URGENT - Call InterContinental Hotel Group and Help Preserve Venues



Hey poly people, please help support this effort. Whether you're a kinky person or not, we're all in this together in terms of the people who oppose us and our choice to walk a different relationship path and/or choose an alternative, consensual means of sexual expression.

If you already heeded this call, please read on - your help is needed one more time. My understanding is that because InterContinental did not log all the calls received in support of the event in question, the number of recorded calls against it is much greater, and InterContinental is using this data to decide whether to continue to host adult-oriented events throughout its vast chain of hotels.

Thanks for taking action or continuing to do so! - Anita

Call InterContinental Hotel Group to Preserve our Venues

As more BDSM events come under attack by the religious political extremists, we need to be vigilant in maintaining good relations with our host hotels and their corporate headquarters. Please call InterContinental Hotel Group and tell them you're very glad they supported Winter Wickedness held at the Holiday Inn Worthington in Ohio this past weekend.

Winter Wickedness was a huge success with over 400 people holding firm in the face of adversity. This BDSM conference was affirmed legal and safe by both the local police department and the county health department. Though religious extremists tried to shut down the event, attendees reported a feeling of solidarity and community when faced with this outside threat, and as it became clear that we were winning, there was an extra relish in participating in an exciting and educational vent in spite of these attacks.

If you called InterContinental Hotel Group and the operator did not take your name and number, or if they didn't give you a confirmation code, then they did *not* log your call. Please call again! You don't have to give your name or contact info if you'd like to remain anonymous, but be sure to get a confirmation code.

Intercontinental Hotels Group Corporate Customer service line: 800-621-0555, then press option 1, then option 5.

Or send an email to: media@ihg.com Thank them for not discriminating against groups, and for being willing to face minor adversity for the sake of our freedom. It's very important to stand up for ourselves now! Thank you to everyone who called InterContinental Hotel Group - without you we wouldn't be able to hold our events.
