The annual Leather Ball was held this past Saturday, August 9, at the Phoenix Concert Theatre.  The event is one of the main events during Toronto Leather Pride Week hosted by Heart of the Flag Federation Inc. (HOTF).

Before the big party, TLP competitions were held hosted by dynamic duo of Richard Ryder , host of the morning show on ProudFM and OutTV and Sir Matthew Pavelich, Mr. Leatherman Toronto 2008.

Congratulation to the winners: Brett Murden and Luca GasolineQueen, are the new Mr. Leatherman Toronto 2015 and Ms. Leather Toronto 2015 respectively — with Luca GasolineQueen, Sprocket D’Husky and Brett Murden.

The event drew nearly 1000 leather, rubber, kink, fetish enthusiasts.   Money was raised at the event to benefit the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives.

INspired Media (publisher of theBUZZ, PinkPlayMags, and The Pink Pages Directory), is a proud Media Sponsor of Toronto Leather Pride, and designer/producer of the festival’s Official Guide.
