"Good evening esteemed judges…and my kinky brothers and sisters!
I am Alan Penrod, Southeast LeatherSIR … and I am a very blessed man … because I get to share my life with my two boys…both of whom are here with me tonight.
Nitro, who I am honored to be sharing this stage with tonight, has grown into a strong, confident alpha boy … while his brother [Scott] has come to embrace and own his slave heart.
I am telling you about my boys because it clearly demonstrates my role and my responsibility as their SIR; to allow each of them to grow into the boys “they” want to be and to allow each of them have a voice … not only in our home, but in the community that they serve.
It is my responsibility to teach them how to use their voice appropriately; because it is in the eyes of my boys that others in the community see who I am.
There is no doubt in my mind! If it wasn’t for the strength, the love, and the service of my two boys, I would not be the SIR that you see standing here on this stage tonight.
So, to my beautiful boys … know that I love you and I thank you.
…And to each of you here tonight, thank you for supporting International LeatherSIR/Leatherboy and International Community Bootblack.
Have a wonderful evening!"
