Meet The Judges
Sir Justin St. Clair
International IPHW Representative
Sir Justin has been active in the Chicago Leather community for nearly two decades. Most recently, he served the International community as International Puppy and Trainer Contest’s 2014/15 International Trainer. After his title year, he was asked to step up to produce the International contest. He is excited for the future of IPTC as it realigns with IPC to become International Pup and Handler Weekend in July of this year. Locally, he has maintained being active in both the Chicago Puppy Patrol and Team Friendly Chicago, as a board member of both organisations.
Sir Justin is fierce advocate of education as a means to combat conflict. He travels more weekends than not, teaching, judging, and speaking. He is proud to have represented IPTC in 27 states and 7 foreign countries. He has also written a book on Puppy Play, BARK!, based on his experiences across America.
He is happily claimed by his family-pack: Alpha-pup Kona; Beta-pups Leaf, Magnus, Chase; Omega-pup Icarus; and Harley the pig.
Master Pierre Brand.
Pierre Brand became involved in the Brisbane Leather scene around a decade ago with the local leather social club, BootCo. He won the title of Mr Queensland Leather in 2008, then went on to become the first Mr Australia & New Zealand Leather in 2009. With this title he competed at IML 31 in Chicago and finished in the top 20. Pierre then took on the role of President of BootCo in 2009 for the next 3 years.
During his time as President, he aimed to encourage younger members of the community to become more involved in the club. He also encouraged more of a variety of kink and fetishes with themed nights. It was also during this time that a lot of progress was made to include trans guys. As Mr Qld Leather and later as President, he was closely involved in the birth of Brisbane Leather Pride. He also encouraged the pup scene in Queensland to grow and become more accepted.”
Australian Titleholder Representative
Liam Clark is the inaugural and reigning Melbourne Rubberman title holder and the first runner up at Mr International Rubber 20. Liam is proud to represent not just the Melbourne rubber scene, but the whole kink community in general. A frequent fixture at The Laird, he stands for body positivity and loves to see everyone feeling their kinky best. When it comes to fetish, Liam’s motto is: “If it turns you on, put it on!”
Although he doesn’t identify as a pup (in fact, he’s pretty sure deep down he’s a Cat!) he is very supportive of the pup community and the way they have reinvigorated much of the international fetish scene. Liam will be looking for someone who represents what a title holder should be — someone who is true to themselves and is passionate about representing for all Australian Pups and Handlers.
