Kinky Friday - Gender Bending and Blending

May is coming, and with Spring comes re-birth, re-envisioning, and new beginnings! And with that in mind, Her Majesty Queen Pea & Mistress Mara are choosing GENDER BENDING & BLENDING as the theme for this KF. Because at at KF (and in our own lives) we believe that you can be *anything* you want to be, you should be able to express your most authentically, and that as the seasons shift, *we* can also shift. We can shift our definition of ourselves, we can shift how we present ourselves in the world, and we can shift our immediate surroundings. Choices are all around us!!
