Polyamorous Workshop Series
LGBT Resource Center, Student Center N201
Polyamory is the practice, desire, or acceptance of having more than one intimate relationship at a time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved. It is distinct from swinging (which emphasizes sex with others as merely recreational) and may or may not include polysexuality (attraction towards multiple genders and/or sexes). This will be a structured monthly discussion about poly and its various aspects such as boundaries, compersion, communication, jealously, and relationship styles.
Ice Cream Social & Movie
The Ice Cream Social is held each September to welcome LGBT students back to campus, to reconnect with old friends and make new ones.
