Leather Archives & Museum to hold virtual jockstrap auction this weekend

Since the International Mr. Leather (IML) competition in Chicago has been cancelled this year, The Leather Archives and Museum — of which IML is a major source of funding —  is in need of financial support. What better way to raise some money for LA&M than to have a virtual jockstrap auction via Facebook Live?!

On Saturday, June 6, 2020, many generous folks in the Leather community are preparing to bare their buns, as people from all over the world and from all walks of life come together virtually to raise some dough. The event was organized by Chicago Bootblack Boi Debney, and the Bear community’s own Mr. World Bear 2020, Marcel Van Doorn, and World Cub 2020, Christopher Gonzalez, will be among the many titleholders auctioning off their jockstraps. 

The event is inclusive, and all are welcome to join. For more details, check out the Facebook event page
