I want to be Mr. Eagle NYC 2012. I have one year to prepare and train for this goal and I plan to document the process here on my blog. For those unfamiliar with Mr. Eagle, allow me to explain…
The Eagle is NYC’s last remaining leather bar and is the gathering place for all leathermen and boys in the city. It’s a wonderfully dark and friendly place with lots of history and character and it’s also my favorite bar in all of New York. My initial interests in the bar were about seeking new adventures, but what I’ve found is a supportive and warm community that represents and respects the traditions of the leather world.
Each year the Eagle holds a contest to select a Mr. Eagle who will be the face for the bar to the rest of the leather community and his year long reign usually includes charity work to help support some facet of the larger queer community. Every Mr. Eagle is different and has his own unique style and goals. I feel becoming Mr. Eagle is great honor and responsibility and I want to spend the next year learning more about the leather community/the NYC leathermen so I can be a worthy holder of this most honored title.
I also want spend the next year getting more buff so I look hotter in gear.
My goal is set, my desire is strong. Here we go.
