Kinky Curiosities Party Monday!
DJ, Royalty & the NCSF
We're just days away from the Alibi Fetish Events takeover of Sister to bring you the results of the Alibi's Sex Survey and give you a taste of our Kinky Curiosities. Read on to discover our DJ, favorite drag queen and all about the charity we'll be supporting by partying on Valentine's Eve.
Spinning classics, originals and an eclectic soundtrack to keep us moving all while taking care of our performers, is our very own Kate SC on the decks for Kinky Curiosities! This dynamic DJ is an artist, performer and musician in her own right. She's a favorite collaborator of Cabaret Audacity, a staple of the local goth/industrial/ebm scene and kept us dancing at the Fetish Formal. Check out her Soundcloud and look forward to her aural love to surround you on Monday night.
We're also delighted to welcome back the first lady of Sidewinders, Renée Toya-Bouvier. This powerhouse of beauty and talent continues to wow us with her presence, and we're delighted to give her a platform to give us a glimpse of her wild side. She is also known as Renato N. Estacio, Artistic Director for the Southwest Arts Group and the Cabaret Theater at Sidewinders. She was nominated for the Outstanding Awards in several categories, and no one was surprised when Sidewinders took home the title.
We're also raising money for the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom. The NCSF fights for sexual freedom and privacy rights for all adults who engage in safe, sane and consensual behavior from pantsless roughhousing to high-fiving your spouse's lover. They're the only national advocacy organization whose exclusive goal it is to keep laws out of your bedroom, and the Alibi has been helping the local community raise money for longer than your MC has been a board member. We're happy to step up and make the NCSF part of Alibi Fetish Events; we all think it's pretty cool that they're fighting to make sure we can keep flying our freak flags. We'll have wares from our incredible vendors to raffle off
, and will be accepting donations, all of which go right to the NCSF. (Check out their website, the Alibi's Fetish Formal got a feature in the last newsletter!)
Get your tickets now, RSVP on Facebook and Fetlife (and invite your friends), and don't forget that you can bring your cameras to this one. The #alibifetishevents hashtag will be flying about the social media airspace.
Kinky is (Officially) Not a Diagnosis
The DSM Revision
Getting an update in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is a big deal, particularly when it's the type of update that officially means that what you do is no longer considered medically problematic. This happened in the 70s in regard to homosexuality, and earlier this month it's happened for kinky people.
Here's the article from the Center for Sex and Culture and here is the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom's release. Another victory for personal freedom? Something to celebrate.
