Meet the Judges: Gerry Ebert

Representing South Australian Pups and Handlers:

Gerry Ebert


It is safe to say that Gerry Ebert is not afraid of blazing a trail. In 2015, along with a bunch of dedicated leather folk, he helped create Adelaide Leather & Fetish which single handedly revitalised the leather and fetish community in South Australia. In 2016 he won the first Mr Adelaide Leather title and helped form the Adelaide Leather and Fetish Committee. He then went on to win the inaugural Australian Leatherman title in 2017, with a platform of putting South Australia back on the fetish map, and bringing all of the leather communities of Australia together. Later that year he competed at International Mr Leather 39, and created GEAR’d, Adelaide’s first dedicated leather and fetish weekend, all while also helping create and run Dorothy’s Dungeon, a monthly camp fetish night at Oz nightclub with also taking out Most Popular Male in South Australia. After his step down as Mr Adelaide Leather 2016, he was nominated to be the president of Adelaide Leather and Fetish, and with other pillars of the Australian Leather Community helped create the first national leather float for Mardi Gras 40. What’s next for this hardworking leatherman? More firsts, paving the way for South Australia’s first Ms Leather title and first South Australia Bootblack title, and making GEAR’d bigger and better.
