Polyamory, support-groups and activism, Munich

"Poly, Poly support-groups and poly-activism", by antidote and nuvens-no-céu-azul at "1st Munich's "Poly Begegnungtag", 08.02.09.
There are as many ideals and realities of poly as people. All of us have different wishes and dreams in respect to poly, all of us (try to) make them real in different ways. But independent of those differences, common to us all, are the experiences of poly-closet, pressure to decide, mono-normative pressure or attacks, isolation or discrimination. Those aggressions, together with the uniqueness of poly problems, lead people to naturally group in search of mutual comfort, identity or solutions to similar shaped problems. Some people might pro-actively organize themselves to influence the way poly is perceived by the society, and thus make it a less aggressive and dangerous place.
In this workshop we would like to address and discuss with you the role that this activism has, or has not, or should have, or should not have, as well as the motors that change, voluntarily or involuntarily, the acceptance or the perception of ideas along History, how those motors feed from activism or the other way around, etc..
