Ms. Cenna and Lee Harrington present Topping from the Bottom? Yes, Please! From 6-8pm PDT. Fetlife Facebook Meetup Do you usually take the lead in life, your relationship, or the bedroom but there are activities you like to receive or bottom to? Are you a Dominant and are concerned that receiving these activities will make your partner (or the community) think of you differently? Do you tend to submit or bottom, but want to provide delight for your partner and don't know how? You are not alone! Being tied up and getting flogged, requesting to be used in the bedroom, or getting face-fucked while kneeling does NOT make a person any less of a Dominant, nor does it have to switch a power exchange dynamic. Through discussing our fears and sharing tips and tricks (and trying a few), we will discover ways to help us all top from the bottom (and bottom from the top), have more confidence doing so, and acknowledge the vulnerability it takes to share these desires in the first place. Advanced ticketing required through Brown Paper Tickets.

The BlackOut Coalition is leading an economic Blackout Day all day. They have asked Black folx to not spend money on this day, and if spending is absolutely required, to spend money at Black owned businesses only. To be accomplices in the dismantling of white supremacy we are taking part in this call to action and encourage everyone to take part as well. This action is about utilizing the economic power of Black folx for Black liberation. Find out more at the links above.

Magick: Thaumaturgy in Theory and Practice with Jarys is from 6-8pm PDT. Fetlife Facebook The practice of Magic(k) has been analyzed by practitioners often and by outside scholars rarely, but how do you go about understanding it yourself? Are you prepared to consider that the nature of magic might make the answer acutely subjective and personal? Will you consider magic from one cultural perspective, with a standardized set of criteria, and an end goal in mind? Would an author approach the subject as a practitioner would? and what historical details might be considered? The scope of this class is to introduce the student to the concept's historical background, and a general survey of practices so that they might answer these questions for themselves. The development of an understanding of Magic both as a variety of paradigms and a personal path will be outlined, as well as various fantasy author's methods in creating magical systems. Finally, the class will offer an example schema by which magic could be understood, with prompts to allow the students to begin wording a lens of their own creation. Whether researching for a writing project or starting an occult study, this class is designed as an introduction to magic(k)al workings, drawing from fictional, historic, cultural, and modern sources. Taught by a professional educator, this class includes a multimedia lecture, Q&A, as well as handouts and reading lists. Advanced ticketing required through Brown Paper Tickets.
