Executive Director

Robyn L Trask

Loveland, CO

Robyn L Trask
Robyn is the Executive Director of Loving More Nonprofit, a national leader for polyamory awareness, polyamory counselor, workshop facilitator and writer. Raised in Colorado and Texas, Robyn realized at 24 that she simply was not monogamous. She decided to be honest and ask for open relationships even if it meant being alone. Her first marriage of 18 years with one of her high-school sweeties was open, though it was not until nine years into her marriage that she discovered there was a term, polyamory, and an organization that really fit her relationships style, Loving More Magazine. She founded a local Denver polyamory discussion group with some close friends and lovers in 1998. Robyn studied biology, chemistry and animal science at Texas A&M. She worked in the construction industry as an estimator, owned a top wedding and catering business, is a professional photographer and founded New Visions Center for personal growth where she taught Sacred Sex and other classes.  In 2003 she attended and presented at Loving More Conference retreats on both the East and West coast. Robyn purchased Loving More in the fall of 2004 because she did not want to see this great community resource falter. She quickly realized with the technology and changing publishing industry that Loving More was not viable as a for-profit business or as a magazine and began the process of Loving More Magazine becoming national nonprofit for polyamory awareness. Since 2004, Robyn has worked to expand media awareness of polyamory through press releases and appearances in numerous articles, radio and TV shows including Montel, Lisa Ling and Michael Baisden. Robyn and Loving More were instrumental in the formation of Polyamory Leadership Network. A national speaker and advocate for polyamory she has been a featured speaker at conferences, taught at universities and been a keynote speaker. Robyn has been openly polyamorous for 25 years, raising three children in a polyamorous family.
