Barrett "Tank" Teachworth
American Leatherboy 2013
Pup Tank Teachworth resides in Atlanta, Georgia. He is an active full member of the Atlanta based leather club Panther Leather/Levi, and also supports ATL-PAH (Atlanta Pups and Handlers). He is also an associate member of the Jersey boys of Leather. Pup Tank works full time as a restaurant manager in a steakhouse north of Atlanta, and also works part time bar tending for the Atlanta Eagle, his home bar, where he won his first leather title in 2013, Mr. Atlanta Eagle. He is also Mama’s All-American Pup.
“My time as Mr. Atlanta Eagle has been an incredibly powerful experience. I’ve had the pleasure of supporting a variety of charitable organizations, such as Lost and Found Atlanta (a youth LGBTQI homeless shelter,) Alphabet Soup Atlanta (a Transgender support group for friends, allies, partners and men and women in transition,) P.A.L.S. Atlanta (Pets Are Loving Support) and Leather Heart Foundation. Being Mr. Atlanta Eagle has allowed me the opportunity to make the Atlanta Eagle not just an iconic leather bar, but a home to many who felt they had no place to belong. It has truly been one of the greatest pleasures of my life serving as Mr. Atlanta Eagle.” To transition all that from a local bar title into the national stage has been “a tremendous blessing, and I could not be more fortunate, as I am surrounded by the best men and women, and hearts and minds in the community through the American Leather Family.”
Pup Tank also enjoys making the good pups go bad! His kinks and fetishes include puppy play, impact play, breath control, uniforms, sports gear, humiliation, interrogation play, power exchanges, and many more.
As the American Leatherboy 2013, Pup Tank has chosen to champion a cause in men’s sexual health, specifically through PrEP, Pre-Exposure Prophylactic, a medical treatment used in conjunction with condoms to further prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS. He feels as though we must embrace every opportunity to affect change in our community, and if only one life is spared, then the effort is absolutely worth it.
Pup Tank would like to express his deepest gratitudes to Atlanta Panther Leather / Levi for supporting him from the first time he put on leather in public until now, as well as Sir Alan Penrod, Pup Nitro Hankinson, Daddy Sal Susino and Daddy Dion Daly-Susino, and the Atlanta Eagle, for being the playground every pup deserves.
