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.
Why November 23?
The first Polyamory Day was celebrated by the Canadian Polyamory Advocacy Association (CPAA) as a National Polyamory Day in Canada. November 23 was chosen because, on that day in 2011, British Columbia’s Supreme Court ruled that Canada’s so called “anti-polygamy law” does not apply to unformalized polyamorous households – clarifying that polyamory, as it is typically practiced in Canada, is legal and not a criminal act. Prior to November, 23, 2011, it was questionable if polyamory was legal in Canada.
That first celebration in Canada was very popular, and many outside of Canada joined in and participated too. So much so we created versions of our images that did not mention Canada for use outside. Since then we’ve produced images that can be used anywhere, and in more languages starting with Spanish.
Who is promoting this?
A task group of the CPAA works in coordination with Poliamor en México, members of the Polyamory Leadership Network, the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, PolyDallas Millennium, Black Poly Pride, the Poly Cultural Diversity Alliance, and others. Last year, new images were produced in French, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Dutch, Italian, and English.
Can I help coordinate this effort in my country or language?
Absolutely! Please message the CPAA’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/PolyAdvocacy/. Google Translate has allowed us to coordinate activities across languages.
