Mr. Christopher Street West Leather 2017
Chris Ryan was born and raised in Los Angeles. For over 10 years, Chris has worked in the corporate healthcare industry and recently launched a catering business, The Caterer LA. Chris is an ex-Catholic school boy who was introduced to the leather community when a friend brought him to a 2014 Kinkster event held at the Eagle. In 2015, he created the Black Ball, an awards event benefiting the Los Angeles Band of Brothers, which sparked his drive towards event hosting and created connections that would lead his towards his current title as Mr. Christopher Street West Leather 2017.
Chris currently volunteers at the Los Angeles LGBT Center, Aids Life Cycle, Human Rights Campaign, and The Tom of Finland Foundation.
