We'll have potluck dinner, hot-tubbing, socializing, and a showing of Terisa Greenan's entire poly web-TV dramedy series "Family" on the big screen in the living room. Kids welcome (but must be supervised and kept safely away from the pool, which will not be in use). Read all about it on the event's page:
This is a voluntary fundraiser for Loving More and/or the Canadian Polyamory Advocacy Association. A hat will be out if you want to drop in a check (no amount too small or too large), but this is not required. Do bring something edible for the potluck table.
Come revisit old friends and meet new ones! Sign up at
If you haven't been to the house before, or have forgotten how to get there, RSVP to me, firstname.lastname@example.org, for directions. It's 1 hour from the center of Boston, less from the northern suburbs.
Too far? Not T accessible?! Then host your own Poly House Party! See
Behind this scheme are folks at Modern Poly and Loving More. They plotted it at the last Polyamory Leadership Network meeting as a way to have fun, to "bring together polyamorous people and communities, to celebrate polyamory, and to support the movement for the acceptance of relationship choice." From the website:
It is poly-fi triads, kids of four-parent households, primaries and their play partners, the ethically non-monogamous, the incidentally monogamous, the polysaturated, the overly single, the doubly heartbroken, the label-resistant, the too-complex-to-explain, and our wonderful not-wired-that-way supportive allies.
It is barbecues, keggers, potlucks, raves, picnics, blues dances, play parties, tantric retreats, game nights, field days, movement fundraisers, cuddle parties, and fancy dinners.
It is raising awareness about our culture, our relationship preference, and the idea that freedom of relationship choice is important to society at large. It is a community bonding experience, our way — because everyone will do it a little differently.
