Details2018 Recap Video

The Mr. Cincinnati Leather contest was founded in 2012 by Randy Bridges.  Randy produced the event for many years at his On Broadway bar in downtown Cincinnati.

In 2018, the contest, now known simply as Cincinnati Leather, was retooled to bring even more people into this celebration of the leather community.

We are excited to see the boundaries of the leather and kink communities redefined as we honor the rich heritage of Cincinnati’s leather culture.
