Guy Baldwin: Leather Community Q&A
Wednesday, March 27, 2019 @ 8:30 PM

Avatar proudly presents Guy Baldwin, M.S., a Los Angeles based psychotherapist, BDSM educator, author and activist. He has worked in private practice predominantly with kinky people of all orientations since the early 1980's.

For 35 years, he criss-crossed the U.S. to present a wide array of BDSM related classes. Baldwin, a former International Mr. Leather and Mr. National Leather Association, was also inducted into The Leather Hall of Fame in recognition of his decades of service to our world. His books, Ties That Bind (1993) and SlaveCraft (2002) continue to be used as required reading in courses for kink-minded people across the country. (Wikipedia and YouTube have lots more info about him.)

It's a 90-minute Q&A, so bring questions and let's pick his brain together!

Leather and Race Community Forum
Sunday, April 7, 2019 @ 4:00 PM
Location: MCC Church

Avatar Los Angeles presents this Community Forum in association with Onyx SoCal/Southwest and the Payasos.

As the National Day of Racial Healing on April 7 was "created to celebrate our common humanity and take collective action toward a more just and equitable world," it seems the perfect day for this special event from Avatar Club Los Angeles.

In fulfilling our mission to "provide leadership in education, health and safety by facilitating strategic collaborations" we will be joining Onyx SoCal/Southwest and the Payasos in a dialogue addressing race relations within our scene and potential next steps for collective action.
