Cheers Sexy People!
Hello, Loving Without Boundaries (LWB) community! My team and I are sending good energy and vibes of hope and love to our amazing community as the world continues to slowly open up cautiously post-pandemic. I hope you are doing your best to keep safe and healthy. Sharing inspirational stories of hope, inclusion, and healthy lifestyles are more important than ever. If you are looking for ways to connect with loved ones you may be separated from, check out this blog post that I shared recently. On to another inspiring story…
I am really excited to share my latest podcast interview that I released with Luna Ray, the founder of Bloom Community. The team from Bloom Community (a new sex positive, kink-friendly, and polyam-friendly app) reached out to me about a year or so ago. At the time, the app was originally only serving San Francisco. However, they have since expanded their reach and are gaining recognition and clout in the industry. It was a pleasure to meet Luna and hear about how the app came about and learn more about how it is supporting the kink, sex positive and polyamorous communities. I have heard many wonderful things about Bloom as it gains traction, from both our clients, and our community. Luna! Thank you for all of your powerful and amazing contributions to support our growing community! I appreciate you, and your hard work!
Here is her bio:
Luna Ray is the founder of Bloom Community. Bloom is a community hub centered on ethically non-monogamous, queer, kink, and creative groups and events. She serves on the board of OPEN, the Organization for Polyamory and Ethical Non-Monogamy, whose mission is to advance public acceptance and build political power for polyamory and ethical non-monogamy. Prior to Bloom, Luna led User Acquisition for Instagram from 700M to over a billion users, the social products team at Oculus that launched consumer VR to the world, and the Marketplace team at Faire. Luna has two degrees in engineering and business from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and studied computer science at Stanford.
Some topics we discuss in this fun, informative, and entertaining interview:
- Her lightbulb moment regarding consensual non-monogamy, and why community was so important to her as part of this journey.
- How her desire for connection during the pandemic led to the creation of Bloom Community.
- What initial challenges she faced when she first began her consensual non-monogamy journey.
- The advice she would give her younger self.
- What the Bloom Community app is, who it is for, and how it works.
- Her activism through the OPEN organization.
- Dating profile tips and feedback that have been shared in the Bloom community.
- Tune in to listen to this fantastic podcast episode!
