The 2018 Judges

Get to know our distinguished panel of Intergalactic Judges.


Lady alycyn

Lady Alycyn is a leatherdyke who has been involved with the women’s, queer and the Leather/BDSM communities in the Pacific Northwest for over two decades. She is now, or has been, an activist, advocate, ally, board member, contest judge, community organizer, DM, educator, emcee, event coordinator/producer, mentor, party host, titleholder and volunteer. Lady Alycyn has a panache for protocol and embraces being described as sweetly sadistic.



Darryn's Leather journey started in 1978 as an out n proud Gay Youth in pre Aids New York City. He quickly developed a lifelong adoration of the men in leather and the stomp of boots down Christopher Street to the piers, bars and back alleys of the city.

Darryn is a firm believer in the magic of BDSM and continues to practice his craft at home in a remote ranch in Oregon. He lives happily with his girl of 13 years, working daily on his own version of Leatherdaddy and the Femme. He still writes, travels and plays with those leather souls that inspire him and can't wait to report on some new kinkfiled adventures.



A member of PDX Bootblacks, they love any opportunity to black at public events, but are equally passionate about finding all opportunities to offer leather care, from fixing a femme’s heels at IMsL to guiding someone through their first shine poolside at Desire. When they’re not bootblacking, Jax operates a monthly queer dungeon party that raises money for LGBTQ+ organizations, is a patched member of Portland’s chapter of Dykes on Bikes, and can be found baking, woodworking, or enjoying a fine cigar. If they can’t be found, they’re probably on a long motorcycle ride with their partner, Morgan. Jax flags black, grey, and red on the left, and loves boot play, from both sides.

julie aurora

julie aurora is a majestic, slutty, trans woman, a gleefully sadistic submissive, and a collared girl whose Miss pissed all over her and fucked her silly halfway through writing this bio. Kinky since she first discovered sex, she's specifically been in the kink scene for over ten years. She got a little bit famous when her first Crashpad episode won a Feminist Porn Award for Best Trans Sex, and has done various other types of sex work throughout her illustrious creative career. A punk anarchist (ACAB), her attractions are primarily femme4femme. She loves blood, asphyxiation, and raunchy fluid-filled fuck-fests, and she has a powerful dick/cum fetish. julie aurora likes to find and explore edges, and engages in kink as a spiritual practice. She's a whore, a service-oriented submissive, and one very decadent bitch.

mr. garrett

An experienced judge, both locally and regionally,  Mr. Garrett, as he is more commonly known, has been an active member of the Community for over a decade, as well as a practicing kinkster for many times that, his primary interest is in mentorship; growing the Community through play, trust, and lots and lots of wet wipes.

With a broad range of interests and large, non-collapsible hands, Mr. Garrett is always willing to help explore boundaries. Just take a breath, relax, and remember, the safe word is Armadillo
