IML 2014 Contestants At Mid Atlantic Leather By Dave RhodesKrongaard had a lot more to share with the approximately 100 Leatherfolk in the room, mostly titleholders who would be competing for IML 2014 and many who vied for the title in recent years, and IML founder Chuck Renslow with his partner, Juan 21 of the contestants for International Mr. Leather 2014 were on hand and 20 appear in the group photo of contestants as one had to leave before the shot was taken.

International Mr. Leather 2015 will be back at the Congress Hotel, scene of IML in the early 1990s. The announcement was cheered by most, but not by all as many liked the high end hotels that followed such as the Palmer House Hilton and Hyatt Regency. Many could remember the "good old days" in the Congress Hotel's huge ornate lobby with all of the unabashed debauchery taking place therein.

Jon Krongaard is now the Executive Coordinator of IML who is the Chief Financial Officer. Bill Stadt, past IML Coordinator, has returned and will oversee the day-to-day operations. These are full-time positions. International Mr. Leather has evolved with the times.

International Mr. Leather 2014, IML's 36th Annual Reunion, will be held Friday, May 23 through Monday, May 26, 2014 (Memorial Day Weekend) in Chicago, IL. The Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile, 540 North Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL will be the host hotel for IML 2014.
