Synopsis: This lecture will seek to introduce some general information about polyamory and similar identities such as ethical non-monogamy and anarchic relationships. There will also be an overview of terms, disproving some myths surrounding polyamory, and how polyamorus relationships "work." Biography: Hailey B.
