An apology... you are not cattle, or a quota

by SF BASiL on October 29, 2014 46 Comments

I want to offer an apology to the sober and leather communities. As owner and producer of the SF Sober Leather Contest and SF Bay Area Sober in Leather -SF BASIL I have been working hard gearing up for the SF Sober Leather 2015 Contest and I keep saying I need contestants, or need this or that. I can't speak for other contests but for me you aren't cattle, or some self perceived quota that needs to be filled. Up to this point I haven't given anyone a reason why to run. I am honored by those who have considered and said no, by those that said yes, and those that haven chosen to work on their sobriety, or wants to wait a year. We have a huge Leather title and pageantry circuit and many contests individuals can easily find a fit in. I started this contest ...

Hello [person name removed]

I am Lady Katerina the owner of the SF Sober Leather contest. One of the great things about this contest is that is open to people from all backgrounds and levels in the BDSM community.

Last year our title holder Jay was someone who was relatively new. He knew he was a kinkster, but he did not know where he fit it. I watched him find his Leather voice over the ...

Hello I am Katerina du Lac aka Lady Katerina - Phoenix Rising, I am the owner of the SF Sober Leather Contests. We are in year two of the contests, this year I have been told from PR points of view that I need to keep things completely on a positive note. However, for me keeping things on a positive note is actually keeping things real, showing integrity in all that we do. SF Sober Leather Contest and the SF Bay Area Sober in Leather -SF BASIL was started to provide a place and home to those who battled addiction and are trying to live a life that allows an union between their sober lives and their leather/kink lives.

I was privileged and honored by questions posed to me by individuals who I not only respect and honored but consisered my Elders. When I started this, I started planning this ...
