"Because all people are very important people"
From the NCSF Website
"The NCSF is committed to creating a political, legal and social environment in the US that advances equal rights for consenting adults who engage in alternative sexual and relationship expressions. The NCSF aims to advance the rights of, and advocate for consenting adults. We pursue our vision through direct services, education, advocacy, and outreach, in conjunction with our partners, to directly benefit these communities. Our KAP program allows professionals who are friendly to BDSM, swing and poly individuals to list themselves as "kink friendly." It serves as a resource for people to self-refer for help from therapeutic, legal and other professionals who will not prejudge based on the consensual adult activities of our constituents."
