Pantheon of Leather 2018

By September 06, 2018




Pantheon of Leather XXVIII saw a crowd of about 150 Leatherfolk attend the awards show emceed by Christopher Edwards on Thursday night, August 30 at the Double Tree By Hilton Dallas Market Square.



The show zipped at a fast pace. Award recipients had the opportunity to give a short Thank You speech as they appeared on stage to receive their honors. Not having a variety of people stumble through names helped speed things up - and Edwards seemed to pronounce all of the names clearly correctly. As the show went on, many arrived at the hotel after hurrying in from DFW or Love Field. Perhaps the two most touching acceptance speeches were by Lifetime Achievement Award (Man) Jack Pearce from Toronto, Canada and Werner Hal of Munich, Germany while receiving the International Award.

International Leather Sir, Leatherboy and Community Bootblack hosted the Pantheon of Leather Awards.

Before the show, there was a bountiful buffet of beef steak and salmon, mashed potatoes, green beans, salad and cheesecake - and it would not be Southern without iced tea, so there was.

Most of the crowd arrived on Friday and they missed out on Thursday's crowded schedule which included the buffet and Pantheon of Leather Awards, contestant fantasies and a titleholder roast led by contest emcee Thib Guicherd-Callin.
