Call for Eastern Canada LeatherSIR/Leatherboy contestants

ECLSb 2013 Contest Weekend

Contestant registration is now open for ECLSb 2013 contest in March

(Toronto, Ontario, CA) – Contestant registration is open for the Eastern Canada LeatherSIR / Leatherboy 2013 contests. Eastern Canada LeatherSIR / Leatherboy (ECLSb) are erotic titles and often referred to as the “bad boys” of leather contests. One of the defining characteristics about this contest from other contests is the up front statement that it’s about sex. Both the contest and titles are about representing the sexual side of gay leathermen. Our primary goal is networking and outreach, to help educate the community about leathermen, our erotic expression, traditions and history – and of course, hot leather play and sex!

Unlike many leather titles, ECLSb titleholders are largely self-directed, without a long list of stringent duties and rules. Titleholders chose how to fit their title responsibilities into their daily lives. ECLSb organizers are available to assist and support whenever required, but do not dictate how to run your life during your title year.

There are often misconceptions about being an ECLSb titleholder. Even though you (or someone you know) might not yet be ready to commit, anyone whose curiosity about the title or competing is piqued, is encouraged to contact the contest producers with questions.

ECLSb 2013 weekend will run Thursday, March 28 through Sunday, March 31 (the Easter holiday weekend). The weekend will feature seven events over four days. For a complete roster of events, visit the Contest Weekend page.
