Spring Fever 2019

The Swallow Your Pride events are organized and held on the unceded, traditional territory and homelands of the Coast Salish people, specifically the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. As organizers, we encourage all attendees to thoughtfully consider how collectively we can be supportive and in solidarity every day with the Indigenous communities on whose land we live, gather and play.

Celebrate Vancouver’s queer BDSM scene with a Spring edition of Swallow Your Pride, plus 3 workshops by queer presenters!

Join us for an afternoon of workshops featuring futch leather dyke Elaine, sadomasochistic science nerd Xanthine, and bratty cosmetic creative, BabyGirl Momo. Then splash into the night with our Spring dungeon party, featuring music from queer and POC artists, and a full dungeon of play equipment including rope suspension frames (including a hemp-free play area), spanking benches, cages, medical-play tables and more.

Whether you are a devious Daddy, femme4femme, genderqueer kinkster, or a curious little, queer kinky folks of every glorious gender are welcome! Come out of hibernation and get your spring sting on!
