CCK pronounced "symbolic"
The Skin Two Year Book, the "Bible" of the kinky world, rounds up the story of CCK to date and our "symbolic value, which is significant beyond the establishment itself". It proceeds to explore the concept of collective identity, CCK's function as "a community centre", and "a very special social space that connected cutting-edge erotic culture with day-to-day functionality and community 'outreach' activities where people made important discoveries about themselves and life. CCK was a "world that was embracing and went beyond mere 'tolerance', to acceptance. A world that was life-affirming and expansive and, to some, transformative".
