About this Event

Kink Out is an event series organized by a revolving team of artists, organizers, and producers that celebrates and builds alliances between New York City’s kink/leather, and sex worker communities. Though Kink Out’s programs take many forms, their activities are continually incited by art, conversation, and activism.

For decades, kink/leather and sex worker communities have been forced to seek refuge underground and create havens for themselves out of the public eye, often in nightclubs or bars. Yet even these safer spaces remained under threat of police raids and public harassment, as well as a lack of acceptance in mainstream culture, which prompted these communities to embrace the virtual realm of the internet as a place to network, build alliances, and practice safely. In light of recent legislation that places these online communities at risk, safe virtual and physical spaces are even more urgently needed.

Over the course of a six-week residency, members of the kink/leather and sex worker communities will imagine ways to create, reclaim, and transform the virtual and physical spaces they occupy, using the VW Dome as a hub for discussions, workshops, and organizing, as well as public events.

The residency culminates in Kink Out: SPACES, a large-scale program that features performances, screenings, and immersive presentations from local BDSM practitioners, as well as discussions on safe practices, healing, and activism—all of which center the creativity, courage, and cultural significance of the city’s kink/leather and sex worker communities.
