And then, the PARTY! Great view of the river from the spacious balcony; hot acts inside!
- Voguing drag queens, light-up hula-hoopers, burlesque strippers and more!
- I spent an hour speaking French with three native French polys, discovering that the poly scene in France is nonexistent; there’s not even a word for it! Dommage.
- Watched Simon and Reid make out–thanks, boys; YUM!
- Got in the midst of a three-way kiss with said boys. Girls, I highly recommend two tongues in your mouth at once!
- Cuddled on the pallets on top of three cute bi/straight boys. Heaven!
- Made out with the adorable Trace, a charming gay boy two weeks away from his wedding day. (MWAH you’re so cute–call me!)
- Danced a swing dance with a closet Republican
- Spilled red wine all over my pretty dress, silk pashmina and hose and spent the rest of the evening wet and cold. Ick!
- Talked with Simon until I had to pull myself away at 3:00 a.m. Dude, I’ll come back–we still need to break out that champagne!
Photos and videos are posted on the Facebook event; full photos from the weekend are on my Flickr.
Thanks again to Simon for being the host with the most. I didn’t even mind the six floor walkup; that way, I didn’t have to worry about not working out for three days!
Had a great time my first day in New York for the 8th annual New York Poly Pride!
I’m crashing with a lovely poly bi guy in the West Village, and on his block (not on his stree, mind you, but his block, I can get a tattoo, buy leather gear, get sounds, find crystals, get a $12 haircut, get my fortune told and buy a custom $1,000 suit with a steampunk twist that would make my buddy M jealous.
So I’m in this silly, touristy place where everything is fun for me because it’s IN NEW YORK. I rode the subway IN NEW YORK! I ate at a diner IN NEW YORK! I had a black and white cookie a la Seinfeld IN NEW YORK! I walked a mile IN NEW YORK! I ordered pie a la mode iN NEW YORK!
Such a silly girl I am.
Last night’s Cuddle Party was interesting/fun. One of the big thrills of this trip is the chance to meet people I’ve only known online and via Skype–Serena Anderlini d’Onoforio, Alan from Poly in the Media, the stunning goddess Birgitte Phillippides, T, my cute host Simon, poly therapist Beki, Mark from Poly-NYC… and there will be more today. It’s kind of nice to be able to put faces to all these amazing poly activist names. The scene her is so very vibrant–not just socially, but politically. They don’t just have a few munches here and call it a day; these are the rock stars of polyamory. And I get to be here, too!
Speaking of which, I should run my short talk down and pack my purse. Oh, and figure out which way Central Park is…
Eager and excited for this weekend! I’m taking off tomorrow morning for Poly Pride in New York City, where I’ll be speaking in excellent company among some of the best poly authors and activists around. Very exciting for little ole’ Minx!
