Mr Leather competition turns up the heat

Contestants strip down, live out fantasies; event featured performances by Dixie Landers, Miss Jenn

After several years away from Barrymore’s, the Mr Leather Ottawa competition returned to its most popular venue for the event’s 15th year. The weekend-long event opened with a Friday night roast of Gerry “Squeaky” Legault, Mr Leather Ottawa 2007.

Saturday, leather enthusiasts browsed the leather fair and seminars. After refuelling at the formal leather dinner, they moved on to the MLO competition, which every year is open to the public.

Breathless mistress Miss Jenn’s opened with a rendition of “When You’re Good to Mama” from the musical Chicago.

Contestants gave a speech, answered questions from the judges and enacted fantasy scenes, vying for the top prize, including Richard Hubley’s bathtub fantasy and Martin Boulet’s X-rated boot camp. Dixie Landers entertained the troops before the winner was announced: Richard Hubley.
