- The LGBT Community Within the Pagan Community - Luthien
Coming out of the broom closet – no easy task as most of you will know, and doubly hard when there are two closets from which to emerge into a harsh, intolerant and often unforgiving world. Thank goodness we don’t live in medieval ... Posted: January 12th. 2014 Views: 1,787 - [ Full Article ]
- The Witch, The Tiger, and out of the Wardrobe - Oriona Vega
I am the pagan who works magick, yes. But I am sure after years of questioning my faith that Paganism seems more like the obvious choice for the person, like me, with Asperger's Disorder. Many people don't know that girl, the one ... Posted: January 12th. 2014 Views: 1,215 - [ Full Article ]

- My Pre-Wiccan Struggles - G Dren
I am ex-military and come from traditional Roman Catholicism. My mother later bounced around to other Christian-based belief systems, eventually ending up as a Methodist. I guess this is where my article takes shape. My transition ... Posted: September 2nd. 2012 Views: 1,300 - [ Full Article ]
- The Gays and Paganism - Fire Lyte
I have actually been trying to write an article about being a gay pagan for a few months now. Toying with ideas and themes, I couldn’t ever quite find what angle I felt best described the nature of being both gay and pagan and how ... Posted: April 18th. 2010 Views: 8,359 - [ Full Article ]
- Disenchantment and a Sense of True Polarity - Chi
It’s no secret that Wicca focuses widely on ‘polarity’. There are also many ‘between the lines’ contradictions in Wicca surrounding homosexuality and gender roles. I’m rapidly becoming disenchanted with the gender roles of ... Posted: April 18th. 2010 Views: 4,449 - [ Full Article ]
- Insights of a Non Initiated "Novice" - Joshua Ray
I am often asked my views on religion and God. This is a very complicated and difficult question for me to answer on the spot. I feel that writing this will shed some light on my perspective. First, you should know that as a child ... Posted: May 16th. 2010 Views: 3,930 - [ Full Article ]
- Discovery - Lacran
As a young child I started learning about the expectations of the world pretty quickly. While I wanted to walk around without a shirt like a boy I wasn’t allowed. While I wanted to be able to play well past my bedtime I wasn’t all ... Posted: November 28th. 2010 Views: 2,705 - [ Full Article ]
- A Reason to Be Happy: Both Sides of the Divine - PanSpiritus
I suppose you could call this is a queer treatise on the divine. Yet it’s too much of the normal as well. It looks to the Union of the God and Goddess as a source of inspiration. This source of inspiration is clarified by contempl ... Posted: November 30th. 2008 Views: 4,105 - [ Full Article ]
- Understanding - Glowfox

- Gender and Paganism - Janice Van Cleve
I used to think that paganism was this happy, liberal, fun, exciting adventure, where all the domineering, straight jacketed moralisms of patriarchal religion were out the window. I could probably be forgiven my naiveté, seeing as ... Posted: January 27th. 2008 Views: 8,757 - [ Full Article ]
- From Catholicism to Wicca - Janice Van Cleve
I left my Catholic faith on the floor of the Washington State House of Representatives on March 2, 1993. (For all I know, it may still be banging around there, but most likely it was long since buried by the less spiritual matters ... Posted: November 4th. 2007 Views: 7,429 - [ Full Article ]
- The Dark Moon and HIV - Mystik Astiroth
I would have to say that the Goddess Hecate has changed my life. I was very drawn to her for some reason in the very beginning of my path as a witch. I believe it has to do with being drawn to the underworld and the darker aspects ... Posted: October 7th. 2007 Views: 6,753 - [ Full Article ]
- Closets Within Closets - Shadow
It’s no secret that the Wiccan and Pagan community is, for the most part, a tolerant and accepting environment for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people. Hell, in part, it’s that very factor that attracted me the most to ... Posted: June 4th. 2006 Views: 11,035 - [ Full Article ]
