Reflections on the Leather History Conference

26 10 2011

I thought I would make it a trifecta of articles on the Conference I attended this weekend. I must say  that over all, I really enjoyed the conference. It was good to see my friends again, some of whom I haven’t seen in years. The vendors had an excellent selection of products. I missed out on buying a vest for esclave, but I am sure that who ever won it will get good use from it.

And I enjoyed visiting the library and sitting at Vi’s feet. I learned things about our history. Asked questions. Found a very odd book (on mamology of all things) in the library. I heard my elders and contemporaries (even some fresher faces too) tell stories of days past.

The only negative thing I would say is that there wasn’t enough tracks. The stories were all in sequence.  I wish that there were other “tracks” as it were, choices in who to hear.  But I guess they wanted to film it all and that make it difficult.

It is somewhat strange to see our history being recorded. We tend to be paranoid about cameras in our culture. With good reason too. Too many of us have been hurt by others that do not understand us.

But times are changing. And that does make me glad.

Too much of our history is lost.
