After an incredible first year in 2020 with over 1000 attendees,

 FLAME Conference is back in 2021!

Online and virtually everywhere, FLAME Conference brings Kink, BDSM,

and Leather Community Education right into your home.

FLAME Conference is thrilled to announce our Keynote Speaker for 2021:

Jessica Bootblack (Jessie)


Jessie is a black leather boi with a touch of femme and her pronouns are She/They. She started her bootblacking journey on the living room coffee table and has since explored many facets of the art. Custom dyes are favorite challenges and she makes sure to experiment and push her skills often.


Jessie has always liked to play the game, ‘Can You Escape?’. This evolved quickly as her curiosity with rope ever expanded. Soon it was, ‘Can You Escape while someone creatively applies electricity?’ and from there, rope wrestling was no major leap. Her little likes to help, her pony ‘Goliath’ likes pets and praises and her Doberman pup is all chew. She is no stranger to bloody fun. Quite often her knife play gives way to cutting and that’s when the fun really begins.

Her joy in bootblacking has been felt in many places. She has shined at DomConLA, IMsLBB, Folsom Street Fair, #StillSinning and Dore Alley. She taught classes for The Exiles. She assisted in many classes for The Group in Fresno (T.G.I.F), KinkyHollow, IMsLBB, Leather Fiesta, and more. She is the official bootblack for 3 black run clubs in the bay area: The Unruly Social Club, Onyx NW, and Puff Cigar Club. She honed her skills at The Powerhouse and the SF Eagle. She has been a guest bootblack for Femmes on Top, The Society of Janus, and Sacramento Bootlab. She currently serves as your San Francisco Bootblack 2020-21.
