Just in time to help balance commercially-driven, hetero-normative Valentine’s day! I’m so happy to see The Open Photo Project highlighted recently by the BBC.
from the BBC:
“The Open Photo Project aims to reduce stigma about consensual non-monogamous relationships. In one recent study from the US 21% of the study’s participants reported having had some kind of non-monogamous relationship – but that number could be higher, owing to people not willing to share their personal circumstances.”
I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity to work with Erika Kapin, helping out with The Open Photo Project.
She says, “This project offers a look at the uniqueness of human relationships and is an invitation to re-examine preconceived notions of successful, sustainable, and healthy romantic love. Together, let us de-stigmatize ethically non-monogamous relationships by building understanding and respect. The aim is for more people to accept that while monogamy is a valid relationship choice, there is a wide spectrum of other equally valid choices that can be as varied as the human experience.”
