Celebrities/Famous Poly Role Models
Are there any well known celebrities (or celebrity couples) out there who are poly?
I've always been certain that Billy Connolly and Pamela Stephenson are poly, here's my reasons...
She's a doctor of psychology who specialised in Human sexuality and always comes across as very sex positive in interviews and such.
He once made a speech on Comic relief in about 2006 after a number of world tragedies had happened (including the Boxing Day Tsunami) - I've looked for it online and can't find it but his speech went something like "people say that they're having charity fatigue, I say that's bullshit!! That's like saying I have love fatigue or I don't have enough love to go around"
As I say I'm certain they're poly and I don't think I could find greater role models than them in terms of humour, intelligence, political inclinations or good willed nature. But I do wonder... are there others out there?
I can think of lots that had multiple loving relationships but whether they'd constitute ethical non monogamy is another thing. I mean, wives of celebrities have been known to "turn a blind eye" so I guess that's comparable to a DADT. Then I guess the Free Love era were totally open so celebs were probably forthcoming about non monogamy. I think the celeb who ticks all the poly boxes is Simon Cowell with his harem.

The two I know of are American comedian M'onique, and the actress Tilda Swinton.
Most of the others, I was aware of. Although it can be tricky to apply 'polyamory' to historical figures.
That was more of 'huh, really!' than a 'No way, you are incorrect!' comment from me. Your list is plausible. I'm trained as an historian so I always doubt applying modern concepts of love and relationships back in time but that's my own baggage.
Not sure if "Poly" is the best descriptor, but there's this letter Amelia Earhart wrote to her husband-to-be.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, apparently. Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman. And Ted Turner, Warren Buffett, Tilda Swinton, Margaret Cho...
