Mr. Wisconsin Leather 2014

Saturday, August 23, 2014

Produced by Mr. Wisconsin Leather

Tickets $65 onsite with cash, check, or credit.

The Mr. Wisconsin Leather Event Weekend is the largest leather and fetish event in Wisconsin, and the premier leather contest event for Badger State Leathermen, those curious about the Leather Community, and their supporters. Although only begun in 2013, Mr. Wisconsin Leather is fast becoming well-known not only throughout the Midwest and beyond for its combination of events and parties, fetish learning seminars, and the opportunity for the Leather Community to grow and build the bonds of brotherhood that are critical for a proud and vibrant community.

This year brings exciting new changes to the Mr. Wisconsin Leather Event Weekend.....a new host city, new venues, and new partnerships....all to bring some of the best that the larger Leather Community has here to Wisconsin. MWL is excited that our state capitol, Madison, is our new home! By securing a three-year contract with both the Bartell Theater as our contest venue, and the Sheraton Hotel as our host hotel, MWL hopes to welcome leathermen from around Wisconsin, the Midwest, the United States, and yes, even internationally, to share in our celebration of Brotherhood! MWL is also excited to have partnered with the Titans of the Midwest, to bring their Kink U. program for fetish learning and exploring to Wisconsin for the first time starting this year. Last year's fetish workshops were a tremendous hit, and we are excited to continue to bring knowledgeable and experienced presenters from all various forms of the fetish community with Kink U. at MWL!

Of course, the Mr. Wisconsin Leather Event Weekend wouldn't be complete without the Mr. Wisconsin Leather contest itself, and the Badger Leather Ball that immediately follows the contest on Saturday evening. Wisconsin Leathermen from all across the state will once again compete for the title of Mr. Wisconsin Leather 2015, and the opportunity to carry that title on to the International Mr. Leather competition next May 2015 in Chicago.

To say that the 2015 Mr. Wisconsin Leather Event Weekend will be filled with many fun, informative and exciting events is hopefully an understatement. Please check out the 'Schedule of Events' page on the website here and explore the entire site to learn all about this year's event. However, no event is successful without YOU! We invite you and your friends to come to Madison, August 22-24, 2014, to share in this unique event for the Wisconsin Leather Community. No matter if you have been in the Leather Community for many years, just starting on your journey, or simple just curious, we hope you will find that the word 'brotherhood' is not something written on a page, but is alive in the spirit and people of Mr. Wisconsin Leather!

On Golden Pond focuses on aging couple Ethel and Norman Thayer, who spend each summer at their home on a lake called Golden Pond. During the year the story takes place, they are visited by daughter Chelsea with her fiancé and his son in law. The play explores the often turbulent relationship the young woman shared with her father growing up, and the difficulties faced by a couple in the twilight years of a long marriage.

Nancy is a therapist who specializes in transgender clients. David is a transgender man who needs a letter from a therapist in order to pursue genital surgery. Both of them are taken by surprise when their relationship threatens to expand beyond the boundaries of what is appropriate for a therapist and her client. Meanwhile, Nancy‘s 16 year old “daughter”, Jessica, is beginning to discover his own transgender identity: Jason. When Nancy refuses to accept that her own rhinestone-loving child could be trans, Jason looks for support at the local LGBT youth center and finds a supportive mentor in David. What will happen when Nancy‘s two worlds collide? Standards of Care is a harsh, humorous, and honest exploration of some of the realities that face the trans community.
