The purpose of this event is to put Austin on the Kink Map. With that in mind, one of our primary goals is to be inclusive. We expect to have people from all over the world with the most varied and diverse backgrounds possible attending. As such, we are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, physical appearance, body size, lack of kink knowledge, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, religion (or lack thereof) and other personal conditions and choices.
We invite all those who participate in our events to help us create safe and positive experiences for everyone.
Unacceptable behaviors include: intimidating, harassing, abusive, discriminatory, intentional misgendering, derogatory or demeaning speech or actions by any participant in our community online, at all related events and in one-on-one communications carried out in the context of community business. Community event venues may be shared with members of the public; please be respectful to all patrons of these locations.
Consequences of Unacceptable Behavior
