Wink Denver Metro Polyamory Group - DMPG

The Denver Metro Polyamory Group!

The DMPG is open to all Polyamorous, Poly-Friendly, open-minded people interested in polyamory, poly relationships, or the poly lifestyle. (We are GLBTQ and P friendly, and the poly-curious are welcome). The group encourages member involvement and hosts regular discussion groups and events with a focus on creating a poly community.

The DMPG membership has a strong desire to build friendships and interact directly so online activity is usually minimal.

Founded in November 2009, the DMPG currently consists of over 300 active members representing a variety of ages, races, orientations, and lifestyles. Anyone open-minded and poly-friendly is welcome to attend any of our events and be as involved in the group as they desire.

Since inception the DMPG and its members have held over 158 meetings and events. That’s an event at least every other week!

Though we call ourselves a group, the DMPG is much more than that. Managed with the intent of creating a support network and community for those identifying as polyamorous in the Denver Metro Area, to many of us the DMPG is as much a family as it is a social network.

What we do…
The DMPG currently enjoys a variety of activities:

Monthly discussion meetings. Anonymously submitted member questions and topics are discussed in depth in a lightly moderated forum welcoming participation from everyone.

Monthly focused discussion meetings. Lectures, presentations, and poly focused topic specific discussions, some with guest speakers, in a relaxing setting. Some past meetings: Polyamory 101, Flirting 101, Intimacy Presentation, Non-violent Communication.

Bi-monthly poly mixer. Meeting at a local pub for an evening of socializing and games. This is a great opportunity to come out and be yourself in a relaxed setting where you can meet other polyamorous people.

Bi-monthly group parties. Themed parties at a local club for dinner, drinks, dancing and more. Past events have included a Luau, Pajama Party, and Holiday Party.

DMPG Game Night. Members join together monthly to enjoy a variety of games from simple to complex in a friendly, opening environment over food and drinks. Everyone is encouraged to bring their favorite game!

DMPG Writer’s Group. Meeting monthly, the group focuses on growing writing skills with practices, exercises, exchange of ideas, critiques, support, encouragement, and discussion.

DMPG Treasury. The DMPG enjoys a healthy group Treasury funded by anonymous, voluntary donations from members and fund raising. Managed by the group Treasurer, financial activity is exposed for review by all members and supports group functions as well as the following groups specifically.

DMPG Book Club. Meeting monthly the club reads and discusses polyamory related texts such as: The Ethical Slut, Stranger in a Strange Land, The Fifth Agreement which are purchased for use as needed by the DMPG Treasury.

DMPG Library. We enjoy a group Library which contains poly related books, magazines, and CD’s. Books purchased and used by the DMPG Book Club are donated to the Library once the Book Club has completed their review. We also enjoy donations from individuals and organizations. Library contents are presented online for ease of access by members and maintained by two volunteer Librarians.

Other events… Our members love talking about Polyamory, meeting with other polyamorists, and meeting new members! There are often other events such as: Poly Newbie Discussion, Sunday Afternoon Tea, summer BBQ’s, brunches, hot springs trips, festivals, camping and more!

The DMPG enjoys relationships with local groups such as Loving More and others.
