What we're about

This is a community for Boston-area queer polyamorous women. Queer includes asexual, bisexual, lesbian, transgender, intersex, kinky, questioning, curious etc - I like it so that I don't have to come up with a laundry list of descriptors and risk leaving anyone out!

I hope this community will be used for general chat and advertising social events of interest to BQP women.

Potluck, Art Supplies Swap, Crafting, Hot Tubbing in Medford member's home

Katie is opening her wonderful and amazing home to our group for a truly special day of fun and creativity! We are hosting an art/crafts supply swap. If you have craft supplies you've bought but never ended up loving, bring them with you, and swap them for something you want to try! Fabric, yarn, paint, brushes, rubber stamps, markers, canvas, paper, glue, glitter, glass, ink, tile, grout, varnish, coloring books, art technique books or magazines, sketch pads, buttons, beads, sequins, whatever ... if you're storing it, get it out of your house and bring it over! Anything not claimed by the end of the day will be donated to a worthy cause. We will also have lots of space for you to work on an art project of your own. Bring your project with you! We may also create a group project of some sort for those who would like to work with other people on something fun. Katie's wonderful home has a hot tub which will be open for us to use. Clothing optional, but it's not entirely private from the neighbors, so feel free to bring a bathing suit if you'd like. Bring your own towel too if you want to use the hot tub. (But if you forget a towel they do have some for us to use.) We will have use of the kitchen to share a potluck meal. We have several people who are vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free, so we will ask you to fill out an ingredient list for your dish to be displayed next to your dish on the serving table. Katie lives in Medford, and her home is accessible by the 94, 96, and 101 buses followed by a 15ish min walk, or the 134 and 710 buses which drop off very close to the house. Street parking is free and prevalent. Max number of attendees is 25, so please RSVP early. Katie will email the address to the attendees the day before, so please keep your RSVP up to date. You are welcome to bring a date of any gender if you wish. (Please include them in the RSVP!) **** IMPORTANT! Please realize this event takes place in Katie's home. You must attend one of our other events so that we can meet you before you can attend any of the events we hold in private homes. We never post the address on the Meetup website, so you must have your settings such that you are able to receive mail from Meetup members. This is how we get the address to you. If we can't contact you privately, you will not be able to get the address. If you've RSVPd to one of our previous events and never got the address, please check your settings! It's very frustrating for us to not be able to tell you why you aren't getting the address. *****

Movie Night at Malden member's home

Needs a location

Join us for the next movie in our movie night series! We will be showing poly and/or queer and/or kinky movies on an occasional basis. Our longtime member, Angel, is hosting the movie at her home in Malden, a short walk from the Malden Center stop on the Orange Line. Max number of attendees is 12, so please RSVP early. Angel will email the address to the attendees the week of the event, so please keep your RSVP up to date. You are welcome to bring a date of any gender if you wish. (Please include them in the RSVP!) If you wish to have snacks or drinks, feel free to bring some with you. Napkins, cups, and plates will be provided. There are plenty of seats, but bring a blanket if you'd like! The doors open at 7:30 and the movie will start at 8:00 SHARP, so please don't be later than that. The movie we will watch is not a poly movie, but it's a lesbian movie: "The Gymnast." The trailer wasn't very helpful, but here's a movie clip that will give you a sense of it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1O0b5oJDQs Synopsis: A retired gymnast misses her gymnastic days, but can't do her old routine because of an injury. She meets up with a coach who introduces her to aerial silks, and partners up with another woman who is a dancer, and they learn aerial silks together ... and find themselves attracted to each other. Please cancel your RSVP if you can no longer attend, so that others may. Address will be sent out the week of the movie - if you do not have your Meetup enabled to receive emails from other members, Angel cannot PM you the address! Additionally, please make sure you have either met Donna or Angel prior, as this is at a member's personal home.

Much to Annie's surprise, her friendship with Maggie gradually develops into a strong attraction. (They flirt with a poly solution to the attraction.)
