A Request

Good day all. My name is Dylan and I am an undergrad student at the University of Saskatchewan and I will be conducting a study on the polyamorist community come next january. I am currently searching for possible future participants, if you would like to complete an online survey at that time I would greatly appreciate it, and it would help to build the empirical research in the area of polyamory. I can be contacted at ddb307@mail.usask.ca and would love to hear from you.

The Independent: Sunday, 13 September 2009: Meet the polyamorists – a growing band of people who believe than more lovers equals more love

It's the age-old story: boy meets girl, boy marries girl, boy meets
another girl and they all live together happily ever after.

By Colette Bernhardt

Apart from the obvious inaccuracy about the new poly website being
the first in UK - this looks pretty good and mentions Polyday.

There will be an open discussion on polyamory in the occupied space
(think political squat) Non Commercial House, 165
Commercial Street, London, E1 on Thursday 24th September at 7 p.m.
see: https://london.indymedia.org/events/2370 for more or email

I like the timing of this as a lead-in event to Polyday, particularly
for those involved in poly who feel this links into their politics and
who want to discuss that.

I might get to this event. Anyone else?

Blurb is below.

Polyday Pan-Sexual Cabaret -- book tickets now -- Sept 26 in London
Hello All,

As I'm sure you know, Polyday in London is on Sept 26 at Dragon Hall in Covent Garden. This year for the evening ents we've put together an amazing Pan-Sexual Cabaret, with three fabulous acts including Rosie Lugosi < http://www.rosielugosi.com/ > and Ophelia Bitz < http://www.opheliabitz.com/ >, two hilarious singer/comediennes. This is going to be a great show, with only 100 tickets available, and they will certainly sell out (probably well before Polyday opens), so if you want to attend, I suggest you buy tickets now.

We're giving bi and poly online communities the first heads up about Cabaret tickets -- seriously, they will go fast.

A combined Polyday daytime workshops + Cabaret ticket costs £15 (£12 conc.) if you book it online, while Polyday workshops alone will cost £10 (£5 conc.) on the door. So it's a great deal to book online.

Full details are on the website. http://www.polyday.org.uk

Enjoy -- Erich

Help Required - Poly related/Poly friendly Cabaret Acts
Hi Guys,

Some of this year's Polyday team have set ourselves the task of organising a cabaret show in the evening on top of the usual Polyday event. We had managed to book the gloriously funny Wet Spots, but they've had to rush off on exciting other projects, and we're needing to fill in the gap with another act, preferably musical, but stand-up comedy, spoken word, or something else suitable sexy would also do.

Recommendations please!

It's a paying gig, though if the cabaret makes a loss, werenerd and I are footing the bill, so saving money is good too!

If you, or someone you know might be able to perform, or you've seen someone great, please let us know. Email is theofficialmaxine at gmail dot com.

Thanks everybody!

Polyday - 26th September at Dragon Hall, Central London
Hi folks,

It's time to open up your diaries and write POLYDAY in indelible ink on the 26th of September!

This year we've put in a bit of extra work and found a lovely new venue at Dragon Hall, near Holborn (Central London). Details are on the website at www.polyday.org.uk

The schedule for the daytime event is not yet settled, but will be posted here, and on the website nearer to the day. Workshops and discussions will run from 1.30pm until 6.30pm, and will be divided into three 'threads': Poly for beginners, Advanced Poly, and Open to All.

Evening ents this year will be treated as a separate event, as we're hoping to put on something a little special - a cabaret and social, with live performances from guest entertainers. The cabaret will run from 7pm until 10.30pm.

I look forward to seeing you all!

Polyday(?) 2009
I am aware of various discussions taking place in different (friends locked/otherwise non public) places online amongst people thinking about running a 2009 Polyday or offering to help in some way with running one (as well as other forward thinking about a more than one day event for some point in the future)

Without wishing to step on toes, particularly as I am not going to be getting majorily involved in the organising*, I think it's useful to make sure the different people who want to be involved with this are put in touch with each other and this is something I can potentially do.

A good place to start is the Poly activists email list set up last year for the purpose of discussing this sort of thing. It's a public mailing list, just one that's not particuarly well known about at the moment. And a mailing list is probably a better forum for event-organising discussion compared with comments to an LJ post. On the other hand, this post seems as good a place as any for people to comment to, if they just want to *wave* and shout 'I'm interested in being involved'. [err though, all of that needs to be taken with a big pinch of I-am-not-organising-this so the people who are will need to work out how best to communicate/organise stuff between themselves].

* I believe I've now said this in a couple of places, but I'll repeat it here; I haven't got the time to get very involved in this. I can do stuff that can be done on a computer/the internet/otherwise doesn't require me to travel, that isn't time critical and/or comes to me with plenty of warning.

Poly meet-up in Glasgow
Anyone from the Glasgow area who enjoyed being among like-minded folk at Polyday and would like to meet up with other polys locally... We're having a Glasgow Poly meet-up this Saturday, from 3pm in Mono, King's Court. I aim to be there early, look for the table with a parrot on it. (Beautiful plumage.)

Hope the organisers of this year's polyday enjoyed it as much as we all did. :)

Was good to meet new and old friends at polyday.  Had a good day.

Look forward to next year.

You all might also be interested in the new poly activists list that Anna started in order to help organise future events.


Look forward to ongoing community events. :)
