TORONTO – The Eastern Canada LeatherSIR/Leatherboy contest weekend will take place in March in Toronto on the Easter long weekend. With Good Friday a holiday, ECLSb weekend will start the evening of Thursday, March 28, and conclude on Sunday, March 31. Since ECLSb are sexual titles, the contest weekend will start and end with hot leather sex parties!
ECLSb 2013 weekend will kick-off on Thursday, March 28 with “Squeal: Lights Out Leather Party,” a special edition of our annual contest weekend men’s play party at Steamworks. “Squeal: Lights Out Leather Party” will coincide with the club’s weekly Lights Out event. Arrive early; rooms sell out quickly. Regular club rules and admission rates apply; check www.SteamworksOnline.com for more info.
A new event will be held the afternoon of the Friday holiday, March 29. The “Changing Of The Guard” reception is a new format for the traditional contest weekend “Meet and Greet.” In addition to meeting and mingling with contestants, judges, out of town guests and local leather folk, a highlight of Changing Of The Guard will be a keynote speech by Sir Marc Paquet-Decker, of Toronto. Sir Marc is head of a leather family, starting with his two collared boys, connor and farrell. He is also founder and head of “The Leather Vajra Family,” his much larger leather family, which is presently comprised of more than 100 members, found coast-to-coast across North America. Sir Marc has judged leather competitions in Ontario, been a featured presenter at Kink Kamp in Alberta, and, since 2009, has served as a member of the “So You Want to Be Kinky???” education group. Changing Of The Guard will take place from 1pm-5pm, at Club 120 (formerly Goodhandy’s, 120 Church Street at Richmond). Light refreshments will be served, with a cash bar. Admission is $5, with net proceeds to ECLSb 2013 travel fund.
On Friday night (Mar 29), the ECLSb crowd heads to a “Black Eagle Bar Night” where the focus will purely be on cruising and socializing at our local leather bar, Black Eagle Toronto. The ECLSb contestants and crew will be hanging out at “the dirty bird” from about 10pm until late. If weather cooperates maybe we’ll have an early spring and cigars on the patio! If not, we can console ourselves in their infamous back room!
The weekend’s main event will be the Eastern Canada LeatherSIR/Leatherboy 2013 Contests, which will take place Saturday, March 30 at Club 120. Doors open at 12:30pm; the contest will start at 1:30pm sharp! Admission will be $10, with net proceeds to ECLSb 2013 travel fund.
