What we're about

O.P.E.N (Open relationships, Polyamory and Ethical Non-monogamy) is a community for people in or curious about ethically non-monogamous relationships across the whole of Yorkshire. We have been going since February 2012.

Once a month we meet in a pub in central Leeds as a chance for the community to meet face to face and support each other in a safe environment (as well as catch up over a drink!). Newcomers are always welcome - sign up below!
