Interview on Queer Spirituality

QUEER SPIRIT FESTIVAL, 17-21 August 2023 at Bridwell Park in Devon, UK, is a celebration of the creativity, love and spirituality of LGBTQ+ people. Our theme this year is RECLAIMING QUEER NATURE in all its magical, world-changing, enlightening and liberating potential. I gave this interview to Brian Madigan of about the origins and aims of the festival:

It’s time to reclaim queer nature from the lies that have been told about it. There’s a spiritual evolution going on on planet earth and queers have a crucial role to play in it. In pagan cultures queer nature had spiritual associations, none of them came up with the idea that the creator made something ‘in error’, ‘against nature’ . Pagan traditions teach us how to connect and align ourselves with the earth and the solar system’s natural energies, they bring us into relationship with unconditionally loving divine presence. It’s not just queer sexuality and gender expression that’s been suppressed for centuries – it’s our liberating queer spirit. Modern journey of Gay liberation isn’t complete until it embraces the spiritual, and the spiritual liberation of queer people will be the catalyst for spiritual liberation of the whole world. Shokti
