Vancouver Poly 101 1st Meetup

Wednesday May 4, 2011

5:30 to 7:00pm, at the Prophouse Cafe, 1636 Venables St, Vancouver, BC.

Bringing the Victoria Poly 101 concept to Vancouver! Victoria Poly 101 is a discussion-based group on the concept of polyamory and what it means to love more than one person ethically and openly. It has become quite successful so we thought we'd come over to Vancouver and give it a try.
Kiki Christie and Cora Bilsker will facilitate this event. Please invite anyone you'd like!
If you can't make the event feel free to join the Vancouver Poly 101 FB group

I will also be there to take questions about polyamory or Victoria poly community, and give a synopsis of the Vancouver "What is Polyamory?"
