Judge Sammy



Sammy is a 27 year old bootblack from Portland Oregon. His roots are as a shoeshiner. After shining shoes for a while, he realized he had a leather fetish. One of his friends told him about the leather community and bootblacking, and introduced him to his current mentor. In 2012 he competed and earned the title of Oregon State bootblack. Where he spent a year serving his community. And in 2013 he competed and won the title of International Mr. bootblack.

Sammy is into bootplay, CBT, Canoodling, and a wide spectrum of play. What really gets Sammy off is service and helping the community.













Danny is a 32 year old full-time student, big brother and new leather man.  He is a Portland native and idealist who enjoys advocacy. My shtick with leather up until recently had been mostly about fashion, getting to know this community however has opened my eyes to a whole other world of sensations and thought processes. When my predecessor Tarsus, Mr. Oregon State Leather 2011 piqued  my interest in the competition I had no idea how my world would change. My leather is as much a part of my personality as my piercings and tattoos.

my involvement in the leather community started in In 1997, when i attended the first Oregon State Leather Contest. When Thom Butts and Lynne Pierce were sashed i felt that i had finally found my home in their acceptance of my kink and an amazing sense of "family". During this time, i also was active in the GLBTQ community through the Imperial Sovereign Rose Court, holding several titles as my alter-ego, Krystel Belle: 1995 - Debutante XXIV, 1996 - Ms Gay Oregon XIV, and 1998 - Rose Empress XLI.

Since then, i have been a fixture of the local leather community. i have worked behind the scenes as stage manager at many of the Oregon State Leather Contests and joined the board of Blackout Leather Productions as secretary in 2004. During my time on the BLP board i helped volunteer at various fundraising activities including the Kinky Karnival. i am the previous secretary of the Portland Leather Alliance and have volunteered my time to KinkFest, the Vendors' Fair & PLAy Party, the Fetish Ball and Leather Tastings. Currently i am working with the Portland Girls of Leather.

Personally i identify as a service-oriented submissive girl. When given a job to do, i won't hesitate to roll up my sleeves and do what is needed. i hope to use my history and desire to serve to bring our community closer together to work together towards our common goals.

When considering my life and the path that led me here I envision it as an unfinished jigsaw puzzle. Each person I meet and each experience helps complete my picture. Most of my life pieces of my puzzle were missing and in the late 90’s I moved to Portland and pieces started to fill in. I found the BDSM/kink community and mostly played privately until 2006 when I started attending public events. In 2009 I joined Bad Girls and immediately knew I had found many missing pieces to my puzzle. I found family and community. With a passion to serve I dove in heart first, volunteering, serving on boards and committees including  Bad Girls, PLA, Oregon Leather Pride and helped co-found Portland girls of Leather. It is my pledge to continue to serve this community that helped me grow and my desire to see it thrive even more.

Bootblack Boy Kyle is from Rochester, New York.  He came to the NW in 2009 at the ripe age of 19 by way of greyhound, backpack, banjo, and ambition.  Since his days of being a street busking musician couch-surfing and sleeping in bushes he has lived in intentional communities, gone back to school to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in the Arts, and accepted his passion for dance, expression, and performing arts.  He’s traveled the west coast, organized benefit events for non-profit organizations, and regularly provides services for local fundraising events.  Commitment to building bridges between communities, as well as encouraging people to be comfortable in their skin is his intention.  A public bootblack and performance artist who can be found working alternative events around town, he experiences copious amounts of gratitude when he witnesses authentic character and honest expression in those around him.
