ToroGRUE 2 – MAYDAY!

torogruebannerred

Due to popular demand, the GRUE – Graydancer’s Ropetastic Unconference Extravaganza – returns to Toronto, this May 1st at Renegade.

The GRUE is an unconference that Graydancer has facilitated around the US and Canada, giving people of kink a chance to come together in a non-mediated way and discuss issues they themselves find important and compelling. The best and clearest explanation of the structure of a GRUE and what you can expect from attending can be found in Graydancer’s article, “The Care & Feeding of a GRUE”.


UPDATE: Just created an event listing on FetLife here.


Some comments from past participants about the GRUE Experience:

“GRUE seemed to have that kind of “in way deeper than I signed up for” coupled w/ I wish everything was this rewarding sort of experience. I will attend any others in my area.” – Dermestid on FetLife

“i hadn’t experienced such a sense of intimacy with so many strangers, ever before. there are many in my personal network that will feel the ripple effect, as i am strengthened, validated and further intrigued in the wake of this event.” – Stella_Semiauto on FetLife

“…the community and the shared experience that the GRUE facilitated was nothing short of beautiful.” – Sascha on FetLife

“I’m going to go out on a limb and say I actually have learned more at these two events than all the other cons combined that I’ve attended.” – MasterMackJB on FetLife
