Panel Description

Join our diverse panel from both the top and bottom sides in a safe space as we explore mental health and being a little/middle/teen. Our questions will journey through the joys, struggles, coping mechanics, comforts, and how our partners can support us when it comes to our mental health as a little/middle/teen. Bring your stuffies, blankets, friends, and questions for a time of connection, acceptance, and self-discovery.

J Baby

(he/him/his)

Panelists Bio

J Baby is International Leatherboy 2019, 2020, 2021, & 2022 and South Central Leatherboy 2019. He was always curious about the forbidden, and that search for the peculiar and the internet led him to the magical world of the kinky. In 2007 he explored and took baby steps into a different scene and began his journey as a Leatherboy. Despite protests, he refused to "put away childish things" and is proud to be a Leather little boy. He enjoys serving in whatever way that is, as well as finding any excuse for cuddles. He has presented for events and organizations across the country. He has also served as a Judge, Judge's boy, and Emcee for a number of contests and events as well. When having to be out in the "vanilla" world, he spends most of his time working in the theatre, teaching. gaming, and watching far too much YouTube.

the gurl Yue

(the gurl/she/her)

Panelists Bio

Master Kaddan's trainee, the gurl, a slave babygurl primal is a curious beastie made of shadows, giggles, a hunger for knowledge and new experiences. This burgeoning presenter is a passionate advocate for giving a voice to all things Dark. Whether talking about littles/middle/teens, babybeings or its journey in and out of slavehood, it has lent its voice to multiple conferences, panels and discussions. Always ready with a wiggly giggly grin to give a helping hand, especially when there are tickles involved it spends much of its time moderating, hosting social hours or volunteering in some form. The gurl is the founder of Dark Little Leather (https://www.darklittleleather.com) where its blog, custom leather collars, cuffs and Dark Little creations live. If all else fails... look into the shadows and listen closely... the gurl is likely there quietly giggling in the brightest darkness.
