Panel Discussion – Mentor Time
What is Mentorship and how might it work? is often a familiar question.
As with many things within our lifestyle, mentorship parameters may vary to any individual situation. Many times, people mentor informally during general conversations at events or munches or gatherings of various kinds. Sometimes one might mentor more formally to learn a particular skill or form of play. Often times we seek out someone who might be able to assist us with a particular question or situation, this too is usually informal. More formally one might mentor with someone for a designated period of time similar to participating as an apprentice learning a trade. At times people build or develop a special bond of lifetime mentorship, someone who becomes your confidant and guide throughout your journey. Mentorship situations are for everyone regardless of which side of the slash one may live on. Mentorships may mix in many ways, sometimes Dominants mentor each other as do submissives, sometimes Dominants mentor submissives and yes there are times when submissives may mentor a Dominant. No one is above learning from each other.

For Our Mentor Room this year, there will be a sign-up board available as early as Thursday afternoon. Listed will be those who have been asked to offer a shift or two in the mentor room, along with their bio and scheduled time bio to help you choose which Mentor might be the best fit for your consultation. Space is limited so if this is something you would like to take advantage of, be sure not to procrastinate. Keep watch as more details will be forthcoming.

Block 10 -4:30pm to 6pm

Outside the Lines – Rattling Gender Constructs w/Stella
This lecture and group discussion course deals with the ever changing climate of gender and all it’s diversity. Have you ever found your self in a situation where you did not know what pro-nouns to use? Most folks get confused with terminology and are clueless on what the proper thing to say is. We will learn to use a ask first approach. What does gender means to you? Gender identity is internal. It is, simply, the gender with which you identify. It’s the word (or words) that you could use to describe yourself that simply make sense to you. Gender identity is internal, deeply-rooted, and a central part of many people’s senses of self. We will explore the diversity of gender and all it’s fluidity. We will have a interactive discussion on how folks have and are dealing with gender issues, looking at the diversity and different ways to express it.

Food for Thought – Estate Planning for Non-Traditional Families w/Stacy
We often think of wills and trust to be for the rich and the old. Florida laws have a set path for what happens to our possessions should we die without a legal written plan and the laws don’t allow for poly families and other non-traditional families. In this class I will discuss how the law expects our property to pass on and how you can plan for your family dynamic. We don’t like to think about what happens if we die. Planning for it early in life is often seen as taboo and morbid, however it doesn’t always have to be morbid and in this class, I want to make the discussions about wills as normal as discussing what is for dinner.
