IMsL – Tammie
2003 – Sponsored by: Kendra McClain/Great Lakes Leather Alliance
Why do you want to be IMsL?
The international recognition and reputation of the title would aide in many of my on-going projects and ideas. Becoming IMsL 2003 would be a great benefit to my dreams of bringing fundraisers to a larger, more productive scale, thus allowing the beneficiaries to benefit much more greatly. It would also bring me closer to fulfilling my goal of ‘building bridges’, between each of the sub-communities, which fall under the Leather title. (G.L.B.T.H.).
2010 – Tammie is currently in graduate school working toward furthering her career. Though she isn’t currently active within the community, she plans to make a full return after her graduation.

She conducts workshops on her craft and mentors many new bootblacks in both the Leather community and in the pansexual BDSM communities.

She has helped raise money for numerous charities both in the Southern California region and in various other locations in the United States and Canada and is a member of Mama’s family.
