The Board

Louisa Leontiades (Chairwoman ~ Board Member)

Louisa is the author of the popular blog Postmodern Polyamory and freelance writer for Huffington Post, Jezebel, Salon and Nerve. She identifies as a cross between non-hierarchical polyamorous person and relationship anarchist even whilst living with her partner and father of her two children in Branno, Gothenburg.

She has been in a quad, open relationship and now an open triad and has practised ethical non-monogamy for 10 years. Her book The Husband Swap has gained her international recognition. She gives workshops and counselling to those who are considering open relationships.

As chairwoman of the Polyforeningen she cultivates and coordinates the individual talents of the board, and makes the decisions in any conflict that occurs in operational areas. It is her job to network at an international level and contribute to the body of knowledge in English.
