Hard at Work to Defend Your Rights The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF) was formed in 1997 by a small group led by Susan Wright under the auspices of the New York SM Activists. The goal was to fight for sexual freedom and privacy rights for all adults who engage in safe, sane and consensual behavior. The first five organizations who joined reflected our desire to be a nationwide organization: National Leather Association—International Gay Male S/M Activists The Eulenspiegel Society Black Rose Society of Janus   Today, NCSF has over 50 Coalition Partners who elect the board that runs NCSF, and establish our goals at the annual Coalition Partners meeting. Coalition Partners are groups and businesses who serve BDSM, swing and polyamory practitioners and also support NCSF by holding an annual fundraiser. NCSF also has over 50 Supporting Members – groups and businesses that support NCSF. Over the years, NCSF has formed alliances with other organizations that defend sexual freedom rights: Free Speech Coalition, the ACLU, American Association of Sex Educators Councilors and Therapists, Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, and the Gay and Lesbian Activist Alliance, among others.   First 5 Years: 1997-2001 1997 NCSF formed as a sexual freedom advocacy organization directed by 5 BDSM groups. 1997–2017 Launched Incident Response program to directly help people who are being discriminated against for being kinky. 1997–2017 Launched Media Outreach Project and began giving interviews to educate about BDSM, and training people to speak to the media about sex and BDSM. 1997-2017 Launched the Media Updates to track BDSM in the media and to alert constituents to write in to media outlets to correct the stereotypes. 1997-1998 Conducted a national survey on Violence and Discrimination against BDSM practitioners. 1998-2017 Assisted multiple communities throughout the U.S. related to event and venues being shut down, criminal prosecutions and pressure on hotels not to host BDSM or kink events. 1998-2017 Developed Resource Materials for individuals and groups related to child custody and job discrimination. 1998-2017 Began presenting at professional conferences: Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality; American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists; World Congress on Sexuality; Creating Change; Gay and Lesbian Medical Association. 1999 Won Pantheon’s Best Non-Profit Organization of the Year Award for 1999. 1999-2000 Lobbied to change the alcohol regulations in DC to allow BDSM and sex in venues serving alcohol. 2000-2017…
