Beyond Boxes

Time & Date

TBD

Labels can be an important part of exploring and claiming components of a kinky identity. But the same check boxes that can validate can also feel limiting if used as a fetish delivery system. When there is a chance of being type-cast, pigeon-holed or 'boxed' into a specific Role, Race, Gender Expression, Age or Body Type there are several challenges. This is a conversation for kinksters in marginalized groups or identifying on a particular side of the D/S dynamic to discuss what they face when seeking play or relationships so that we feel recognized and valued as an individual and not a label.
