In this event, I received the privilege of listening to Symoné and Toni Adebajo regarding the topic of consent in polyamorous and non-monogamous practices. Polyamory can be defined as “the practice of engaging in multiple romantic relationships, with the consent of all people involved,” and from listening to Symoné and Toni, I learned that this is deeply different and individual for each person.

One thing that stood out for me was the discussion of safe spaces — Symoné and Toni discussed QTPOC-only spaces and how this makes members of that community feel much more comfortable in that space, where they can just “be”.

This event was unmissable and truly informative – we really can learn a lot from consent within polyamorous and non-monogamous relationships!
