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".

Gogo or Go Go (she/her) started exploring the BDSM and Kink community in her early twenties in Los Angeles. However, after her return to her southern roots she has spent many years as a “bedroom only” kinky Black biqueerfemme (and cis woman.) After almost a decade in the (conservative) K-12 education environment—she is finally free to participate in community spaces. What better way to build roots then to make yourself highly vulnerable to a mass of strangers doing what you do best??? Geaux (or Go) is also a life long personal and professional development enthusiast. Her interest for psychosocial development; her passion for building inclusive spaces; and her love for restive expression has led her to developing classes and workshops that empower others to dig deep and connect with their innermost. This has looked like:
- teaching a creative memoir and feminist theory classes for young people;
- mentoring and coaching teachers, especially around creating inclusive spaces for all brains;
- Workshops on Intimacy and relationship building for neurodiverse folks;
- And using creative expression as self-exploration.
When she is not leading workshops (or breaking out of her bedroom-only bubble) Go Go is a photographer, puzzle addict, a music appreciator, lover of queer tv “dramas” from around the world, an ethically non-monogamous slut, and a student of metaphysics.
You've probably picked up by now that she goes by multiple iterations of her name: Gogo, Go Go, Go, and Geaux all work in conversation and communication.
Zak, also known as Havok, is a slutty, queer, sex positive, St. Bernard puppy and relationship anarchist. He has been able to explore the larger kink and fetish world and the people in it by advocating for consent, sex, pleasure, and justice for all. He is a switch leaning submissive and discovered the leather and kink community in 2012 and has been barking up the right and sometimes wrong trees ever since. He is proud, though still a little tired, to have served as both Tri-state Puppy 2017 and IPC International Puppy 2019. A community educator, feminist, collared submissive, and Bootblack, he currently lives in Indianapolis, Indiana where he can be found writing about sex, relationships, kink education, and engaging in other hedonist activities to subvert the heterosexist upbringing he experienced.
This might surprise you, but I didn’t always want to be a sex therapist when I was growing up. I actually wanted to be a dolphin trainer. When that didn’t pan out, I found my career path as a social worker by volunteering for the Court Appointed Special Advocates of Baltimore, then went on to work with traumatized kids at Johns Hopkins Bayview. I found that work to be much more meaningful than my original career choice, so I stuck with it. In graduate school, I realized that I wanted to be a therapist, so I expanded my experience and education to make that happen.
I’m Heather M. Garner. Since 2011, I’ve worked in my own practice, Garnering Change Psychotherapy, in Towson, Maryland. What I’ve found is that the reason most people come to therapy is grief and loss. It may disguise itself as another problem, but grief and loss are usually behind the issues we encounter in life. These days, I work as a sex therapist with two main areas of focus; consensually non-monogamous, and kink-identified individuals and partners.
In the kink community, it is often difficult for members to find a therapist who will not make their lifestyle choices an issue when it is not one. I maintain my practice as a sex-positive, affirming mental health practice dedicated to intimate relationships and sexual health. I ensure that my associates are like-minded therapists who create a comfortable environment for those who identify as part of the kink and consensually non-monogamous community.
I help foster healthy relationships in kink and help explore better ways to maintain open relationships. We’re better as a society than we were in the past about kink and polyamory, but we still have a way to go. People continue to experience discrimination, judgment, and persecution for having a non-traditional view of sex. The stigma remains. In addition to seeing patients in my office, I am also a speaker at local kink community and group events. I’m a firm believer in educating mental health professionals in this area and often facilitate training sessions and supervision.
The intersection of mental health, kink, and polyamory mirrors the intersection of art and science when it comes to therapy. The science is easy to teach people. The art, empathy, intuition… are all there to be developed in certain people. Figuring out how to do the work has to combine skills, knowledge, experience, and innate gifts.
I’m a straight shooter with an engaging sense of humor. I’ve done many different things in my career as a mental health professional, and I’m ready to do more. Outside of work, I have many interests. I love spending time with my partner, my “little person,” and our two lab-mix rescues, Manny and Dante. I love traveling and have a deep appreciation for architecture. I love creating….food, painting and restoring furnature, and photography. I love drive-in movies and hate modern art, in case you’re wondering about that.

Master Kaddan Yue, Northeast LeatherWoman 2020-2021 and founding sister of ONYX Pearls NY/Northeast, has more than 40 years experience living the lifestyle. After spending her initial seven years in the lifestyle "training from the bottom up," she has become the third generation of her The House of Yue line. Specializing in long-distance power exchange dynamics and outreach, Master Kaddan identifies as a Transient Transgender woman who has very strong masculine energy, I choose to dress masculine, my honorific is Sir. Master with a primary love is for fem lesbians and currently owns the House of Yue with a mix of females and a male. The structure of the house is trainees, slaves, and property who reside outside of the NYC Metro area.
Master Kaddan emphasizes strong communication skills in all aspects of the lifestyle. She holds a Professional Human Services Degree with emphasis on Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy and previously served for more than 18 years federal and state-level forensic populations including violent offenders, individuals with mental health issues, and individuals coping with HIV/AIDS. Now retired, her focus has shifted to being a Life Coach Consultant, building her household, the M/s community, and volunteering.
As part of her advocacy for healthy power exchange relationships and desire to broaden the definition of the BDSM community, Master Kaddan embraced technology to help share best practices, practical application, and mentoring beyond the bounds of real-time traditional Leather settings.
"While some may dismiss any platform other than Real Life, there are millions of individuals around the world unable to access real-life interactions safely or easily connect with the elders in our communities. Younger generations use technology to connect over time, distance, and cultural divides. The BDSM and Leather communities should also embrace technology to share critical introductory information concerning our lifestyles."
In 2011, Master Kaddan’s outside the box thinking led her to the Second Life (SL) platform, where she identified a gap in the online virtual world’s BDSM groups, Master/slave dynamics were often misrepresented and/or misinterpreted. To help fill the gap, she developed within the Second Life platform The Art of Submission (AOS), an education-focused Master/slave venue to host unique lifestyle-related discussions with facilitators who are active in their Real-Life Communities. AOS does 4 discussions a week, I am currently doing Thursday reaching 10 to 25 people per discussion.
"I was taught that service can have many faces, so I’ve harnessed Second Life as one of the many ways to explore and promote healthy D/s and M/s dynamics. The question is simply, ‘Are you open-minded?'"

Whistler is an asexual dominant from Oklahoma City who finds joy in bad puns, loves learning new things, and tries not to take himself too seriously (with some success). Whistler holds a bachelor's degree in psychology and a paralegal certificate. In his vanilla career, he has nine years of experience writing and negotiating corporate contracts, which often requires breaking down complex ideas in order to communicate them simply and concisely. He applies these negotiation and communication skills to his own kink practice, and thoroughly enjoys sharing what he has learned with others.
Whistler has taught classes at ThatPlace in Oklahoma City and 13th Floor in Tulsa ranging from impact play and flogging to consent, negotiation, and emotional literacy. Conferences attended include Tribal Fire, Oklahoma Leatherfest, OKC Kink Weekend, South Plains Leatherfest, and Thunder in the Mountains.
