Traditionally these all male 'leather' clubs have avoided any sort of campaigning but things look set to change.
During the AGM the Secretary was given new powers to act as a combined voice for ECMC on relevant human rights issues. MSC Finland stunned the meeting by saying they had come out as an SM organisation on national television. Kellan Farshea gave a spirited defence of why Coundown on Spanner organised events like SM Pride. He received overwhelming support from the 100+ delegates.
Several ECMC member clubs have already raised funds for the Spanner case (SLM Stockholm, Loge 70, FLC Frankfurt, Sussex Lancers, Severn Link MSC, Midland Link) - now we hope the rest of them, especially the UK clubs, will want to follow their lead.
