This festival is for you if: You are a Person of Color or an Ally. You desire freedom, sexually, mentally, physically, and spiritually. You love who you love (yes, all love is valid here, Kink family, Spiritual Love, LGTBQIA) and are ready to embrace who you are. You are ready to learn, love and hold space for others to do the same. You are open to nudity and sexual expression.
What is the cost of the festival?
Festival Passes range from $100-300 depending on when you purchase them. You can see prices here. Sponsorship and vendor packages are also available, by clicking here.
Why is it so expensive?
Goddesses and allies, freedom ain't free. We need more of us people of color working towards freedom, and ESPECIALLY sexual freedom. I spent a lot of time in the non-profit industrial complex and let me tell you we are paying for the wrong shit. Every instructor here is being paid for their time. We are doing everything possible to ensure an environment that is conducive to you experiencing freedom, so that you can CRAVE IT. We are recruiting healers that can care for you, hiring chefs that offer you nurturing, paying for security so that you are PHYSICALLY safe, as well as renting a space that is free of hate, judgment and negative outside influences. Any detail that is missed will be combed over so that next time, it is highlighted that we missed it. This is for us. Let's stop paying for the wrong shit. This is the right shit. That, I promise you.
What is included in the price of the pass?
