Karen Ultra | MIL2020 Emcee
Producer. MC. Judge. Tally master. Writer. Caterer. Comedian. The only thing Karen Ultra hasn’t done during a leather event is deliver triplets while performing all six roles in the “Cell Block Tango” on stilts. Her skills on a stage have been seen at IML, ABW, Colorado Leather Fest, Iowa Leather Weekend, Mr. Indiana Leather, Mr. Houston Leather, and several others she refuses to mention anymore. Her comedy has literally created a 5.5 earthquake, and has been known to offend men, women, marsupials, Sea Monkeys and Muppets. When she’s not busy being a mother to her clone or keeping vampire’s hours for her day job, she can be found around the St. Louis area antique shopping, looking for new pretty boxes to place the hearts she has ordered collected by her huntsmen.
Daddy Jeff | Mr. Midwest Leather 2016
MIL2020 Den Daddy
Daddy Jeff stumbled into Leather in 2004. His super-secret knock password was “Teach me how to hurt you.” He sees Leather through the eyes of a daddy – a chance to help each individual find what makes them special. A member of the Kentucky Leather Brotherhood, Titans of the Midwest, and Mr. Friendly – Team Louisville, he is also the Vendor coordinator for Tri-State Leather Weekend and a member of the IML contestant handler team. Last but not least, he is proud to be one of the 66 brothers of the class of IML-IMBB 2017.
Daddy Jeff shares his life with his boy Collin, playing xBox, binging Netflix, and trying to find all the things that make the boy squirm and shake. He is grateful to be part of the Kentucky leather community, a unique and accepting collection of freaks, geeks, and weirdos of all shapes, presentations, and identities. He believes that we are all better when we #LeatherTogether (yes, that’s a verb).
