now onto your questions :)

1) What concerns do you have about a national BDSM convention in regards to disability?
- whether and to what extent ALL the spaces and equipment used are accessible

- whether the groups definition of accessible includes a wide range of definitions... including chemical sensitivities.

- that gimps are actively involved in the organizing and implementation of the events (and not just the "fluff" either)

- that there is sufficient time given between workshops etc to get from A to B, and that shuttles or what have you are available

- that gimps are not tokenized and invisibilized as kinky folks, and that excuses are not made for our exclusion based on time/money/energy (the usual suspects)

2) What would you love to see at a national BDSM convention in regards to disability?
- see above. in addition: promotional materials for the events (*including* any sexy/fun stuff) include images of kinky gimps; that the group has reached out to local/national gimp groups...
and fabulous kinky gimps getting their perv on.
3) Do you have anything you could contribute to a national BDSM convention in regards to disability and would you be willing to do so? (Australia only unless you're really keen to travel!)

- living in canada i could really only forward promo stuff...and wish i was there :P
