Race Bannon Joins NCSF Board

By December 01, 2011

Leather activist and author Race Bannon joined the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF) board of directors.

Race is the founder of the popular Kink Aware Professionals free list service that refers people to kink-sensitive psychotherapeutic, medical and legal professionals. Race asked the NCSF to take over the hosting and management of KAP, which is now one of our most popular programs. Race was also the leader of The DSM Project that led to a beneficial change in 1994 in the way the psychotherapeutic profession views BD/SM.

The NCSF is currently building on the foundation laid by Race and Guy Baldwin in that project, moving closer towards the goal of depathologizing BD/SM.

Kinky sex has been one of Race Bannon's passions as a practitioner, organizer, writer, educator, commentator, activist and leader since his first explorations of the leather world starting in 1973.

Race is the author of the best seller Learning The Ropes: A Basic Guide to Safe and Fun SM Lovemaking (Version 2.0 available soon); founder of Daedalus Publishing Company, the first publishing company dedicated to publishing nonfiction leather/SM/fetish books; writer of many articles on sexuality; former sex advice columnist; former producer and host of Bound To Talk, the first internet talk show about kinky sex; past Board member of NLA: International, NLA: Los Angeles and Avatar Club Los Angeles; and associate member of Chicago Hellfire Club.

Race sits on the Board for the Community-Academic Consortium for Research on Alternative Sexualities (www.carasresearch.org) and also for the Leather Hall of Fame (www.leatherhalloffame.com). He is on the organizing committee for Open SF, an upcoming 2012, three-day conference focused on creating non-monogamy community (inclusive of polyamorous people, BDSM aficionados, swingers, sex workers, queer non-monogamous folks, and non-monogamous families).
