On Saturday, October 15th, the Los Angeles Eagle was butt cheek to butt cheek with guys in breeches and fatigues for the annual Mr Regiment contest.
Sponsored by the Regiment of the Black and Tans, the contest kicked off at 22:30 with 3 excellent men competing for the title: #1 Chris Novy, #2 Keith Compton and #3 Marlon Morales. Contestants had been grilled earlier in the day in their pre-judging and were ready for their onstage competition in formal wear and speech, fetish wear and question, and the popular commando and fantasy section.

The producers tapped previous Mr Regiment title holders as the judges for the contest. They were: Ross Wood (Mr Regiment 2008 and Mr LA Leather 2008), Alex Lindsay (Mr Regiment 2009 and American Leatherman 2009), Brad Taylor (Mr Regiment 2010 and Mr LA Leather 2010), and Leo Iriarte (Mr Regiment 2011 and Mr LA Leather 2011). You can see that the Mr Regiment winners consistently go on to great things!
The standing orders of the Regiment for their contest are to have a hot and sexy time and leave the politics at home. These guys sure did deliver! By the way, your very own Leatherati Editor in Chief Loren Berthelsen (also a Deputy Member of the Regiment) was the emcee for the evening.
When the votes came in, #2 Keith Compton was second-runner-up, #1 Chris Novy was first-runner-up, and #3 Marlon Morales was named the new Mr Regiment. Marlon will go on to compete at Mr LA Leather in March 2012.
