A R-EVOLUTION IS HAPPENING IN QUEER LIFE
HUMANITY IS AT AN EXTREME POINT OF POLARISED VIEWS…..
on the one hand, we got this:
“At present, the most egregious violators of LGBTI peoples’ human rights include these countries:
- Egypt (“one of the world’s biggest jailers of gay men,” where LGBTI community leaders estimate that as many as 500 LGBTI people have been sent to prison.)
- Saudi Arabia (In one recent year, religious police reportedly arrested and convicted a total of 260 people.)
- Morocco (Dozens of trials for same-sex intimacy are cited by LGBTI rights advocates each year, but are rarely reported in the media.)
- Nigeria (Dozens of arrests have been reported, but Nigerian media rarely follow up with reports about any subsequent trials).
- India (almost 1,500 people were arrested in 2015 under India’s colonial-era anti-gay law, but it was unclear how many of those arrests were actually for sexual assault rather than for consensual same-sex relations.)”
while on the other we get rational science falling in love with our ‘biological’ function…
‘homosexuality is nature’s way of ensuring the truly gifted aren’t burdened with children’ ‘homosexuality is a catalyst to connect different groups of people together’
and excited clairvoyants with good gay friends wax emotional about gay men’s nature:
BUT WHERE ARE WE TO BE FOUND EXPRESSING OUR OWN DISCOVERIES AND VIEWS ON WHO WE REALLY ARE AS PART OF THE HUMAN FAMILY?
it’s early days in the journey of LGBTIQ people defining ourselves, going beyond those limiting lettered labels and telling the world who we are
but those days are arriving:
HERE ARE TWO EVENTS COMING UP IN THE UK IN SUMMER 2017 WHERE MANY PIONEERING QUEERS WHO ARE PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES OF WHAT IT MEANS TO BE LGBTIQ WILL BE GATHERED….
QUEER SPIRIT FESTIVAL 2017… Wiltshire, UK, July 26-30. Camping festival of queer spirituality for 500 cosmic queers.
“Queer Spirit seeks to reclaim, reveal and release the divine magic in the body, in sexuality, and help us to heal shame, guilt and fear (around the physical form and sexual expression) that we may have inherited from the mainstream culture… so that our capacity for love, ecstasy and joy expands, our flesh itself become radiant with compassionate soul power.
“Queer Spirit also takes us on the journey to Self via transcendence of binary male/female, light/shadow models of existence. It takes us into the exploration of connection with community and nature as well. Community is where we find true healing and support in our personal transformation. Nature is our teacher.
“For many thousands of years before men wrote down words said to be God’s and used them to impose order on society, the divine spoke to humans through nature – through trees and plants and creatures, through the sun, moon, planets and stars, through elementals, faeries and other magical winged beings. We may have forgotten the language but they are still speaking, and the language of nature is the language of the soul, waiting in us to be remembered and spoken again. Listening is key here. Listening to nature and listening to each other. Also watching, smelling, feeling, tasting. The senses take us into the many layers of divine presence that exist in every moment everywhere. Time in nature wakes us the deeper levels of our senses and time with other queers in safe, sacred space in nature opens up a universe of possibilities….
“500 Queers in Nature. It’s going to be earthy, emotional, radical and r-evolutionary.”
RADICAL FAERIE GLOBAL GATHERING and SYMPOSIUM on Queer rights, health, history and culture….. Northumberland, UK August 8-17, 2017.
“Queer people of every culture on the planet joining together!
“Let us consider and articulate the gifts we possess and the crucial role we play in contributing to all cultures around the globe. Where are we respected and honored? Where and why are we misunderstood and oppressed? What strategies can we create to connect our queer spirits and form a worldwide network of loving companions? What support would we appreciate and what support can we offer to each other?
“Through sharing our stories and celebrating our strengths, let’s co-create a planetary wave of love and consciousness and recognition for all LGBTIQA+ people. Come and add your voice!”
