biopic

"Can you remember a time before Leather Titles? Remember the days of Drummer and Eagle and secret house parties? Y’all did have secret house parties, didn’t you? Raven was introduced to “the scene” back in the early ‘80’s, in Atlanta, through a series of super secret house parties. It was in the early days of creating “women’s space” in the guy’s gay leather scene. In this scene, one wouldn't dream of picking up a tool if they hadn't been mentored in it and it wasn't a "play" space, it was a disciplined, ritual space with clear rules and bounds. As one was mentored in, they became Family and Tribe. Raven’s introduction to the scene was a very different time and place than now and has informed their ideas ever since.

Most recently, Raven has served as an educator and presenter offering classes on razors and shaving, chivalry, blade bondage, predicament bondage, seduction, and creating sacred space. They’ve also served as co-producer and event wrangler of EQUUS International Pony Play Event and the North American Pony/Trainer Leather Title as well as being a lively and entertaining Master of Ceremonies at a number of events.

They love chivalry, are fascinated by the sensual, and enjoy an elegant esthetic. They’ve developed the practice of caring for and revitalizing vintage straight razors as tools for connecting with sacred space and spirit energy and are a leading expert on vintage straight razor history. Raven likes the tension of between and enjoys flirtation and negotiation as much as any physicality. They are chivalrous, romantic, sensual, strong and handsome butch top energy that responds to femme bottom energy but defines themselves as genderqueer.

Come see them compete May 4-6, 2017 tickets and informaiton available online at OlympusLeather.com.

Here is Sir Steel's Official Bio:

steelportrait

"Sir Steel has been active in the leather and kink lifestyle ever since he first moved out to Columbus in 1999, showing up at the local bars and private events. He had moved around several times in the Midwest, from Michigan to Indiana, and back to Columbus. During his years, he had the great honor of meeting with and learning from many different brothers and sisters in the leather community. He brought that knowledge back with him when he moved back to Columbus to stay and has been using it and building on it ever since. An active member of OLA, NLA-Columbus, Titans of the Midwest, Cap City Pups, and a co-founder of Ohio Pups and Handlers, he is glad to offer his skills, knowledge, and assistance back to the community. Working alongside his beloved partner and pup, Pup Kaine, he has helped to run various bar events, kink play panels, educational panels, and private play parties geared towards introducing those new to kink in a fun safe environment. He has volunteered, staffed, and judged at several local and regional events. Since being selected as Mr Midwest Olympus Leather 2017, he has strived to be a welcoming guide to those newcomers wanting to become involved in the community. He understands what it is like to be an outsider, to be different, to feel excluded or unwelcomed. Through his experiences, he has become a firm believer that the leather and greater kink family can only grow stronger and closer by being inclusive and welcoming to those from every walk of life. For we are all kindred in spirit."

Come see him compete May 4-6, 2017 tickets and informaiton available online at OlympusLeather.com.

Samsara is the sole competitor for the International Ms Olympus Leather title this year.  She lives in Texas and is sponsored by Great Plains Olympus Leather.

Here is Samsara's Official Bio:

samsarabiopic

"Samsara started in the leather community at the age of 19, identifying initially as a heterosexual slave-type who was maybe just curious about a little spanking. Fast forward a few classes and a great deal of encouragement from her mentor types and educators willing to share their knowledge, she now finds herself a leathergirl switch, exploring what it means to be queer both in a historical context and in the world today. It is an honor for her to be allowed to explore the role of Daddy, a pleasure to play as a pup, and sometimes thrilling and sometimes edgy when she allows herself to wander back into the wilds of bottoming – especially when it ends in toe-curling sex. Samsara has a deep passion for activism, and frequently finds herself engaging in discussions with those who have either in the past or current feel themselves as outcasts, and works to build a world and community in which these groups feel welcome to share their experiences and grow from their wealth of knowledge. During her title year, Samsara has spent a great deal of time both buried in books regarding our history and exploring the vast variances of leather experiences in heartfelt conversation. Through coming out (as a queer woman, as a leather person, and as someone with wide open polyamorous leanings), she has found that open and honest conversation combined with integrity lead to the best opportunities for growth. Samsara believes in continuous growth, and it is among her greatest honors to learn and represent as a leather person."

Come see her compete May 4-6, 2017 tickets and informaiton available online at OlympusLeather.com.

Bill Willis is one of three male competitors vying for for the International Mr Olympus Leather title this year.  He lives in San Diego, CA and is sponsored by West Coast Olympus Leather and Beat Your Drum Productions.

Here is Bill's Official Bio:

billbiopic

"My journey started as a young boy in the country. Many times I would sneak off with two clothes pins and see how long I could keep them attached to my nipples. Fast forward to 2001 when I arrived in Dallas Texas and went to my first leather bar. I couldn't believe how turned on I was. I tried to engage in a few conversations, but each time was shot down, or "looked through." I kept coming back and each time it was the same. Eventually, I was told that I didn't have "the leather look." I was informed that I did not have the right body for leather, that maybe I should try another bar... For several years, I continued to hear I did not fit the "Leather" image. For several years, I kept coming back.

Eventually I met a few people who helped me realize that Leather is not just an image. This group of people quickly became a family and a source of support. One person in particular helped me to finally understand that Leather is about what is in my heart, and what people witness through my actions. I have since been on a journey of acceptance and learning.

Moving to San Diego provided me with the opportunity to run for my first leather title, Mr. San Diego Eagle 2017. During my title year I worked hard to make sure everyone in the leather community felt welcomed and included. I focused on celebrating differences and working to bring people together to raise money for local charities. I also ran for and won the title of Mr. West Coast Olympus Leather 2017. As a Leather Titleholder, I strive to be a positive example of our Leather Community. I truly believe that our differences strengthen our unity."
