As Alcoholics Anonymous wraps up in a community hall in inner-city Sydney, a nervy gaggle of people wait to crack on with the next event: polyamorous speed dating.“Poly speed dating is where we get 32 poly people in a room and we get them to each meet as many people as possible and see if they like them,” says Eliot, the 25 year old organiser.
Events are held regularly in Bars and Lounges across: Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Adelaide and Perth.
