Sir Bud Ingram-Lile

I am delighted to serve a judge for GLLA-MI; much thanks to Sir Merrill for the honor!

I have been involved in leather and kink for almost thirty years. As part of the "lost generation", I initially had to fumble around a bit and find my way. Ultimately, I was fortunate to find leatherfolk who taught me a great deal about leather, kink, and the joys of having a leather Family.

I entered into a Sir/boy relationship with Randy Ingram-Lile in 1996. Over the years, our relationship has morphed into partners, Handlers, husbands, and today, co-Sirs of a growing leather household. Today, our Family consists of our collared pup of six years, his pack, a service boy, a young Dominant, and a Sir of long acquaintance and friendship. Add to that "Family adjacent" Sirs, pups, and boys...we need a chart to keep track of them all!

I love providing comfort, support, knowledge, and history to those who seek it. I earnestly want to emulate those before me who took a sometimes-confused young man and helped shape him into what I am today.

Sexually, I flag black, grey, light/dark blue, teal, yellow, red, dark pink, purple, yellow, fuchsia, hunter green, lime green, beige, leopard, tan, houndstooth, and the elusive mindfuck hanky (which has yet to be created) [Or maybe it already has been. -SM]. Most are on the left - ask me which ones I can flag on the right! I prefer playmates who are interested in the kinks themselves as well as serving; the hottest energy is playing with a boy who I KNOW wants to be beaten/fisted/scared a bit.

I have been happy to assist many contestants with title run prep; I also served as Lead Director for the inaugural Minnesota Sir/boy/Ms contest. And, we have two titleholders in the Family - our beloved puppy (MME 2012) and my wonderful husband (MME 2018).

I look forward to helping in the selection of the next GLLA-MI Titleholders!

Bootblack Cathy, Indiana Bootblack 2018

Bootblack Cathy, Indiana Bootblack 2018 is a girly pansexual who has been involved in the BDSM/Kink community for over ten years and leather community for about 4 years.

Bootblacking is Cathy's true love. She has bootblacked and presented at several events both locally and beyond such as Power Exchange Summit (in Ohio), Leather Leadership Conference in Atlanta and fundraisers for the Indiana Falcons. She is a full backpatch member and Road Captain for Indiana Leather Club, honorary member and Bootblack for Indiana Falcons and a full member of Titans of the Midwest.

You will find her running through the crowd and laughing, enjoying the company of others, that is of course if she doesn't have her hands on some leather.

As a red hankie enthusiast and religion fetishist, he promotes radical sexual expression and encourages others to be unafraid to explore themselves as sexual beings despite silly homonormative conventional wisdom.
