Today is Polyamory Day. Share it! And why November 23, you ask?

Fire up your meme-sharing fingertips, because today, November 23, is Polyamory Day. Ambitious organizers are getting the idea to spread.

Also available: French and Spanish


For years people floated various ideas for an appropriate Polyamory Day, but nothing happened. Then in 2017 the Canadian Polyamory Advocacy Association (CPAA) took the initiative by declaring, with a press release, that November 23 would be National Polyamory Day in Canada. In 2018 they repeated the announcement more globally, and the idea spread. Now they're in a broader campaign, in seven languages, for 2019.

Why November 23? That's the date when, in 2011, a British Columbia Supreme Court judge ruled that Canada's anti-polygamy law does not apply to modern polyamorists, if they do not attempt to make a multi-marriage-like arrangement into an official marriage. Previously, according to the law, three or more people living in one dwelling "conjugally" could be sentenced to five years in prison, although no prosecution had been brought for many decades.

The CPAA has posted their Polyamory Day announcement and graphics for anyone to copy and use. Also in French and Spanish.

Please share this from their Facebook page. Or in FrenchOr in Spanish.

Update: Also sites now in Portuguese, German, Dutch, and

And, boost on Twitter.

CPAA writes,

If you agree that people who are polyamorous are entitled to the same rights, privileges, and governmental accommodation that others have, please circulate this image to others on your blogs, in email, and on social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Let's make this go!


BTW, here is a list of other more-or-less
settled recognition days that are poly related.
