Some of you may remember from last year that my kick-ass colleague Jacqueline St-Urbain and I organized Canada’s only weekend event for leatherdykes and trans people – An Unholy Harvest. It was the first of its kind in well over a decade, and it was a raging success. Well, we decided to do it all over again this year. Needless to say I’m already beyond excited! It’s taking place on Thanksgiving weekend (October 10-12) in Ottawa.
Please spread the good news. We really want this to be an event that draws Canadians from all over the country, and so we’re especially hoping to bring in more people from the Maritimes, the Prairies and BC – so if any of you readers know kinky dykes and transfolk from those provinces, please poke them until they sign up! Even better if they want to present a workshop.
The full announcement is below. The early-bird registration deadline is September 5. Come join the fun!
AN UNHOLY HARVEST
Shine your leathers and pack your toybags… An Unholy Harvest is back in 2008!
Be a part of Canada’s only weekend for leatherdykes and transfolk! People have been talking about last year’s sold-out and highly successful event since the minute they got home. If you missed it, you’ve probably been kicking yourself… and if you were there, you’ve doubtless been anticipating the next one!
Join us in Ottawa this coming Thanksgiving weekend, October 10-12, 2008.
Get ready for a weekend packed with kink! You can expect…
· A fabulous kinky auction to get your juices flowing
· A full menu of BDSM and kink workshops, both hands-on and theoretical, with skilled presenters from Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and elsewhere in Canada
· Three play parties in a fully equipped dungeon
· Film screenings
· Plus some extra surprises this year… stay tuned!
On top of all that, we’re raising our registration cap to make space for more hotties to attend in 2008. We want you to come, and we want your friends to come with you! But remember, spaces are still limited and the price is right. Like last year, we fully expect to sell out. Don’t wait! Register now to make sure you get in on the action!
For more info and to register, visit http://www.unholyharvest.ca. An Unholy Harvest is open to women and trans people who respect and honour a women’s play space.
Your friendly coordinatrixes,
Jacqueline St-Urbain and Andrea Zanin
Call for presenters
