Master Bernie - Salt Lake City

Master Bernie began his journey into kink when he read a Drummer magazine in 1981. He liked what he saw and purchased a leather jacket and motorcycle boots the next day. My Leather journey began with that first step. I stepped into the old Sun Tavern and began convincing other likeminded men to start on me as a bottom.

He has been a member of Utah Powerplay, Utah Power Exchange (UPEX) and The Path. He taught classes to each of these organizations starting in 1995.

He is a cadet from the first Journeyman III (Three) Academy in Salt Lake City, Utah. His journey carried him to Chicago, Illinois, where he became an associate member of the Chicago Hellfire Club, a gay male sex club. His kinky mission is to flog and single tail as many willing volunteers that will step up to the plate.

I like electro stimulation, needles, paddling, whipping (flogging; light to heavy), interrogating, boys on dildos and fuck machines, metal bondage and restraint, collaring boys for use and abuse(temp or permanent), humiliation (when the boy's mind is strong), Tandem topping, whenever possible, mummification and single tails (light to bloody raw).

Huck Barry Hound - Salt Lake City

Huck Barry Hound found the leather community a mere year and some change ago. Enthusiastically, Huck jumped fist first into just about any kink he could get his hand into. Anywhere from puppy play to cigars and blood, you’ll find Huck’s trail of J-Lube. However, as far and wide as Huck’s interests reach; leather is always a fetish that follows him. There is no scene that could not be made hotter without someone in full hide. Huck is the 2017 Puppy for the Rocky Mountain Puppy & Trainer Contest and will compete in the 2018 International Puppy & Trainer Contest. Huck is a graduate of Leftenant Fox’s Begleithund Class, and currently serves on the Board of Directors for Rocky Mountain Pet Alliance. With a history of activism in his vanilla life, Huck aims to continue to work for sex positivity and inclusion. 

Levi "Otter" - Denver

Levi "Otter" hails from Denver where he proudly represents his state as Mr Leather Colorado 2011. His adventure into the leather and kink community started as a young boy when he was given his first pair of boots and taught how to care for leather gear. That experience taught him not only invaluable skills as a bootblack but also the importance of education passed down to the next generation. While teaching at events he is regularly accompanied by his pups Sprocket, Tai, and most recent addition Huck. Their poly family affectionately named Otter Nonsense has made it a mission of theirs to be a loud voice for diversity, and the safety that comes from not just education but the celebration of all people and critters as equals in beauty and voice.

Charles writes a monthly column for Q-Salt Lake called QUEER SHIFT, and appears on X96’s Radio From Hell twice monthly, as his alter-ego Sister Dottie S. Dixon. Charles was one of the original members of The Wasatch Leathermen’s Association, and is currently a solid and strong supporter of Blackboots and other organizations that are vastly improving Utah with sex positive programs. Mr. Frost has lived his whole life in Utah and has witnessed tremendous change in the entire LGBTQ Community, but is especially proud of the leather community—and how it pushes back on all the embedded Utah cultural norms of fear, shame, guilt, judgement and ignorance. He is honored to be a judge for this 2018 Leather Pride.
