Polyamory in the News: roundup time again

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.

If you haven’t kept up with POLYAMORY IN THE NEWS in the last four months (or subscribed by the LJ friends feed or other feed), here is some of what you missed:

  • OpenSF breaks the record for the largest poly gathering to date. Lots of coverage with one click.

  • In one place, read all about Showtime’s seven-part docu-drama Polyamory: Married and Dating from this summer (in reverse date order). Now the producer has a call out for new families and groups to be interviewed for a possible second season. Could this be you?

  • If so, read Kamala Devi’s “How a Reality Show Altered My Reality”.

  • A long, reportorial examination of the poly movement appears in a major mainstream newspaper. This is one to save for your friends and relatives when the occasion calls.
