Atlanta Leather Pride collided with the Atlanta Eagle's 31st birthday for a weekend-long celebration highlighted by crowning a new Mr. Atlanta Eagle.
David Campbell-Rosser (top photo) won the title during the annual contest on April 14, part of a kinky weekend that also included Fetish Night, BBQ Beer Blast and the Sweat Victory Party featuring DJ Neon the Glowgobear.
Campbell-Rosser took the Mr. Atlanta crown from Jonathan Gattis, who won in 2017. In 2016, it was Rodney Braddock, who replaced 2015 winner Robbie Butler. Butler took the sash from J.P. Paquette, who replaced Tank Teachworth, who took over from Jeff Donaldson, who won after Wayne Turpin, who took the title from Chandler Bearden, who was crowned in 2010. Sir Alan Penrod won a revitalized Mr. Atlanta Eagle contest in 2009.
