2018 GPOL Judge: Master Gator

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

GREAT PLAINS OLYMPUS LEATHER CONTEST

master gatorMaster Gator named one of 5 judges for the 2018 Great Plains Olympus Leather Regional Olympus Leather Contest.  The Contest will be held in Dallas, Texas June 8 & 9, 2018 at the Dallas Eagle.

The story of Master Gator started a long time ago in a state far away… being raised between a military father and an “equality for all” mother, his understanding of free chose and the need for rules of a society modeled how he saw the world. When it came to adult orientated material, he found that the once with dominate / submissive flavor to them were the once that he found touched him the deepest.

As he grew into adulthood he looked for those partners who would fit with his desires. During this time it was looked down on very harshly to be seen as wanting to dominate another human, but the heart wants what the heart wants. He was not alone; there were others who shared his desires. They did not always work out, but with each new partner they both learned and grew. Then, in September of 1999 his future wife drug him (kicking and screaming) to an NLA meeting. There he found whole groups of people who shared some of his interested and many more interests he had never thought of. There he found the support, guidance, & examples, he was looking for to understand and accept who he is.

During Gators time in the leather community he has been honored with his leather Master’s cover, presented by several of the covered Masters of the Dallas area in November 2010 for his steadfast support of the leather and kinky communities.

Master Gator has reached that part in his life and his growths, where he can give back to the community that has done so much for him.

#IOL2018 Contestant: Ms Samsara

April 5, 2018

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Competetitors for the 23rd Annual International Olympus Leather Contest have submitted their applications and are preparing to to compete in San Diego during Olympus Leather Weekend at the Events new venue the Crowne Plaza Mission Valley.

Samsara is the sole competitor for the International Ms Olympus Leather title this year.  She lives in Texas and is sponsored by Great Plains Olympus Leather.

Here is Samsara's Official Bio:

samsarabiopic

"Samsara started in the leather community at the age of 19, identifying initially as a heterosexual slave-type who was maybe just curious about a little spanking. Fast forward a few classes and a great deal of encouragement from her mentor types and educators willing to share their knowledge, she now finds herself a leathergirl switch, exploring what it means to be queer both in a historical context and in the world today. It is an honor for her to be allowed to explore the role of Daddy, a pleasure to play as a pup, and sometimes thrilling and sometimes edgy when she allows herself to wander back into the wilds of bottoming – especially when it ends in toe-curling sex. Samsara has a deep passion for activism, and frequently finds herself engaging in discussions with those who have either in the past or current feel themselves as outcasts, and works to build a world and community in which these groups feel welcome to share their experiences and grow from their wealth of knowledge. During her title year, Samsara has spent a great deal of time both buried in books regarding our history and exploring the vast variances of leather experiences in heartfelt conversation. Through coming out (as a queer woman, as a leather person, and as someone with wide open polyamorous leanings), she has found that open and honest conversation combined with integrity lead to the best opportunities for growth. Samsara believes in continuous growth, and it is among her greatest honors to learn and represent as a leather person."

Come see her compete May 4-6, 2017 tickets and informaiton available online at OlympusLeather.com.

#IOL2018 Contestant: Mx Raven Darknights

April 5, 2018

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Competetitors for the 23rd Annual International Olympus Leather Contest have submitted their applications and are preparing to to compete in San Diego during Olympus Leather Weekend at the Events new venue the Crowne Plaza Mission Valley.

Raven Darknights is the sole competitor for the International Mx Olympus Leather title this year.  They live in Tucscon, AZ and are a self sponsored independant contestant.

Here is Raven's Official Bio:

biopic

"Can you remember a time before Leather Titles? Remember the days of Drummer and Eagle and secret house parties? Y’all did have secret house parties, didn’t you? Raven was introduced to “the scene” back in the early ‘80’s, in Atlanta, through a series of super secret house parties. It was in the early days of creating “women’s space” in the guy’s gay leather scene. In this scene, one wouldn't dream of picking up a tool if they hadn't been mentored in it and it wasn't a "play" space, it was a disciplined, ritual space with clear rules and bounds. As one was mentored in, they became Family and Tribe. Raven’s introduction to the scene was a very different time and place than now and has informed their ideas ever since.

Most recently, Raven has served as an educator and presenter offering classes on razors and shaving, chivalry, blade bondage, predicament bondage, seduction, and creating sacred space. They’ve also served as co-producer and event wrangler of EQUUS International Pony Play Event and the North American Pony/Trainer Leather Title as well as being a lively and entertaining Master of Ceremonies at a number of events.

They love chivalry, are fascinated by the sensual, and enjoy an elegant esthetic. They’ve developed the practice of caring for and revitalizing vintage straight razors as tools for connecting with sacred space and spirit energy and are a leading expert on vintage straight razor history. Raven likes the tension of between and enjoys flirtation and negotiation as much as any physicality. They are chivalrous, romantic, sensual, strong and handsome butch top energy that responds to femme bottom energy but defines themselves as genderqueer.

Come see them compete May 4-6, 2017 tickets and informaiton available online at OlympusLeather.com.

Here is Sir Steel's Official Bio:

steelportrait

"Sir Steel has been active in the leather and kink lifestyle ever since he first moved out to Columbus in 1999, showing up at the local bars and private events. He had moved around several times in the Midwest, from Michigan to Indiana, and back to Columbus. During his years, he had the great honor of meeting with and learning from many different brothers and sisters in the leather community. He brought that knowledge back with him when he moved back to Columbus to stay and has been using it and building on it ever since. An active member of OLA, NLA-Columbus, Titans of the Midwest, Cap City Pups, and a co-founder of Ohio Pups and Handlers, he is glad to offer his skills, knowledge, and assistance back to the community. Working alongside his beloved partner and pup, Pup Kaine, he has helped to run various bar events, kink play panels, educational panels, and private play parties geared towards introducing those new to kink in a fun safe environment. He has volunteered, staffed, and judged at several local and regional events. Since being selected as Mr Midwest Olympus Leather 2017, he has strived to be a welcoming guide to those newcomers wanting to become involved in the community. He understands what it is like to be an outsider, to be different, to feel excluded or unwelcomed. Through his experiences, he has become a firm believer that the leather and greater kink family can only grow stronger and closer by being inclusive and welcoming to those from every walk of life. For we are all kindred in spirit."
