Different Shades of Kink: Diversity, Inclusion, and Accessibility in Sex Positive-Communities for BIPOC and Strong Allies

February 24 @ 5:30 pm 7:00 pm PST

$15 – $25
MrBLK

This class will be held LIVE online via Zoom — you’ll receive an email with access information prior to the event. The class will NOT be recorded. Registration deadline: 3 hours prior to class PST. No day-of cancellations.

For People of Color, existing in sex-positive communities (kink, leather, polyam) is a unique experience. POC often face issues of safety, personal agency, and inclusion, all while trying to navigate the complexities of alternative lifestyles. 

Please join MrBLK for a discussion on diversity in sex-positive communities. He’ll delve into the topics of personal agency, inclusion, and safety in communities from the perspective of a POC. The discussion will be intersectional in nature by addressing the larger issues faced by many marginalized members of our respective communities. 

This presentation is open to all BIPOC, marginalized communities and strong, authentic allies that are invested in these important issues. 

MrBLK (he/him) is a BDSM and kink educator, a rope top, dominant and longtime member of the Mid-Atlantic Leather and BDSM community. MrBLK has presented nationally on diversity and inclusion for alternative communities.

We’re offering 2 free class spots to folks with financial need; please fill out this form if you are interested. Two people will be chosen randomly and contacted at least 2 weeks prior to class to confirm.
