Illinois Leather Alliance to Produce Illinois Leather Titles
Michael and Angie Shorten, International Master/slave 2014, are pleased to announce that they have formed the Illinois Leather Alliance to produce the Illinois Leather titles contest, starting in 2016. The contest will be held on March 18th and 19th, 2016 at it’s traditional location – Touché – known as “Chicago’s Leather Bar Since 1977.”
“We are really honored to be taking on this huge responsibility.” said Master Michael. “We started our titleholding as Illinois Master and slave 2013. This is our home and our roots.”
Michael and Angie will be producing contests for Illinois Leather Sir, Illinois Leather boy, Illinois Ms. Leather Pride, Illinois Bootblack, Illinois Master/slave and Illinois Puppy/Trainer. Many of the contests are feeders into the Great Lakes regional contests, held during Great Lakes Leather Alliance (GLLA) Weekend in Indianapolis, Indiana. From GLLA, winners compete in International contests for their title.
Michael and Angie have accepted the role of producers after the resignation of Master Bear Abbott and Ron Billiman, who co-produced the Illinois titles from 2011 through 2015.
“We want to thank Master Bear and Ron for their contributions to the titles and contest and we hope we will make them, our wonderful state and our Great Lakes region proud.” said slave Angie. “It’s time to roll up our sleeves, get to work and produce a great contest. We hope we’ll see everyone come to Chicago in March to get their sexy on and have some fun!”
