  • Power of Attorney Workshop
    Starts: 6:00 pm
    Ends: April 9, 2015 - 10:00 pm
    Location: Shameless Grounds, 1901 Withnell Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63118, United States
    Description: Nobody likes to think about it, but if you're incapacitated or unable to communicate, who gets to visit you in the hospital, or make decisions on your behalf? Are your wishes made known in a legal document that is recognized in a court of your home state, or the state of your partners?

    Well THINK ABOUT IT. And here's why:

    We have dear friends who were placed in the "nightmare scenario" very recently. A poly family of three - and one of them was struck down by a sudden and major illness.

    They were not married, and there was no Power of Attorney in place. The blood family of the stricken individual didn't like his poly partners, and so took complete legal control of him, and proceeded not just to limit his poly partners access to him, but to cut them completely out of his life - against his own wishes.

    The family denied them visitation. They ignored pleas to find out how he was doing. They moved him and wouldn't even tell the people he loves WHERE HE WAS.

    His poly family lived in grief and dismay for weeks, trying desperately to get information, visitation rights, *anything*, all to no avail. Without a spousal relationship, a blood relationship, or Power of Attorney, the legal system simply did not recognize them.

    Horribly, when he passed away from his illness, his blood family didn't even have the decency to tell those who loved him. They only found out when his obituary was posted in the newspaper.

    Many of us Shameless folk are in unique relationships which fall outside of what the legal system considers "traditional" marriage. (Don't even get me started on that definition.) LGBTQIA+ folk. Poly folk. Kinky Folk. We all need to realize that there are parts of society, and sometimes even family, who have a problem with us - and given the right circumstances, may act on their fear or misinformation, to deny us the most important things.

    SO YOU NEED TO THINK ABOUT THIS.

    Thankfully, we have a professional to help you do so.
    Erika Wentzel, Esq., of the law firm Flesner Wentzel, LLC will be here to help you set up your own Power of Attorney.
    Even better - it's FREE.

    Stay tuned for more details - but mark this date and time.
    We do not want to see any more friends go through hell.
    So come get your proverbial ducks in a row, just in case.

  • More Than Two - A Polyamorous Hangout
    Starts: 7:00 pm
    Ends: April 11, 2015 - 10:00 pm
    Location: Shameless Grounds, 1901 Withnell Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63118, United States
    Description: Come join us for
    ~More Than Two: A Polyamorous Hangout~
    Starting this summer, and held every 2nd Saturday at Shameless Grounds!

    It's a special night each month, just for Poly folk.
    Hang out and have some fun with people who understand what it is to be Poly.

    First, let’s talk about what this night is NOT.

    It’s NOT a dating event. It’s not specifically geared toward dating or finding a partner. (Although if that happens while you’re here, good on ya’.)

    It’s NOT an “Introduction to Poly” event - although newcomers to Poly and the sincerely Poly-Curious are certainly welcome).

    It’s NOT a class, NOT a discussion group, NOT a seminar, and does NOT come with any expectations of you, or your time.

    So then… what IS it?
    It’s an evening just for Poly Folk to relax and chill with other Poly Folk. That’s it. Seriously. We spend a lot of time greasing all the gears that keep the machinery of Poly running. The classes, the deep talks, the discussions, the meet-and-greets, the introspection, the heartfelt stories and affirmations… all the WORK of making it work. Frankly, it can get a little exhausting, no? It’s a wonder we ever have time to just “be” with our amours, paramours, and metamours.

    So come hang out, and enjoy a little Poly time without the work. ☺

    We’ll have:
    ~ Lots of tasty drink specials - with or without alcohol
    ~ Music
    ~ Entertainment (we'll try to mix it up a bit... fire performances for the first edition... perhaps live music, storytellers, belly dance or burlesque for future editions!)
    ~ A Cuddle/Snuggle Tent adorned with tons of blankets and throw pillows
    ~ Patio Jenga (it’s just like Jenga, but outdoor sized!)
    ~ Maybe a Henna Body Artist? Who knows! Tell us what else sounds fun to you!
