Mr. International Rubber & The Rubber Blowout Weekend 2021
Every November Chicago hosts the International Rubber and The Rubber Blowout Weekend! Join in the fun with gear intensive kinksters from around the globe for a weekend filled with shopping, playing, socialising, education, entertainment and pups.
The Mister International Rubber contest has many years of history under its boots. The contest is the centrepiece of the weekend and acts as the catalyst to gather like-minded fetishists in one city for one special rubbery weekend of fun.
If you have never attended this contest you are missing out on the fun. Speeches are a rarity from the contest stage.
The contest categories are designed as lighthearted and fun entertainment pieces.
The contestants will hold your attention and entertain you during their time on stage, while representing the larger gay men’s rubber community in a variety of settings and situations after the contest.
Rubber gear is sexy, erotic and fun. Mr. International Rubber Chicago promises you something sexy, something erotic, and a whole lot of fun during our contest. You will laugh. You will be entertained. And you will be glad you attended our contest. You have their word on that.
The Center on Halsted is the LGBTQ Center for the City of Chicago. At the Center on Halsted, Mr. International Rubber is given free reign of the entire third floor of the building including a gymnasium; art gallery; locker room; outdoor patio space; black box theater complete with a full suite of lighting, sound and audio-visual equipment; dressing rooms for contestants and entertainers; and lobby/pre-function space.
Additionally, meetings rooms on the second floor serve both contestant interviews and host kink and fetish related workshops throughout the weekend. Finally, the first floor features a Whole Foods Market providing organic and healthy foods to keep you powered and fed throughout the entire weekend.
Come explore the Center on Halsted, during MIR or any time of the year and discover an LGBTQ organization that truly understands that we are all in this together!
The highlight of the event is the Mr. International Rubber Contest which takes place at The Theater of Museum of Contemporary Art.
