FLAME Conference stands in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and the protests currently taking place all over the world.

We recognize that we cannot know the pain and frustration Black folks feel. We have not lived your experiences.

We, as the producers and executive board of FLAME Conference, commit:

To listening and learning.

To being open to feedback.

To doing the work and doing better.

To standing with you.

To amplifying the voices of Black folks.

This is a difficult time for the Black folks in our community. We see you. We hear you. We will not stand by and do nothing.

Black Lives Matter.


FLAME Conference was created in the wake of the COVID pandemic, and the subsequent cancellation of many events around the country. Our first event, held April 17-19, 2020, had 30+ classes, keynote speaker, and served 1,000+ registered attendees.


The goal of FLAME Conference is to bring together a vetted, diverse group of presenters. FLAME is committed to being expansive, highlighting the variety of kinks, relationship styles, and interests represented in the BDSM community.
