On the Gear Night in November, we hold a contest to choose the year’s Mr. Austin Gear. We invite judges from across the country and accept applications from contestants from all over Texas. Mr Austin Gear represents the club as well as the Gears Community in Austin. Open to all who identify as male, he is encouraged to travel across the state, country, and internationally to promote the Gear and all forms of positive self-expression. The winner is eligible and encouraged to compete in IML, MIR, and other Gear contests worldwide.

Applications for Mr Austin Gear 2022 will be available in September 2022.
