    Justin – Treasurer

    Cigar - EagleJustin started his journey in the queer and leather worlds when he burst onto the scene volunteering his time with Pride NW as secretary and Co-Parade Coordinator before he learned that service was his heart's desire. Since that time he's discovered he had a boy side and is a collared boy to his Daddy, Tobin Britton (2001 Ms. Oregon State Leather, 2002 American Leatherwoman). He gives of his time and serves his community currently as the Vice President and a founding member of the Boys/Bois in Leather Service - Rose City and Treasurer for Blackout Leather Productions, the organization that produces the Mr. and Ms. Oregon State Leather, Oregon State Bootblack, and Oregon State Puppy Contests. Justin recently stepped up further by serving as Chair of the 2014 Oregon Leather Pride committee, whose multi-group collaboration insures a successful Leather Pride Week. Justin is true switch in being collared to his Daddy with whom he shares co-ownership of boy Spike, and is also Alpha Boy to his Daddy’s House. When he’s not serving his community he can be found serving his Daddy, teaching and playing with their boy, and living out his racing dreams on his xbox 360, which is how he ended up as Mama’s Speedracer. Be careful though about asking him how he wound up with his 2nd Mama’s name…Mama’s Chomper.
