The potluck on Saturday, February 26th was VERY well attended! Lots of people, sharing food and chatting. Some showed just for the potluck, and some from the Dungeon Monitor training had remained behind for it. Sandwiches, pizza, chips, pop, and chocolate chip cake with great chit chat!
For those looking for a way to just get to know more in the community in a relaxed atmosphere, this is a good way. Come on by for the next one!
We would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to do as much as possible to support Bill C-389 which is now before the senate. This Bill, once law, would make it illegal to discriminate against a person based on gender identity or expression, which until now has not been protected in law for the nation and very few actually protect.
There are those who claim this is a “bathroom bill”. No, it is not. There are those among us who need this protection. Yes, in Canada, there IS discrimination. I, Vanessa Cummings, can personally vouch for that. Until I presented myself in “drab” (read: male) I was denied renting an apartment even. Yes, here in Canada, yes, here in Montreal. The one time I presented as male for an apartment I got it, no problems at all. Showed the exact same paperwork that I had shown before. No, it was not “luck of the draw” – there was discrimination.
Being transsexual is NOT a “choice”. It is NOT a “lifestyle”. A person who is transsexual is someone who is transitioning from one sex to another. The gender they identify with. And there are those who choose not to fully transition, who actually desire to be a “third gender”. There is no reason to deny them basic human rights.
This is a very very very important bill to get passed through the senate NOW. Why? Because since the Conservatives were essentially the only ones to really vote against it in parliament, there is a chance that even they can trigger an election any day now, thus killing the bill in the senate. If this bill is killed in the senate, we are stuck starting from scratch – again. This is why an election now is definitely not desireable.
How do you help? Well, check out below!
Sign now! Encourage your Senator to ensure protection!!!!
On Saturday, February 12th, the Crossdressers Unite Group met. Snacks were there, and talk was lively. Among topics in discussion were the passage of Bill C-389 through Parliament, and how it just needs Senate approval to be law. This bill, once law, would give protection for gender identity and gender expression in Canada. Let’s hope it passes!
Do not forget, you do not need to come dressed or even dress at the group. It is a non-judgemental group, and there to help others. If you have a spouse/significant other you would like to bring to the group that is permitted as well.
The naked yoga for February 20 is to be rescheduled – not cancelled – just rescheduled. New date and time to be announced shortly.
The Amateur Bondage Group met on February 6, and it was very well attended indeed! Some regular faces and some new ones too! Welcome to those who are new!
Members practiced their rope bondage on each other, learned some stuff and taught others what they have learned as well. Many are well on their way to being pretty proficient in rope bondage it looks like! One subject was even put into a hogtie incorporating not just the usual method, but legs to crotch harness as well as wrists, and the hair tied back to the ankles as well!
Looking forward to the next group!
The ALCCVA was at Impervia, put on by the Royal Penthouse, on January 29th, and what an event! The ALCCVA was represented well there, with many members giving demo’s in the dungeon area, and helping to monitor the dungeon.
Impervia had many wonderful shows, including fire dancers, pole dancers and more. The performances were flawless as usual! Between shows the partygoers would dance, mingle, and socialize.
In the dungeon, Pat Pierce did an amazing needle play demo, where not only were needles placed meticulously and in a beautiful pattern, but the girl having her mouth stitched shut. The result when he was done was simply awesome.
The ALCCVA Team had some floggings going on (yours truly was the recipient of a 4-on-1 flogging… most wonderful!), as well as mummification, and some mummified breath play with a gas mask.
Congrats to Conrad and crew for putting on such an amazing event!
And thank you to the ALCCVA team that helped – Contessa Alura, kinky_k, petal, Sadistfaction, Gilles, Blue-Eyed Eve, and do I thank myself? lol
The ALCCVA was at the Salon de l’Amour et de la Seduction (Everything To Do With Sex Show) the weekend of January 21-23. This is an event that travels from city to city, and this past weekend was Montreal’s stop!
We had our table in the dungeon area of the show, near one of the entrances so that people could see the table and stop in and ask questions and learn about us and also of alternative lifestyles and gender identity. There were pamphlets on the table, books, cards and of course your trusty volunteers behind the table and in the dungeon area both working the floor and in the dungeon area. And a few lucky people got some gift certificates on Sunday for a free workshop!
The team got to meet many interesting people, and there should be quite a few new faces at the workshops and groups as a result of the show. And many also learned that the misconceptions about alternative lifestyles are just that – misconceptions.
A big thank you to all the volunteers! And a big thank you to the show organizers, staff, and promoters! We look forward to the next one!
