For some, leather is an aesthetic choice. For others, it is a sexy way of life. Regardless of where you fall on that spectrum, this three-day celebration should be entertaining. The stakes are high, as dudes will be competing for the title of Mr. Twin Cities Leather 2017. The winner will be selected by a panel of leathermen champions both past and present, with a prize package of over $5,500. Everyone is invited to compete, but if you’d rather watch, there will be plenty of opportunities to play voyeur each night as well. Other festival activities include talks and workshops from Kink U, special performances, brunch, and a victory party on Saturday night. The whole thing concludes on Sunday night with buck-naked men at the Saloon’s weekly shower contest (leather is not recommended for those who enter the shower cage).
