End of the Olympus Leather Contest?

From the desk of Vonn Tramel, Owner Olympus Leather

In May of 2019 Olympus Leather Hosted some fantastic folks in Chicago for Olympus Leather Weekend 2019.  Among them was Laura Antoniou who was kind enough to take my money and give a keynote address of her choosing "whether I liked what she had to say or not".  Little did she know, that I had been pondering some of the things she had to say. 

Why weren't events focusing on artists and authors?  Why were events SOOOOO focused on "just contests"? After all, titleholders "should" be doing SOMETHING...What were they actually doing?  I'd been having trouble answering that very question for the 6 years I'd been involved with Olympus Leather beyond traveling, teaching (teaching what?), and raising money (for what and did I KNOW the charities were getting their money? and that raised more questions than I had time to ponder).

WELP....2020 gave me A LOT of time to think about whether or not a pageant was the way to continue.  December 31, 2020, I made the decision and put out the word to Regional and Local Olympus Leather Producers that we were killing the pageant system as we knew it.  I have ideas.  Ideas for the way we pick future titleholders, the way we present our events, the way we utilize this family to promote our chosen charities, and the way we choose our charities.  The whole thing needed a good scrub and re-work.

In February 2021 a group of individuals comprised of Olympus Leather Former Titleholders, close family members, and Producers sat in on the first committee meeting to hear what I had to say.  Some liked it, some are still (as of May) not certain about the changes...I am CERTAIN that we'll come out the other side of this thing better for it.

I'm not ready to spill all the beans just yet, but we have chosen the date for the next event and I hope you'll join us for OLW 2021 Online.  This won't be just another Zoom Conference.  We'll have curated virtual museum displays and vendors marts where you can autonomously stroll through at your leisure, the Leather Quilt will be on virtual display as well.  Performances on the main stage by our community for our community, a special table reading of Laura Antoniou's Killer short "A SPICE Oddity".  NO Contest (this year) NO Classes, NO Auction. Chat roulette...and so much more is being planned!  And it's all FREE.  Registration will be opening soon.

Feels: Like a bride, cant sleep, so excited, dont want the weekend to end! I always feel so far away when I read FB and my friends are going to awesome things like events, parties and title contests and stuff. It was so cool to be there too!!!

It was so WONDERFUL to feel the love from SDGOL and Anna-Muffin Ab and Jae Marie wearing Butch bait tanks and kilts in sister love!!!

It was yummy to finally be able to hug and love up Tina Maravilla and Cobi Maravilla it seems weird not staying with them! #contestintegrity

It was awesome watching Vonn Tramel grill the judges Sarha Shaubach, Dominic Chevalier, Christine Cummings, Tina Maravilla, Dino Garcia, Dave Faunce, Gary Allen!!! Every one rocked!!

Oh and as if this cant get better my whole class of Mr WCOL are all puppies....soooo cute!!!! They all were on stage pupping out....

Shae Flanigan and Wish Linda Fisher almost made me cry with how much they were there for me, Russ Mortenson Boyd, Dave Rhodes and the contest....

It was awesome to start conversations and get donations for Reclaiming our Leather History project, with Gary Allen if you dont know about we have a FB page, it is a great org!!!

It was just as awesome as a leather girl could ever dream, I was appointed my WCOL title last year, and it was an honor to be chosen from other applicants but secretly I missed the fun of a contest; ie: the outfit picking, coaching, the interview questions, the backstage jitters, the fantasy, and the speech...

But this year I started with great coaches: Tae Cuore and Angel Marie and Pup La M. Mie and Vonn Tramel were wonderful help with all the support and love picking out outfits....And thank you to Timothy Perkins for doing girl things with me, like makeup and hair because I kinda suck at being a girl.

We have a sexy fantasy planned with Anna-Muffin Ab Tiara Gollaherr Cobi Maravilla and honestly maybe more.....lol...its kind of...well, lets just say it is not set in stone yet....

I am just having fun!! its seriously fun to be in SD with the people I love most in the world, and more coming tonight, and meeting such lovely and sexy spirits on my leather walk!!!

2014 West Coast Mr. Olympus Leather - Dave Faunce

Mr. West Coast Olympus Leather 2014 Dave Faunce was born in Los Angeles, this created a kindred spirit and unique connection to the City of Angeles.

His first leather experience happened in 1990 at the Gauntlet Bar in LA where he was exposed to the hardcore "Old Guard" leather traditions and values. That experience was the beginning of his raunchy Leatherman journey towards becoming a kinky Angelino himself. Dave states, “This city has a strong and vibrant leather community with so much history, and I’m proud to be part of it.”

Dave was Mr. Bullet Leather 2012 and utilized his title for fundraising and charity work for his fellow brothers and community as well as just to party and have fun. Dave brought and continues to bring the raw and nasty elements back into the LA scene and events.
 He was inducted into the LABB in 2012 and stated, “I am one lucky man to be assimilated into a brotherhood of great men.“

Dave is also a member and vice president of the oldest and longest running gay organization in the world, The Satyrs Motorcycle Club. “Riding a Harley Davidson and being a gay biker in California is a dream come true. Being in the Satyrs M/C is like having the family you always dreamed of.“

Dave is a rocker with sophistication and class. Beverly Hills is where Dave has been a stylist since 2004 creating styles from the classic look to the avant-guard. “This city has been good to me, I found love, family, career and community. I feel my journey has just begun.“

Since I love being a tease on the dance floor and stage back home in L.A. I want to bring the 2 most sexiest things that are within myself .. Burlesque and Rubber … I want to show that one can dance , tease , and taunt with out having to peel her skin to show the inner her !.

2008 West Coast Olympus Leather Winners - Mina Fatales & Andrew Love


The First West Coast Olympus Leather Title holders were named at the 2008 DomCon LA Event on Saturday evening after a fun filled competition filled with fantasy's from each of the contestants that spand an emotional gamit. Three contestants made us laugh, shocked us with hate and anger then quickly saved us with an embrace and just made us hot and bothered! IMHO. :)

west coast olympus 2008 winners

Andrew this years Mr. Title Winner performed a “coming of age” enactment that embraced acceptance, growth and education. Andrew is from Salt Lake City, Utah and was supported by a sizeable contingent from the region that made this girl smile to see the support of a brother from such a small leather community.

Mina Fatale our Ms. Title winner, the only female entrant this year, performed a rubber clad fetish fantasy filled with military precision and bdsm goodness, with her girl hypatia that left our MC's speachless but for the "I don't even like girls, but that was hot". Mina is from the Echo Park area of Los Angeles and is quite involved in the education of her community on topics such as Safe Scening, Medical Play, Mummification and puppy play. She is a devout Leather Daddi with a small growing poly family in Southern California.

IMHO these two will take the Olympus Leather message back to their communities and do their best to spread the word of acceptance, love and education. Congratulations Mina and Andrew!
