Profile Details

Goddexx Symphonee is a Black, Bisexual, Non Binary, LeatherFemme who has been active in the Baltimore and DMV community for over 8 years. Her passion for kink and Leather is set in her belief in the spiritual and practical liberation that both practices can bring to those who participate in them, especially members of the African Diaspora. Once she began to get comfortable with her own path, Mx Symphonee served as President of the Mid Atlantic Onyx Pearls and as an organizer for Perverts of Color to fulfill her need to give back. She is currently representing her local community as the Ms DC Eagle titleholder and building her project known as "N.E.S.S.T". Calling on her unique personal experiences and knowledge, she has participated in panels across the country and taught a variety of classes ranging from “Strap On Basics” to “Intersections of Kink and Spirituality”. While she has held a few roles since entering the scene, she currently identifies as a Dominant, Sadist, Top leaning switch, LeatherFemme, and Cat.

Mask On/ Mask Off: A QTBIPOC discussion

Discussion Description

Mask On/ Mask Off is a safer space that centers QTBIPOC folx and voices. In this space, we will be discussing the joys and struggles of navigating our mental health and sexual/sensual lives as QTBIPOC people. We'll be touching on issues like:

How are we coping within Power/Authority Exchange Dynamics/Relationships during the pandemic?

How are we as QTBIPOC folx dealing with mental illness during the pandemic?

Have you discovered new joys in life and ways of being kinky?

Let’s talk about these things and more!

Come in, get UNcomfortable, and share your feelings and thoughts.

People who identify as anything other than QTBIPOC folx are welcomed in the space to learn, but we kindly ask you to mute your microphone and turn off your camera.
