COMMUNITY QUEER NEWS:

We hope you will join Telling Queer History at our upcoming February storytelling gathering: Polyamory and Circles of Care & Connection! It's a virtual, all-ages, substance-free event that will be ASL interpreted and captioned. There's more information below- including links for you to read the full event post. You can get your tickets (sliding fee scale - $0-$50) at Eventbrite:


This upcoming virtual event is the third of four storytelling gatherings we are hosting during this, our 10th, program year. It makes a big difference when our community partners are available to share our events and help more people in the LGBTQ+ community find us. We aim to make every event special, a place where people can find a sense of community, wholeness and belonging.

Please share the word of this event among your networks. I have attached the PNG file for the event, in case you're sharing on social media such as Instagram. Feel free to be in touch with me for any questions: Lucinda Pepper, Lpepper@tellingqueerhistory.com.


We look forward to being in community with you!


Polyamory and Circles of Care & Connection

Sunday, February 12, 2023
2:00-4:00 PM CST

Virtual Event, All Ages, ASL interpreted, Substance Free, Sliding Fee Scale $0-$50

Summary: How do we create circles of care around us & live in circles of love that feel abundant? Join us to explore community, care, connection, & chosen love. Our February love gatherings were born from a need for community and radical love. Polyamory and chosen circles of care are queer ways of loving. Not all polyamorous people are queer, but there is a strong kinship with queerness because of the chosen relationship structure, which is outside of the norm in the dominant culture systems of the western, colonized U.S., which do not benefit our lives, our loves, or our ways of living As queer people, we have had to make our own families, so we really understand different ways of loving and choosing each other.
