On Sunday March 4th the London Alternative Market celebrated its first birthday by making the Spanner Trust the nominated "good cause" of the day. Together the event, stallholders and customers raised over £2,000 for the Trust, which is a phenomenal achievement. We are very grateful to everyone present for their generosity. There's a list of businesses which donated raffle prizes and information about the work of the Trust in our latest newsletter - which you can see by clicking here.

Someone I've met many times in my travels is SM educator and sexual freedom activist Glenda Rider. (Once, she even won me for an evening after I was auctioned for charity in New Orleans, but that's another story...) Glenda has served on the boards of the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom and the Leather Leadership Conference, taught classes in SM at more events than she can remember, and recently became the promoter of the International Ms Leather contest, which will be held this year from the 5th to 8th April. She has taken time out of her busy schedule to answer the following questions:

Have fun, look after yourselves and the people you play with.

Best wishes,
