Welcome to the BDSM-Archives.org Project

The Leather Archives and Museum in Chicago has been instrumental in providing a centralized place for leather, gay and lesbian information, but to date there is no such place for heterosexuals. Several weeks ago, Mistress Michelle Peters and I were talking about the need to archive the information we have collected of the years into a centralized place for "The Next Generation".

Before the beginning of BackDrop forty-three years ago, I began collecting magazines, movies and other material related to BDSM.. I will readily admit to being a bibliophile - my library has grown to well over 16,000 volumes. I am also the author of www.sm-201.org, a 12,000+ article, Wikipedia style website about BDSM

-- What we want to do --

  • To have a "museum" of sorts to house a collection of memorabilia about BDSM and "The Good Old Days".

  • We intend to provide a place for learning about all Alternative Lifestyles, but with a central emphasis on heterosexual BDSM.

  • We intend to find space where we can house everything, and have space for meetings and educational events, etc.

  • We also intend to have several knowledgeable "docents" to help people learn about BDSM and how to play safely.

  • We also wish to have several people help people outside the scene understand "WIITWD" (What it is that we do)

-- To get things going --

  • We have already filed Articles of Incorporation in the State of California. (click here to read .pdf file)

  • We are currently in the throes of creating a tax-exempt, non-profit corporation to actually provide the infrastructure for handling the day-to-day operations of such an organization.

  •  Robin Roberts has loaned his entire library to act as a cornerstone for this new venture.

  • We will asking for donations at the 2010 Folsom Street Fair.

  • We, the people at The BackDrop Club, have decided to donate a portion of the proceeds from our events to help support the BDSM-Archives project.

We are currently accepting any and/or all gifts to breathe life into the organization. Anyone wishing  to donate time, money. books, CD's, DVD's tapes, movies (or any other media) clothing, props, or anything else related to Alternative Lifestyles, please drop me a e-mail at Robin@HSAL-INC.org for more information,
or call Robin at the BackDrop Club office at 650-965-4499.

We already have place for you, the individual, to add your experiences to the Archives as well.<click here>
