Explore another life experience with Metro’s KINK event

Lou Reed’s not here, but if he were he’d be extending a personal invitation to Metro Inclusive Health’s Saturday fundraiser, KINK – An Art Affair, at the Metro Community Center in St. Petersburg.

Alongside specially-created works by 35 of the area’s top LGBTQ+ and ally artists, there’ll be erotic performers – from Florida Community Boot Black, Florida Leatherboy 2019, Electro and Impact Play, Male Review Tampa and more – and interactive fetish installations for the curious.

“Tasteful nudity” is on the menu as well (that means no exposed naughty bits). Guests are encouraged to “dress up or down in their fetish finest.”

“This definitely de-stigmatizes the perception many may have around the idea of S&M or body paint or roping or light paddling or anything like that, that we’ll be doing,” says Metro Chief Marketing and Experience Officer Brian Bailey. “Sometimes it’s an interest – and a way of life.”
