BSB 2020 & Covid-19

BSB 2020 & Covid-19 Understandably we have had a number of messages from people asking what the effect of the Covid-19 outbreak will be on BSB 2020. Unfortunately, the situation around the corona virus deteriorates daily in Spain We have been waiting for the Spanish & Catalan Government to release its latest advice, which they have done today. It is now clear that this outbreak isn’t going to last just a couple of weeks, but is going to be an unprecedented long haul challenge. The Government have estimated that Spain is approximately two weeks behind where Italy currently is, and that coronavirus infections will continue to increase through March and April even maybe into May. Although the Spanish Government has not banned small gatherings at this stage but they advised to be precautionary and ask too… we expect that travel and event restrictions will be introduced as cases reach their peak. It is for these reasons that the Core Team have, with great sadness, decided to postpone BSB2020. For us to go ahead with the weekend in the middle of a public health emergency would be hugely irresponsible, not only for our visitors but also for the communities they return too. We all have to play a part in ensuring that we reduce the chance and speed of onward transmission. I know this will be hugely disappointing for many people who were hoping to come and we apologise immensely for the inconvenience caused with flights and hotels. Hopefully you will all understand why we have had to take this decision, which we have not done lightly. We will try our best to reschedule this year’s BSB2020 to a date later in the year, although everything is very much up in the air at the moment and we can make no promises. We informed all our sponsors and most of our guests before we wanted to go public on social media, we want to say a big thank you to all, that they understand our decision, we also hope that all of you will understand? For those who can not cancel or are already arrived in Barcelona we will propose an alternative gathering and our members who live here are happy to give you a great time during your stay… Look after yourselves stay safe, The SLFC Core Team.

INFO: Barcelona Spring Break 2020!

The safety of our guests is, of course, of the utmost importance to us. We monitor the current situation and adjust our approach accordingly on a daily basis. On our website you will find the latest information on Corona and BSB 2020. Is Barcelona Spring Break 2020 taking place? According to the current state of knowledge, yes. The Ministry of Health recommends the cancellation of all major events for over 1,000 guests. However, since BSB2020 is based on many events that are each below this limit, we are in close contact with the authorities. External events (such as the Churros on Chocolate 1000+) are not in our area of ​​responsibility, the organization of this event will take their own decision. How can I protect myself from infection? The website of the Ministry of Health provides precise information on the spread and prevention of an infection. I have flu symptoms. Can I still attend BSB2020 events? If you currently have symptoms of flu or Covid-19, we ask you not to attend the BSB2020 events. All bars & places where we have events are taking precautions and will be provided with disinfectants. The Board of the Spanish Leather & Fetish Community (SLFC)

Soon we celebrate Barcelona Spring Break

Dear SLFC members, dear SLFC friends, Soon we celebrate Barcelona Spring Break. This is our second edition and we are doing our best to offer a variety of interesting programs between the 7th and 10th of March. Like last year, this year we also try to combine parties with fetish culture. During the long weekend you can visit the photographic exhibitions of the official IML photographer Ron Volanti Jr in the Boxer shop and the exhibition of the Finnish fetish photographer Mikko Karekivi in the Cincomonos theatre. The first “Musical Fetish” will take place in which the money collected from the ticket will be used for the trip of the current Mister Fetish Spain, Emerson Prieto, for his trip to IML Chicago. We recommend visiting this event and helping to raise funds. We also have some surprises, such as a garage sale (where you can get rid of your old fetish equipment or you can buy some new clothes) or our special Fetish on Ice Sunday event. We have several parties for each fetish and we will discover the city during a fun puppy walk (Puppy Walk). And of course as the main event of the weekend, we will choose the new Mister Fetish Spain, who will represent the association and the Spanish fetish community in the year 2019. On Saturday 9 March we held our Annual General Assembly. We ask each member to participate. At this meeting we try to explain the association’s plans and projects for the coming year and decide on some personal changes in direction. For each party you can buy tickets at the door of the local (with your SLFC discount). Puppy crawl, puppy walk and exhibitions are free. Reservations are required for the meals we offer. – Dinner 07.03.2019 (3-course fixed menu with 2 drinks included) €20 – Lunch 09.03.2019 (menu to choose under the following link) 17 €. <font color=#38B0DE>-=https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1KBZN7XOr9BY-yEu-Rp0XJt4gT3SqJ6HmXXFK9AO2rO0/edit?usp=- Proudly Presents – Breakfast 10.03.2019 (same place as Garage) 15 €.

