Leather Archives is open

After three months, the LA&M has re-opened to visitors. "We anticipate welcoming you back on July 1. However, please check with us as these things change daily. We've made good use of this time. Keeping our history dry is important, and the building now has a brand new roof. We have also made some interior repairs to get the building into better condition." said Gary Wasdin. The Leather Archives has several new exhibits in the galleries that will make their debut when we open again, including: a new run and club pin display in the Uniforms' Room, a pony play exhibit in the main gallery, a Tom of Finland 100th Birthday exhibit in the Teri Rose Library Lens, an exhibit of Leather and kink photography featuring the work of Jim Wigler along with contemporary photographers reflecting the broad diversity of Leather, plus new pieces form the collections, many never seen before.

It is no secret that there were 71 International Mr. Leather 2018 or IML 40 contestants - your preference - 19 of them came from outside the United States, it is known that significant changes were being made in the International Mr. Bootblack contest and that IML founder Chuck Renslow would be remembered with class. What was to-be-determined was the winners of the contests.
