Leather in the Desert kicked off with a Boots and Burgers event at Apollo's lounge on Thursday, where local bootblacks were on hand to get attendee's gear ready for the weekend. Greet the Meat and the annual Kink Auction were Friday's main attraction. Hosted by the Anvil bar, Ruin Awaits got the highest bid of the evening when she offered up a hot bondage lap dance.

On Saturday, a formal Leather dinner at Apollo's was attended by 44 Leatherfolk followed by the contests which took place on the packed patio of the Bunkhouse Saloon.

Emcees Southwest Leatherboy 2008 Stephen Palaschak and Emperor VII of the Imperial Court of Arizona Kenneth Anthony got the evening started by introducing the Albuquerque, Denver and Phoenix boys of Leather Color Guard for the national anthem - beautifully performed by slave Eagle.
