Poly Pride Weekend is shaping up big

The biggest-ever Poly Pride Weekend happens in New York City this Friday-Sunday, October 3-5. More than just a fun time, this is shaping up to be a historic event — possibly the largest-ever gathering of poly folks yet.

Schedule of events:

The events begin Friday evening with a Super Massive Cuddle Party at the LGBT Center in Lower Manhattan. Limited number of tickets available.

The main event is the Picnic and Rally Saturday afternoon, with numerous performers and speakers, at the Great Hill in Central Park (enter from Central Park West at 106th St.), from noon to 6. Free, and attendance is unlimited.

Saturday night there's a big Poly Afterparty with lots of performers in a private area of River Place on the West Side overlooking the Hudson. Limited number of tickets available; 300 people maximum.

On Sunday from 12:30 to 2:30 there's a big meet-and-greet and book-signing, with readings, by nine prominent poly authors, at the Bluestockings Bookstore.

Polyamorous NYC announces Thursday morning,

The Village Voice has listed Poly Pride as a Voice Choice. Time Out NY has Pride weekend prominently featured in its table of contents. NY Blade and NY Press have listings. Our extensive lineup of speakers and entertainers have promoted the Rally on their blogs and to 10's of 1,000's of fans through email.... If you're Poly and even if you're not, this is THE event to be at this weekend in New York City.

Afterward, Polyamorous NYC is convening a National Polyamory Leadership Summit to discuss where the movement should go and possible projects to undertake. This is by invitation only.

I'll be there for everything, wearing a nametag. Hope to see you. Look for a tall, narrow guy who often has a goofy grin. Come say hi!
