Mister Leather Netherlands 2019 Contest

by our Editors in Events & Agenda , 12 oktober 2018

Dit artikel is ook in het Nederlands beschikbaar

This year, the twenty-fourth edition of Leather Pride Amsterdam will take place from October 25-28.

A full weekend with a variety of leather and fetish events, including a “Leather Dinner” organized by LFN, a “Leather Boat Tour” through the canals of Amsterdam organized by XXXLeather, and “Invasion” organized by Michael Roks and his team as the closing event, the leather/fetish party of the weekend of the Mr. Leather Netherlands 2019 Contest.

The election, which is supported by the entire leather community, including several public gay figures, gay bars and leather and fetish shops, will be organized by André Donker. Since 2016, Donker has acted as organizer of the national Mr. Leather Netherlands election.

However, he does not organize the election by himself. This year, Raymond Timmer and Christian Vincent have joined him. With this collaboration, as well as with the trusted collaboration of MSA, the election will have a different atmosphere - younger, more dynamic and more modern. In addition to the beautiful traditional leather man, they intend to welcome “newcomers” with their own vision on leather and fetish, thus bringing together the diversity of the scene, getting to know each other, creating a blast of a party.

On October 27, Mr. Leather Netherlands 2018 Evert Leersom will hand over his title to this year’s winner. As Mr. Leather Netherlands, Evert had the honor to represent the Dutch leather/fetish scene worldwide with pride and great success.

André is pleased that a man with Evert’s charisma has represented this title, a task that after the successful year of Raymond Timmer as the last Mr. Leather Amsterdam was not easy, but which he made his own. Early October, Evert will enter into the Mr. Leather Europe competition, and perhaps will even be handing over the title as Mr. Leather Europe 2018.

What André and his team search for in the new Mr. Leather Netherlands 2019 is a powerful personality, social and involved, a real leather/fetish man who knows what it’s all about in the scene, the players and the organisers, as well as its history. He has a clear vision about what he wants to achieve and has the resources and a full year to commit to this task and vision. The title Mister Leather Netherlands does not only mean being present at parties and great picture opportunities - it comes with a job, and the organizers expect him to make a success of it in his own unique way. He will not be doing this solo, as André and his team, as well as Evert, will stand by his side.

One of the things that the organization especially has in mind is cooperation, not only within the scene, but also beyond. Good examples of this are the Pride Walk, Pride at the Beach, parties such as Milkshake and Wasteland, and of course Crash on Beursplein last Gay Pride. This is as it should be, and certainly will be a great job for the new Mr. Leather Netherlands 2019.
