In March, polyamorous couple Nico Tortorella and Bethany Meyers tied the knot in a stunning ceremony which they described as “genderbending” and “androgynous,” before opening up about their relationship.
And last month, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald star Ezra Miller revealed that he was part of a polyamorous group of lovers called a “polyamorous molecule”—or “polycule” for short.
He said the polyamorous group included members of his ‘genrequeer’ band, Sons of an Illustrious Father, and others who fit in with the rest of the polycule’s vibe.
However, just days later, Miller rejected all labels, including the term “polyamorous,” and warned that seeking an identity can cost you “your life, your safety and your soul.”
He said it was “fascinating that we all naturally see to limit each other for the ease of our own minds,” condemning this inclination to reduce people “to the lowest common denominator” by attaching labels to them.
