Talks & Debates
‘FREE LOVE’ – Then and Now…(10.45-11:30)
In anticipation of Valentine’s Day Feb. 14 and as the start of the 40th Anniversary year of the 1968 World Wide Social and Political upheavals we have a very Romantic ‘in the round’ discussion on that our favourite topic, so called ‘Free Love’.
We will look at what ‘Free Love’ meant to people in 1968 as many people started or, in the case of some people, continued rebelling against Traditional Marriage and Romantic Relationships as well as Conventional Sexual Mores. We will then look where we are at in 2008 and the effects that 60’s style Free Love has had on us (in the counter-culture and mainstream) both Romantically and Sexually.
The changes for Women, Gay People and various Immigrant Groups will be discussed. Everyone is an expert on this topic so please bring your own views, perspectives and personal stories to the circle discussion on this relevant topic.
