"Top 20 Jockstrap Competition" featurette
"The Leather Curtain": A short documentary

Go behind the scenes at the annual International Mr. Leather competition, where men from around the world gather to compete for the title of Mr. Leather. Once a small niche community that was dismissed by critics as a carnival of gay sexual fetishes, leather has gone mainstream, and Kink Crusaders proves why. As it delves into the lives and aspirations of its contestants with humor, tasteful eroticism and pathos, it reveals a group of men for whom spiritual connection, openness and understanding are the true definition of masculinity. This sexy, smart doc dares to ask - Is there a Kink Crusader in us all?

By Tim Brough VINE VOICE on April 8, 2012
Format: DVD
For those unfamiliar with International Mr. Leather, it as an annual event where literally thousands of Leatherfolk gather every May in Chicago. The centerpiece of the weekend is the International Mister Leather contest, in which men from around the world compete for the chance to promote the Leather Lifestyle (among other activities).

But it wasn't always like this. In a DVD that is destined to take a place next to the book "25 Years Of Champions," "Kink Crusaders" chronicles the humble beginnings of IML in 1979 (12 contestants from 6 states) to the extravagant pageant that it is today. In 2008, documentarian Mike Skiff travelled to Chicago for the chance to capture the 30th year of IML as it unfolded. So as you would expect, this is the kind of film that is laden with imagery of Homomasculinity at its hottest, with pictures, interviews and event clips documenting every year of International Mr. Leather. (Including a brief but explanatory clip as a postlude from IML 2010.)

But once again, I have to repeat. "Kink Crusaders" is much more than a tableaux of hot men in leather. Perspective comes from a rare "Mr Gold Coast Leather" film clip to ongoing interviews with contestants and commentary from Guy Baldwin, founder Chuck Renslow and others (including the odd interlopers who found themselves inside the hotel as the contest was occurring). Mike Skiff and a host of contributors have created a grand history of this culture of leather in this magnificent 90 minute documentary. But if the thought of all those concepts and heavy thinking intimidates you, fear not. There are contest videos, and did I fail to mention that the pictures are hot? If you missed that earlier on, forgive me. I reiterate; the men are HOT. Get "Kink Crusaders" now. It's going to look great on your widescreen.

An excellent behind the scenes look at International Mr. Leather XXX, complete with the history, future, and controversies the Leather community faces. As someone who has worked behind the scenes, I can vouch for the authenticity of Skiff's work. It rings true to my experience, and it captures the family reunion I have come to love.

I really appreciated hearing the history of the International Man of Leather competition. The title is quite sensational for the actual content, although there are some very 'candid and straightforward' moments. An excellent documentary that put heart and soul into what at one time frightened me, even as a gay man. This documentary took away that fear. These are some good-hearted guys.

Thanks for the memories!

One interview after another of leather types. Three gay men watched about 20-30 minutes m, then turned it off. Really boring!
