Thank you everyone for the great Mr Midwest Leather Contest and Midwest Leather Weekend

The producers of the Midwest Leather Weekend and Mr Midwest Leather Contest want to thank our volunteers, judges and contestants, Jeff and Jerry of JJ's Clubhouse and everyone who attended for a great Midwest Leather Weekend. 

The Judges Dinner at Blue Ocean was a full house with wonderful food and wonderful staff. They welcomed us with open arms and made us feel at home. We really appreciated the complementary appetizers. 

The Victory Brunch by Tenacious Eats was supurb. About 50 arrived for a delicious bruch with omelets and waffles made to order. Chef Elizabeth gave us a beautiful setting with incredible food. 

We look forward to doing it again with both Blue Ocean and Tenacious Eats again next year. 


Adam Heusinkveld of Chicago, Illinois, Mr Midwest Leather 2017

Three Outstanding Candidates for Mr Midwest Leather 2017

Adam Heusinkveld of Chicago, Illinois was named Mr Midwest Leather 2017

John 'Ginger Jack' Owen of Omaha, Nebraska was named First Runner Up

Kevin Farmer, aka Chewy Bones, of Roundlake, Illinois was Second Runner Up

The producers of the Mr Midwest Leather Contest were very impressed with all three contestants. While they each brought different qualities, it was hard to determine which one would take the title. But unfortunately the title can go only to one, but they are all three winners in our book. 

Photos of the contest are coming soon.

The Mr Midwest Leather Contest is held every year and open to Leathermen from Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Indiana, Missouri, Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio, North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, Nebraska, and Kentucky. The titleholder represents these 13 Midwestern States at IML and events all over the area. The Mr Midwest Leather title is a platform for doing good in the community.

Do you have what it takes to represent the community? Click here to go to the application page and sign up for the Mr Midwest Leather Contest. It's a great opportunity to meet people, make friends, grow as an individual and as a Leather Man, and give back to the Leather and LGBT community.

Every Mr Midwest goes to IML to compete for the title of International Mr Leather. The Producers of Mr Midwest Leather and their team will work with you from day 1 to prepare for IML and beyond. We will always be there for you. Since 2005, six Mr Midwests have made the Top 20, two have been selected 2nd Runner Up. Ultimately it doesn't matter where you place, though; it's only important that you do your best and come back with your head held high.
