Upcoming Events

As always, check the FMSD monthly calendar-at-a-glance, which contains news about ALL known upcoming events.


RECENT ARTICLES



Check Presentations, January 2013. Our own Aaron, Glitz and Anthony present 
checks totaling $6,899.00 to the two charities that benefitted from the HUGE fundraiser Aaron and his superb team hosted at the Center on Sunday, December 2, 2012.

Lisa Ling's 'Our America' Explores BDSM In 'Fifty Shades Of Kink' - poor dear: she is so turned-on, but she could never admit it on national television. Too many people would pour shame upon her for being honest.



TRAILER: Interior. Leather Bar. Back in November 2011, a whole bunch of us gathered at the North Park Birch Theater to watch Al Pacino in the classic gay leatherman-as-bad-guy movie CRUISING. This new movie by James Franco explores what actually happened during the forty minutes of film that were cut and lost forever.



SEX SEX SEX SEX SEX SEX

Starting on Wednesday, January 30th, the Men's Discussions will be ALL ABOUT SEX, in an ongoing series. As a subculture, we are still really messed-up on the topic. We're still carrying around shame and guilt from our upbringings and the culture around us, fear of intimacy, and even pressure from our peers to make us stick to the standard narrative. We have been the "sexual outlaws" for too long. The Internet has shown us that we are not alone, no matter WHAT jingles our jangles.


Isn't it way past time that we finally have this discussion and move forward?


So, we will be going very deep, honest and exposed. We will be making agreements beforehand to keep the discussions private, safe and supportive. We will peel back and reveal the secrets that we are afraid to tell our closest friends and loved ones. And, we will find out how much we all have in common as sexual creatures. The intent is to relax and be happier from this point onward, as a result of letting go of the shame.


Nobody will be allowed to "sit on the sidelines" during this session series. If you're there, YOU WILL SHARE. The intent is to build even more trust and true friendships, and we can't do that as a team of brothers if a few people are committed to holding back. The benefit will be that we can finally let go of our old baggage, among committed listeners and trusted friends. This can be the best thing to ever happen to our local Tribe.  Let's go for it!



TRUE DEDICATION TO FMSD


I never saw this coming. Our brother David got tired of shifting his FMSD lapel pin from garment to garment, so he just had the design tattooed onto his arm permanently!


UPCOMING EVENTS



Wednesday, January 23, 7PM: Men's Discussion - Topic: Spirit Guided Play, Presented by Tommy Starchild, who says:


Spirit and Spirituality mean many things to many people, combining Leather with Spirituality is not something new. Leather play touches on the orgasmic spiritual connection with yourself, others, and unseen forces outside ourselves. Sometimes in our day to day we get rubbed the wrong way. Is it really the wrong way, or is it the Spiritual nudge we need to grow? Why am I called left or right brained, and what does that mean exactly? Is my deeper self integrated or influenced by my physical and social self? How can I get me some of the incredible hot sex? Spirit Guided Play will take a look and these and other questions about the crossroads of leather play and spirituality.


This weekend is about geared-up fun!

Friday, January 25, 7-11PM: Graphite Social: A Benefit for the Museum of the Living Artist. Our crew is being courted more and more by the arts community, such as with last week's Project 50 Photo Shoot (it was a blast - pictures and story coming up), and the FMSD Community Gear Shoot we had in September. This event is not so much AIMED at us, but we are warmly invited to add some personal style and flavor among appreciative, creative people while artists draw nude models, and performers entertain.
