If you love to wear leather, play in leather, take leather off, play nude, live nude, join us; if you are interested in pushing the limits of your body acceptance and freedom in your leather play, join us. Be a contestant for the title of Mr. GNI Leather 2017. Go to IML and maybe become IML 2018. It can happen. It just did a month ago.

Contestants are required to attend the full week at the GNI Gathering (August 20-27) in the Pocono mountains of Pennsylvania. Admission to The Gathering includes all meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks), beverages (water, soft drinks, beer, some mixed drinks, and wine), accommodations, use of camp facilities (basketball/tennis/volleyball courts, weight room, canoes, paddle boats, etc.), admission to all evening activities and more.

There is a LeatherWerks store on site and they will be holding free workshops all week in rope bondage, flogging, sounding, fisting, saline injection, toys, etc. There will be a dungeon onsite and leather play events.

The Mr. GNI Leather Contest will start on Tuesday, August 22 with a contestant / judges meet and greet. Interviews will occur on Wednesday, August 23. The contest also includes two leather challenges, one on Wednesday afternoon and the other Thursday afternoon. All contestants will tend bar for the social hour on Thursday after the second challenge. Every member of the camp is given a ballot at check-in to give to the contestant of their choice. Interviews, judges' impression of the contestant's participation in GNI activities at The Gathering, challenges, and GNI member votes will be given to the tally masters to determine the winner. Ralph Bruneau's (Mr. GNI Leather 2016) step aside and the announcement of Mr. GNI Leather 2017 will be on Thursday evening (August 24) during the intermission of the Mr. GNI Contest.
