The next Long Island Leather N Roses meeting will be tomorrow night, and I’m thinking it will be a pretty lively event as it’s going to be an “Open Forum Fishbowl,” or, as the Fetlife event page describes it, a “Meeting of the Minds.” The panel is ready to answer any question about the BDSM lifestyle. Here’s more from the event description:
Everyone has a question they want to ask, and many have answers to share. Sometimes we don’t have the opportunity to exchange these ideas. This is the time to share those questions and answers, as LILNR presents our Open Forum Fish Bowl Q & A Session moderated by Sir Richard , Wyzasswench, Mistress Sopia, and Adam/Allison.
This is NOT a panel discussion by these four moderators. Instead this is an open forum to exchange ideas, opinions, and knowledge of the questions brought to the floor. Everyone who wishes to participate will be able to ask, answer, or contribute to the discussion.
The questions will be drawn from posted questions on the LILNR list on Fetlife or Yahoo. Also, questions may be sent to the LILNR Coordinatiors, or privately to any of the moderators. Additionally, questions that arise during the group meeting will be used, as time permits.
The moderators also welcome answers from the floor.
This will be my first time attending one of these “fishbowl” events. Here’s how Wikipedia describes them, but as far as the BDSM scene goes, I understand that Jay Wiseman had a lot to do with starting this type of meeting. (Correct me if that’s wrong).
Hope many in the New York area can attend.
