We're back! & we hope you all had a lovely weekend!

Today we continue the story of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. #polyamory #histsex

Part I: the childhood of Frida is here: Image
Part II: Diego is Not Great, is here:

And I'm sorry to report...Rivera is gonna continue not being great. But we get more Kahlo! So that's great!

Here's a couple examples of their paintings at this time.

First, Diego had started to move away from European cubism and towards the art style he is known today for. Here are two paintings from his famous murals

Hello #polyam history fam! We return from a bit of a hiatus because 1) it seems there's a worldwide pandemic on and 2) your authors were preparing and then editing (and editing and editing) a article on the work we are doing, which will form part of the introduction Image
and the theory that will eventually underlie our book. We will be sharing more about this in the future!

If you are reading this, we hope you and yours are safe&sound&healthy&staying inside! This is one of the harder challengs the #polyamory #polyam community
has faced--challenges about quarantining, not being able to see other partners, and, in some cases, being trapped with abusive partners, but from the bottom of both of our hearts we hope that all are safe and quarantining--we're all in this together now <3

Hey #polyam friends: recommendations for videos on polyamory for folks new to non-monogamy who don’t like to read? Podcasts may be good too.
Thanks for all the suggestions y’all!

Hello again! We are pleased to be telling the #polyam / #nonmonogamous (hi)story of Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892-1950), the American poet, feminist, and playwright.
Millay is very well-known among #polyam communities today due to a number of articles that @brainpickings wrote about her “polyamorous” love letters: brainpickings.org/2016/02/22/edn…
Along with this beautiful biography of Millay by @Ballad_BobDylan: amazon.com/What-Lips-My-H…

Friendship IS romance. Queer folks know this. Polyamorous folks know this. You can have friend crushes. You can friend woo someone. Friendship IS romance.
If your friendships lack romance you have shitty friends. My friends take care of me when I am sick. We take each other on friend dates. We buy each other gifts. We LOVE each other deeply. Just because there isn’t sexual involved doesn’t mean it’s not romance or real love.
I need more of us to reject the heteropartiarchal narrative even if you choose to be straight or monogamous. Practice queer poly love in your friendships. Have deep relationships of all sorts that you value!

Fuck the idea that challenging toxic norms of traditional monogamy is a “university PhD thesis worthy idea.” I learned the most about #polyamory from ppl w/out degrees. Fuck the idea that ppl without formal higher education “have less complicated stuff going on in their heads”
If folks need examples of the wide variety of people who practice non-monogamy is a number of ways, under different circumstances, I recommend checking out @PolyRoleModels
