EARLY WINTER 2016/2017 / ISSUE 12
 
Hello,

Happy winter! What better way to warm up the season than partaking in enriching sex positive community experiences?

Also, I want to give a shout out to Karen Alicia for all the work they put into this issue of the newsletter! You would not be receiving this today / this week / (let's be realistic) in the near future if it weren't for them. That came out sounding like a threat, but I mean it as an appreciation!

Wishing you all the hot chocolate you desire,
Nicole Mazzeo
