hi hi!
we're happy you're here.

meet the team at polyamproud and learn why we're so passionate about instituting a new flag for polyamory.

how we got here

1995 Polyamory Pride Flag by Jim Evans

we wanted to redesign the polyamorous flag.

you know the original polyamorous pride flag needs an update. we saw too many creators tossing redesigns onto the internet hoping theirs catches on—our founders among them. we realized it was time for a larger-scale approach.

designed by Jim Evans

we saw that we could do something bigger

we didn't want to create another addition to the slush pile of online designs. we realized the way to unite the community behind a single design was to unite the community to choose a design that suits it best. so we got in touch with other groups that had done it before us, took lots of notes, and got started.

sarah (mack)

she/they, outreach manager

28yo, bi). By trade I am a scientist. I have a masters in Microbiology and Immunology and I am currently a 5th year biochemistry and molecular biology PhD candidate. I have been openly practicing polyamory for 1.5 years (KTP and non hierarchical). While I haven’t been in the community that long, I have already gained so much and I’m wanting to give back to the group that has been so accepting and loving of me. I am trying to do that with my work here. I am the outreach manager and a part of the fundraising team at PolyamProud, but really, I help out wherever I can. 

Jan (co-founder of polyam proud)

jan

any pronouns, co-founder

My name is Jan, I’m Dutch, 25 years old. My interests are exceptionally broad and this is reflected in most things I do. I’m passionate about social work, linguistics, woodworking, maths, hairdressing, poetry, longboarding, mountainbiking, conlanging, world building, singing, graphic design, pixel art, GMing, animals, plants, dancing, and most of all people. I've been polyam for my entire life but only admitted that to myself 6 years ago. I actually knew 4 years before that when I broke up with my now partner again because both of us felt like we were lying to the other about loving them because we loved other people.

Almost 19, I'm a content editor for PolyamProud. I also assist in content-related research, help run the PolyamProud tumblr account, and suggest content ideas. I'm from Toronto, Canada. In addition to being polyamorous, I'm a POC, aromantic, bisexual, and a nonbinary woman. Currently, my university studies are focused on biology, though I'm also passionate about learning new languages. I love working out; I especially love running and swimming. In my free time, I enjoy drawing and have recently switched to creating digital art. Anime fan here! My faves include Code Geass and Attack on Titan.

amber (tumbler manager)
metal

she/they, illustration & tumblr manager

I’m Metal, also known as MetalWing15. I am a pansexual disaster from the Netherlands. I'm mainly an artist and work on traditional art, digital art, comics and also trying my hand at game design. Hoping to study on any of those subjects sometime in the future! Currently I’m making art and gifs and help manage the Tumblr blog for the PolyamProud group. I honestly love creating which is probably why I spend so much of my time making stories, comics, drawings and a ton of other stuff as well.

chris (public relations)
chris

he/him, public relations

I own a cafe, coffee and crepes, and love the enneagram and astrology (I’m Type 5, an Aries Sun, Libra Moon, Virgo Rising) Excited to be helping with PR and thankful to be part of such a passionate group!

molly (website wrangler)
molly

they/them, website wrangler

42 year old queer, fat, non-binary Femme. Been polyam for more than 20 years. I prefer kitchen table polyam, and my favorite show is (and will always be) Buffy.

I may have unwittingly sparked this initiative! When my flag proposal got a lot of attention over on reddit, kristian & jan teamed up to get us a new, unified polyam flag. I'm incredibly excited to help get a new flag out into the world. I'm super appreciative of their energy and enthusiasm to make this happen. This is a big job that can't be accomplished by a single person with an idea and a design.

For what it's worth, I don't feel like my flag has to be the flag! I just want our whole community to have a more attractive flag that represents our values and doesn't rely on obscure and confusing iconography.

figuring out pronouns, spanish translator

aQuel, I'm bi and mostly a femme, sometimes I feel more non-binary but I haven't gave myself the time to think about the labels for that side of my identity that much, so I just flow with it. I'm non-monogamous, recently out of the closet with my mom, friends and ex. Currently starting to date as a Solo Polyam and I plan to stay like that for a while to focus on my studies. I'm a psychology student soon to be graduated and interested in Community Psychology. I'm glad to be here and I hope to be of help translating stuff or something. I'm a native Spanish speaker from the south of Mexico (I love astrology and tarot as well haha oh, and rollerskating)
