Diana advocates for choice in how we create our relationships, beyond a one-size-fits-all model. This includes questioning the assumption of monogamy, so that monogamy is stronger as a conscious choice with awareness of alternatives, including Consensual Non-Monogamy and Polyamory.
Since a 2008 article in the New York Times about her polyamorous relationship (which continues happily today), Diana has been out and proud (very publicly!) as queer, bisexual and polyamorous, meaning that she is nonmonogamous with full honesty and consent of her partners.
Through polyamory, she has found an incredibly rich, fulfilling, and supportive chosen family, and wants to speak out so that others will know that a polyamorous option exists, and to support this and other innovation and choice in love, family, and relationships as a whole in our culture.
In 2007, Diana co-founded New York's monthly Polyamory Cocktail Party, the largest gathering in the world of young adults interested in polyamory, offering an opportunity for like-minded people to connect, offer support, and build community, now in cities across the United States. Diana also co-founded Open Love NY, to support the polyamorous community in NY.
As a lawyer and advocate for those who are polyamorous or consensually nonmonogamous, Diana has been interviewed widely such as for the New York Times, Newsweek, the Washington Post, Current TV, the New York Post, Time Out NY, the Russian Today Show, and on television shows such as The View. In September 2009, Diana appeared on the award winning docu-series MTV True Life "I'm Polyamorous" for a viewership of over twelve million people, mostly young adults. In 2017, Diana appeared as an expert along with Dan Savage, Esther Perel and other luminaries in the documentary Monogamish.
Diana teaches many workshops on relationship skills for managing healthy non-monogamous relationships, and offers both private coaching and legal support for polyamorous families.
