Congratulations to our first Mr. Lone Star Leather, Mr. Jay!
Mr. Jay hails from "Cajun Country" South Louisiana where his affinity for kink (like most) began at a young age,where the days are humid enough to make even the smoothest svelte bodies ripe with the pungent aroma of a professional football locker room after half-time. Fairly new to Leather as a lifestyle, the Mr. Lone Star Leather contest was his first official appearance as Mr. Jay. Although not originally from Texas, he got here as fast as he could. He moved to The Lone Star capital in August of 2000 at the age of 13 and considers himself an adopted native. A self-described "nature man,” Mr. Jay enjoys spending time outdoors and assisting with outreach programs that engage the public in an outdoor setting. He seeks to become a more active contributor with local LGBTQIA+ organizations, and wants to bring visibility to the Leather community as an active and beneficial representative of our local and forever-evolving queer community.
Arrrrrooooooo!! And congratulations to our first Lone Star Pup!
Pup Puck (Bryan Garcia) first started his journey in the leather community while attending the University of Houston (Go Coogs!), and the opportunities made available by being introduced to the Misfits at The Ripcord of Montrose. For 13 years, he has sought out education and training, and has established himself as a staple of LGBTQIA+ rights advocacy for South Central Texas and neighboring cities. In addition to furthering a statewide presence for pups through collaborations with Austin Puppy Culture, the Bayou City Pups, Sparkling City Pups of Corpus Christi and Texas Puppy Club of Dallas, he has fought and advocated for HIV/AIDS awareness and resource allocation. He has helped establish safe spaces for the LGBTQIA+ throughout the Texas Hill Country resulting in the establishment of Riverside Pride of New Braunfels in 2018 and a partnership in the New Braunfels Coalition to Fight Homelessness. In 2021, he established the San Antonio Kennel Klub, San Antonio’s premier pup organization, with the tenets of visibility, inclusion, education, and charity.
The date is approaching fast and we’re making preparations. Don’t miss out!
