Here are some KFADC2 posters I whipped up. The addresses at the bottom are meant to be cut between so they can be ripped off by people who are interested in taking part. Thoughts? Critiques?

Awesome!!!  Quick ideas:

- For the URL, I'd use a URL shortening service that lets you use a make it short and sweet, with a keyword (for SF, we had http://tr.im/kfasf )  ... you can also try bit.ly if tr.im's not working.    This will be way easier for people to type, and gives you space to add "KinkForAll: DC" or something else descriptive to the tear-off tag.

- In the first sign, I'd change the line break on "because nobody should set your agenda for you" so that the line is cut into two equal lines (maybe after "set"). That will make it smoother to read.

- And if you can, I'm a huge fan of picking more stylish fonts for signage (though make sure it's still readable). If you don't have any you like on your computer, try http://www.1001freefonts.com/  and let me know if you need help getting them installed.

xo,
S

I like these.

Some of my thoughts:

* When writing KinkForAll, write it as one word, not three. Good: "KinkForAll"; Bad: "Kink For All". This is more consistent and helps on the Internet side of things with tagging, etc.
* Rather than saying "intersection of sex and life," I prefer "intersection of sexuality and life." I feel that covers a lot more ground, and continues to draw the important distinction between sex *acts* (strictly disallowed)[0] and sexuality *discourse.*

Also, there was another idea for slogans thrown out on Twitter:[1]

"Sexuality's too important to be discussed only by the pros. Come TALK about your thoughts!"

FYI, KFADC2 has several short URLs:

http://tr.im/kfadc2
http://bit.ly/kfadc2

Seconded.

There's a Photoshop doc (.psd) of the original KinkForAll banner that Sinclair Sexsmith made in this group's files section. It uses specific fonts that you might want to re-use in the flyer. Find it here:

Hope this helps. What you're doing is looking great so far!

I'd add the DC Center's specific address - it's a really new location
and it's not as well known in the general DC community as the New York
LGBT Center is.

Kink for All vs. KinkForAll: Drat, I keep forgetting. Duly noted and
will be corrected.

Thank you all for the tip on shortening the web address. I figured the
original one was too long, but it didn't dawn on me to go to an
address shortener. XD

Nik: Aww, thank you. :)

I am annoyed with the font too. I'm putting these together in the
Google draw tool, because I don't have the right software on my Mac/it
has been a long, LONG time since I used any kind of paint program.
I'll see what I can do.
