Boston Slut Walk

I had an absolutely fabulous time at the Boston Slut Walk on Saturday with findingthegirl, teratomarty and other friends and associates. The turnout was great, the outfits were great, the signage was fantasic. Enthusiastic chanting of slogans I agree with ("However we dress, wherever we go, yes means yes and no means no!"), inspiring speakers, and all-round awesomeness.

There were four workshops after the march and rally part, held at the Eucentre, which I'd never visited before. They were on shaming language, partner abuse, polyamory and masculinity. I led the one on polyamory, which was well-attended and well-received. I feel especially great because I feel I helped support this event. Not just by leading a workshop, either - I publicized it to Boston Cheap Thrills, on Fetlife, and in other places, and helped set up the workshop space.

gato_preto found a flickr stream of pictures from the event. So far I haven't seen any photos there that show me clearly but if I do find one I'll post it here. If you are interested in seeing more what the event was like, here's the link to the whole stream: http://www.flickr.com/photos/31167233@N08/sets/72157626545202061/

I'm not often very politically active. If I always had as much fun when I did it as I did on Saturday I think I'd do it a lot more frequently. :)
