Activists throw the biggest poly convention anywhere yet. A major newspaper analyzes the poly movement at length for a million readers. And read all about the first polyamory-themed series on mainstream TV, with the community’s strong and divergent reactions to it.

Poly in the News: Latest Roundup!
The day before a key Republican primary, polys become a political football in a good way. More polyfolks discover they can appear on TV and not die. Joys of poly parenting are described to the world. The feminist roots of modern poly get an airing. And the Polyamory Leadership Network gets its first mention in the New York Times.

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....

Dear Abby treats us like normals, almost. Promoting a poly event in the mainstream media with brains and cute overload. Obliterating a clueless mental-health professional. TV done right. Next-generation voices, teenage and up. And, “with their heads on their shoulders, they create their own identity using tools 2.0.” (That’s supposed to be us.)

Listings of UPCOMING POLY EVENTS and LOCAL POLY GROUPS
Folks,

I've created a new website, ALAN'S LIST of POLYAMORY EVENTS:
http://polyevents.blogspot.com

These are all the major poly cons, festivals, gatherings, etc. coming up in the next 12 months, as far as I know. I think the list is pretty complete, at least for the English-speaking world. There are now 13 events on the list through July 2012 -- with descriptions and sometimes my commentary when I've been to one of these or know people who have.

ALSO: At the bottom of the page are five resource lists of LOCAL POLY GROUPS worldwide, sorted by location -- making it easy to find the local group(s) in your backyard, with their own meetings and happenings.

Instructions for how to suggest new listings are on the page.

I intend to keep the site updated and current forever. (I hope I've got another 30 good years ahead, and before I go I'll try to hand off the job to someone else.)

Please link to this and pass it on.

This project is an outgrowth of my other site, POLYAMORY IN THE NEWS:
http://polyinthemedia.blogspot.com

... which I've been running for six years now.

Enjoy!

Polyamory in the News: how the world is seeing us
In Washington, a U.S. Senate committee hears testimony about the polyamory threat to America. Meanwhile “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 in the recent news
A parenting magazine presents polyamory as a logical alternative. TV news goes all awkward covering a Loving More convention. Dan Savage as America’s most important sex ethicist. New poly books. More on campus. And, how to frame the emergence of polyamory as the natural outcome of the last several centuries of human development.

Polyamory in the News roundup
Polyamory advocates break new ground before one of Canada’s highest courts, with media coverage to match. A happy poly household is featured on TV, with toddler. We read that “Three is the new two,” “Poly is the new gay,” and “Is polyamory the new black?” Deborah Anapol weighs upsides and downsides. And a study uncovers a pathetic truth: most young lovers don’t even hear each other’s agreements regarding monogamy.

Polyamory in the News roundup!
Polyamory’s most important court case since 1999 opens next week, and this time our side is prepared. Meanwhile, TV documentaries on polyfamilies in Quebec and Denmark show how TV can do it right if the producers are so inclined. In the U.S., “Sister Wives” sets the new public image for group families, and that’s not so bad. Writers from Dan Savage to a friendly Episcopal priest weigh in on poly life. And the poly-mono anthropology debate rolls on.

Polyamory in the News
A hot new book matches poly to our evolved human nature. A legal scholar examines what will happen if poly is viewed as a sexual orientation. Get ready for “the new monogamy,” the coming term for non-monogamy. Stranger in a Strange Land redux. Great radio and TV. Conservatives flip out.

Polyamory, Robert Heinlein, and his new definitive biography
Okay, poly Heinlein lovers/haters, here it is 2010 and the pot is a-stirring again. Here's what I have to say about it on Polyamory in the News. At length, I admit.

Has anyone here yet gotten hold of the new biography-to-end-all-biographies?

Polyamory in the News: a race to define ourselves
Politicians spend millions to define who they are to the public before their opponents can do it for them. The modern polyamory movement has been defining itself successfully with nothing but volunteers, enthusiasm, and a shoestring. When does the backlash start? I keep waiting for it, and year after year it keeps not happening.
