* Line-up subject to change
❤ Jeffrey Hayes is a drama therapist and MFT-Trainee at Liberation Institute. His areas of special interest include directing therapeutic theatre performances and harnessing the healing power of tabletop roleplaying games. He collects life experiences the same way some people collect comic books (which, coincidentally, he also collects) and believes creating and sharing stories is one of the most beautiful things humans can do
❤ Shilo McCabe is a queer, sex-positive feminist photographer and crafter. She works in her own unique style of documentary photography and is honored to serve as the Photo Team Lead for International Ms. Leather/International Ms. Bootblack. She has served on the board of LVA: Lesbians in the Visual Arts and was a Project Photographer for the Bay Area Women of Color Photo Project. Her art has been shown at many exhibitions across the country, and has been included in The Kinsey Institute Gallery's permanent collection as well as many print publications. A fierce advocate for visibility and community building, Shilo combines her DIY aesthetic with clever functionality to design creative accessories – most notably her femme flagging flowers – through her KinkyCraft studio. Her work can be viewed at ShiloMcCabe.com and TheSexPositivePhotoProject.com
❤ Katherine Thomas grew up with an innate interest in kink that started at the age of 4, when she wasn't quite sure why tying up my barbie dolls would make her feel really tingly. She moved to the Bay Area after growing up in an oppressively conservative Midwest city. But if she's completely honest with herself, a huge deciding factor of moving to the Bay Area was that Kink.com was based here. After a particularly horrible breakup with yet another vanilla guy, she finally decided to start acting on realizing some of the kink fantasies she'd had her whole life...Her first adventure was a naive foray into Craigslist Casual Encounters, and like everything in her life, found herself in the deep end right off the bat, and is lucky to have gotten out of it unscathed.
❤ Sexual Folklorist Dixie De La Tour founded Bawdy Storytelling, the Nation’s original sex and storytelling series almost 10 years ago (Bawdy is a multi-city live storytelling event welcomes true stories from any and all communities - LGBTQIA, kink, polyamory, swingers, vanilla, and many more) and now, she's created her brand new storytelling series, Bona Fide Storytelling. Dixie has been lauded by Master Storyteller Mike Daisey as a "masterful emcee, and her show is everything that works for storytelling—she creates a warm, safe space in which stories can bloom with dark hilarity, salacious textures, and moments of deep connection.” Dixie has hosted and curated Bawdy Storytelling events in many US cities, and she works with each storyteller, crafting and curating, to make sure that each evening of storytelling is a cohesive whole. She also leads storytelling workshops where would be storytellers can hone their craft. Dixie is really excited to create something new in the world of story - it's her passion. Is there anything more inspirational than watching someone live their passion?! More info on Dixie & Bawdy at www.BawdyStorytelling.com
❤ Rachel Lark is a singer/songwriter who sings about Sex, Drugs, heartbreak, and Messy Apartments. An up-and-coming San Francisco artist with a die-hard cult following, Rachel Lark has quickly become the musical muse of the sex-positive revolution. Her music has been featured on The Savage Lovecast, and she performs frequently San Francisco counterculture haunts like Bawdy Storytelling and Tourette's Without Regrets.Her music is always lyrically based with a strong foundation of passionate songwriting, while the timbres vary depending on the performance. Sometimes she's bantering with the crowd over some ukulele plucking, and at other times she'll be behind her laptop and synthesizers creating dance beats to accompany her layered vocal harmonies. In 2014 she released her debut EP, "I Wouldn't Worry" followed by her first full-length album, "Lark After Dark," and her Christmas album "Hung For The Holidays." In 2015 she successfully funded a music video and new album through a Kickstarter campaign and has just released both her new album, "Vagenius" and her new music video for the song Warm, Bloody, and Tender. Find her music (and videos) at RachelLark.com
