Hi. I am new to everything under the sun on a daily basis. This summer's sun has seen me expand my dating repertoire to dabbling with polyamory. I had no clue that I was poly until this summer. This despite having had multiple simultaneous lovers, sometimes in different cities, sometimes in the same city. But I met someone who rocked me. I thought we would just be friends, because he was poly and I was not, but then I found out what poly meant, and discovered that I had been all along.

I identify strongly as queer, since 2005, when someone first asked me during a political campaign. Before that my sexual orientation had nothing to do with my identity, though if someone were to have asked me "What's your sexual preference?" I would have said "I don't have one." I am attracted to cisgendered women and men, and though I've mostly been with men, I have been in love with a woman or 2. I am attracted to transgendered women and men. I am attracted to everyone in between.

My current partner is a cis-man who is in serious relationships with 2 other people, one of which is long-term. I am not currently with anyone else, though I am dating. We bump around the intersection of poly, queer, radical, activist, kink, burner, et al scenes here, in this city (lots of urban gardens and tattoos). Literally sometimes, because its hella rocky terrain and hard to see around corners. Collision abound.
