Discuss the Slut Walk and Fundraising

  • April 14, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come meet to talk about fundraising ideas for the Reno Sex Positive group, as well as start making plans for the SlutWalk later this year.

In regards to fundraising, we can chat about different avenues we can explore (at the moment, the leadership started on a IndieGoGo crowd funding campaign that we need to finish. Hopefully, we can come up with some more ideas and post the IndieGoGo campaign online).

With planning the SlutWalk, at this meeting we will solidify a date, discuss city permits we need in order to hold the march, sponsors and partnerships, guest speakers, etc. Bring your ideas and suggestions- we want to hear them all!

Everyone is welcome and invited! I'll (Andi) bake some treats for everyone (let me know if you have any food allergies). Please BYOB and let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

    Cheryl and I are meeting with the Office of City Mgmt. Monday (April 21) at 10:30am at City Hall, 12th floor to pitch and talk about the SlutWalk. All is welcome and invited.

    In the meanwhile, Alexis sent me paperwork about street closures and noise that I will fill out and get the specs for. I will keep you all updated!

      I'd be glad to help with the paper work, if you like, although I can't be at your meeting. If you like the date of Sept 6th, just put that in the flyer, with location to be determined on this website.

    This is the latest email from Alexis with the City of Reno:

    "Thanks for the additional information. Will your march be rules of the road or are you looking for street closures? We would have to charge for the street closure, you would have to provide insurance naming the City of Reno as additionally insured for the event, and you would need to fill out a special event application (attached). We have time to work out the route since your event isn't until September. I've cc'ed Peggy from our Parks Dept. to see if Wingfield Park is available on September 6 for your speakers. Are you planning to utilize amplified sound at the Park?"

    Everyone's thoughts?

      From Peggy with the Parks and Rec dept.:
      "Wingfield Park is already booked for an event on Sept. 6."

    Andi, I'll be fairly close at an event before, so should be there about 8 or earlier.

    You don't have to be cute to be a slut just enthusiastic, and cheap,or free

      I received a message asking/stating that PaganPhil thought it was some type of pub crawl, thus why I stated to google it. Additionally, I highly encourage everyone planning on doing the slutwalk to research it a bit before we all meet. It quite a feminist movement and it's goals go towards dispelling that woman get raped because of what they wear. Another goal is to protest against violence towards women.

      1 · April 4, 2014

    • steve k.

      Those goals are the kind of advocacy that brought me to this group. After years in law enforcement I can regret that there's still a long way to go.

    I forgot to mention that I have a (very friendly) cat in case anyone has pet allergies. <3

    I know,and for what it's worth,you could the term like I'm a slut for pizza,or that I'm a chocolate whore.

    It's all a matter of semantics, in this age,people seem to read way too much into a comment.
    I've dealt with it in my writings,
    Years ago you could say,gee you look nice...
    Now you could be fired for sexual harassment...

    On the other hand,if a woman is called the b word,
    It's a compliment,meaning she's tough in a man's world.

    It's a two sided axe,it swings both ways.


    But I agree it's a great cause,and I'm just a old man with too many words.

    So have a magical life...

    (if you're offend by the word magical,
    then have a nice day)

    P.P.

      Kind of like the word asshole or dick. I totally get it. Blessed be :)

    Sorry about the term easy, but should I have said promiscuous,thus inflicts a morality call? I was raised before politically correct terms. I think maybe I should have not even said anything. I only use such terms in jokes.... and I'm sorry about my ignorance in such terms, and thus no ill feeling...

    April 4, 2014

    • Weston G.

      No worries papanphil; I got the feeling you were joking. I just know that "easy" can be a bit of a loaded term. No offense taken -- at least not on my part.

      April 4, 2014

    • Cheryl

      Being a slut is not politically correct in any way. ;)

      April 4, 2014

  • paganphil

    And I thought I'd said enthusiastic....

    April 4, 2014

  • paganphil

    question, and not to be disrespectful, do you have any sluts lined up for the event? { just female sluts?}

    April 3, 2014

    • paganphil

      well if I shaved my legs and back,I would give it a try...you never know?

      April 3, 2014

    • Weston G.

      I consider myself a slut as well, but I'm not as cute as Andi

    April 3, 2014

    • AndreaLynn

      Okay! If anything changes, please let me know! :)

      April 3, 2014

    • paganphil

      BEWARNED...I'm wearing my kilt ..

      April 3, 2014

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
