On this week’s episode, Jhen talks about the holiday and shares the audio and video from the Happy PolyDays conversation with Leanne Yau of Polyphilia Blog about Polyamory, Race & Culture.
Who is Leanne? Even if you already know, here’s that bio again!
Leanne Yau (she/they) founded Poly Philia in November 2020, the largest social media platform dedicated to non-monogamy awareness in Europe. Apart from creating and curating humorous and educational memes, tips, resources, and other content on social media. She also created the #PolyamoryTipoftheDay series, narrated several polyamory audiobooks, and provides private peer support to non-monogamous individuals and couples across the globe. Leanne’s work is influenced by her own experiences as a Gen Z bisexual, autistic, and Chinese non-binary woman, and she hopes to bring visibility and representation to these intersectional identities. She has been actively non-monogamous since 2016. She has appeared on several polyamory podcasts, been interviewed by the BBC, and appeared on national television to advocate for non-monogamous relationships. Willow Smith, a prominent artist who is openly polyamorous, regularly shares Leanne’s posts to her millions of followers. Leanne uses her viral memes to raise awareness about polyamory and educate others in a down-to-earth and entertaining way, as well as to create a supportive community for people to bond over their experiences, whether good or bad. She’s definitely not an expert, but loves helping others to explore the lovestyle!
