An informative guide to polyamory resources in Australia, including an introduction to polyamory, contact information for poly-friendly health professionals, annotated guides to websites and email lists, a calendar of local and national events, and more.
We also have thoughtful and fascinating writers contributing blogs and articles about all things poly.
- The poly community is diverse:
We could be rural, inner-city urban or suburban, straight or gay, bi or asexual, cis- or trans-gendered. We could be agnostic, atheist, Christian, wiccan, Buddhist or pagan, to name but a few. We could be into polyfidelity, swinging, bdsm, polygamy, kink, feminism or plain vanilla sex on flanellette sheets. We could be dressed as daggy geeks, conservative businesses suits, or fetish fashionistas who sport a mean corset. Our common goal is that of ethical, multiple, intimate relationships and respect for our incredible, wonderful, stimulating diversity.
- The poly community is growing:
Several hundred people form the wider Australian poly community. Many of us attend local meetups, discussion groups and other face-to-face events on a regular basis. Even more of us commune regularly online through nation-wide email lists and forums. There are thriving poly groups in NSW, VIC, SA and WA, and more groups are developing all the time.
