This week, "My Wife's Girlfriend: Love, Sex, and Polyamory" is what's trending on TaggMagazine.com.

Polyamory comes with a lot of ingrained questions. What does that actually mean? Is it a new way of framing relationships? Is it “consensual” cheating? How do we talk to our partner about it?

We discuss this and more on this week's episode of Tagg Nation.

Jade is back with part two of our Washington, DC gayborhood series. We have your DC history from the 1980s to present day. We discuss The Gay Women's Alternative (GWA), a defunct non-profit lesbian community organization that existed in D.C. between 1980 and 1993. The organization made a huge difference in the DC area lesbian community. Many gay bars across the country and especially in DC were known for having no windows. We dive into why this was important during this time. In the 1990s the DC hate crime act was passed, Banneker field hosted the first Black Pride, and Audre Lorde spoke at the 20th Anniversary of the March on Washington. We end with Ashley, Chelsea, and Jade sharing how they have contributed to DC queer history.

We talk to  Tasha Majomi who emigrated to the United States from Nigeria at 19 with no choice but to leave behind family and friends in the process. While finding work in the States, she was able to create a new network of friends she calls family. In contrast to residing in D.C., when Tasha grew up in Nigeria, it was, and still is, illegal to be gay or affiliated with any LGBTQ+. She talks to us about her journey and transition from a Queer Black Woman in Nigeria to a Queer Black woman in the United States.

One of the most difficult challenges confronting couples who break up is their desire to still stay connected. Sounds strange, right? The No Contact Rule (NCR) may seem brutal to those struggling with breaking free from an ex, but why continue having contact with someone who has made it clear that they no longer want to be with you? In the long run, by committing to the NCR, you will feel empowered, and you will be taking back control—in a situation where you have felt powerless. The NCR gives you time and space to heal on your terms. Do you agree? You can read this trending on Tagg article at taggmagazine.com/breaking-up-no-contact-rule.
