All get together
Happened across this in a YH poly group. Thought someone else might be interested so passing it on !
You can plan anything you want, from tea for a few, to a family potluck evening, to a BBQ with circus clowns and adults-only revels. The default is to have it be a fundraiser for Loving More and/or the Canadian Polyamory Advocacy Association (which is involved in a constitutional court case), and/or the poly group of your choice (leave a hat out for people to drop cash or checks). Or it can skip the fundraising altogether.
It does have to be publicly announceable on the website once you hit SAVE -- though if you have a number limit, you could ask for RSVPs and cut it off at your limit.
This could be fun and great outreach. Modern Poly intends it to be the start of an annual or semi-annual celebration coordinated worldwide, perhaps with live computer hookups.
Anyone can pick up this ball -- fill out the online form to create an event.
Polyamory in the News
From Modern Poly:
The first EVER international DIY poly festival, Poly House Party Weekend, is only a month away: June 3-5, 2011! We want to see people hosting all kinds of events that weekend to celebrate polyamory, across the world!
This is the first time an international DIY festival celebrating polyamory has ever been attempted. If we do this right, Polys globally will spend the weekend building and nurturing their communities, raising funds for the... Movement, and raising awareness about our culture and relationship preference.
*Throw a party! (this can be a movie night, game night, picnic, barbecue, play party, dance party, keg party, a nice dinner... anything goes!)
*Open it to the community! Post it on our site so polys in your area can find it:
You'll fill out some simple info about your party, and get an event page that local polys can find by zipcode and tags, so you can grow your community by meeting the people interested in the kind of experience you want to create!
*Or, come find a party for Poly House Party Weekend on our site!
Pro-tip: Use it to plan your weekend of revelry if your city has a lot going on. Or, if your city doesn't seem to have enough to suit your taste, bug your poly friends and get them to make an event too! After all, we're poly-- the more the merrier!
We can't wait to celebrate with you.
