Are you new to the idea of polyamory? Curious to explore different types of open relationships and meet like -minded folks?

Join us at 8pm and visit our  sign-up station for those who identify as polyamorous. Guests will have the opportunity to describe and decide what they are looking for, in meeting other poly guests.

From 8:30pm-9:30pm, our special guest presenter Steve Sandford will discuss the various aspects of polyamory. Explore both the challenges and the rewarding benefits as well as how to navigate around feelings of jealousy and trust.

We are excited to welcome a special feature. From 9:30pm-10pm, the author of Playing Monogamy will give a brief presentation on this book. Join special guest Simon(e) Van Saarloos and learn more about how and why society defaults to the structure of monogamous relationships. For those interested in purchasing a copy, books will be for sale for $17 each.
