(No Cash Accepted at the Door!)
What is the topic this month?
If you have an interest in teaching at TNGM events, please contact @lexical! We're always working on finding more presenters for future workshops, so please visit the Workshop Poll thread and let us know what topics you'd like to see presented in the coming months!
Who can attend?
Anyone over the age of 18! Seriously, anyone***. Folks of all identities, orientations, expressions, genders, races, religions, abilities, and skill levels are welcome and encouraged to attend.
While TNGM Munches and Socials are only open to folks aged 18-35 and their partners, TNGM Educational Events and Play Parties are open to anyone over 18! That might seem a little weird, but remember - TNGM is intended to provide a safe, consent-conscious space for individuals to learn and grow amongst their peers, to link them to the community as a whole, and to provide them with support and resources as they explore kink, BDSM, leather, and other adjacent topics. In short, we want to be sure that TNGM provides a space for younger folks, while also enhancing the Madison kink community as a whole. Think of TNGM Munches and Socials as an opportunity to meet and build relationships with your peers and TNGM Educational Events and Play Parties as an opportunity to bring those friendships along as we contribute to the community at large. It's gonna be awesome.
***Attendance at the Freyja Project requires either membership or guesting in by a member. See below for more information!
How much does it cost?
The workshop itself is ONLY FIVE BUCKS! How amazing is that? You can attend JUST the workshop for FIVE DOLLARS, even if you are not a member of the Freyja Project! If you want to stay after the workshop for the play party, continue reading below! If you do want to attend both, a $15 day pass will get you into the workshop AND the play party that follows!
The Freyja Project offers membership access at an incredibly affordable $15 A YEAR. That's it! Just $15 dues for access all year long! That's bonkers. In order to attend events, members have two options: Monthly Access Passes ($35 - free entry to the majority of events hosted at the center) or Day Passes ($10-15 - entry to an individual event). In other words, if you plan to attend 2 or more events at the Freyja within one month, it's most cost effective to simply purchase a Monthly Pass.
Not a member of the Freyja Project? (I mean...Why not? Did I mention it's only $15 for the whole year?) Just wanna go one time to this awesome TNGM event (or one of many others held at the center? Not to worry. Just find a member to guest you in in advance (also $15)!
You can find detailed information about membership and sign up easily online with the Freyja Project's website.
What are the rules?
Here are the Rules and Guidelines governing TNGM events. Here is the Freyja Project's Code of Conduct. It is in your best interest to read these carefully so that you can respect them and your fellow community members. We reserve the right to remove anyone who is not acting within the bounds of these rules.
How do I get there?
TNGM First Fridays will be held at the Freyja Project, a private membership organization, club and community center. There is ample parking in the lot in front and in back of the building, including several accessible spaces.
If you don't have access to a vehicle, the 4, 5, and 12 buses will get you within walking distance to the club until about 7pm, because Madison Metro is a joke. I'm so sorry. After that, there are options, but they require a transfer. The 16 bus runs from nearby the club to the Square until about midnight. From the Square, Lyft or Uber will run you about $8-12.
What if I have other questions that aren't answered here?
Oh, that's easy! Just comment on this thread or contact group leadership via private message and we'll be happy to help.
See ya there!
