  • What is NELA?
    The New England Leather Alliance, or NELA, is an organization dedicated to making a safe place in the world for all SM/leather/fetish people, through education, advocacy, and charitable giving.

    We are a diversse, pansexual group of adults who share a common interest in leather, SM or similar fetishes and who want to be active in building our community. We are women, men, and transgenered folk; heterosexual, bisexual, homosexual and queer; married, single and poly; young, old, and timeless. NELA is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, and all donations are tax exempt under the appropriate rules and regulations of IRS code.
    What is NLA:I?
    NELA is a regional chapter of the overarching international association now known as the National Leather Association: International (NLA:I). The statement of purpose of NLA:I is, in short, to support the leather community, provide education and public awareness, and fight for the rights of consenting adults to express their sexuality in safe, sane, and consensual manners.

    Among other things, NLA:I provides resources to chapters like ours including educational videos, contact with national speakers, and networking opportunities with activists around the US and Canada.
    When does NELA meet?
    We sponsor different events each month, sometimes in a workshop or class, sometimes an outing or social event. We often bring guest speakers in from around the country; past meeting topcis have included Japanese rope bondage, bullwhip use, and making your own kinky toys. Our events are held in a number of locations in the Boston area, including the Boston Living Center. We strive for safe, community-inclusive venues. We try to be T-accessible, and easy to get to by car, as well. The event calendar is published in the Scarlet Leather, is availabile on our website (nelaonline.org) and can be checked at our hotline message number (617) 876-NELA (6352).

    The NELA board of directors meets on the first Wednesday of each month in the greater Boston area. Every other board meeting is open to all NELA associates, for 2004, our open meetings will be held in January, March, May, July, September, and November. If you would like to attend a meeting, please email board@nelaonline.org to RSVP and to receive information on the meeting location and time.
    What does NELA do?
    We produce the Fetish Fair Fleamarket®, the largest leather/fetish event in New England, which happens in December and August and brings together a hundred top vendors and craftspeople from our local area and aroudn the country. Over the last decade, tens of thousands of people have attended the last FFFs to enjoy the unmatched opportunity to shop, attend workshops and meet people.

    We sponsor and organize a Leather Contingent for Boston Pride, whereby we invite other groups of leather folk to march in the annual Pride parade in one loud section.

    . We host other events, including educational workshops, special parties, demo nights, discussion groups and more. We teach a presentation on the difference between SM and abuse to law enforcement, medical professionals, and officers of the court.

    NELA firmly believes in giving back to both its own community and to progressive allies. Our charitable fund supports the efforts of groups like the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, GLAD (Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders), the Boston Living Center (a community center for people with HIV and AIDS), The Network/La Red, the ACLU, many local Leather oriented groups, as well as individuals in our community fighting for the legal right to express their sexuality. Over the past six years we have given over $50,000 in charitable donations. We continue our efforts to educate the public and to fight for laws that protect our rights to love in the manner that we choose as consenting adults.

    A welcome letter from the Con Chair:

    All Hail the mighty volunteers ...

    The New England Leather Alliance would like to extend its most heartfelt thanks to all of the volunteers. Without the hundreds (if not thousands) of dedicated hours, the Fetish Fair Fleamarket® would not happen. Thank you!

     

    A welcome letter from the Organization:

    Yes, Virginia, there is another Welcome Letter.

    First, the good:

    Greetings and salutations to everyone! Welcome to the New England Leather Alliance’s 28th Fetish Fair Fleamarket ™. Here we are in … where are we again? I’ve lost track. Oh, but wait, we’re in the “good” portion. Okay:

    Is this your first Fetish Fair Fleamarket®? Well, whether it is your first , your tenth or your 28th, I hope you have a blast. We’re all here to be part of the magic that is the Flea. So browse, shop, revel in the atmosphere, learn something new, see an old friend, relax and ENJOY! Please know that NELA is thrilled you are here.

    Now, the not good:

    On behalf of the Board and volunteers, I have to say we are tired of moving around. Andover, Park Plaza, Sheraton, Mansfield, Danvers. Are we Nomads?

    Is it so wrong to want to have a home and stay put for a while? Granted, there are various reasons for some of the departures. I’m guessing we would have stayed in Andover if the Ramada had not gone out of business. And the Sheraton could have been a permanent home if they had been able to offer January dates versus the week before Christmas. But, an industrial park in the middle of nowhere should have worked out. Thanks a lot, Mansfield.

    Keep your fingers crossed. Tell the hotel staff how happy you are to be here. Tell Danvers and Middleton that we will bring in more than a million dollars in business over the weekend. We deserve an event free of antiquated zoning laws, small minded politicians and conservative zealots trying to tell us what we can and cannot do in private surroundings. Freedom of assembly is still a constitutional right. Perhaps this will be kinky Custer’s last stand.

    Cheers,
    Vivienne
    Outgoing Chair (2001-2006)

    Transgender Etiquette

    There are many Transgender people (Transgender, Transexual, Gender Queer, Cross dresser, Gender Variant and more) that attend the Fetish Fair Fleamarket® and/or Masquerade Ball.

    People who are transgender and/or whose gender identity or expression does not conform to stereotypes of male or female often face discrimination and harassment, particularly when accessing public spaces, events, and restrooms. To be inclusive and improve the quality of life for Transgender people here, please read and act upon the following:

    Restrooms
    One way of acknowledging Transgender people’s needs is to both designate restrooms that are gender-neutral and also to allow people to use the genderdesignated restroom that they identify with. In public restrooms, many Transgender people face harassment that can lead to anything from deep discomfort to arrest or murder. Regardless of what restroom you are in, please let everyone use the restroom in peace. Each of us can decide for ourselves in which restroom we belong.

    Pronouns
    A person’s external appearance may not match their internal gender identity. You cannot always know the gender or sex of someone by their physical body, voice, appearance or mannerisms. It is best to ask, “What pronoun do you prefer?” or “How do you identify?” before using pronouns or gendered words. In group situations where you don’t have an opportunity to ask someone what words they prefer, try using gender-neutral phrases like “the person in the red shirt,” instead of “that woman or man.”

    Privacy and respect for all participants
    Please respect transgender people’s privacy and boundaries and do not ask unnecessary questions. If someone discloses they are transgender please do not “out” that person to other people. The transgender person may feel comfortable coming out to you, but may not wish to be out to other people.

    Not all who attend the Fetish Fair Fleamarket® are out about their interest in SM. Please respect people’s privacy and do not out people you may meet or see here at the Fetish Fair Fleamarket® and/or Masquerade Ball.
