MHH48: Queer Polygamy: A Delicious Mind Bender with Blaire Ostler

Throw away everything you think you know about patriarchal polygamy and monogamous gender binary scripts, and listen to Blaire Ostler’s mind-blowing theories on Queer Polygamy! Don’t worry, she defines all the poly and amorous words for you, as we talk about deconstructing the traditional beliefs and fears we have about love, deepening and expanding relationships, and exploring our authentic selves. Blaire’s theories are full of love, hope, depth, and ethical understanding.  As always, if you’d prefer to watch this video instead of just listen, head over to Mormon Happy Hour on Patreon!
