>Slightly lost in the ongoing hub-bub over Kayne West’s outburst on the Music Video Awards, this week MTV True Life premiered an episode, “I’m Polyamorous,” that follows young polyamorous sorts in both NYC and the Carolinas.
The decision to share my polyamorous life with millions of people on MTV is scary because being non-monogamous is taboo. I don’t think polyamory is right for everyone, and I respect monogamous relationships, but I’ve found that having more than one partner is really right for me. I am telling my story so that young people will realize that there are many choices in relationships, love, and family style. Breaking the rules about what love should look like and sharing that with the world is risky, but being fearlessly open to the world also feels incredibly freeing!
Shortly available online, the episode will be airing on MTV throughout the month and posts from those featured in the show will appear on the blog for the series. Take a look, leave your comments, share with the world what’s worked for you–or not–in polyamory!
