If there is anything in life that's unavoidable, it's change. One moment you're traveling along a well-worn path, only to find out the path now has more branch paths, and it turns out those new paths branch out yet again. Or, a path might become a dead end because what was best for that path before isn't best for it now. So, you take another path. Life is unique each moment and as time passes we adapt and recalibrate our lives and environments. New paths. One must keep up with the times or be left in the dust wondering what happened.

Friendly is a well-known national campaign with deep roots in the leather and kink communities founded by Dave Watt to help fight the stigma of HIV. Recently, the folks in Mr. Friendly reacted to what they saw as a need for a new approach. They rebranded their campaign and announced opportunities for their official representatives to be of any gender or orientation. Watt said this about the change. One aspect of our mission is to ensure that this program speaks, without limitations, to our society's expanding understanding of gender. It is for this reason that we have decided to drop the 'Mr' from our campaign.

We listen. We learn. We change. Goodbye 'Mr;' hello 'Team! I find that mission beautiful because, to me, stigma is a barrier that keeps us from truly connecting with others. I hope to inspire people to move away from a place of stigma and toward a more loving, friendly way of being. Good san francisco bdsm club Lady Byrd. May your year be a good one.

That club ended up being called The 15 Association, and they just celebrated their 40th anniversary with a big celebration weekend of social gatherings, play parties and a formal dinner. San francisco bdsm club was the second such club formed in the country with Chicago Hellfire Club being the first. The club's purpose is to be a social fraternal organization for men into BDSM and leather. While primarily a play club, they have always participated in the local leather community supporting education, safer BDSM, fundraising for worthy community charities, and support of other leather and BDSM clubs.

I attended the celebration weekend's opening cigar social at the SF Eagle and their annual anniversary dinner held at a local restaurant. The camaraderie and pride present at both events were palpable. Yes, I have a bias since I'm a member of this wonderful organization, but I honestly feel they represent what's best about the men's BDSM scene.

While so many leather clubs are struggling, the 15 association has figured out a good formula for success: focus on fun, play, and sex. Keep fundraising to only what's necessary. Build a sense of brotherhood and keep strife and drama to a minimum. We had over members and guests from around the world attend a weekend of activities. Everyone left with smiles on their faces. In an era when many such clubs are challenged to attract members this club's strength is a sure that our local kink scene is still alive and vibrant.
