#ThatBlackCouple Ep 27 - The Entanglement Episode (or How We Do Polyamory)

In the first segment, Jenn and Daren recap how the term “entanglement” exploded over the summer and how it exposed people’s ignorance around polyamory. In the second segment, they unpack what an entanglement is, debunk its negative stereotypes, and show how polyamory is all about responsibility, open communication, respect, and ongoing commitment. In the third segment, Jenn and Daren reflect on how society shapes how we believe we should live our lives even though every societal norm is just made up.

We do “adult” differently. We are That Black Couple. Our goal is to create a space for Black millennials to discuss and embody adult life on their own terms. We aren’t beholden to “traditional” gender or parenting roles, queerness is fluid and present in the ways we show up in our relationships and in the world, and we want to build community with other 30-something Black folx who are trying to figure this ish out.
