman Toronto 2009, from Toronto (ON).

Tally Master will be Anthoney Perkins, Mid-Atlantic Leatherboy 2010, from Washington (DC). Judge’s boy will be Pup Kalen, from Toronto (ON).

Den Daddy will be Matthew Pavelich, Mr Leatherman Toronto 2008, from Toronto (ON). Stage Manager for the contest will be Fenn, Mr International Rubber 2010, from Toronto (ON).

ECLSb contestants will be judged in four categories: Interview; Speech & Image; Physique; and Leather Sex Fantasy based on the region’s assigned theme. The contestant’s interview portion will take place in private with the judges prior to the contest; the three remaining categories take place on stage during the contest. This 2011 contest theme will be “Movies,” a theme that can include a wide range of BDSM play skills, however, contestants must incorporate this theme in some manner into their fantasy scene performed on stage during the contest. The fantasy portion is what sets the ECLSb contest apart from many other contests styled after the International Mr. Leather and Mid-Atlantic Leather formats.

LeatherSIR/Leatherboy are “player’s titles,” erotic titles representing the sexual side of gay leather men. The primary goal of ECLSb is networking and outreach, to help educate the community about leather men, our erotic expression, traditions and history ­and of course, BDSM and hot leather sex!

ECLSb contest weekend will run Friday, February 18 through Monday, February 21 (a civic long weekend in Ontario).
