BOLD 2014 Coming Soon!
BOLD 2014 begins this Friday in Burbank, and I am extremely excited about the event. You can read my and Lizzie's description of last year's event here. With this MDHL event forefront in my mind, I wrote about my feelings on FetLife yesterday, so I'm reposting here:
Last year at BOLD 2013 I found something I didn't even know I was looking for...men and their women who shared a common belief, lifestyle, experience and view. This camaraderie changed me in a way that I never expected, and that change--those awkenings--are what excite me most about the upcoming BOLD...a chance to experience again the awe that comes from being with people that make me feel like I am at home with others who share the same beliefs and affirmations that I do.

So this year the theme of BOLD 2014 is "Our Leather Roots." One of the exciting elements of the conference is the West Coast premiere of The Carter Johnson Leather Library, the preeminent repository and archive chronicling the history of leather. Mama Vi has curated a special collection of art, videos, books and rare documents for BOLD. It promises to be a fascinating inclusion to an already amazing event.
If you're heading to BOLD this week please let me know. I look forward to seeing you there.
