Between the Worlds: A Queer Pagan Brotherhood Celebrates 10 Years!
Event Details: For details and registration info visit: www.betweentheworlds.org
Queer men have, for many years now, sought spiritual alternatives to the mainstream religious paths that have historically excluded them or even condemned them. While New Age, Pagan, and Earth-centered paths and gatherings generally welcome queer spiritual seekers, they are often heterocentric in outlook and seldom address issues specific to their needs.
Our Vision: The Between the Worlds Gathering was designed to provide a safe place for men who love men to explore alternative spiritual practices and paths, to empower themselves, and to plant the seeds of spiritual renewal within the gay community. Between the Worlds (BTW) offers rituals, workshops, drumming, dancing, performances, a marketplace, and sacred safe space for queer men to learn, worship, network, and explore.
Our History: BTW is the brainchild of a dedicated group of gay and bi men from a number of different Pagan paths who were looking for an outlet tailored to their specific spiritual needs. First proposed during the 1999 Pagan Spirit Gathering, BTW was founded in 2002 and meets annually around the Autumnal Equinox.
Our Matron & Patron Deities: We honor many diverse paths, traditions, and Deities at BTW; however, two Divinities hold a special place because of their association with boundary-breaking and self-empowerment: Hekate, the Triple Goddess of the Crossroads, and Dionysos, the God of Wine and Ecstasy. These Deities, and many others, are honored with annual rituals at BTW.
Our Home: The setting for the festival is a clothing-optional private campground in the rolling hills of southeastern Ohio. Surrounded by meadows and groves of burr oak, shagbark hickory, and sassafras trees, our men can shut out the distractions of the mundane world in order to build a dream they can carry home in their hearts to warm them throughout the year.
Our Community: BTW attendees are men who love men (including post-operative female-to-male transsexuals) , ages 18 and older, drawn from spiritual traditions including, but not limited to: Pagan, Nature Spirituality, Witchcraft, Norse, Hindu, Buddhism, Wicca, New Age, Thelema, Radical Faerie, Druid, Shaman, Hellenic, Ceremonial Magick, Gnostic, and African Diasporic paths. All sincere spiritual seekers are welcome, regardless of the path they walk. For a few days, we invite you to come walk it with us.
