Four men and one woman sought the top leather titles at the Atlanta Eagle on Saturday, crowning a celebratory anniversary weekend for the bar during Atlanta Leather Pride.

Jeff Donaldson (top photo left) took the Mr. Atlanta Eagle sash, replacing Wayne Turpin as the bar’s new daddy. Jackie Hubschman (top photo right) won Ms. Atlanta Eagle, the first time in a more than a decade that a female counterpart has been named. The contest came as the bar celebrated its 25th anniversary and the weekend-long, third annual Atlanta Leather Pride.

Donaldson competed for the crown with Brian Acker, who took runner up, Dave Baker and Kevin Panther. Hubschman, a crowd favorite, did not face any competitors for her title.

UPDATE: The weekend celebration of the Eagle’s 25th anniversary and Atlanta Leather Pride raised $2,000 for the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom Foundation.
