The DomCon Second Line Parade in The French Quarter
The DomCon Second Line Parade takes place in New Orleans and follows a custom unique to the city.
It isn’t a typical parade with floats and giant balloons because it began with funeral processions. The “first line” being the deceased’s family members followed by the “second line” of mourners carrying parasols for sun protection and handkerchiefs for drying their tears.
Traditionally, as they left the cemetery the jazz brass band played a sad dirge, then broke out into joyful music celebrating life, as the mourners pranced and waved their parasols and hankies. Now, second line parades are held for any occasion, including weddings, and anyone on the street is welcome to join in the revelry as everyone dances to being alive.
The DomCon Second Line Parade begins with mourning ProDom/mes who have recently passed away, then everyone struts their stuff around the French Quarter streets along with a full police escort, band, Grand Marshall, and Parade Queen.
This is our chance to honor those we have lost, and to live life to the fullest with our community…in high style.
Fetish wear, formal or casual attire is appropriate as are masks, for anonymity. However, in the spirit of consensuality, we ask that you leave the toys, leashes, and play for the play party afterward.
This year the Parade is Sponsored by FetPros and Simone Justice.

The Pro Domination Social is limited to those working as a Domina, Switch or submissive working in the Professional Domination Industry ONLY.

What is It?
DomCon-nections is a “speed-meeting” event, mean to help people find potential play partners, for a night, the weekend, or longer. It’s not just for singles; anyone interested in meeting people will enjoy it! you are on the dominant or submissive end of the BDSM spectrum you will want to play.
The DomCon-nection is a fun event designed to help DomCon attendees meet, get to know one another, make new friends, playdates, or more. The event is modeled after the popular “speed-dating” concept, but not restricted to singles. Anyone wanting to make connections with folks on the other end of the spectrum are welcome to participate. Since being introduced a few years ago by Mistress Ellen, more than 40 attendees now participate, so get there early and get your seat! Attendance and participation is limited to capacity of the room.
Each dominant (or submissive) who participates will get to have a brief 1-on-1 conversation with every submissive (or dominant) who participates. After each conversation, they will discreetly mark down whether or not they’re interested in the other. At the end of the event, we’ll match up interested dominants and submissives, and it’s up to them what happens from there.
This is a great way to meet people you might not otherwise meet. New to DomCon? Meet people who can show you the ropes. Shy? This is your chance to talk to those people you only admire from afar! Ready to try something new? Here’s your opportunity to find somebody who wants to try it with you. Don’t miss it.
