Welcome to The Red Chair

Serving Central Alabama’s BDSM Alternative Lifestyle Community

The Red Chair (TRC for short) is Alabama’s oldest organization dedicated to meeting the needs of those who choose alternative lifestyles. We do this through education, service, networking and advocacy, with regular meetings, events and classes. This provides a safe setting within which individuals can meet and learn from one another. We are proud to be a Coalition Partner of the National Coalition of Sexual Freedom (NCSF).

New members are encouraged to start by attending munches, which are usually held two evenings each month. Use the contact form to get more information on the time and place, and we will reply promptly. We look forward to meeting you.

Our Mission Statement:

“We are a group dedicated to providing education and support for adults that practice alternative lifestyles, particularly the BDSM lifestyle. We provide this via educational seminars, lectures, group discussions, and freeform meetings. We welcome all sexual orientation, consensual relationships, and safe/sane/consensual BDSM practices without discrimination.”

Munches are casual, vanilla-dress events that anyone can attend. Most other events are for members only.
