BDSM beyond the binary

What-is-queer-Morty_Diamond_Trans_Entities_c_DarrenMayhem

Women dressed in latex, high heels and mean as hell, towering over whimpering men on the floor. The submissive Anastasia Steel and her oh so dominant Christian Grey. Many images around BDSM are coming from a straight point of view. But what is there to find if we look further, approaching kinky matters from a more queer point of view. Today we’re going to explore BDSM beyond the binary, to see what is out there.

Our main film of tonight is one of the first ‘docuporn’ films out there: Transentities – The Nasty Love of Papi and Wil. This film offers a very intimate view on the relationship between Papi and Wil, an interracial, polyamorous, queer transgendered couple. We follow them in their everyday life, hear them talk about love, genderfluidity, sex and kink. These parts are mixed with explicit sex scenes between them and a intense, heavy and sometimes boundary pushing BDSM roleplay scene. Although this film isn’t mainly about BDSM, it’s an thought provoking document of intimate power relations. Next to the main film we’ll show short films depicting BDSM beyond the binary.

Of course we will end the evening with a discussion with our guests to dive deeper into this subject.
