For the second year I will be part of this wonderful event.   Here is my new art for my table! 

Vampire Society – a better way of uniting the real vampire community.

Can the Vampire Community be united and still allow for individuality?   Quite so!  Welcome to the Vampire Society. 

 

The Vampire Society is the brain child of the Imperator of the Vampire Court of Houston, Michael Vachmiel.   Vachmiel, or Vach, seeing the bullying and trolling culture that was plaguing the global vampire community decided to take his professional management skills and apply it to the world of the vampire.   

A New Veil?

 

Vachmiel has crafted a new set of social rules for the modern real vampire that are the guiding principles of the Vampire Society. 

No trolling
No bullying 
No sexual harassment
No discrimination based on sex, religion, sexual orientation or sexual expression so long it is among consenting adults. 
Black Swans and Vampires are equal in the eyes of the Society. 
There is no one truth path to being a real vampire.  
Respect the right of other Courts, Houses, Orders, Covens and the like to self govern, so long as they do not abuse their members. 

How does the Vampire Society Work?

 

The Vampire Society is an alliance of Courts, Covens, Houses, Orders, Independents, and Ronin who want fellowship, safety in the strength of numbers,  and enjoy being part of a larger whole, BUT STILL WANT TO SELF GOVERN AND NOT BE LORDED OVER!   That is the difference between the Vampire Society and others!  You carry your flag first!   

How much does it cost to be part of the Vampire Society? 

NOTHING!  EVER! 

 

Michael Vachmiel calls himself Imperator?   Is he the “Emperor” of Vampires in the Society? 

 

No.  Vach’s title, like all vampire titles, are honorifics within their own domains.   Vach’s role within the VS is to help promote the society, bring new members in,  help create fun activities, educational articles, mediate disputes between members, and keep the organization flowing smoothly. 

Who is in the Vampire Society Now? 

Vampire Court of Houston

Vampire Court of Chicago 

Grand Rapids Court of Vampires

Vampire Court of Oakridge

Updated – July 14th – Jacksonville Vampire – Hidden City Vampire Court

How can I add my group to the Vampire Society as an Ally? 

Just message Vach! 

Vach will be more than happy to discuss an alliance with you! 

 

Do you have a chat page so I can get to know you first? 

 

Of course!

Legislate This! began in Austin, TX as a reaction to the perils of having Rick Perry as our governor. Tired of feeling marginalized and looked down upon for having a vagina, Ginger Snaps decided to fight back the best way she knew how, by hosting a fundraiser!

“I decided that since I couldn’t just follow Rick Perry around flipping him off, this was the next best thing!”

Occasionally creativity wins out above immaturity, and that’s how great events are born! Over the past couple of years Legislate This has raised thousands of dollars for Planned Parenthood chapters across the country and we’re excited to continue this momentum!
