What we're about

DONATE TO CAL HERE (http://coloradocal.com/donate)

The Colorado Center for Alternative Lifestyles (CAL) (http://coloradocal.com) is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable corporation committed to creating an environment in our state that supports consenting adults who engage in alternative relationship expressions and structures. We pursue our vision through direct services, education, and outreach, in conjunction with our partners, to directly benefit individuals who choose alternative lifestyles and the communities that support them. In this meetup group, we hope to facilitate social gatherings and educational events for those in alternate lifestyle communities, and to build bridges between them for common understanding.

What do we mean by “Alternative Lifestyles”?

The communities that we intend to serve include the following:

• Non-Monogamy: Polyamory, swingers, open marriage, plural marriage, etc

• LGBTQ+: Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, asexual, pansexual, etc Kink: Leather,

• BDSM, M/s, D/s, power exchange, fetish, etc

In other words, we believe in providing support and empowering people to make their own choices with regards to:

• How they structure/restrict their relationships,

• Who they have those relationships with, and

• What they do within the bounds of those relationships

Beyond Grey: BDSM/ Kink 101

Online event

So you read the book, saw the movie, felt something tingle. You are curious about bondage, sadomasochism, power exchange, and are interested in trying it for yourself. PLEASE STOP! Many of the technical details of 50 Shades of Grey, to say nothing of the unhealthy emotional dynamic, are not realistic, and are even dangerous. However, there is a growing and thriving REAL LIFE community of kinky people in Colorado, across the USA, and around the world who can help you learn how to explore these things safely. This class will cover the basics of BDSM (Bondage/Discipline, Dominance/Submission, Sadism/Masochism) and let you know where you can find more resources right here in Denver, including gatherings, parties, and classes for every experience level. Finally, we will share with you best books with the most credible and reliable information available to ensure that you get off on the right foot and have a great time doing it. COST: These classes are offered for free to the members of our community. However, we ask that those are able donate $10 per person to help us cover the ongoing expenses of operating a charity.

You are only able to share a blanket with the person (or people) you’ve come to the event with. Feel free to move your blanket around but be mindful of other’s blankets (space)! Your blanket cannot touch the blanket of another group. Utah Park is quite large. To make we find each other easily, please gather in the field across from the parking lot at 1pm MNT Saturday September 26th. The Social Team will be wearing nametags so you’ll know you’re in the right spot! Once folks have gathered, we will find space to accommodate our groups size. If the turnout is exceptional, we will break up into several groups so the intimacy and fun of speaking face-to-face isn’t lost.

This location is accessible via bus route 121. There are two stops on either end of the park facing South Peoria St. Food and drinks will not be provided – however, it will likely be a lovely day outside. Feel free to bring a snack or two and some drinks for enjoying in the park with new friends. We are all very excited to meet you and key you all in on ideas and events Colorado CAL’s Social Team has in store for the future!
