Swallow Your Pride 2019!


It’s the 5th year of Swallow Your Pride! – Vancouver’s only queer BDSM play party on pride weekend!

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 gather.

Friday, August 2nd, 2019 I 8 pm – 1 am l Maritime Labour Centre l 1880 Triumph St

It’s been five incredible years of queering leather, building community, and celebrating BDSM pride with our fabulous queer community! We are so thrilled to see how your support has brought us this far.

Please join us for a night of sexy play in a large and fully-equipped dungeon, with suspension frames, crosses, massage tables, cages, and spanking benches. As always, our curated playlist features music by queer and BIMPOC artists.

Whether you are a skilled Daddy, femme4femme, bratty switch, genderqueer kinkster, or new to the scene and still exploring, every glorious (19+) LGBTQ2SI+ kinkster is welcome.

This event does not tolerate racism, anti-blackness, transphobia, homophobia, fatphobia, ableism, TERFS or SWERFS. We promote the use of enthusiastic consent when seeking play, touch, and interaction in the dungeon. The organizers will intervene, and you will be asked to leave if you do not adhere to these standards. Attendees may ask any organizer or designated “responsible adult” (identifiable by large rainbow sashes) for assistance at any time.
