Ganymede & the film “Last Men Standing”
My beloved friend and peer Ganymede is one of 8 men who are featured in the Film “Last Men Standing”. I had the great good fortune of being with Ganymede and his family in March 2016 when the SanFrancisco Chronicle article featuring him and the film came out. We had a lovely dinner to celebrate this event, right before I left for the airport to return to Portland from the SF Bay.

Here is a slideshow of images and writing about Ganymede from the SF Chronicle article.
Although I had heard of his reputation for years I did not meet Ganymede in person for the first time until we both attended the Pendulum Gathering at Wolf Creek Radical Faerie Sanctuary in Sept 2014.
He was a main thrust of the creation of the “Black Leather Wings” group, Radical Fairies who engaged in and identified with BDSM and the Old Gods. Ganymede is a Pagan priest as well as a BDSm practitioner. He is also well known for teaching anal fisting workshops. I admire and resonate with his darkeness. We worship many of the same gods. What a Blessing to meet ancient friends again in the flesh.
