Kinksters, here is my latest Bay Area Reporter BARtab leather/kink column and this issue it's about the "old guard" mythology. Our scene has a number of issues to deal with and I believe many of those issues arise from the misguided notion that the old guard was something that it was not. Thanks to Guy Baldwin for the brilliance of his recently delivered speech on the topic and to Laura Antoniou for her also brilliant and humorous skewering of those old guard myths.
For those who have yet to read Guy's speech, I consider it perhaps the most important speech/article our scene has seen in some time. You'll find it here on Leatherati:
