September Podcast – Community Memory and a Thin Veil

aidsquilt_squareThough Halloween is a month and a half away, Lee just decorated for the season. It’s time to pause this time of year to reflect on the history of the kink community through the lens of those who have passed away, and our community history. From AIDS to accidents to time that has elapsed, we remember those who have gone before, clearing the way for folks to dress up in sexy dominatrix costumes during this holiday season. With sweet and sad stories alike, he dares you to take up the challenge of not forgetting where the current kink communities came from.
