GLLA announces Randal Kinnear, Woody Woodruff as 2016 Emcees

INDIANAPOLIS — The Great Lakes Leather Alliance (GLLA) announces that the GLLA 2016 contest Emcees will be Randal Kinnear and Woody Woodruff.


Randal Kinnear

International Leather Sir 2006 Randal Kinnear brought many laughs to GLLA last year as a contest co-Emcee, and GLLA is thrilled he will return to the stage this year. He is a fundraiser, activist, entertainer, auctioneer, producer, mentor, teacher, and Bootblack.  Among Randal’s many accomplishments, he is the former owner and president of ILSb-ICBB, first runner up at International Drummer 2000, the 2003 Pantheon Leather Man of the Year, the 2005 Flesh and Fantasy Man of the Year, and the 2009 Pantheon South Central Regional Award winner.  Currently, Randal resides in Dallas, Texas.


Woody Woodruff

International Mr. Leather 2012 Woody Woodruff is an activist, performer, vocalist, and educator who enjoys discussing and presenting on polyamory, “unconventional family,” standing up to bullying, and shattering the stigma associated with HIV and PReP.  In all his activities, Woody’s main focus is to encourage people to find their own passion or, “sound,” as he calls it…and then to do something about it. Woody is co-founder of the Band of Brothers chapters in Michigan and Chicago, a member of Titans of the Midwest, and he is “Mama’s Singin’ LilCub.” Currently, Woody resides in Chicago, Illinois.

The GLLA 2016 contest nights occur during GLLA 2016 Weekend on Friday, October 14th and Saturday, October 15th.
