This year has had many people trying to find their personal and professional rhythm again as they attend social events. Many people are now choosing to participate in hybrid (in-person and online) events, making planning more difficult. Many community groups have been suffering from declining attendance rates. These groups have experienced decreased opportunities for face-to-face social connections with neighbors, lessened community engagement, and missed opportunities for celebrating accomplishments throughout the year. This year the Agent Of Influence Awards will be bestowed through many kink, lifestyle, and community groups as recognize and celebrate our culture bearers. These awards formally recognize people and organizations whose actions and work impacted you and the culture of our connected lifestyle communities. If you are a Kink, Lifestyle, or Community organization supporting the inclusion of all people, please reach out if you would like to collaborate and utilize the annual awards as a fundraiser for your group. These Awards celebrate the positive work that's happening in the world and recognize leaders, innovators, and changemakers.
The Agent of Influence Award is to recognize the contributions that people and organizations have made to the local and global kink, lifestyle, alternative communities, and the culture of our connected communities. We all belong to a diverse community of people who share their love and passion for their way of life and themselves as expressive possibilities. Every day, our actions affect our community in positive or negative ways. Our culture has a lot of diversity, as evidenced by our gender, sexuality, and organizational expressions. It's all a part of our cultural heritage, and we pass it on.
Appreciation is a fundamental human need, and all of us who are doing the work in the communities know it is a lot of work. The bulk of that work often goes unnoticed, and the challenges often remain behind the scenes. Through these awards, an individual's work or an organization's efforts are appreciated and acknowledged as valuable and meaningful in our lives and communities' legacies.
This award began as I began teaching my style of hypnosis and concepts of power exchange to a select few. We formed a tight-knit group that moved internationally and in many circles today. From the beginning, these awards sought to honor, reward, and celebrate each other's work, progress, and contributions to a variety of fields. It is important to celebrate, honor, and recognize one another. Over time we started giving awards to our favorite authors, speakers, trainers, and community members. We would invite them to drink with us and tell them stories about how their words, works, and art inspired us. That is the spirit of these awards and how I encourage all of us to embrace being cultural agents that promote and embody the changes that they want to see in the world.
The first to be recognized this year is The Big Easy Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Their work to share a sex and kink positive perspective, decreasing stigma, shame, and guilt for LGBTIQQ people, is a refuge for many. Their work to provide resources for sex-positive education, community and personal development, and empowerment is invaluable. They also are a group that believes in and actively works to create a better world for our youth, and those discovering themselves for the first time.

Want your organization here? Tell me about you, and let's start an annual tradition of celebrating members that build up our communities today.
My work is geared toward those who enjoy hypnosis, influence, community development, advocacy, kink, and BDSM lifestyle power exchange themes. Much of my work is designed for people who seek to develop themselves with like-minded people and who don't want their future lifestyle and opportunities to be defined by others in mainstream culture. We live in a society that often gives us a very narrow idea of what's a good life. This is not that. This work was designed to bring people together from multiple communities and be shared as a community-driven entry point where people can come together and have positive experiences that can change them. Please share them as this brings others attracted to these themes into our circle. These words were created with passion, kindness, and appreciation to share what I enjoy with those of us seeking the right fit. That's just part of the benefit and pleasure of sharing. It also makes me happy. :> Seek the Tao of the Crown!
