Droppin’ on in!

Drop in Day at the ALCC- May Day!
 
What a beautiful day in the neighbourhood… and a great drop in day. Super friendly and great people came by the ALCC to talk and relax. The bake sale to support our Leather Lifestyle friends went well. Contessa Alura made some delicious cupcakes & there were cookies and other treats on hand. In addition, a great ally from the Gender Advocacy 2110 Centre showed up. She was very enthusiastic about our organization, as we are about hers. There will definitely be a great partnership between our centres. A great day all around!

We look forward to the fun and exciting ventures to come!

Finally here… BDSM for Dummies!

Our first group was very quiet due to the day being the first lovely spring day of the year. It’s actually a lucky break for me since Gilles found a bunch of typo’s in my BDSM Beginnger pamphlet so I was kind of saved.
 
This new group will essentially replace our old BDSM Etiquitte and BDSM Beginner Safety. We feel a group is a better setting to encourage new people to come and learn about BDSM and share about their fears and concerns or question.
 
This group is for all those new to BDSM or interested in learning more. The first hour will be an info session about BDSM, conducting yourself in the community, getting started at events, what to wear, how to meet people, and of course providing you the basics you need to know about safety and experimenting. The second hour we will open the floor to questions and sharing. The last hour will be for everyone to chat, socialize, and make friends!
