Yep. We spoke privately with each of the important people in our life. Mostly it was as simple as,
"mom/dad/whoever, I'm in an open-relationship called polyamorous (if you want more info google it). GG is LR's boyfriend, Maca is LR's husband. We're happy, the kids know, life is good. We are only telling you because we love you and don't want you to feel like we are intentionally keeping you out of the loop in case you hear from the kids."
A few questions were asked. We answered them to the best of our ability and on we went with life.

That said-others have had traumatic experiences with coming out-we just aren't them.

As for people in the community, we hold hands, kiss, hug and live together. If they don't want to see it-they turn a blind eye. If they ask WTF, we answer honestly.
