QUOTATION OF THE WEEK

“A house is a family for those who don’t have a

family.”

– Pepper LaBeija, in “Paris Is Burning”

ROAD TRIP TO DC

Neptune and I hit the road to Washington, DC

on Wednesday. We love traveling in the car.

Car time is quality time. It is when we do some

of our best talking. We stayed with the Bitch of

Dupont Circle. Her sorority house is a very

welcoming place for us and she is a great host.

One highlight of the trip were going to Dave &

Busters with AJ. The three of us in kid mode.

Whee! Also went to dyke night at the DC Eagle

which had a nice turnout with both old friends and

new.

On Friday night we went to The Crucible. We

were impressed with the upgrades that Frazier has

done to the place – especially the ladies room.

We had busted our butts to get there early for the

Suspension class with Lew Rubens and Maria

Shadoes (www.boundndetermined.com). They

were late and did more of a demo than a class. I

tied Neptune in a hog-tie and sat back and watched

him struggle to get out. Then, together, we topped

an ABW titleholder. We won’t say who so as to

protect their gay/lesbian status… And

then the two of us spanked AJ with her new

ToyBag paddle.

BOYMEAT’S VIEW OF THE IML CONTEST

This year’s International Mr. Leather contest was

the 25th anniversary of the fabled institution, so a

big show was expected by all. And a big show was

delivered.

After a lovely opening act that included hunky

men dressed in leather shorts and masks in a

grand power struggle, the festivities truly begun.

Chuck Renslow, the founder of the original Gold

Coast Leather Bar (now the Chicago Eagle) and

IML, came out for his traditional opening speech.

Some people attend the conference to see the

hunky men, parade on the stage. Some people

attend to root for their local titleholder. Others yet

come for the entertainment. While I go for a

combination of the above, Chuck’s speech is

always something that I look forward to.

Chuck spoke of the leather scene’s great

successes, giving wonderful attention to the

growing understanding and appreciation of the

bootblack community, and the burgeoning

leather-boy clubs. He then spoke of the issues

that still surround us. The first he talked about

was the ever-existent dangers involved in

barebacking. Chuck spoke very poignantly about

this topic – “Some people would call barebacking

an informed personal decision. I call it stupid.”

The next topic he spoke about was the abuse of

party drugs. In the past year, we have seen too

many deaths caused by drug overdoses…. and

have heard and read of many other near deaths.

Chuck spoke up against this… asked of those in

the audience who planned on making drugs a part

of their evening’s festivities to look around them,

take note of who is sitting next to them, because it

may be the last time they’ll ever see them again. (I

should note that during the weekend, I was almost

attacked by someone off his rocker on crystal meth,

right in the hotel lobby.)

When all the contestants were out on stage, Guy

Baldwin came out to speak about the Leather

Archives & Museum (Located in Chicago, Serving

the World). In one year, the Archives will need to

pay the lump sum payment at the end of the

mortgage. Guy asked the audience to their best to

help pay off the sum. He suggested that all

fundraising for the year go to the Archives – a

valiant thought, but, impractical considering the

many places money is needed (the National

Coalition for Sexual Freedom certainly comes to

mind).

With that, Mr. Marcus came out and did his

traditional role of announcing the 20 finalists (there

were a total of 58 contestants this year). Now, it

must be said here… everyone who stands up there

on that stage deserves praise and respect just for

that alone. I remember when running for Gotham

Leatherman just how stressful and nerve-racking it

is to be standing to be judged. But, there must be

finalists. Us NY’ers sat on the edge of our seats

as one by one names got called out… all of the

Europeans, Texas, Chicago, California… and then,

finally… number 17 out of 20… our own Mr. LURE

Walt Weiss made the cut!

While I hear the entertainment was great, AJ and

I took the breaks as a chance to run out for a

smoke and hang out with all our friends in the

Congress Theater lobby! It’s always great to see

everyone in their finest leathers, cruising and

groping! I did a bit of that myself…

David Hawks came out to announce the

International Mr. Bootblack contest. The outgoing

Mr. Bootblack, NY’s Michael Lanzini had a lovely

step-down speech and spoke of his growth over the

year. To assist Michael in crowing the new winner,

Kari, the current International Ms. Bootblack walked

across the stage. She looked absolutely ravishing in

her hobble skirt and brand new Dehners… all the

boys were whistling and cat calling! When it was

all said and done, the muscled hunk from San

Francisco, Richie Chameroy took the title! After the

contest, all the contestants posed with Michael,

David, Kari, and the contest assistants in a group

photo. The photographers were certainly busy… I

lost count when they took the twelfth photo! Poor

Cristo, Mid-Atlantic Leather Bootblack (who was

there assisting), blinked for a long time after that.

NCSF had a banner year at this IML. Two

contestants chose to talk about the group in their

judged speeches on stage (quote of the night –

Donate today, suck dick tomorrow). Stephen

Weber, IML ’02 in his step-down speech

announced that he has signed up to be a NCSF

spokesperson! He’ll be working on the LEOP

program, promoting education to gay police

organizations. Thank you Stephen!!!!

Finally… it came down to the grand conclusion,

the sashing of International Mr. Leather 2003. 2nd

runner up is Stephen Blackwell from Los Angeles,

who spoke very eloquently about how boys can

also be leathermen (Stephen is the founder of the

LA Boys of Leather.) 1st runner up is Donald

Detson of Florida. International Mr. Leather 2003

is John Pendal, of London, a tall, woofy redhead!

Learn more about John at http://www.mrhoist.com/.

I wonder how he’s gonna get his brand new Harley-

Davidson (a part of the prize package) over to

England.. that is one heck of a drive!

Bill Stadt and company put on an amazing show

for their 25th anniversary year! And once again,

Frank Nowicki did an excellent job as MC… being

called by many that weekend the Premier Leather

emcee.

COMPLAINT DEPARTMENT

FifthAngel has become huffy and is pouting

because I reported his age as 38 and it’s actually

35. Sorry that I got your age wrong.

Mistress Lashes has accused me of all sorts of

stuff including anti-woman discrimination because

I left out the name of the other artist (Adriana
