July 28 - 30, 2023
Southwest Decadence is a new, decadent experience rooted in sex, spirituality, kink, leather, and community. We honor the legacy of leather folx and the contributions they have made and move forward in celebration of all people under the BDSM/ LGBTQIA+ umbrella.
Join us for engaging social opportunities, a formal dinner, meditation and rituals room, a hot bootblack lounge, extended dungeon hours, skills and panel based educational opportunities, exciting entertainment, and much more. In the spirit of decadence, the private conference center allows for a myriad of spicy shenanigans. The weekend will conclude with the much revered Dance Of Souls. There will be no formal title contests and no lengthy awards ceremonies….leaving more time for debauchery and camaraderie
In February of 2022 the Southwest Decadence team started compiling elements for our logo. It took us many months and many iterations of different designs. One day we saw an ornate hair fascinator from a local steampunk artist with a heart jewel as the center. That became our inspiration. We began carefully curating every element of the design.
The Feathers were chosen to pay respect and honor the twenty-two indigenous tribes that were stewards of the land, enriching the soil, and building a spiritual vibration that runs throughout the state. We honor the Ak-Chin Indian Community, Cocopah Indian Tribe, Colorado River Indian Tribes, Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, Fort Mojave Indian Tribe, Gila River Indian Community, Havasupai Tribe, Hopi Tribe, Hualapai Tribe, Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians, Pascua Yaqui Tribe, Pueblo of Zuni, Quechan Tribe, Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, San Carlos Apache Tribe, San Juan Southern Paiute Tribe, Tohono O’Odham Nation, Tonto Apache Tribe, White Mountain Apache Tribe, Yavapai-Apache Nation, and Yavapai-Prescott Indian Community.
The Inter-Tribal Council of Arizona, a 21 Tribe Nation, has education and resources about the robust Indigenous community of Arizona.
