A polyamorous person experiences consensual intimate relationships with more than one partner.
“Figuring out that I’m poly was an experience in itself. It was full of confusion, guilt, and fear. But there was also some excitement there. I found this sense of an explanation to who I’ve always been. When I came out to my father he wasn’t surprised and said that I’ve always had a big heart.
A big heart. I guess that’s how I would describe being polyamorous. I have a big and open heart! My multiple partners don’t mean I’m any less, they in fact make me more than I was. In the end I’m happy being me."
Over the pandemic, we started Project Beanie, a collection of 20+ beanies representing LGBTQIA+ identities. These beanies are modelled by our followers, and highlight the voices in our family. We hope you resonate with their stories!
