Join this Global Live Event hosted by Poly Pages on the topic of Abuse in Polyamory, Join our host Claire Travers as she sits down with Alicia, Eve and Sydney for this global live one-off event.
This event will run on the 17th April 2021, at 10am LA / 12noon CHI / 1pm NYC / 6pm LDN / 7pm PAR.
Abuse can happen in any relationship, whether you have one partner, two partners, or more. A polyamorous relationship is not any more or less likely to be abusive than a monogamous one, however having multiple partners may create unique situations that abusive people may exploit. Our social understandings of abuse assume a mono-normative relationship, leading to poor understandings and awareness of the ways abuse may present in a non-monogamous dynamics. In this one-off, live event - join three polyamorous survivors, educators and writers in a global conversation about abuse in polyamory. Facilitated by Poly Pages - an academic non-monogamous platform - this event is a facilitated, closed panel discussion. This panel will include: how we speak about abuse in polyamory, how abuse may present in polyamory, and how we as individuals and as communities, can address abuse in polyamory.

About our Sliding Scale:
As part of Poly Page's anti-racist agenda, we are delivering a sliding scale payment scheme to all 'for pay' events. Sliding scale is a form of mutual aid that recognizes that money is an access barrier, which disproportionately impacts black, indigenous and people of colour (BIPOC). When we offer sliding scale, we acknowledge the various forms of systemic oppression result in racial economic disparity and seek to mitigate a financial barrier to entry that members of our community may experience.
For this event, this will look like two payment options - a price point identified for White participants of 10GBP (2.50GBPfor each individual in the event), and another for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) of 4GBP (or 1GBP for each individual in the event). We encourage each attendee to decide which payment option is the best fit for them in order to allow them to participate in this event, and for us to compensate those involved in the event. This event will also encourage direct donation to the speakers during the event, and will including Paypal/CashApp/Venmo options on screen.
Persons with disabilities are encouraged to select a payment scale that feels comfortable for them, regardless of ethnicity.
