The 2012 International Mr. Leather hits Chicago this Memorial Day weekend. For those not knowledgeable about the 33-year-old event, IML is a sprawling conference that includes kink-minded parties, panels, demonstrations and retailers, and, of course, the infamous International Mister Leather competition.
But you really need to see IML to understand it. So we’ve gathered some of our favorite images from last year’s event to tell the real story. If they whet your appetite, it’s not too late to book passage to Chicago: Single tickets are still available!
