That’s the title of the speech I will be giving at Rocky Mountain Rebellion this Saturday in Salt Lake City.
When I read that the theme of the event was “Rebelling Against Shame”, I realized there was only one topic I could possibly discuss.
I will post the full text of the speech the morning after. For now, here’s a short teaser.
In any given year, 1 in 4 adults in the US struggle with a mental health problem and only a small percentage of them will seek help. The good news is research tells us the frequency of these issues are lower within the kink community, but it also tells us that people who do experience problems are less likely to seek help, primarily because they fear their lifestyle will not be understood or respected.
In culturally isolated communities like ours, Shame literally takes lives.
Look for the full text of the speech Sunday morning, right here.
