• Southeastern Premiere!
    Friday night, 9:30pm

    SELF is excited to announce that we have been selected for the southeastern premiere of the award-winning film, By the People: 25 Years of Community Archiving at the Leather Archives and Museum. This documentary won the Best Documentary Short award at the recent Cinekink 2017 film festival in New York City, NY. 

    It's a tantalizing look at 25 years of archiving history, blazing a trail, and an archive that will serve the world for decades to come. There are sections of the film which speak specifically to southeastern history. It's an incredible opportunity.Mark your calendars now! We'll show the film directly after Friday evening's show.
    Step inside of LA&M. Step inside of kink & leather.

Thank you for being you...

You may have heard that we have changed our date.  We appreciate how many of you have reached out to us while we were figuring out what comes next when our hotel decided to not honor their contract.  We have figured out what comes next and it's a date change. We have moved one week earlier than our original date.  We are June 15-18, 2017.  

We have a new hotel that has been renovated! It's shiny, new, comes with frigs in every room and free wifi.  Make your reservations and help SELF fill it's room block! Rooms are moving fast- get yours now!

We appreciate your support in taking hotel rooms and buying a social package! These are the items that allow us to afford adequate programming space.  If you already have a basic package, an upgrade is still available.  With it comes great food, 2 fabulous keynote speeches and all the fun and laughter!

We have added a long list of delicious treats to Thursday's opening ceremony! Don't miss a fabulous show and fabulous food that we have added for everyone!

We have a lot of changes to make and appreciate your patience while we change everything over. Thank you!

Where individuality is valued. Where education is free-flowing. Where fun is abundant.

We're mixing it up and we invite you to do the same.  


What is mixology? Mixology is our theme for this year because we are the place where all facets of our community come together and generate something more than their individual pieces. We are a meeting place, a connection, a mingling spot. We are a place of joy, learning, creation, love, and compassion. We give you a place to forge and strengthen the community: at home, in the region, and across the nation. We are GLBTQ, allies, alternative relations, and people pursuing free expression of our identities.

Join us this year and be part of this amazing mixology.
