Boosting the Signal: Lovin’ Outside The Box: People Of Color Redefine Relationships

FYI- This isn’t a Good Vibrations event. I ran across it on Facebook and wanted to help boost the signal and get the word out. You can also check out the Facebook event page.

POLY/POC OAKLAND in association with Sankofa Events and Queer Art Impact presents:

Lovin’ Outside The Box: People Of Color Redefine Relationships

WHAT: a movie screening (Redefining Relationships: An Exploration In Polyamory), panel discussion and Q&A with the mission of creating community, educating, and building a much needed space for dialogue between people of color around alternative models of ethical relationships.

Whether you do open relationships, are tolerating one, define as polyamorous, poly-curious, monogamous, ethically non-monogamous, kinky, vanilla, asexual… however you roll, come peep different styles of relationships that are not positively modelled to most of us. the panel will consist of LGBTQ & hetero people of color who love outside the box.
