Southern Decadence, a world-famous LGBT event, was slated to start August 31st. According to an evangelical Christian group that regularly demonstrates at LGBT events, "Hurricane Katrina has put an end to the annual celebration of sin." (http://www.repentamerica.com/pr_hurricanekatrina.html)
 
"NCSF is appalled that this religious political extremist group is using a national tragedy to further their own goals," says Susan Wright, NCSF Spokesperson. "Now is the time for everyone to join together in sympathy and support for our Southern brothers and sisters."
 
Many local leather organizations including Mr. and Ms. Louisiana Leather base their groups' events around Southern Decadence. (http://www.nola.com/festivals/southerndecadence.ssf) Other events such as French Connection's N'awlins in November, one of the country's finest swing lifestyle conventions held every November, may also be affected by this tragic storm.
 
NCSF urges you to extend a helping hand to all people in the Southern states who have lost their homes, livelihoods and loved ones by sending a donation to the Red Cross Relief Fund. (https://www.redcross.org/donate/donation-form.asp)

About Consent Counts

NCSF is leading a major national campaign—Consent Counts—to change the laws and police practices that our communities now endure, and to establish that consent is available as a defense in criminal BDSM prosecutions.

  • BDSM is prosecuted as assault in the U.S., even when it is consensual.
  • No state or appellate court has allowed consent as a defense to assault in BDSM cases.
  • Consent Counts is a nationwide project to decriminalize consensual BDSM.
 
Program Goals:
Consent Counts
is a nationwide project to decriminalize consensual BDSM through education, advocacy, legal actions and lobbying.
