Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear from Guy Baldwin in Chicago! His forty-five years of experience and service in the world of leathersex, M/s and SM have made Guy Baldwin a very honored leatherman. In 1989, separate judging panels selected him first as Mr. National Leather Association and then as the 11th International Mr. Leather. He is still the only man ever to have held the titles concurrently, and takes pride in his long relationship both with IML, the event, and with its producer, Chuck Renslow. In 2000 the Leather Archives & Museum gave Guy the accolade “Centurion,” naming him one of the twenty most important contributors to leather/BDSM in the 20th Century.
