- Who Is "NELA"?
- NELA is an organization dedicated to making a safe place in the world for all leather/fetish/SM people through education, advocacy, and charitable giving. NELA stands for New England Leather Alliance, and we were formerly known as NLA: New England. We are an incorporated non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the support, education, and political organizing of the leather/fetish/SM/bondage communities in New England. We are a diverse, pansexual group of adults who share a common interest in Leather, S/M, or similar fetishes (bondage, spanking, etc.) and who want to be active in building our community. We are women and men, transgendered folk, heterosexual, bisexual, and homosexual, married and single, young and old. We are from MA, NH, CT, ME, RI & VT. We support the statements of purpose of NLA:I and apply them to local issues. We host local events every month such as classes and outings, produce the semi-annual Fetish Fair Fleamarket, publish this newsletter and more.
- What does "NLA" stand for?
- NLA stands for National Leather Association. NELA is a regional chapter of the overarching international association now known as NLA: International. The statements of purpose of NLA:I are on the back of this brochure and are, in short, to support the leather community, provide education and public awareness, and fight for the rights of consenting adults to express their sexuality in safe, sane, and consensual manners. Among other things, the NLA provides resources to chapters like ours such as educational videos, contact with national speakers, and networking opportunities with activists around the US and Canada.
- When Does NELA Meet?
- We do not have one set meeting time and place. Instead, we sponsor a different event every month, sometimes a workshop or class, sometimes an outing or social event. We often bring guest speakers in from as far as Toronto and San Francisco. Past meeting topics have included Japanese rope bondage, bullwhip use, making your own dungeon toys, and caning. We sponsor community meetings, activist roundtables, and planning sessions. We have run leather trivia contests and hosted bondage video nights. The event calendar is published in The Scarlet Leather, is available on our Web Site, and can be checked at our hotline message number (617) 876-NELA (6352)
- Where Does NELA Meet? Is it safe?
- Our events are held in a number of locations in the Boston area, including Grand Opening Boutique, the Boston Ramrod (Boston's oldest and best leather bar), the Boston Living Center, the Boston Center for the Arts, and even in private homes. We strive for safe, community-inclusive venues. We try to be T-accessible and easy to get to by car, as well.
- What Else Does NELA Do?
- Among other things, we sponsor and run the semi-annual Fetish Fair Fleamarket®, the largest leather/fetish event in New England, which happens in July and January. We bring together a hundred top vendors and craftspeople from our local area and from as far away as San Francisco, Arizona, Chicago, and Canada. Thousands attended our last FFF to enjoy the unmatched opportunity to shop and meet people. We also sponsor and organize the Boston Pride Leather Contingent, whereby we invite smaller or financially disadvantaged groups of leather folk (who would not otherwise be able to register or march) to march in the annual Boston Pride parade in one loud, proud section. We host other special events from time to time, including special parties, demo nights, titleholder evenings, and more.
- We have a charitable fund that supports the efforts of groups like The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom and GLAD (Gay and Lesbian Advocates & Defenders), and persecuted individuals in our community fighting for their legal rights to express their sexuality. Over the past five years we have given over $20,000 in charitable donations. We take part in efforts to educate the public and to fight for laws that protect our rights to love in the manner that we choose as consenting adults.
- What's The Scarlet Leather?
- The Scarlet Leather is our newsletter that comes out quarterly. It includes not only important chapter news like upcoming events, but also a calendar of New England events, information on other local groups, national and international leather news, legal advice, how-to tips, reviews of books and videos, and other information of interest to our members. The Scarlet Leather welcomes submissions of articles, poetry, reviews, etc.

Vending Hours 11-6
The Saunders Castle at Park Plaza
130 Columbus Avenue, Boston
- The subway system in Boston is the MBTA, called "The T."
BY T FROM THE BOSTON AREA:
- The hotel is located one short block from the Arlington T stop on the Green Line. Take any train to Park Street Station. From there, take any Outbound Green Line Train (B, C, D, or E) two stops. The second stop is Arlington. As you come up into the station from the platform level, head to your right and follow the signs to Park Plaza to exit close to the hotel. The hotel is right there, at the corner of Arlington Street and St. James Street.
- FROM THE AIRPORT:
- You have three choices from the airport:
- the T (subway) for $1
- an airport shuttle for $9
- taxi cab for $15-$20 (depending on traffic)
- BY T FROM THE AIRPORT
- Get on the free bus marked "Airport T Station" at any terminal. The bus will drop you off at the Blue Line T station. From the Airport T stop, take the Blue Line inbound to Government Center, and change to the Green Line. Take any car headed toward Park Street, and ride through Park Street, through Boylston Street, and exit at Arlington Street. Follow walking directions above.
- BY SHUTTLE VAN FROM AIRPORT
- Many different companies run continuous shuttles from the airport. Take any van that says "DOWNTOWN HOTELS" or "BOSTON HOTELS" for $9. Just tell the driver "Park Plaza" and they will deliver you to the hotel's door. These vans make multiple stops, so you might stop at other hotels first. These same vans can return you to the airport and pick up from the hotel every half hour, with no reservations needed.
- BY TAXI FROM THE AIRPORT
- Cab fare will vary depending on the traffic and time of the ride, but will generally be between $14 and $20. Tell your driver "Boston Park Plaza Hotel." It's a very well-known hotel and that should be all you have to say. Note: not all taxis in Boston are equipped to take credit cards.
- PARKING INFORMATION
- Parking at the hotel is expensive, as it is most places in Boston. If you are staying over at the hotel, valet parking is $32/day, self-parking at the Motor Mart garage across the street from the hotel is $24/day.

