Hike up your chaps and fasten your butt-straps, you’re in for a wild night with the International Men of Leather. Whether you're vanilla or kinky, straight or gay, or somewhere in between, the sexy, outrageous, and profoundly moving Kink Crusaders will turn your perceptions of what Leathermen are inside out. This smart and upbeat documentary traces the history of the world’s oldest annual fetish/kink competition – the International Mr. Leather contest, which now draws thousands of men from around the world to the host city of Chicago, including gay, straight, disabled, and transgender, all who come to compete for a title and a sash. You’ll walk away believing there’s a bit of the kink crusader in all of us.
