Truth in labeling from one comic book vender at IML 2006.
WARNING: *** NOT FOR CHILDREN ***
By Peter LaBarbera
Sign reads: “Due to the entire hotel being reserved for a private convention [International Mr. Leather], all hotel facilities are closed to the general public until Tuesday, May 29th. Thank you for your cooperation. The Palmer House Hilton.”
The following are photos — there are others that we could not publish — from the “vendor fair” at International Mr. Leather 2006 and 2007, held on Memorial Day weekend (both years) at the Palmer House Hilton Hotel in Chicago. The photos were taken by this writer, walking through the IML vendor fair, which was open to the public:
Man gets tied up in IML 2006.
This man at IML 2006 was bound and gagged and bounced around with bunny ears on from one Palmer House room to another, to satisfy some twisted fetish.
Diaper fetish. The “orientation” of this grown man in a diaper and sucking on a baby pacifier is “infantilism.” He was photographed in the lobby of the Palmer House Hilton at IML 2006.
Consensual “slavery” books [nudity covered by us] on sale at International Mr. Leather. The book at left is titled, “Discipline, Obedience and Submission,” and the one at right is titled, “To Take a Slave.”
Hard-core homosexual pornography of the most vile sort was on sale everywhere at IML in 2006 and 2007. Grotesque homosexual porn videos — including “fisting” videos and “barebacking” videos featuring condomless sodomies — played at many booths, and in some vendor rooms.
Truth is stranger than fiction: this is the logo for “Water Boys” — a California-based group for “pig sex” deviants who find pleasure in urinating in and on in each other in group orgies like that which occurred at the Palmer House Hilton Hotel. Water Boys had a big booth at both IML 2006 and 2007. Of course, many “gay” men do not engage in this particular wicked activity, and some “straight” perverts do, but the fact that in the homosexual male world there is a slang term for it — “watersports” — is to be expected from a movement built on the promotion of unnatural and wrong homosexual behaviors.

Electro-torture device for sadistic sex “play.” Sign reads: “FREE ‘Violet Wand’ Demonstrations Here!”
Plenty of paddles were available at IML for the pain-loving sadists and masochists.
This IML vendor, Fort Troff, is devoted to selling “pig sex gear,” including “play sheets” to ease the clean-up of bodily fluids resulting from such satanic depravities as “fisting.” One wonders: how did the Palmer House Hilton clean up and sanitize its rooms after all the orgies that were held there? “Fisting” (man inserts hand and arm up another man’s rectum) videos played non-stop in the room behind the wall holding this banner.
Another vendor. Deviant, indeed.
Needless to say, Chicago’s premier homosexual bathhouse, Steamworks, where men go for anonymous sexual liaisons with other men, had a booth at IML. Chicago’s leading homosexual group, Equality Illinois, accepts donations from Steamworks.
Clothing item of choice for some “leathermen.”
Fascinating. The Brown Elephant — a thrift shop owned by the Howard Brown Health Center, the leading “health” organization for Chicago homosexuals — sold used pornographic magazines at IML 2007. When I asked whether they sold (condomless) “barebacking” magazines, the man attending the booth said that used to, but then stopped eight months ago at the direction of Howard Brown’s new president, Michael Cook. So, until just eight months ago, a health organization devoted to the welfare of homosexuals was selling “barebacking” porn magazines to raise money, and continues to sell hard-core pornography to do so?! Where else but in the “gay” world would you find such bizarre contradictions and happenings?
