Be A Contestant

SouthEast LeatherFest has great pride in our titleholders. Our contests allow everyone to fully participate in the selection of our next generation of titleholders. 

Expect support from your past and present titleholders. If you've heard the rumor that it costs $10,000 to be a titleholder it is not the experience of most titleholders and it is a choice.  We help you network to find places to stay and experience a cost effective and adventure filled year. Have more questions if this is right for you? Drop SELF a note on the interest form below!
