Consent in a collective
Local event organizers are making important strides to try and be at the leading edge of establishing a healthier culture of consent at their parties, dances, festivals, kink scenes, and other gatherings. Meso Creso, Mischief DC, and the Interfusion Festival are trying out clearly posted consent codes and “consent rangers.” They’ve gotten some pushback (from boring creeps, imo), but the new approach has gone a long way towards establishing a healthier culture in which to find a dance partner or get freaky.
If you want to start getting in the fall spirit, Adams Morgan Porchfest is a great place to start. Stroll around the neighborhood and listen to everything from Knyves Escobar (soul) and Babies with Rabies (punk) to The Foggy Bottom Whomp Stompers (20s swing). Crowds for a popular band will also sometimes block traffic, if Open Streets has got you in the mood. (2-6pm)
