Street Festival XXI Celebrating S.L.U.T.S.
Throughout history we queers have been known to celebrate and reclaim the words that the outside world has thrown at us. This year we are excited to celebrate what we believe S.L.U.T.S to stand for and encourage discussion and discourse to challenge the idea that sex positive is a negative or harmful thing. Sex, Love, Unity, Trust and Safety are all components of who we are, especially to the Leather, Kink and Fetish communities, and we want to celebrate that. Call it out! Join us on the 27th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues on June 17, 2018 from 11-6pm.

She is also the companion human to a rescued pit bull named Sister Patterson Grace.

Currently, she reigns as Queen of the New York Leathermen, sits on the board of directors of Folsom Street East, and is one of the co-founders of Kaleidoscope Collaborations, which has made more than $25,000 in grants since its inception in 2015.
She produces several shows each year for local charities, including her annual “Broads & Bawds Show” in January and her annual 39th Birthday Party every July. She produced and hosted “The Gayest Link” at Hannah’s Lava Lounge and has been a regular performer and guest host at “The Will Clark Show, featuring Porno Bingo.” As a headliner, Witti has performed at Folsom Street East and the DC Pride Festival, and been lauded by gala audiences not only in NYC, but also in Washington DC, Lexington, Kentucky, Anchorage, Alaska, Chicago, Illinois, Hartford, Connecticut and San Francisco, California. As a hostess, she counts the Ninth and Tenth “Bad Boys on the Hudson” cruises, New York’s Leather Pride Night XXX and XXXI, Folsom Street East XVII and XX, North East Puppy and Handler Contests in 2016 and 2017, Halloween at the New York Eagle (2013- present), and countless fundraisers, special events and performances in HIV residences among her accomplishments.
