The world's hottest leathermen will come together to compete for the title of International Mr. Leather 2013, as IML celebrates its 35rd Anniversary, Friday, May 24 through Monday, May 27, 2013 (Memorial Day Weekend) in Chicago.

About 400 gay leathermen gathered in Chicago in 1979 for the first International Mr. Leather contest. Today, the event has grown to be an annual tradition for thousands in the leather community - drawing contestants and attendees from around the globe. Once an event for "hardcore" leathermen, IML has expanded in recent years to include a more diverse crowd - from the experienced to the curious.
Join the ICIRR community to celebrate the service and advocacy accomplishments of the past year, and the vision for our continued progress.

The evening’s program will feature:
  • Testimony from prominent Illinois and national leaders in immigrant and refugee rights
  • An awards program honoring trailblazers in the immigrant rights movement
  • A culinary experience with 20 of Chicago's premier restaurants and chefs
  • A live performance by The Occidental Brothers Dance Band.
