Witchcraft & the Queer Counterculture

Both the queer and the witch are, by accounts of modern understanding, the Other. The witch, says Peter Grey, is the one "at the end of the pointed finger." And so is the queer.

About the event

The  relationship between queerness and witchcraft is likewise deep and  tangled, and was wrought together in the pre-modern conception of the  witch, in being transgressive like Medea, Kirke, and Joan of Arc. They  each embody the Sacred Other.

Witchcraft  itself is a response to the oppression of the People and the Land,  whose body forms an active resistance to the mores of conventional  society that wreaks havoc upon all who are marginalized and  dispossessed. Both witches and queers live and dance and fuck in the  cracks of culture, in the dark places of wisdom.

This workshop will explore:

1.  Witchcraft as an historic form of resistance to oppression and likewise  the struggles and narrative of queerness as a form of resistance to  white-supremacist cis-het patriarchy. 

2. The flesh as the Hedge, and  the body of the queer witch as the threshold of ecstasy and  transgression. Self as Other/Other as Self. 

3. Queer sex magic and the Queer Mysteries 

This is an online, virtual event that includes a short ritual with  participants evoking the Queer Mighty Dead and asking for their aid in  our work and in our personal empowerment.

This workshop is dedicated to the memory of the presenter's Magister in the Faery Tradition, Gabriel Carrillo.
