After many years of absence, a dedicated team of guys in 2018 brought the competition back. Through the generous support of a number of sponsors, and with the help of the team behind Leather Pride in Antwerp, the competition brought together guys from across Europe. Many of the local, regional and national clubs were represented and a formidable team of judges were on hand to ensure the Mr Rubber Europe title was won by a candidate best placed to represent our community through 2018 and early 2019. Michi from Switzerland was elected, and many of you will have met him at rubber club meetings across Europe and indeed the world. Our first Mr Rubber Europe has done a tremendous job of being a visible ambassador for our community – and now it is time to find his successor.

As Mr Rubber Europe 2019, you will have been elected to represent the whole rubber community in Europe. You need to be visible, and ensure that you do your utmost to advance and grow the community where possible. We mentioned earlier that you need to be passionate – during the title holding year, we would ask that you become an advocate for something that you have a personal interest in – some ideas:
Building the Community – attending events, generating discussions, involving all attendees, talking to those that may be interested in rubber, being a mentor, sharing advice and making connections
Leading a health/wellbeing campaign – our community can experience many challenges – sexual health, mental health, drug issues, acceptance in the gay community, or acceptance beyond the community – family, friends or colleagues
Bringing the wider fetish community together – in some countries or local communities the fetish scene maybe quite small – how can the community come together to become more visible and grow
Supporting communities through internet and social media channels in countries where being gay is still illegal – or where having a rubber fetish still poses many challenges
It really is up to you to chose something that you are passionate about – and then bringing that idea alive. Making it the focus of your conversations at events, building a web presence, launching a Facebook Profile – becoming even more visible – and making the Mr Rubber Europe title known across the global community.
During your title year you are of course encouraged to attend as many events as possible, and specifically we would need you to be at Folsom Europe, Mr International Rubber and of course the next Mr Rubber Europe election at the end of your year.
If this sounds like something that you have the energy, focus and commitment to do – send in your application today.
We are building a strong community – what can you bring to the table?
