I am pleased and honored to have been asked to represent Connecticut Leather once again this year as the Master of Ceremonies. I mostly enjoy getting out and seeing so many wonderful leather men and women in our community. This year like many others has been pretty busy for me, To the contestants this year, I wish them all the very best of luck! It takes a tremendous set of @#* to stand up and represent not only yourself, but the community.

Susan is a leather woman, proudly hailing from NYC. She's been a nationally certified interpreter for over 30 years. In 2002, she was asked to interpret at NY's Leather Pride Night which led to interpreting at the Mr. Eagle NYC contest and that led to interpreting leather contests and kink events all along the Northeast (Atlantic States Leather, Mr. & Ms. NJ Leather, Northeast Leather Weekend, to name a few) , as well as 12 Days in Baltimore. She's Mama's Magic Fingers in Mama's Family and Saint Fast Fingers according to the Boston Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. She speaks eloquently with her hands providing invaluable service for deaf and hard of hearing contest-goers and contestants. She is happy to be back interpreting at Mr. Connecticut Leather.
