Radio interview with Gary Taylor (updated)
On September 5th, Radio New Zealand broadcast a 32-minute interview with Gary Taylor, a Florida State English professor and world-renowned expert on Shakespeare and Middleton, who has chosen to come out as poly. He discusses his triad, their literal coming-out party to colleagues and friends, and his otherwise conservative sexual history. He's articulate and persuasive in describing what we're all about. A fine new voice for us, I say. You can listen here.
I've now listened to the interview, and so have both my partners. I wish I'd mentioned "insecurity" as a big part of what people usually call "jealousy". There are many more things I would have liked to say, but it's hard to compress 15 years of experience into 30 minutes of air time!
As I explain in the interview, our decision to come out as poly two years ago was explicitly political, but this is my first attempt at poly activism.
