International Mr. Leather™ and
International Mr. Bootblack welcome you to IML 2023.

We are preparing for our Sapphire Anniversary of International Mr. Leather™ and International Mr. Bootblack contests for 2023. The host hotel is once again at Chicago’s historic Congress Hotel and Convention Center and our contests are returning to the Auditorium Theatre.

Contests have already begun to happen across the country choosing new title holders to fill our stage. We look forward to introducing you to the Class of 23 in its entirety at the beginning of May. Our volunteers are always very eager to sign up for their shifts, we appreciate them giving their time to our organization, those shifts should become available in mid-February. You can still find information regarding volunteering under the visitors guide.

Currently all ticket sales and hotel reservations are open and ONLY available via this website. Please, do not contact the hotel directly, this will result in misinformation that the hotel is already sold out. We look forward to seeing you and enjoying this milestone year with all of the members of our tribe.
