The Atlanta Eagle celebrated its 25th anniversary and Leather Pride weekend with the Mr. and Ms. Atlanta Eagle competition on April 14, 2012. Jeff Donaldson got the most woofs to take home the title and Brian Acker earning the first runner-up. Donaldson takes over the title from outgoing 2011 Mr. Atlanta Eagle Wayne Turpin.
Jackie Hubschman, although the lone competitor for Ms. Atlanta Eagle, received overwhelming support — tons of hoots and hollers from everyone — as she strutted her stuff. This year marks the first time a Ms. Atlanta Eagle contest has been held in more than a decade. Hubscham takes over the title as Pamm Burdett, a longtime leather enthusiast and community activist, steps aside.
The competition included contestants competing in bar wear, fetish wear and play gear.
Alan Penrod, the Atlanta Leather Pride coordinator, had the support of the Panther Leather Levi Club as presenting sponsor again this year. They announced today that fundraisers for the weekend totaled $2,000 to be donated to the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom Foundation. This money will be used by the foundation to support their education and outreach programs throughout the community.
Donaldson and Hubschman now ar eligible to compete in international competitions representing the Atlanta Eagle.
