What we're about

This is a Peer Social Group for those interested in polyamory and other forms of consensual non-monogamy. During Shelter In Place we are meeting ON ZOOM every FIRST WEDNESDAY of the month from 7pm to 8:30pm. This meeting hopes to foster a space for connections, resources, and shared experience.

Each month has a different topic, and sometimes we have guest presenters. We'll announce the topic for the month once we know it.

Come share your experiences and ideas with others, and learn from them in return. Get to know other poly/open/etc people in San Mateo County!

MORE INFO:

*There is no charge for this event. We happily accept donations, but no one is ever turned away for lack of funds! During Shelter In Place, you may make donations via the Pride Center website: https://sanmateopride.org/donations/ Please note that it's for the Polyamory Peer Power group.

*The San Mateo County Pride Center is open to all, including LGBTQ, polyamorous, open, RA, poly-friendly, queer allies, as well as people from any background, race, gender or sexual identification, religion, political affiliation, and length of hair (or lack thereof!). If you are interested and respectful of diversity, we're happy to have you join us!

Hope to see YOU soon!
