Due to the current Covid surge this winter, our contest weekend will be postponed. We are looking to reschedule this event in the coming spring.
We are honored to have International Mr Leather 2019 Jack Thompson return o serve on our panel of judges for the 2022 Mr Chicago Leather Contest.
It would not be an MCL contest weekend without John Pendal, IML 2003 back to host the contest events over the weekend. After the break in 2021, this will be John's 18th year as our M.C.
