Leather lovers all over the world will assemble this May 23rd to the 27th in Chicago to celebrate 41 years of Leather Love. It’s one of, if not the, largest gay leather-fetish event in the world!

The IML weekend will hold several dance parties and events that will satisfy your leather cravings.

Dance and hunt your way into a dance floor filled with the sexiest guys in leather in BRUT.  Happening on May 24th at the Fantasy Nightclub. "Squeezing" your body into a crowd has never been this fun!

If you have the goods to show, then flaunt it. The Pocono Eagle Boots & Bourbon Party is a strictly "Boots Only" party hosted by Gay Naturists International (GNI). You'll be free to accessorize (Harnesses, Vests, Chaps, Cockrings, Ball Stretchers, etc.), but jocks or pants will not be allowed. This party will showcase all the hot packages on May 24th in the Oxford Room at the The Congress Plaza Hotel.
