Completed the Play Monitor class! NOW WHAT??!!!

Great turn-out for the Play Monitor training, yay!!! This goes to show how many great people are out there that want to give back to the community by keeping public play parties safe! Thank you to everyone for your interest and participation.


It’s impossible to cover all the necessary info and topics even in a three hour class. While theory is important as well as understanding the basics, Play Monitor training really happens in real time out at events, learning from skilled monitors who can help you. We ask that you attend at least six events in training as an “observer” before you decide to take on the role of monitor and always ask the advice of trained and skilled Veteran Play Monitors.

SO WHAT DO YOU DO NEXT?… Read the rest of this entry

We represent all persons who seek alternatives ways to live, love and simply be! / Le CCVA cherche à créer un nouveau logo pour représenter notre centre communautaire et la diversité des communautés que nous représentons.  Nous avons grandi d’un centre communautaire “kinky” en un “parapluie” dans lesquelles les communautés marginalisées, et la variation des identités sexuelles trouvent sécurité et soutien.

ponderWe have recently begun a Submissive’s group at the ALCC but have heard varying feedback from the community about whether it should remain closed to only people who identify as submissive OR if it should be all encompassing to include the multitude of different identities within the BDSM/Kink community. / Nous avons récemment commencé le Groupe Soumis au CCVA, mais avons entendu divers commentaires de la communauté à savoir si il doit rester limité aux seules personnes qui s’identifient comme soumises ou si il devrait tout englober la multitude d’identités différentes que nous retrouvons dans la communuté BDSM / Kink.
