MILWAUKEE – TC was named as the first ever Mr. Wisconsin Leather at Boom and The Room in Milwaukee over the weekend.
TC was one of five contestants from the state running for the inaugural title. TC will be going on to represent the state at International Mr. Leather in Chicago on Memorial Day weekend in 2014.
The contest itself was part of a weekend of events including brunches, auctions and presentations at different locations through out Wisconsin’s largest city. Boom hosted the vendor market while the contest was at the attached bar next door, The Room. Classes taught by Sir Papa Bear, Pup Itus, Buster Balloonguy and Tyger Yoshi were held at the Milwaukee LGBT Center in downtown. The after party was at Midtown Spa with Hamburger Mary’s Milwaukee hosting the victory brunch and the wind-down party at Kruz. The welcome party at Boom and The Room also featured a used jock strap auction held by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence with more than $500 raised for CLAW Nation.
Despite sharing a weekend with American Brotherhood Weekend a two-hour drive away in Chicago, the event brought in a capacity crowd to The Room with people coming from across Wisconsin and neighboring states.
