Where does a Brisbane polycurious or polyamorous person get started if they want to find like-minded people to connect with or partners for a polyamorous relationship? The best place to start is to sign up to our poly dating online site www.polyfinda.com or search for the PolyFinda app in your app store. There are thousands of people across Australia and around the world seeking the same!
The site is not just for polyamorous dating, though: it hosts a community of people who like to socialise and party together and a place to find support in a society which can be hostile to this lifestyle.
Meet up and Facebook also have public groups in most capital cities.
Brisbane Poly People, a Meetup group, is primarily “a social and discussion group based in Brisbane for all who are interested in open relationships, and the varied alternatives to the standardised couple of a monogamy lifestyle.” They have almost 1000 Brisbane polyamorous people to connect with and meet for a “social afternoon”on the second Saturday of the month. Their Meetup page has links to Brisbane polyamory events, Brisbane polyamory-friendly counsellors and discussions on Brisbane polyamorous subjects. You can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
While you may be lucky enough to meet a polyamorous Brisbane lover there, the old trusty favourite dating apps like Feeld, Grindr and Tinder are a good bet. Brisbane Poly people also recommend, OKCupid, who, as we all know, have recently added a polyamorous option to their searches. None of these specifically cater to the polyamory community though. That why we created PolyFinda dating app. It makes it easy to find poly people all around the world.
Those seeking to learn about, or practise, something a bit sexier, can check out international organisation, Killing Kittens, who have established their parties for the “sexual elite” in Brisbane and check out Brissy Swingers for links to swinging parties in the sunny city.
It’s not all fun and games in Brisbane, though and, while this sounds like something from the dark ages, discretion is advised. Last year a polyamorous Brisbane woman was fired from her job after her employers discovered her lifestyle, and, even worse, the Australian Human Rights Commission upheld the decision, and compared polyamory to necrophilia and paedophilia.
