I have questions...
Are there discounts for groups?
Yes, if you have 10 people or more who would like to attend any or all of the conference events, please contact us so we can prepare a group quote for you,
Are only Black people allowed?
No. This conference is for Black people, those that love them, those that center them, and those that understand the need for a conference of this sort.
Am I still welcome if I’m not poly?
Yes. Come with any questions and an open mind. As always, be respectful.
What does the “poly” in this event refer to?
When we use the term “poly” throughout this site and event, we are referring to polyamory. Polyamory is the belief in and decision to love more than one. We recognize that there are other love styles and lifestyles that use the root “poly,” but they are not the focus of this conference.
Are there any kid-friendly/family-friendly activities?
We are assessing the desire and need for family-friendly activities at Black Poly Pride 2020!
If you are interested in bringing your child or children, please shoot us an email at BlackPolyPride@gmail.com. :)
Where can I get tickets?
You can buy your tickets HERE! Early bird registration ends on February 29.
I want to help! How I can I do that?
Thank you in advance. Send an email with your availability to volunteer, as well as any specific skills; to Volunteering.BPP@gmail.com.
Do you provide transportation to the events?
No. All of our events are centralized around the host venue. Uber, Lyft, and the Metro are all viable, inexpensive options to get to off-site events.
I can’t afford the cost of the hotel & registration fees? Do you have hotels that have discounted rates, or financial assistance for those who want to attend, but can't for financial reasons?
Accessibility for all is important to the organizers. We are working hard to make sure that daily dining and lodging are as affordable as possible. We suggest partnered lodging with a roommate to share cost with during your stay. If you would like help finding a roommate, please email BPPRoommate@gmail.com.
We also have a payment plan available via Patreon! Until February 29, you can sign up to pay $55/month as a Black Card Patron.
What airport do you suggest?
We suggest guests fly into Reagan National Airport- DCA. DCA is 14 minutes from the host hotel, BWI is 48 minutes from the host hotel.
I can't walk far, I use a wheelchair. Will the places we go have wheelchair accessibility?
Accessibility is VERY important to us as organizers. We will be engaging the community to insure the highest level of accessibility at our events.
Is Black Poly Pride LGBTQIA friendly?
Black Poly Pride is a conference founded by Two Queer black women and we are dedicated to ensuring that the spaces at Black Poly Pride are welcoming, safe, fun and affirming for all attendees. We want people of every sexual and gender identity to show up in droves because We NEED you there.
Your lives, voices, experiences, Joy and Love matter to us
