In the upcoming print edition of the Voice, we’ll have a story on Jack Duke, the reigning Mr. Dallas Eagle and Mr. Texas Leather, who hopes to become — next weekend! — the International Mr. Leather (a position currently held by fellow Dallasite Jeffrey Payne). In the run-up to the contest in Chicago next week, Duke is holding his final local fundraiser on Thursday (before we hit the streets), so I figured we’d give a shout-out on his behalf.
For a $20 donation to the travel fund, you can join Duke and others in the leather community at a private residence in Oak Cliff for cocktails and appetizers, starting at 8 p.m. If you wonder whether it will be worth it … well, let’s put it this way: I’ve met Jack and photographed him. He’s not only nice, he’s hot, with a sexy, make-ya-melt Italian accent.
