January 15-17 the ALCC/CCVA was at the Salon de l’amour et de la seduction in the “Kink Corner.” We provided information, education, demonstrations, and educational stage presentations. The Vac-bed’s were unbelievably popular, as well as the violet wand! So many people were volunteering to try out different activities at our different play stations!!! All our communities were represented (Poly, Trans*, Bi/Pansexual, Swingers, and Asexuals)! Thank you to all those who volunteered to help make this such a success and to all who stopped by!

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!
