Tom, Matt and Katherine in TIME magazine!

The current Time Magazine (dated August 6th) has a 4-page article on polygamists seeking recognition that also goes out of its way to tell about polyamory. In that regard it highlights (very favorably) Matt, Tom, and Katherine of Poly Boston.

The full article is not online except for paper-issue subscribers, but I've excerpted the poly-relevant parts here:

Congrats for handling the media well!

Polyamory in the News: latest roundup

I’m really looking forward to the Poly Living conference coming up February 10-12 in Philadelphia. But meanwhile… time for another news roundup.

Newt Gingrich brings a burst of opportunities for people to tell the world about their non-Gingrichy open relationships, the kind built on caring and support all around. Mainstream TV presents several long-term triad families explaining their way of life, plus a fictional one doing the same. Next Gen poly, on and off campus. Dan Savage invites readers to “Meet the Monogamish.”

Polyamory in the News: What the world is saying about us.

Hi folks. Time has passed... Here's another news roundup....

Canada legalizes most polyamory in a major court case. Dear Abby gives a platform for a renowned poly advice nurse to reach millions. Open marriage redux. Threesomes naturally. An emergent phenomenon at Occupy Wall Street. And, would your polyfamily like to be media stars? If so, learn how to stay in charge.

Polyamory in the News: how the world is seeing us.

Hi folks! Another season, another news roundup....

In Washington, a U.S. Senate committee hears testimony about the polyamory threat to America. “The New Monogamy,” i.e. non-monogamy, takes off in the mainstream media. Polyamorous polygamists file a legal challenge in federal court and could actually win. Triads and quads “redefining love’s boundaries” are featured on TV evening news.

Polyamory booth at Boston Pride Festival, Sat June 11

Hi folks! Once again Poly Boston will be one of several poly groups represented at a table at the Boston Pride Festival, this Saturday June 11th at City Hall Plaza. This is where the Pride Parade ends after starting in the South End and winding through downtown. Music, speeches, 100+ vendors, the works.

The Festival is officially from noon to 6, though I'll be arriving early to set up. Look for our blue "Polyamory!" poster. I plan to be there all day. Come keep me company at the table! We've always had a hugely positive reception.

More info about all of Pride Week is at http://www.bostonpride.org .

Cheers,

Discussion group in Framingham, Wednesday, 6/8

 I have scheduled a discussion group at my house in Framingham for Wednesday, June 8. We will start gathering at 7:00 pm for social time, discussion to start at 8 pm. I have the following topic on hand, feel free to bring up others, time permitting:

How do you handle long-distance relationships (if you do)? What are the positives and negatives of such relationships?

We'll finish up formal discussion time at 9:30, event to adjourn by 10:30 please.

I will have some beverages on hand and a few light snacks. Feel free to bring drinks or snacks to share.

Please RSVP to me at intriguedat41@yahoo.com by noon of June 1 and I will send you my address and directions. If you would like to attend but have transportation issues, please let me know and I'll try to help you figure it out. Framingham does have a commuter rail station (the Boston-Worcester line) about 3 miles from my house. Unfortunately, it looks as if it is not possible to get a train back after the group finishes up unless you wait until after 11.

Hope to see a lot of you here!
