Palm Springs Pride Request for San Diegans

A Special Request

From Cris Campbell:

Hey Everyone,

Please join me the weekend of November 2-3 to celebrate Palm Springs Pride! Our brothers and sisters in the Desert have invited us to participate in the festival's "Fetish in the Outfield", the Pride parade contingent, and guest lecturers and demonstrators during the festival.

Both days activities begin at 11AM and end at 6PM. The parade itself starts at 10AM on Sunday. We will be marching with members of DFA, The Bears of Coachella Valley, PSLOD, Desire, The Barracks, and of course FMSD.

Also, there are other Pride events that will be happening over the weekend that you might like to attend. For a list please go to

We are also coming up with a list of people in Palm Springs that can host out of town guest. If anyone wants to do a demo or workshop lets us know as soon as possible, since we are working on a detailed schedule this year.

Our San Diego brother, Cris Campbell (cris.campbell76 AT is working with DFA's Jim Neff to coordinate marchers, workshop leaders and demonstrators. Please let him know ASAP if you want to be a part of this community effort!

Last year, a good number of San Diegans showed up to contribute active support, and now the invitation is going out to many others who would like to join in. Plan to take a road trip with your fetish family to the beautiful Desert during the best time of the year. We have friends out there that can host those that would prefer not to get a hotel room - please reach out to Jim ( if you are interested in having being hosted.

This is the kickoff of a MUCH larger effort to build connections between the different cities during Pride in 2014 and beyond. The goal is to build HUGE kink/Fetish contingents in every major Southern California city. This will increase our visibility in a very positive way. Times have changed. We are no longer the shameful sub-sub-culture, and the general public is showing greater interest in knowing and understanding us. It's time to celebrate in a BIG way!
Thank you,
