Screwup presents: Bending the Bottom: gender flex in BDSM play
Friday, January 9th, 2009 from 7:00 to 9:30 PM Femina Potens, 2199 Market Street (at Sanchez Street), San Francisco
Does your gender presentation vary by the roles that you play in BDSM?
Are you a boy top and and a fierce femme bottom?
Have you ever surprised yourself or others with a gendered bottom identity?
Do you ever feel drawn to play in gender(s) outside of your usual comfort zones?
Then this is the Screwup for you!
Timnah will be presenting about playing with bottom spaces, and how that can intersect with gender expectations, perceptions, and presentations. Leading with her own experiences of playing in different bottom spaces - gendered and not - Timnah will facilitate a discussion about bottoming and gender expression.
If time allows, we may expand the discussion to include how switches and tops experience this as well. Discussion is open to everyone open to learning and sharing on these topics.
screwup is for trans people, genderqueers, and our friends. This event is open to all genders and will be held at Femina Potens gallery. Folks sometimes go out for coffee or food afterwards, so come prepared...
Femina Potens is wheelchair accessible, however the single gender-neutral bathroom is not. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause, and are looking for an accessible restroom in the vicinity.
