ST. LOUIS – Mr. Missouri Leather 2014 will be the weekend of February 28 – March 2, with all events taking place in the NEW JJ’s Clubhouse Annex in St. Louis, Missouri. Sponsored by Gateway Motorcycle Club since 1983, this event is one of the longest running annual Leather contests in the country that is sponsored by a single club.

The weekend will kickoff with a “Meet and Greet”, Friday night at 10 pm., for the contestants, judges. The contestants and judges will be introduced at Midnight, at this time the contestants will draw their numbers. The judges for MML will be announced at a later date.

Second place will receive $100, with Third place receiving $50. The informal Gateway Guy contest has been a feature of the Mr. Missouri Leather contest to actively involve more people in the event and perhaps to encourage future contestants for Mr. Missouri Leather. The weekend will conclude on Sunday morning with the Mr. Missouri Leather Victory Brunch at Hamburger Mary’s.
Gateway MC was established in 1973. For a number of years, all the members had to have motorcycles, and most of the activities were cycle related. Eventually, like other such clubs around the country, Gateway developed into a men’s social organization in which motorcycles were not the only focus. Activities broadened to encompass the Levi/Leather community as a whole and its need for its own identity, events and network of brotherhood.
