Relationship Super Conference

The relationship super conference is happening again from May 16th to 22nd.

It’s an amazing free online event covering a huge diversity of relationship-related topics, and including talks by some of the people I regularly mention here: Alex IantaffiSophia Graham, and Justin Hancock, as well as Ruby B. JohnsonKevin Patterson, and Liz Powell who I met at the Poly Dallas conference back in 2018.

In my interview I spoke about a number of topics that I’m hoping to cover in a new relationship diversity zine – coming soon!

  • How we need to understand relationships – and relationship struggles – through the lens of cultural and developmental trauma.
  • Relationship diversity, and why this model is more helpful than binaries when it comes to relationships.
  • Why we need to focus more on how we relate, than who we relate with or what relationship style we subscribe to.
  • How our relationships with ourselves, others, and the world are interconnected.

You can check out my talk on day 2 of the conference, May 17th.
