Speaker Bio: When Alan discovered group love at age 17 he thought it would change his life forever. Forty-five years later, turns out he was right. Alan has lived happily in both poly and mono relationships for long stretches of his life. He is a founding member of the Polyamory Leadership Network, has given keynote speeches at Poly Living and Atlanta Poly Weekend, attends conferences and gatherings all over, and is active in Poly Boston and Family Tree in his home area. His goal is to make the whole world aware that, for certain people, open and honest poly relationships can be a dazzlingly joyous way of life drawing on aspects of human nature that not many know exist.
