 Joreth HeadshotDirector Joreth Innkeeper

Joreth discovered the word “polyamory” back in 1998 when it suddenly dawned on her that she was terrible at monogamy.  She has since become a poly community organizer, a poly activist, a poly advice columnist, a poly movie reviewer, a media trainer and lecturer on polyamory and intersectional topics, and a formidable internet flame warrior focusing on defending ethics and the values of polyamory and poly relationships.  Her current network configuration is that of a sprawling inclusive poly web that spans 3 countries on 2 continents, in which Joreth practices solo poly with several deeply intimate long-term partners.
Joreth‘s uses female pronouns like she and her but male titles like sir and cameraman (her profession), however male pronouns are also acceptable while female titles are not.  Her gender identity is complex, so ask her about it if you’re curious.Joreth is not everyone’s cuppa tea, but it’s guaranteed that interacting with her will be an experience!
