The Pent O’Clock News Issues Pride Day Challenge to Pagans
All Pagans in North America Encouraged to Participate in National Media Blitz in September

In the September edition of The Pent O’Clock News a challenge was issued to all Pagans in North America to photograph and record audio and video from Pagan events and send them to national and local media outlets. Co-anchor Carl Neal explains the challenge in the September episode (which also includes stories about Starhawk’s Oregon visit, Salem’s Peace Festival and Community Drum Circle, and more) . Most national and local media outlets have programs where anyone can submit stories and recordings directly to them (such as CNN’s iReport program) .

The large and growing Pagan Community rarely gets attention from national media and when attention is given it is often negative or loaded with inaccurate stereotypes. Since September is the month when most Communities celebrate Pagan Pride Day (PPD) , for the entire month Pagans are encouraged take their smart phones, cameras, camcorders, tablets, and other devices so that national media outlets will be inundated with photos and recordings of Pagans celebrating and being themselves. Photos and video can be sent directly to nearly any media outlet so individuals are encouraged to select one outlet/broadcaster and send photos and video throughout the day at every PPD celebration. If everyone who attends a PPD were to send one or two photos to the national media, they would be overwhelmed and positive attention would be drawn to our Community.

Everyone is cautioned not to take pictures of people at private Pagan events without their knowledge and permission. We want to celebrate our Community with this media blitz, not to accidentally “out” a Pagan who is still “in the broom closet”.
The full challenge can be seen in the September episode of The Pent O’Clock News and in a recent episode of Magick Moment (episode 14, Pagans & the Media) , which can be found at
