California Trip Review
“...and California dreamin’ is becoming a reality.”
So I'm finally getting a chance to tell you about my trip and experiences in California, starting with IMsL. I'll have to be honest here, I was a little bit apprehensive about attending a primarily women's event, because I didn't want to interfere in their space. However, being asked to perform the tally for the contest, I found myself in a position to where I had to attend, and I'm so glad that I did! The first thing that I noticed was how tight, organized and well-oiled the operation was. There were safeguards in place to enforce the integrity of the contest as well as one of the most well planned events I've ever had the privilege of attending. No offense other events, but these folks can run a show! I was astounded at these incredible women! I have not felt that kind of energy ever before at an event and I was just floored by the caliber of people that I was in the company of. I saw one particular amazon who was obviously sudden death in both hands and I felt like I had to meet her. Once I began talking with her and learned about her previous military experience etc. it made sense why I got the impression that I did.
This place was a candy land for slave feyrie of course. She got to get a chance to be in the bootblack chair with International Bootblack Dara! I really enjoyed watching her have fun throughout the weekend.
I got a T-shirt which says “Man of IMsL” and it has become one of my favorites. You’ll see me wearing it often. We hear a lot of talk about “Hey guys it’s okay to come to IMsL.” – let me tell you, you'll enjoy the s*** out of it!
P.S.: Go Gang Bang Girls!
There are so many stories to tell about my experience that it would take a very long time and I expect the reader would give up after a certain amount. So let me tell you that I very much enjoyed meeting sacred whore Nina Hartley, whom I was able to congratulate on an excellent speech and since she is a slave, was able to tell her "Well done slave!”. I also told her how much I enjoyed our “relationship” during my youth in the 80s - and that I had washed my hands since then. I also thanked her for doing the Work, but that was a very private moment that I won’t relate in detail here.
I met someone whom I am convinced trained as a Bene Gesserit and was able to use neuro-enticement, instant hypnosis and other skills to imprint upon me the answer to a question that I asked her, I'm still processing the answer that she gave even though it was a short one. Sorry to keep things such a mystery.
We decided that it would be less expensive to simply stay in California with a friend, rather than fly back and again back to California for Leather H.E.A.T.. During the week we attended a slave circle hosted by our friend who put us up. We got to have lunch with Master Morris, International Master 2013. Not only did he feed us an excellent lunch, he fed our souls with art and music as he showed us his watercolors and played Chopin for us on a beautiful antique piano.
We also got to see Laura Antoniou at the Kink.com armory in San Francisco.
Friday we spent this drive down the Pacific Coast Highway which I had never seen before and it was beautiful.
Arriving in Los Angeles at Leather H.E.A.T., I was so happy to be among so many friends. This wasn’t an event where we were presenting or performing any other functions, so it was a great time just enjoy having personal moments with so many of the attendees. Master George and slave bren’s maiden voyage was executed with style! I loved Master George’s speech about how each of our communities are like ships and we stay on them and ask to come aboard other’s sometimes, but when a threat exists, we will come to the aid of the other boats. For the past several years Master George and I have been passing in the hall and shaking hands looking at each other with a knowing nod that we're on our way to somewhere, “got to go” smiling leave. It was so wonderful to finally have a talk with him at length about things. I also got a chance to visit with slave who is always a delight. As I told Master George after the event, there was no way that you could tell that this was their first event. That it was definitely high-quality and rivalled other national events. I highly recommend it to anyone who is able to attend next year.
Next: IML! And SELF is coming up sooner than we realize - we’re going to have a blast!
2015 started out with a bang. We attended SouthWest Leatherfest with SELF family and had an amazing time. In February, we presented The Three Pillars of M/s class at The Warehouse in Greenville, SC, then slave feyrie taught two classes at Southern Bash, a womyn's event in Atlanta. In March, we journied to Dallas, Texas, where we represented the SouthEast in the International Master and slave at South Plains Leatherfest. We are excited and honored to have been awarded the title of International Master and slave, and enjoyed all the support we got from our SELF family. Our next trip will be to International Ms Leather in San Jose, California, where we will be tallymasters for the contest! After that we are finalizing plans for several events. We are also looking forward to June and the 20th anniversary of SouthEast Leatherfest.
We kicked off our title year close to home - representing the SouthEast LeatherFest family at the Tarheel Leather Club Run in July. We threw a great Bloody Marys and Mimosas cocktail party with Slave Pat and Blackjack. We helped with the Tarheel formal tea and slave feyrie got to give a very short tea class. We enjoyed spending time with the Tarheels, and are especially grateful for their great dungeon spaces where we got to play!
August saw our journey to Great Lakes Leather Alliance in Indianapolis. We loved meeting new friends, hanging out with the bootblacks and puppies, and enjoying the contest. We hope all of our GLLA friends will come visit us the 3rd weekend in June so we can show them as much fun as they showed us!!!
Master/slave Conference outside of Washington DC was one of the many highlights of our year. We got to spend times with M/s people from all over North America - and some from other countries! We enjoyed volunteering for Cowboy Jen's security team, shopping with some great Vendors, enjoying the formal leather dinner, listening to great speakers, going to all the M/s contest events, and attending classes given by some of the top M/s presenters in the nation. We had an amazing time with our SouthEast LeatherFest family and with friends and loved ones from near and far.
Our next stop was back to Atlanta for the International Mr and Ms Transgender Contest. We got to know both contestants and were truly impressed by the caliber of these title holders and the goals they pursue. We are honored to support them in spreading awareness for issues faced by trans men and women both locally and all over the world. Several of the SouthEast LeatherFest family were in attendance or working the event
October saw the changing of the leaves and a trip to the mountains of Waynesville NC and Master Mustang and slave Filly's group, SMAK. We gave an afternoon tea and a tea class. We had a wonderful time sharing our passion with our friends and SELF family in Waynesboro.
Chicago or Bust! The SouthEast LeatherFest family got to travel to Chicago to support SELF's own Boy Dave as he ran for American Leather Boy. We had an amazing time with some incredible people. We visited the leather archives and museum and got to see and touch our history. slave feyrie got to attend the Leatherwomen's dinner, along with our producer, Catherine Gross, SELF family members and her Appalachian Women of Leather sisters. It was inspiring to see the heart and sense of brotherhood of men and women of leather from around the country.
Leather History Conference was a great experience. We got to listen to Leather men and women tell the stories of their personal journeys. Slave feyrie's highlight was helping setup and tear down the dungeon spaces. Master Kevin enjoyed one-on-one conversations at breakfast with all his friends.
November and December gave us the opportunity to teach, teach, teach! MAsT : Richmond hosted us and we gave the extended version of our Signposts from the Edge Class. We spent the weekend with them, and even visited Fallout, a new fetish club where SELF's own Kitten Khaous was boot blacking.
We rang in December with a visit to Nashville, where did 4 presentations in one day! What a great opportunity for us to hone our skills and share with others! We are so grateful to Grand Mistress Kay and Lord Mercury for hosting us. We presented our Pillers of M/s Relationships class at MAsT : Nashville, our Service Posituons for Every Body class at the Mark, and did a podcast for Woody and the Beast at KinkyCast. Grand Mistress Kay hosted an amazing tea god us and we got to do a tea class too!
What an amazing year we've had so far! We can't wait to see what the New Year brings, as we continue our journey towards South Plains in March and beyond!
