Call for Participants: Grad Student Researching Polyamory in Communities of Color in the SF East Bay

This made its way into my in-box today and I want to help get the word out. Airial is one of our bloggers and she’s working on her Master’s Degree at SF State. If you’re a polyamorous person of color in the San Francisco East Bay, she wants to talk with you. See below for info and pass it on!


Hello, my name is Airial Clark. I am a graduate student at San Francisco State University in the Sexuality Studies Department. I am conducting ethnographic research on polyamory in communities of color of the East Bay. I would like to interview people of color, between the ages of 30 and 45 years old, who are open to their friends and family about having multiple consensual intimate relationships. Participants must live in the East SF Bay Area.

Participation in this research includes being individually interviewed on three separate occasions about your intimate relationships, sexual and racial identity, social events in the East Bay that you attend, and how being polyamorous has impacted your family life.

Each interview will take approximately 1.5 hours. The study will take place in Oakland from June 2011 through August 2011 with 3 separate interviews being held in 3 week intervals. I am happy to schedule at your convenience, evenings, weekends or weekdays are available.

If you would like to participate in the research, please contact me at airialclark@gmail.com
