1:30 Interview: Ruby Johnson

We profile Ruby Johnson, therapist and organizer of Poly Dallas Millennium, an event focused on highlighting marginalized communities, including people of color, transgendered people and practitioners of polyamory and BDSM. The theme this year is power, anarchy and equality and will be attended by many health and mental health professionals, including therapists, coaches and chiropractors.

But the best part is hearing about Ruby’s amazing life story of recovery, discovering kink and poly and coming out professionally on the Poly Role Models blog. She shares what changes she has seen in the poly community over the last seven years, how to cross lines and bring communities together, what she foresees for the next 10 years of polyamory and how to address race in the poly community.
