April 6-8, 2018, marks the first time Tucson, Arizona will be the site of Arizona’s first conference on ethical non-monogamy, Southwest Love Fest (swlovefest.com). Created with the intention of establishing an annual forum to discuss the many aspects of non-monogamous relationships, this event will introduce an active and growing national community to some of our best known leaders and mentors in the practice of Polyamory. Kevin Patterson, Dr. Elizabeth Sheff, the Multiamory Crew, Cunning Mix and Lusty Guy as well as NCSF’s own Susan Wright, will be some of the presenters sharing their experience with attendees.
As one of the leader’s of Phoenix’s Polyamory community and a member of NCSF, I was very excited to hear about the planning of this event. I attended the first organizational meeting and signed up to fill the role of Volunteer Coordinator. I like to think of myself as a Poly Advocate so I was happy to get involved in helping to create this conference. Advocacy for me means both living the practice of ethical non-monogamy as well as offering support in whatever position I’m able.
