Our Vision

for Southwest Love Fest is to serve our non-monogamy community as a whole. Our community includes all genders, ethnicities, sexuality preferences, and varying levels of ability, ages, and experiences. We seek to strengthen our non-monogamous community by relevant educational topics and discussions on non-monogamy, examining privilege and inequality in non-monogamy. We want to create fun and interactive spaces with activities for people to meet, play, and be seen in an inclusive and affirming environment.

We also believe in creating small-scale local economy by profit-sharing with speakers and staff, choosing vendors from within our communities and banking with a credit union. As much as possible, we divest from large corporate entities.
