Polyamory in the News: latest roundup

I’m really looking forward to the Poly Living conference coming up February 10-12 in Philadelphia. But meanwhile… time for another news roundup.

Newt Gingrich brings a burst of opportunities for people to tell the world about their non-Gingrichy open relationships, the kind built on caring and support all around. Mainstream TV presents several long-term triad families explaining their way of life, plus a fictional one doing the same. Next Gen poly, on and off campus. Dan Savage invites readers to “Meet the Monogamish.”

Polyamory in the News: How the world is seeing us

Hi folks! Another season, another news roundup....

Dear Abby treats us like normals, almost. Promoting a poly event in the mainstream media with brains and cute overload. Obliterating a clueless mental-health professional. TV done right. Next-generation voices, teenage and up. And, “with their heads on their shoulders, they create their own identity using tools 2.0.” (That’s supposed to be us.)

Listings of UPCOMING POLY EVENTS and LOCAL POLY GROUPS

Folks,

I've created a new website, ALAN'S LIST of POLYAMORY EVENTS:
http://polyevents.blogspot.com

These are all the major poly cons, festivals, gatherings, etc. coming up in the next 12 months, as far as I know. I think the list is pretty complete, at least for the English-speaking world. There are now 13 events on the list through July 2012 -- with descriptions and sometimes my commentary when I've been to one of these or know people who have.

ALSO: At the bottom of the page are five resource lists of LOCAL POLY GROUPS worldwide, sorted by location -- making it easy to find the local group(s) in your backyard, with their own meetings and happenings.

Instructions for how to suggest new listings are on the page.

I intend to keep the site updated and current forever. (I hope I've got another 30 good years ahead, and before I go I'll try to hand off the job to someone else.)

Please link to this and pass it on.

This project is an outgrowth of my other site, POLYAMORY IN THE NEWS:
http://polyinthemedia.blogspot.com

... which I've been running for six years now.

Enjoy!

Polyamory in the News: How the world is seeing us.

In Washington, a U.S. Senate committee hears about the polyamory threat to America. “The New Monogamy,” i.e. non-monogamy, takes off in the mainstream media. Polyamorous polygamists file a legal challenge in federal court and could actually win. Triads and quads “redefining love’s boundaries” are featured on TV evening news.

Poly in the recent news

A parenting magazine presents polyamory as a logical alternative. TV news goes all awkward covering a Loving More convention. Dan Savage as America’s most important sex ethicist. New poly books. More on campus. And, how to frame the emergence of polyamory as the natural outcome of the last several centuries of human development.
