Polyromantic is a term meaning someone is romantically attracted to multiple genders but not all genders.[1][2]

Polyromantic people may also be polysexual, or they may have a different orientation sexually.

"Polyromantic" is often abbreviated as as "ply" or "polyrom", to avoid confusion with the terms Polynesian or polyamorous.[3][4]

Polysexual and Polyromantic Visibility Day is celebrated on 26 July.[5]


There is not one universally-agreed-upon flag for the polyromantic identity. Some polyromantic people simply use the polysexual flag to also represent their polyromantic identity. Other polyromantic flags are shown below.
