"The-e-e-e-re she is Ms. Leather Colorado!" Bert Parks would be spinning in his grave at the thought of emceeing this contest. The Ms. Leather Colorado 2007 competition is a far cry from and far more interesting than the Miss America pageant. Let's see: Predictable tedious questions about world peace, or a hot fantasy spanking skit? Bland Barbie dolls in bathing suits bouncing down the runway, or leather/fetish formalwear-clad dommes and subs stalking the catwalk?
The Ms. Leather Colorado title was originally registered in 1997. After changing ownership a few times, it finally came to rest in the capable hands of co-producers Miss Eryn and Michael Vrooman. Miss Eryn says that the title's goal is to promote education about the leather/BDSM community and to raise funds for the titleholder's choice of a Colorado non-profit agency.
The wild weekend got going last night at 9 p.m. at the Denver Eagle (1475 36th Street) with a meet-and-greet and the announcement of the contestants and judges. Be there today at 11 a.m. sharp when the grrrls get grilled during contestant interviews at the Denver Sanctuary (www.denversanctuary.com). After a disco nap, lather up your leathers and strike out for the Atrium Bar & Grill (554 South Broadway) at 8 p.m. to see Jae Januze, Ms. Leather Colorado 2006, step down and hand her crown of thorns to the wicked winner. Tomorrow afternoon at 4 p.m., fly back to the Eagle to raise a beer and give one last cheer for the victorious vixen at her congratulatory beer bust. Come on, baby, make it hurt so good!
