Unitarian poly leader speaks out

This isn't big media here — but Valerie White, an outspoken stalwart of polyactivism since the 1990s and the founding president of Unitarian Universalists for Polyamory Awareness, just appeared on a weekly podcast called UU Perspectives ("UUs are changing the world.... Meet the people making a difference in the communities around them"). She chairs the worship committee of her church and lives in a 21-year open triad that's raising twins.

From the blurb:

Polyamory: The idea that you can love more than one person as long as you’re doing it openly, honestly and with the full consent and participation of all involved.

Bio: Valerie White has been a Unitarian Universalist for 53 years. A lawyer and director of Sexual Freedom Legal Defense and Education Fund, Valerie White has spoken on polyamory at many national and regional conferences. She has written for many periodicals, including Loving More, The World and The Humanist, and served on the boards of Church of the Larger Fellowship, Unitarian Universalists for Polyamory Awareness (their first president), Interweave, and UUs for Jewish Awareness. She has been president of the Unitarian Church of Sharon, MA and currently chairs the worship committee. A long-time sexual rights activist, she was president of the Vermont Civil Liberties Union.

Favorite Quote: “My feeling about technique in art is that it has about the same value as technique in lovemaking. Heartfelt ineptitude has its appeal and so does heartless skill; but what you want is passionate virtuosity.” —John Barth, Giles Goat Boy
