Two years ago we broke new ground on inclusivity by being the first state to change its Sir/boy requirements to include Sirs and boys of all genders and all sexualities. For 2019 we take it even further by adding Mx. Minnesota Leather Pride. Mx. rounds out our existing titles of Minnesota Leather Sir/boy and Ms. Minnesota Leather Pride for a total of four titles that will be on the line for Minnesota Leather Pride Weekend.
