Who’s Your Daddy? A panel discussion on parenting while kinky
A Foundations Class

Cost: Suggested donation of $10-$15

Dress code: Whatever makes you feel comfortable. Street wear before entering

Doors open 6:30-7 sharp, class starts promptly at 7:00

Class Description:
Parenting is an adventure for anyone, but parents in the kink and leather community experience some unique challenges - and unique benefits - related to integrating their lives as parents with their lives as members of a very adult-oriented community.

In this panel discussion we will explore the experience of parenting as a kinkster - from the joy of including chosen leather family in a child’s life to the stress of staying closeted for fear of losing custody, and everything in between. Panelists include current and former Headmasters of Foundations, Nokoi and Marath Damane; former LeatherQuest Headmaster Beth Downey and her wife Bear; current Journey student Bone, and the BDSM writer and educator Lydia Laurenson (aka Clarisse Thorn), who has recently begun writing under her given name with a focus on alternative parenting.

Everyone is welcome to attend and participate, whether you’re a parent or not!
