Kevin Lowery passes

By Rodney Burger for Baltimore Outloud

On November 10th the Mid-Atlantic Leather community lost Sir Kevin Lowery who worked to make sure that LGBT events were welcoming and accessible to the deaf community. I have known Kevin for many years and would see him often. He was a member the Leather club BLADeaf (Baltimore Leather Association of the Deaf) and for a short time wrote a Leather column for the Baltimore Gay Life newspaper under the name Sir K. He taught sign language classes at the GLCCB (now the Pride Center of Maryland). He was also the sign language interpreter for countless LGBT events. At the Mr. Maryland Leather 2019 contest he was onstage all afternoon as the ASL interpreter. In April 2017 he invited me to his home for lunch and we sat outside on a beautiful spring day while he proudly told me about the Mid-Atlantic Deaf & Interpreter Fund (MADIF), which he founded to not only make sure that LGBT events had interpreters, but also to ensure that those skilled persons were compensated.

Uncle Frazier Botsford

It is with profound sadness that we announce that Uncle Frazier Botsford, the founder of The Crucible in Washington, DC, has died in mid-November. Frazier started The Crucible as a traveling kinky party before transitioning to our first settled home at Half Street SW nearly 20 years ago. As neighborhoods changed and the club was forced to move, he was the driving force in rebuilding each subsequent location of the club to be even better than the previous one. Frazier was also one of the creators of Camp Crucible and the Leather Flea and Play and an EBM of Black Rose. In addition to his service to the BDSM and alternative lifestyle communities, Frazier was a musician and voice actor. Frazier impacted hundreds, if not thousands, of people throughout his life with his big heart and need to help which will forever be remembered. He received a Pantheon of Leather President's Award in 2014. The Crucible's Board of Directors will continue to operate The Crucible as Frazier would have wished and to honor his legacy. A memorial service will be planned; details will be forthcoming.

The Kink Mentoring Archives
By Papa Tony

Back in December 2018, Tumblr went kablooey. It didn't just take down porn blogs. It also took down many blogs written by wise, kind and deeply experienced kinky folks.
