‘Young and Poly’? Gay Task Force Promotes ‘Polyamory’ (Multiple Partners) to Youth

Nation’s oldest national homosexual organization now promotes “open” (multiple) sexual relationships for youth

By Peter LaBarbera

"Young and Poly" workshop description for 2010 "Creating Change," the annual conference for LGBT activists put on by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.

The above is taken from the program guide (p. 73) of the 2010 National Gay and Lesbian Task Force’s “Creating Change” conference, held in Dallas, Texas, February 3-7, 2010.  Miriam-Webster Online Dictionary defines “Polyamory” as “the state or practice of having more than one open romantic relationship at a time.” Urban Dictionary’s top definition of “Polyamory” states:

‘The practice, state or ability of having more than one sexual loving relationship at the same time, with the full knowledge and consent of all partners involved.’

Here is one youth-oriented “Poly” activist website: Young Metro Poly. Here is adult “poly” activist Jenny Block’s speech at a “Poly Pride” rally in New York City in 2008 (“Before writing Open, I went to my daughter’s soccer practice with my husband and our then girlfriend, Lisbeth….”). And here is an AFTAH article, “Poly Pride Follows Gay Pride.”

The presenter’s organization, BAGLY, is the Boston Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Youth, a pro-homosexual youth organization that lays claim to sponsoring “the worlds first and largest LGBT youth prom,” in Boston. (BAGLY is headed by a male-to-female transgender activist, Grace Sterling Stowell.) Presenter Daunasia Yansey is also an activist with the Boston Sex Workers Outreach Project (SWOP), affiliated with SWOP-USA, which advocates for the decriminalization of prostitution.

“Sexual Freedom” is a track at the Creating Change conference denoting the latest stage in the Sexual Revolution: rights and recognition for various “alternative lifestyles” beyond homosexuality-bisexuality-transgenderism, including sadomasochism, “swingers,” and polyamory and fetish “communities.”

The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF) was founded in 1973 and is the oldest national homosexual “rights” organization in the United States.

Text of “Young and Poly” Task Force “Creating Change” 2010 workshop description:

Young and Poly
Sexual Freedom

Polyamory being one of the more marginalized identities of our community, young people need a safe space to be validated within their truths. Being young and poly even in the “queer” community is impacted by a hetero-normative model of family and relationships. This caucus is not designed as a poly 101 but is designed for young people that identify on the poly spectrum to voice shared experiences and learn from one another.

Presenters: Daunasia Yansey, BAGLY [Boston Alliance for Gay and Lesbian Youth], MA