- The Boston Park Plaza hotel is one of the grande dames of Boston hotels. Built in 1927, and formerly a Statler hotel, the Park Plaza is centrally located in downtown Boston right by the Boston Common, close walking distance to the Theater District, Newbury Street shops, historic Beacon Hill, and Chinatown. The hotel has been undergoing renovation, and features newly redone handicapped accessible rooms, elegant ballrooms, and a multitude of small meeting rooms on the 4th floor. The hotel houses five restaurants within it, from the quick eats at Au Bon Pain to Todd English's five star "Bonfire," from the dark wood comfort of seafood restaurant McCormick & Schmicks to afternoon tea at the Swan Court.
- The Armory was planned, constructed and financed by the First Corps of Cadets, a Massachusetts military organization established in 1741. The Armory is the only remaining High Victorian armory in the City of Boston and a designated National Historic Landmark. The Castle has hosted some of Boston's most exclusive events throughout the years.

We would also like to thank MOB for being our new catering company. We would also like to thank Rickdom and Mirage Studio for putting together this program book. Also a thank you to all the individuals who has donated much of their time to make this event happen. Thank you to the Boston Park Plaza Hotel for all the accommodations. We are proud to have you as our flea's new home! Thank you to Wolffdream for the use of all the wonderful photos (the one on the cover looks fantastic.) A big thank you to all the vendors, especially those who offer discounts to NELA associates. We appreciate your time and travel to make our lives and our nights more interesting! And last but not least, thanks to all of you for making this the biggest summer fetish event in New England. Hope to see you again on January 9th-11th, 2004 at Fetish Fair Fleamarket® 22.

A welcome letter from the Organization:
- Welcome everyone, to the New England Leather Alliance's 21st Fetish Fair Fleamarket®. It is our pleasure to have you in this wonderful neww location — the Castle at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel. NELA has wanted to be here for quite some time and we finally made it! We are all very excited and hope this space serves the community well. We offer a few new vendors and some old favoriites and overall there is more than the usual to choose from, thanks to the in- creased size of the Castle, NELA gives out a big thank you to the Park Plaza for having us in this terrific builing.
- I'd like to draw everyone's attention for a minute to the recent Supreme Court decision in Law- rence v. Texas. Quite suprinsingly, the court, in a vote of 6 to 3 struck down the previous sod- omy law (Bowers v Hardwick, 1986), as an unconstitutional invasion of privacy and that by sin- gling out gay people, it violates the Constitution's guarantee of equal protection under the law. "The state cannot demean their existence or control their destiny by making their private sexual conduct a crime," Justice Kenedy wrote, according to a report from The Associated Press.
- Folks, this is not just about gay sex. This issue has extremely important ramifications for ALL consenting adults and their right to engage in whatever consensual acts of sexual expression they so desire. It applies to all lesbians, bisexuals, gay men, heterosexuals and kinky people. Regardless of how you identify — male, female, both, transgendered, butch, top, bottom, heavy player, occasional silk ties and fur paddles, anniversary bondage or full time 24/7 slave... we have the right to do whatever turns us on, however often, or infrequently, we choose to do it.
- It is my sincere hope that watershed moments like this one will help us understand that we are all in this together. The legal, political and social climate will only get better if we recognize our common obstacles and work as a team.
- Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.
- Please check out our website for exiting fall events. There are upcoming first aid and CPR trainings, a new BDSM and Trangenered monthly discussion group, and a trip to Social Eyes in Rhode Island. We are always working on new projects and could use your help. Volunteer a few hours, help stuff a newsletter, write an article, teach a class, come to events, tell you friehds, join NELA, be part of an active SM/leather/fetish group.
- And for today, enjoy the Flea. Have fun. RELAX. Shop. Look. Meet. Learn. If you feel pressure to do something you do not want to do, don't do it. Take it easy. Do things on your own terms. It's your life, your body and your soul – enjoy it, explore it, live it.

- There are many Transgender people (Transgender, Transexual, Gender Queer, Cross dresser, Gender Variant and more) that attend the Fetish Fair Fleamarket® and/or Masquerade Ball.
- People who are transgender and/or whose gender identity or expression does not conform to stereotypes of male or female often face discrimination and harassment, particularly when accessing public spaces, events, and restrooms. To be inclusive and improve the quality of life for Transgender people here, please read and act upon the following:
- One way of acknowledging Transgender people’s needs is to both designate restrooms that are gender-neutral and also to allow people to use the genderdesignated restroom that they identify with. In public restrooms, many Transgender people face harassment that can lead to anything from deep discomfort to arrest or murder. Regardless of what restroom you are in, please let everyone use the restroom in peace. Each of us can decide for ourselves in which restroom we belong.
- A person’s external appearance may not match their internal gender identity. You cannot always know the gender or sex of someone by their physical body, voice, appearance or mannerisms. It is best to ask, “What pronoun do you prefer?” or “How do you identify?” before using pronouns or gendered words. In group situations where you don’t have an opportunity to ask someone what words they prefer, try using gender-neutral phrases like “the person in the red shirt,” instead of “that woman or man.”
- Privacy and respect for all participants
- Please respect transgender people’s privacy and boundaries and do not ask unnecessary questions. If someone discloses they are transgender please do not “out” that person to other people. The transgender person may feel comfortable coming out to you, but may not wish to be out to other people.
- Not all who attend the Fetish Fair Fleamarket® are out about their interest in SM. Please respect people’s privacy and do not out people you may meet or see here at the Fetish Fair Fleamarket® and/or Masquerade Ball.
