Welcome!

Virginia Polyamory is a volunteer-based organization which represents an all inclusive community of varied ethnicities, orientations, and genders. We hold regular meetings, discussions, and social events to support and educate those navigating these relationships and all who are curious to learn more. We aim to provide a safe space for polyamory to be discussed openly.

Head over to our events page to see what we're up to and be sure to follow our social media to stay up to date!

More Resources

It can be very difficult to find resources on healthy polyamory, so we've compiled some of our top suggestions here. None of these resources are paid advertisements. They have been used and shared by many of our members, and so we felt they might be helpful.

If you have other resources (or are a resource) and think they should be shared please contact us and we would be happy to evaluate them.

We hope you may find these useful!
