Documentary Production on Consanguinamory Seeking the Experienced

We’ve been contacted by a production company seeking to do a documentary on consanguinamory.

If you think you might have something to contribute, even if not on-camera, consider reaching out to them. Here’s the information…
Love Productions, the makers of hit TV series The Great British Bake Off, The Great British Sewing Bee, The Piano and The Great Pottery Throwdown, are currently preparing a documentary film on the subject of consanguinamory.
Our aim is for this film to be a sensitive, respectful and understanding look at an issue many people around both the UK and the world are having to deal with every day of their lives under extremely difficult circumstances: from the point of view both of those campaigning for its decriminalisation, and those endeavouring to live happily in such consensual relationships without prejudice, judgement or persecution.
We would really love to hear from people who either in the past or present have been part of a consanguineous relationship, in order to inform our understanding of this subject and what daily life is like for those experiencing it. 
Rest assured we will fully safeguard the details, and protect the identities, of everyone who gets in touch with us, and there is absolutely no obligation to be involved with the eventual film: which would in any event be made in a way which keeps its participants’ identities completely secret.  
In this first instance, we simply welcome the opportunity to hear from anyone who is happy and comfortable to enlighten us with the true stories of their own loving relationships, alongside the issues and struggles they’ve faced as a consequence of them.
If you would like to speak to us, in full confidence, please do get in touch with Adam at either, or on 07969 901301.

Visibility in media can help progress. So, again, if you think you could possibly contribute in some way, reach out to them and see if you like what they’re doing.

Starting or Joining an Affirming Club at Your School

Not only are school years a time for intense personal discovery and growth, but they are usually a time of intense pressures, including the pressure to conform, and bullying. Some students have a life outside of school that can be downright hellish, and even a not-so-great school environment can be better than where they live.

For those reasons, affirming clubs are critical. Over the years there have been various names for them, such as Gay-Straight Alliances, or Gender and Sexuality Associations, or Diversity clubs, among others. Any club or program that supports gender, sexuality, and relationship diversities in students and their families can be of help. Equity, inclusion, and belonging make a positive difference.

If your school doesn't have such an organization, consider starting one. See here. As a new school year gets underway, don't let your school be without such an organization!

If you school already has one, consider joining and/or supporting it. Student, faculty, and parental support are all needed.

If the administration of your school will not formally sanction such a club, create a club anyway.

Whether starting or joining, please do what you can to make the organization welcoming, inclusive, accepting, and affirming of all whose identity, sexual orientation, relationship orientation, or existing relationship (or that of their parents) makes them a target for discrimination or bullying.
