This shirt was given to me as a gift by a vendor at MIR 6 years ago. They strategically left it on a rack in their booth for me to find it. When I did, they pounced me from behind.

“Happy Birthday, Ruffy!”

My body has changed quite a bit since 2010 (thanks crossfit). I am so happy it still fits and that I got to show them it this weekend at #MIR20.

Electro Demo at IML


Jarrod Locke is a shy jock who volunteered to get tied up at IML this year for a demo. Coach Dirk Caber has him strung up in no time with his mouth tied to the Tetruss rig via a makeshift pole-gag. Once Jarrod is helplessly restrained, Dirk brings out the violet wand and slowly glances it across the muscled boy’s smooth body. Jarrod groans and moans as the crowd watches the boy suffer under the violet wand.


CHICAGO: Leatherman Psychology: Conceptualizing Identity and Mental Health

Leather Archives & Museum


at 3:00pm – 5:00pm

FREE. Open to the public 18+

Much psychological research has examined identity and mental health factors of sexual minority men from a minority stress perspective. However, little to no research has focused on what makes leathermen a unique population in regard to these constructs. Alex Tatum is a doctoral student pursuing a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology at Loyola University Chicago, and he has devoted his time as a researcher to studying numerous sociodemographics, identity dimensions, and mental health traits that define this tightly-knit community. We invite you to join Alex as he discusses similarities and differences between leathermen and mainstream sexual minority men from a psychological perspective. Q&A will follow, during which attendees are invited to critically analyze presented data to generate possible directions for future inquiry.
