Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services & The Mental Health Services Act present "Voices That Heal", Sunday, May 6
This documentary features interviews with six people whose personal stories shed light on mental health and the experience of being labeled as having a mental “illness”. Those who face the challenge of recovering from mental health conditions, also often face the experiences of being shunned, avoided, and deprived of employment, housing, relationships, and other life opportunities. Stigma can lead adults and children to feel worthless and alone, though many of the most creative and talented members of society face these sorts of challenges. The courage and generosity of sharing, disclosing their struggles and triumphs over mental health challenges, is a transformative experience, both for those sharing and for those bearing witness to these “Voices that Heal”.
Doors open at 3:30, FREE ADMISSION, limited seating Program starts at 4 pm Panel discussion following the film with filmmaker Alex Goldenberg & local Seeds of Understanding Speakers Collective members For more information contact: Karen Diers, email@example.com or (707)441-5553
The Humboldt Impropriety Society presents their first 18+ Social, Saturday, May 19
The Impropriety Society is thrilled to announce our first 18+ Society Social! We invite you to join us on May 19th 2012 from 8PM to2AM for "May I Have Another?"; a BDSM-oriented event complete with a large dungeon space and Dungeon Monitors who will help create a safe space for you to explore your most erotic and kinky fantasies…but wait, there's more!
We will start off the day offering an introduction to BDSM Society Salon that will provide excellent information, opportunities for open dialogue, chances to connect with other kinksters before the play event, and time to practice some fundamental principles and techniques. Details of this Salon are listed below (including the fact that there will be kinky vendors selling product!), and best of all, there is a discounted price if you attend the workshops and play event! As always, costumes and sexy clothing are never required but always encouraged. For this 18+ BDSM-oriented event, there is no alcohol permitted on the premises and intoxication is highly discouraged.
Tickets for the May I Have Another? event are $20 and are available at Good Relations in Eureka or online at www.humboldtimps.com. This is a 18+ event, ID required. Please read the Guidelines and Waiver as there have been recent changes to this document: http://www.humboldtimps.com/waiver.html
**BDSM 101 ~ A Society Salon**
We will begin this day of kinky delights with the BDSM 101 Society Salon. The first portion of the salon will include presentations and demonstrations by community members on practical BDSM topics such as bondage, sensation play, negotiation, safety considerations, aftercare, etc., with opportunity for questions and discussion. The second portion will be a presentation by author Deborah Addington and leather craftsman Lawrence L'Varado on the deeper psychological, emotional and sacred potentials of BDSM practice and D/s relationships with opportunity for Q&A.
The Salon is an 18+ event. It will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Eureka Women's Club (1531 J Street, Eureka). Doors will open at 11:30. Presentations begin at 12:00. Kinky vendors will be selling their wares from 11:30-12:00 and 3:00-3:30.

Is Philadelphia the most gay-friendly city in America?
I'm looking to fill my spot in a 6 bedroom, 3 bathroom house in Blue Lake. You would have your choice of 3 bedrooms upstairs. Beside your main bedroom, you would have full access to the other 2 empty rooms and the full bath. It's like having your own apartment... Downstairs is where the other 3 roommates bedrooms are located along with an additional common full bath. There is a large living room, kitchen, full laundry, dining area, fenced backyard with deck, and a very large detached garage. It's a very nice house and 3 friendly roommates who are all in their early twenties and working as professionals. All of which are queer... 2 females, 1 male. So you would have to be queer friendly. I don't have a set move out date which means I can work with what YOU need. Either ASAP or on the 1st... whatever. Two dogs currently live here so no more dogs. But a cat is more than welcome. It's $450 a month, plus split utilities including pg&e, water, internet, and dish. Works out to about $50 a month. There is a deposit and an extra $300 pet deposit. The house is located within walking distance of the casino, downtown, and the river. Email me with any questions or to set up a time to view the home at email@example.com.