Dear Community,
This is one of those moments in time that words seem to fail me. I want to give you an update on what is occurring in IMsLBB land. After many hours, and many, many, emails, the Doubletree released us from our contract for the April 2020 date.
The release came late Friday, even though we had announced the postponement earlier, knowing it was the right decision, but risking having to pay the full contract.
The hotel has been slow to adjusting to the landscape in front of them, waiting for the state and the county to mandate no gatherings, but then maybe we have all been there.
It is not like we have ever faced a pandemic of this magnitude before. In some ways, it reminds me of HIV/AIDS, and in other ways, it seems so much more dire. In the process of postponement of the April event, we started the conversation about available dates in the future. This has been an emerging situation with new information every day on the duration of the pandemic, impact on the economy and on our lives. I, like many Americans, am not trusting the information from our own government regarding how
long we will be sheltering in place and how long people are contagious. According to the World Health Organization data, it looks like we will be dealing with this into the summer
with a possible re-occurrence later this year.
While many have been able to continue working from home, many more community members around the world are seriously financially impacted by this. As I reviewed the dates available to reschedule, I kept asking myself is moving forward the right choice? Covid-19 has forced us to change the way we commune with each other and impacted what our events might look like.
The IMsLBB weekend is, at its core, an exploration of our sex positive culture. In the age of social distancing, how do we gather?
In our talks with the hotel, the only viable date, that met our space needs, was over the summer. By then, the shelter in place requirements may be lifted but what are the risks
with long asymptomatic periods before someone gets sick, and then being contagious for another three weeks after when COVID19 could still be spread. I also asked myself,
even if we could address the disease questions, will our community be economically ready to attend a major event in California. Based on all these factors and the shifting landscape regarding COVID19, I realized that no risk to human life was worth risking and our higher priority had to be our local communities.
Therefore, I have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 IMsLBB event.
Now for the details of what this means. Although the hotel has released us from the 2020 contract, we have incurred expenses that cannot be recovered. Refunds will be
available over the next few weeks. You can request a refund until April 24 by emailing your request to refunds@imslbb.org. We hope these funds will help defray some of the expenses you may be facing.
We are also hoping that some of you, who could afford to not take a refund, would consider this option. With your funds, you could help us pay these expenses. We will donate all remaining funds to two organizations who are working to support members of our community during the COVID19 crisis. The first is the Bay Area Leather Lifeline because this has been the home of our event for the last 11 years. The second is the Leather Heart Foundation Disaster Relief Fund which supports needs nationally. As an international event, we would be willing to consider international
groups but at this point in time, we haven’t been able to identify any organizations that are specifically supporting community in this direct way. If you feel strongly about supporting our efforts, we are also accepting donations via PayPal (sharrin@imsl.org). We believe this is the best use of funds at this critical time.
We want to thank everyone who has been a part of the 2020 planning. Your work has brought us this far and your contribution has been vital to making the IMsLBB Weekend
a growing, thriving event over the last 6 years of Generation 4. I hoped this would be the year I would be celebrating my last year, and turning the event over to Generation 5 in
2021. Those plans are still in the works and when finalized, we will announce the next steps.
With this cancellation it is our goal is to ensure next generation has a solid base to build on. We will be making more announcements over the next few weeks regarding our stepping down titleholders and future plans. We encourage our local community leaders, titleholders and community members to do what we do best, organize, raise funds and take care of each other as we face this crisis together.

Again, if you would like to request a refund, please contact us by April 24, 2020 by email: refunds@imslbb.org

Please stay safe,
Sharrin Spector
