SELF also announces two charities to support this year WLHP and CARAS.
The Women’s Leather History Project (WLHP) represents the LA&M’s ongoing commitment to making the diverse voices of women in leather visible and heard. The WLHP will collect artifacts, stories, and other items that represent the experience of all women (straight, gay, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, women of color). SELF is a primary sponsor of this project who will be filming people of interest all weekend long during the event.
Spearheading the WLHP for LA&M will be Sarah Humble and Leigha Fleming. Says Humble, “I am so excited to be involved in leading this project. I have my video recording equipment ready. It’s so important that as women we take the lead in collecting and preserving our own histories!”
Says Fleming, “We will be present at events, scheduling interviews and soliciting donations to make this project a reality”. Vi Johnson & Jill Carter have become our first individual donors and SouthEast Leatherfest has become our first event donor.
Community-Academic Consortium for Research on Alternative Sexualities (CARAS) who is dedicated to the support and promotion of excellence in the study of alternative sexualities, and the dissemination of research results to the alternative sexuality communities, the public, and the research community.
Founded in 2005, CARAS supports research addressing understudied sexual communities, with a current focus on BDSM/leather/kink/fetish sexualities and consensual non-monogamous relationships such as polyamory.
Both charities are 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations so contributions are deductible.
