IML IMBB 2021 cancelled

The Renslow Charitable Foundation, owners and producers of the International Mr. Leather and International Mr. Bootblack contest, announced on June 9, that both contests were cancelled and the the contest will be held during Memorial Day weekend in 2022.

The press release stated, "....We clearly understand that things are beginning to return to some new sense of normal. However, as we look to this November as well as May 2022, we must also consider many factors in making event decisions....That said, we have decided to cancel (IML and IMBB) 2021 events....The specific key factors behind this decision include a shortened weekend program and a space-compressed vendor market with reduced hours, the financial impact to our guests in possibly attending two IML weekends six months apart, the shorter title year for the winners who have waited patiently for their moment to compete and a necessary consideration for any potential reinstatement of large gathering restrictions."

What was to-be-determined was the winners of the contests.
