The Eastern Canada LeatherSIR / Leatherboy contest is always on the look out for Sir and boy contestants. Even though you might not yet be ready to commit, if your curiosity is piqued, please e-mail us with your questions and comments.
The Eastern Canada LeatherSIR / Leatherboy contest is part of the International LeatherSIR / Leatherboy family.The contest is open to gay leathermen and leatherboys from the Eastern Canada contest region – which is comprised of Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada. You do not need to be a local titleholder to compete. Local contestants may be sponsored by a club or business, or, as is the case with all titleholders to date, be self-sponsored. But you must meet and agree to the list of Contestant Qualifications.You might say we’re the “bad boys” of leather contests. The LeatherSIR / Leatherboy contests grew out of the now defunct International Mr Drummer and International Drummerboy contests. One of the defining characteristics about this contest from other contests is the up front statement that it’s about sex.
LeatherSIR / Leatherboy are erotic titles. 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 sex!
Contestants are judged in four categories: Interview; Formal Speech; Physique; and Leather Sex Fantasy. The interview is a private meeting in the afternoon with the judges; the other categories happen on stage during the contest. In previous years regions were assigned a theme for the Fantasy portion: this is no longer the case, so contestants are free to devise a theme to suit their own kinks/fetishes/desires!
The fantasy portion is what sets our contests apart for those styled after the International Mr. Leather and Mid-Atlantic Leather formats. (Want to compete but curious or worried about “the fantasy?” Click here.)
Eastern Canada is one of 16 regions in North America that make up the International LeatherSIR / Leatherboy family. The Eastern Canada titleholders must compete at the International LeatherSIR / Leatherboy competition in Dallas, Texas from August 31 to September 2, 2013 (Labor Day Weekend). The international contest follows the same four regional judging categories.
Titleholders must appear in their regional contests at the conclusion of their title year to award the next year’s winners.
Eastern Canada LeatherSIR and Leatherboy serve as ambassadors: for their region; for their LeatherSIR / Leatherboy family; and, when traveling abroad, for their Canadian leather community. But unlike many community titles, the work schedule and itinerary is to a large degree self-directed by the titleholders. Your life remains your own. There is no absolute calendar of appointments and list of commitments.
Titleholders are encouraged to attend leather and gay community events in the region; promote the LeatherSIR / Leatherboy contests and philosophy; spread brotherhood; and, to reach out to those who are interested or curious about the leather/fetish community, and our history and traditions. But, obviously, the work you chose to do has to fit within the realities of your life – and that’s your decision.
