Head Judge

Timothy Lee

Timothy just celebrated his 8th anniversary as a full member of The Tradesmen where he is currently sharing the office of Road Captain.  Serving as an Officer five of the seven years he has been a member, he has been honored twice as Tradesmen of the Year.

After the Tradesmen took over a struggling NC Leather contest, his Club brothers honored him by appointing him as Mr. NC Leather 2013.   He went on to compete and earned the title of Mr. S.E.L.F 2015.  At the request of the promoters, he carried the title for an additional year, so he was also Mr. S.E.L.F. 2016.

In addition to the Tradesmen, Timothy volunteers at several organizations which serve our community.  He is the Sign Language interpreter for R.A.I.N., where he has interpreted the program at the Charlotte AIDS Walk for the last 12 years. 

Still calling Charlotte, NC home, Timothy travels the country and sometimes the world performing his job in corporate meeting planning and logistics, primarily focused in the pharmaceutical industry.  His work travels sometimes afford him the unexpected opportunity to attend Leather Events as well as many bars and clubs across the nation.

Timothy feels honored when asked to participate in events, especially those taking place in the South East region, including S.E.L.F., The NC Leather Contest, and SC Pride in Leather.  He also was the keynote speaker at Columbia Leather Order’s Run October 2018.

Judge #3

boy Andy

Boy Andy is a born and raised southern boy from Sumter, SC. He discovered the lifestyle at the tender age of 17 and has been actively pursuing kink ever since. He met his first Leather friends/family about 10 years later. They taught him the beginnings of the traditions and ideals that he holds dear today.

Boy Andy is a bootblack, a boy, a puppy, a little and many other things. He is a former titleholder, having held the SELF Bootblack Title in 2008 and the SELF Boy Title in 2012.

Boy Andy works with events all over the southeast, including SELF, Frolicon, and DomCon Atlanta. His passion for teaching comes through whenever you sit through one of his classes on topics ranging from Erotic Boot Blacking to The Mind of a Boy.

Boy Andy's interests in the life style are varied but tend towards edge play. If its sharp, pointy, or bloody, then he loves it. He also enjoys impact play, breath play, and mind games. Outside of the lifestyle Andy loves reading, swimming, spending time with his 10 year old niece, and playing trivia board games.

You'll likely find Boy Andy in the smoking area or bootblack stand of whatever event you happen to be at, so give him a holler!
