Articles about polyamory
The following are articles about polyamory. There’s no real rhyme or reason to why something shows up here and something doesn’t, although a lot of the articles linked from here came to my (Jay’s) attention because they were mentioned on the Poly Boston announce or chat list.
This page is also pretty stale, so if you find links here that don’t work, or if you know of newer Poly Boston-relevant articles we should list here, please let us know.
Another good place to go to find articles about polyamory is Alan’s Polyamory in the News blog, also syndicated here in a sidebar. (Alan is a regular at the Poly Boston dinners.)
- Sandra A. Miller wrote a fairly extensive and thoughtful article titled “Love’s New Frontier” about Poly Boston and about polyamory in general for The Boston Globe Sunday Magazine in early 2010.
- Bobbi Keppel and Alan Hamilton have generously made available a column Bobbi wrote for Interweave World about Bobbi’s multi-adult family (with many people in it who were not necessarily lovers), and her children’s experiences in it.
- The June 2003 issue of Boston Magazine has a short and generally favorable article by Michael Blanding on page 75 about Poly Boston, which describes one of our discussion groups. (Our events do not normally end up in the press; in this case we announced the event and the reporter’s presence well in advance.) Alan W. and Michelle W. are quoted by name, and two other regulars have comments as well. The article is online here (along with a handful of other short pieces — scroll down a bit).
- The Boston Phoenix did a more elaborate article on us in 1998, “Free Love Grows Up”, including a short glossary and bibliography. (Love Without Bounds, mentioned in that article, no longer meets, but many of the people who attended its meetings are now involved with Poly Boston.) Alan and Sean are quoted, as are a number of national poly figures (and some researchers).
- “More than One: One woman’s path to polyamory”, by M. Volkova. This appeared in MetroActive, a San Francisco-area online paper.
