Reports are coming in from all over that the poly segment of Our America that aired last night is a smashing success. Alan M. of Poly In The News calls it “incredible,” and in one email to the Poly Leadership Network, said it would be “great publicity material for explaining the poly movement like forever.” :^D You can see available video segments, and get a link to the re-broadcast schedule on Alan’s blog:
For those who missed the Oprah Winfrey Network’s incredibly good, hour-long poly documentary on “Our America” last night, you can watch the available video segments from it here:
Yes it was that good.
The show will be rebroadcast next Tuesday night and maybe again later. Schedule:
There’s also a great segment on the Loving More organization itself:
And another about a poly family raising an 11-year-old child:
Remember also that we in the East Bay Poly Potluck community will be hosting TWO viewing parties in the next week. I think the Berkeley viewing is full up, but there is still room at the one in Antioch, which is this coming Sunday, March 10th. Doors open at 2pm.
In the process of getting ready for the show, the Loving More folks (who were profiled on the Our America segment) have also been working extremely hard at an upgrade to the Loving More website. They rolled it out last night, and it looks awesome!
One of the things ON that new Loving More site is a link to a new article by yours truly. It’s called Five Reasons Agreements Fail, and it’s a combo of the two entries I made here last month in my KISSable Agreements Workbook series.
If you’re interested in another preview from the book, you can also download the section on Getting to Win-Win-Win, which I gave out at the recent International Academic Polyamory conference in Berkeley. The pdf is free, though to get it you’ll need to give me a valid email address. By the way, that will also sign you up for my list, where you’ll get periodic tools and tips, and notification when my workbook actually appears in print (soon, now!) If you don’t want to stay on my list after you get the pdf, you can always unsubscribe, of course (though I hope you’ll stay.)
Hooray for fabulous progress in the understanding of polyamory in our culture! Hooray for personal and business success for Loving More, and all the other poly families and groups who appeared on this show! And hooray for getting the word out about tips and tools for successful polyamorous relationships — both my own (via this blog and Loving More), those of others on the Loving More site and at other locations all over the ‘net, and the world. Bit by bit, we really are creating that reality in which I want to live, where whoever you love, whatever forms that might take, or however many people you might love …
Love is always OK.
