Minx's Top 5 Poly Trends of 2015
The indefatigable Cunning Minx wraps up the year with her Polyamory Weekly podcast episode #460 (yes, four hundred and sixty), asking "How did the polyamory movement change in 2015?"
Here's her outline of the episode's main section, from its webpage:
Topic: Top five poly trends of 2015
- More nonfiction books gave us more poly voices to relate to.
- Stories from the Polycule by Elisabeth Sheff
- The Game Changer by Franklin Veaux
- The Husband Swap by Louisa Leontiades
- Wide Open by Gracie X
- Polly: Sex Culture Revolutionary by Polly Whitaker
- More poly news snuck into the mainstream, including being satirized in The Onion.
- Political pundits gave us air space in the wake of the same-sex marriage legalization announcement over the summer, and dissenting Supreme Court judges and political pundits wondered whether the polyamorists would want marriage rights next, which brought polyamory as a topic to the dinner table.
- The poly movement saw more diversification, including gay polyamorists, over-60 polyamorists and trans folks. Additionally, the issue of emotional abuse inside our community was brought to light, and relationship anarchy gained momentum.
- Poly Weekly kicked butt! OK, maybe this is only #1 for me, but LustyGuy and I spoke at more events than ever before; we exceeded 50,000 downloads a month; we launched an email newsletter, and we even made the Buzzfeed list of top 40 places to learn everything you never learned in sex ed class!
Go have a listen, and put something in the tip jar. She deserves it. Happy New Year.
