Sherbert.EddieEddie Sherbert of Dallas, the current Mr. Texas Leather and Mr. Hidden Door titleholder, will be traveling to Chicago over the Memorial Day Weekend, May 26-31, to compete in the International Mr. Leather contest. Sherbert’s win at Mr. Texas Leather in February qualified him to compete for the 2017 IML title. But because the 2015 Mr. Texas Leather winner — who had been scheduled to compete at IML this year — is unable to travel to the contest, the contest’s producers asked Sherbert to represent the title this year at the international competition. “It’s an honor to represent the Lone Star State at this year’s IML,” Sherbert said. “I am excited about this opportunity to serve my community in such a prestigious competition, and I give thanks to everyone that has supported me while on this incredible journey.”
