Time Line Info
- or -"BDSM: Boundaries, Definitions and Sanity Management!"
Over the years, there have been many attempts by various people to compile "A Complete Alternative Sexuality History Timeline" for our "alphabet communities".
Our approach to a timeline project will be quite different. We are asking YOU to be our "Research Assistants" so that our timeline will include information about as many different lifestyles/communities as possible. We have decided on a three tier approach:
- First of all, we decided to start with the ""Leather History Timeline"" compiled by Tony DeBlaise. It was quite an undertaking, and I thank him for the work that he has done;
- secondly, we have placed this information in an easy to use, WikiPedia format; and
- finally, we are asking that everyone check our timeline and then send us email so that we may make additions, corrections, deletions.
Information we would like to see added are major dates in "our history" such as when a specific club, organization was formed or closed; when (and by whom) a specific phrase, flag or icon was presented; and anything else that you might consider to be "a historical event".
If you have any information that you would like to see added to this project, we would ask that you click on the link below. Please include the sources of your information (hopefully first-hand experiences, if possible) so that we may verify them.
