Melbourne Rubberman 2016
Sporty Geek Liam Clark originally hails from the VIC/NSW border town of Albury -Wodonga and made history as our first Melbourne Rubberman all the way back in 2016.
During his title year, Liam successfully raised $2,016 for local LGBTI+ phone-in service Switchboard through monthly BBQ’s held the Laird Hotel and a Eurovision preview party (as Liam is a gigantic fan).
Liam also had the honour of representing Melbourne Rubber in Chicago at the 20th Mr. International Rubber contest – placing first runner up to Mr. Rubber New England, Preston So and beginning a tradition for all of his successors in placing as first runner up for this competition. Liam also judged several contests during his reign and travelled extensively – Mr. Leather Italy 2017, Mr. Rubber Poland 2017, Australian Pup and Handler 2017 and featured as a prominent judge in all Slick titleholder competitions since the conclusion of his title year.
Liam was responsible for designing our current Melbourne Rubberman Sash, which has since been given to all of his successors since. Liam had become a crucial figure in the organisation and presentation of Slick since its founding year, but has since stepped down in 2020 to pursue a rubbery adventure of his own. We thank him for all he has done for Melbourne Rubber during the early years.
