The Connecticut Supreme Court today ruled that denying marriage rights to same-sex couples is unconstitutional. Connecticut is now poised to become the nation’s third state to allow same-sex marriage, joining California and Massachusetts. I’m headed to Boston, Massachusetts this weekend for some Opening Up events (reading on Saturday afternoon and workshop on Monday evening). It’s nice to know that New England leads the charge on the East Coast to legalize gay and lesbian marriage!
Poly Living is a great polyamory conference founded by the late George Marvil, which has been taken on by the Loving More folks. It’s in Philadelphia, February 27-March 1, 2009. The weekend will feature regionally and nationally known presenters and two keynote speakers (one of whom is Polyamory Weekly’s Cunning Minx!). The early registration rate will be available through 11:59 pm tonight. After that, rates go up, so sign up now!
I have a bunch of events this coming weekend as part of the Poly Pride festivities. I’m one of the speakers at the Rally in Central Park on Saturday and will be in the park for the picnic, rally, and hanging around. Sunday, there is a big reading of authors with poly-related books at Bluestockings, and I will read from Opening Up. Afterwards, I’ve been invited to the Poly Leadership Summit, which should be interesting. Monday and Tuesday, I’ll be working, having meetings, and seeing friends. Then I head to the College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio, where I’ll give a talk on queer sex. I love Wooster, I have spoken there several times and it’s always a good time!
