When Emily Morus-Jones contacted me to see if I could help spread the word about DIOMYSUS, their new short video on polyamory, I had no idea what an absolute treat was in store for me. In a short five minutes of watching adorable puppets discuss their polyamorous lives, I joined them in a funny and engaging journey through their own feelings and other peoples’ reactions about polyamory. Led by the esteemed Ruby Rare (author and ambassador for queer British youth), adorable mouse puppets with the voices of real people discuss what it is like to be polyamorous in Britain today. Each puppet has their own personality, and it feels like it matters because their indivuality reminds viewers of real people authentically living their lives. Beautifully done by a polyamorous and queer cast, DIOMYSUS is not to be missed! Check it out on BBC at
