Provo Pride – Another Great Poly Success!

Not to toot our own horns (okay, maybe a little), but we were able to join the Provo Pride festival last Saturday, September 19th. This is our first year at the festival but the third incarnation of it overall. Check out more about Provo Pride here, especially if you’d like to volunteer and get involved.

We had some really excellent conversation about polyamory – what it is, how we practice ethical non-monogamy, and ways to open yourself to multiple relationships. It was also a lovely warm day (after a week of some pretty gnarly weather), so that was a bonus.

Our booth activity is traditionally to have folks draw pictures of their family and their loves. We had some really gorgeous art come from visitors, so we took some pictures to share! Take a gander. 🙂

Ogden Pride Success!

We were able to work with Ogden Pride for a great deal on a booth so that we could represent the many ways people love in another part of Utah. It was a really exciting day as well. Council members Heather, Jessie, and Isaac were able to person the booth for the duration of the one-day event. We saw some old faces (looking at you, Ogden Poly Coffee group!) as well as some new.

Similar to SLC Pride, we did an activity at the booth where people young and old were invited to draw who they love in their poly family/pod/cule! If they were willing after, we hung the family portraits on some string for everyone to enjoy. There are some very interesting poly configurations out there, and this is an excellent way to take a look at just how many there are.

There are many great stories to tell, but one that stood out was a younger person drawing their family and asking some questions bout polyamory in general. After defining the word and explaining it a bit, we asked them if they knew anyone who was poly. After a bit of thought and some head-shaking, their parent stepped in to say “Yes, we do! You know the X’s and then the other family the Y’s? They are poly!”
The young person had a moment of realization dawn on them and started talking more about it with the parent figure as they walked away. Spectacular!

If you have any great Ogden Pride stories or snippets to share (particularly if you came by the booth to say hello) please share in the comments!

Also, you can help us get to Provo Pride as well!
