The panel facilitator, Contessa Alura from the ALCC, will lead introduce our topic, herself and our two other lovely panelists,  Erin and Natasha Lilliman.

The event will be split into three parts. First we will begin with a general introduction of all three of our panelists, followed by a section clarifying what alternative lifestyles are, and finally Q&A with group discussion.

The event will be free to everyone who would like to attend. It will take place at Dawson College, in Oliver’s lounge (2.C17).

Montreal Pride 2013


The ALCC/CCVA was at the Montreal Pride festivities again, at Community Day and in the Parade. Thank you to those who helped at the table, and thank you to those who marched along with us!

Community Day was great! A chance to meet people and talk about what the ALCC/CCVA is and does and make as well a lot of connections with local groups! It was hot in the sun, but we all had a great time!


The Parade was FABULOUS! Again near the leather and rubber community, and marched behind the leather flag! Vanessa got the crowd going when they got too quiet, encouraging them to make noise! Lots of presence! Like a rock star! Needless to say I think her voice was hoarse afterwards. But she says it was most definitely worth it! And all this with a broken knee cap! I guess once a soldier always lol. She soldiered on well.Image

We look forward to next years Pride!

Safety in Our Bondage Practice Group

Remember, if a member who is an actual instructor in bondage techniques approaches you about your binding methods, PLEASE listen to the person. If they say “that tie can do nerve damage” then you should put ego aside, and learn from the person.

Please be advised that the monitors will now be watching the ties more closely, and that if a monitor says something about safety, you must listen to them.
