    Kinky October

    Ever want to go and meet some kinky people without having to don fetish wear and know the secret password? This month the local BDSM community brings you several chances to do just that. There’s a delicious social, and the state’s biggest Kink/Leather/Fetish event, all in the next two weeks, not to mention numerous other events. Here are some details on the social and the convention.


    Soup Social-
    It’s exactly what it sounds like. Join New Mexico: the Next Generation (NM:TNG) for a social event that involves several varieties of delicious soup.* While TNG’s regular meetings have a limited age requirement, they hold regular socials that are welcome to any adult, eighteen years or older, and this is one of them. Bring $5, your ID and the carb of your choice (bread, crackers, whatever rocks your soup carafe) to the Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice (at 202 Harvard Dr SE) between 5-8pm this Saturday 10/9/10 and see what all the fuss is about.
    *Oh, and don’t worry if you have dietary restrictions, there will be options for just about everyone. If you only eat raw food or have some other strict diet bring yourself some of what is good for you and/or just enjoy the company.


    Rio Grande Leather Weekend
    If you’re in for a weekend of education, socialization, entertainment and everything you would expect from a conference and a more, head over to the Sandia Courtyard (off I-40 Exit 165, North on Eubank) October 14th for BDSM 101 at 7pm (that’s free by the way, just bring your ID) and then that peaks your interest, come back Friday-Sunday for a full weekend. There’s a opening ceremony, an Exploritorium, a Cigar and Boots Party- and that’s just Friday. Saturday starts early with a Morning Gathering, Workshops with presenters from all over the country teaching on everything from relationships to kinky sign language to spanking and even tea service. The evening is centered around Albuquerque Shines, a variety show featuring performers from as many aspects of the community as they can fit into the time slot. You can buy individual tickets for Shines- the featured performers are Mr. and Ms. Rio Grande Leather 2010 who are stepping down from their local titles but will continue on in their international roles. Tyler McCormick is our current International Mr. Leather (IML 2010) and Jayson Da Boi is International Ms. Bootblack (IMsBB 2010). It’s the first time that New Mexico has been home to two current international titleholders. The International title family is very well represented at Rio Grande this year, International Ms. Leather Mollena Williams from San Francisco will also be in attendance, along with Tim Starkey the current International Mr. Bootblack from Boston. The lineup also includes former Olympus Leather titleholders, and a hand full of past IMsL’s and IML’s. What does that mean for attendees? It means you have a star studded group of people to rub elbows with- and I haven’t even mentioned everyone else.
    This is the 6th year of Rio Grande Leather, and this year’s theme “Paths of Fire” guarantees (yes, we’re going there) a very hot weekend. Come out and be surprised by at the versatility of this very diverse community. The curious, the committed, those who haven’t ever ventured out past their bedrooms and those who have been around for decades- all are welcome. You can get more information and register at RGL’s website. It’s a great way to see what all the fuss is about- come as you are or wear that outfit you keep telling your friends is “just for Halloween.”
