OLNY Presents: Perspective & Perceptions with Mona Mousa

Date(s) - September 28, 2021
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Join us on Zoom this month with our guest host Mona, as she discusses moving towards a polyamorous community that makes room to prioritize the lived experience of BIPOC polyamorous folks. We will talk about breaking our perceptions of buzz words in polyamory and understanding that these words can apply to different people in different ways based on social, ethnic, political positioning, and that the differences don’t take away from anyone’s own experience.
Please consider donating $5 to $10 through Venmo @Open-LoveNY to support our events.

Speaker bio
For over 15 years mona has been an upologetic force for positive change and a champion for social justice. In 2015 she founded feather & anchor, a talent management agency that had exclusively represented works of lbtq & poets of colour. she worked tirelessly to make space for the voices who come from marginalized and often invisible identity groups.
After feather & anchor closed it’s doors, mona went on to become the co-executive directer of naked heart festival of words, the largest lgbt literary arts festival in the world. a self proclaimed “retired poet” mona is the founder of kw joy & co. waterloo region’s first and only digital lifestyle hub with a mission to amplify the region’s vibrant community of people who live work and play in the region. joy & co. is truly a passion project that defines how a community of like minded individuals can have a resounding and lasting local impact.
She’ll often say “it’s a political statement just to leave home some days”, but if her work is indicative of anything, it’s of a person who has seen a world of pain love and growth, who’s work navigates the world in a way that strives to find truth & justice.
