The Liaison program began in 2015 to include underrepresented segments in the women's leather/kink/BDSM community on the IMsLBB Productions senior staff and supporting the IMsL Foundation board. The liaisons review workshops, scholarships and develop programming for the weekend as part of their responsibilities.
We would like to welcome Butch Prandium from Chicago as our new People of Color liaison, slave tabitha as co-liaison for Trans Women and Mara as co-liaison for accessibility. Jewel, Luca and Becca continue as our Under 35, Trans Women and Accessibility liaisons/co-liaisons.
