Jay’s Birthday Party

On Sunday 3/16, Val and I went to Jay’s 45th birthday party. It was great to see him, and also to connect with some friends we don’t see very often. Our friend Rocket took a cute picture of the two of us at the party.

Purim

We once again attended the joint Purim Party, held at Temple Beth Judea in San Francisco, with a lot of our B’nai Emunah friends. First there was a potluck, then two Megillah readings (one more traditional, one with lots of “shtick”), then Havdalah, then dessert. After that there was a movie for the kids, and the adults danced to Klezmania. It was fabulous!

Pictures here.

“Consent Matters” Panel

I moderated a panel on 3/9 called “Consent Matters” to deal with issues of consent violations in the community. It was an honor to be asked, and was attended by about 100 people. Very well done, and an important topic.

Mr. SF Leather

In her role as Ms. SF Leather, Val was automatically a judge for the Mr. SF Leather contest. It was a full weekend affair, 2/28-3/2. Friday was the Contestant Meet & Greet, where Val and the other judges were also introduced,¬†followed by a roast of Andy Cross, the outgoing titleholder and Val’s departing “sash husband”, where she spoke on stage. On Friday she was busy with the various judging activities, so I represented the Hollinger/Langmuir clan at services at B’nai Emunah, then joined Val in SF for the contest. I sat with my friends Rio and Ray since Val was in her exalted position at the judges’ table. On Sunday we went to the Leather Alliance Awards Brunch, where Ms SF Leather won “best contest”, and the Exiles’ Carnal Carnival (which I organized) won best non-contest event. Very cool!

Various pictures with Val and the various Mr. SF Leathers and related events can be found here.
