The Chicago Rope Social is a monthly event co-sponsored by Chicago Rope and Second City Kinbaku. It’s a community gathering where you can practice, meet new friends and play partners, and gain inspiration from others in the rope community. The Rope Social is open to all experience levels, and there’s no pressure to play. Feel free to watch, ask questions, or just socialize.
As with all Chicago Rope and Second City Kinbaku events, the Chicago Rope Social is a queer and trans inclusive space. For more information on what that means, see our policies and mission statement.
April's originally scheduled Discussion Panel on Switching: Rope from Both Sides has been postponed. Instead, we'll be offering a screening of a selection of short films on kinbaku, with a discussion following. This segment of the event will be offered free of charge as a service to the community. You are welcome to come just for the screening and discussion, or stick around for the social as well.
After the discussion, we’ll turn up the music and start playing! Feel free to bring food and your choice of non-alcoholic beverages.
