04-08-2023 - Queer Devotion: Liberating Your Spiritual Practice

A spiritual practice can be an intensely powerful and affirming thing, but for many LGBTQIA2S+ individuals, it is instead a frustrating and alienating one. When religious institutions don’t want us and modern alternative spiritualities repeat the same tired gender essentialist norms, where do we turn for a vibrant and deeply felt spiritual practice that includes and celebrates us?

We do what queers have always done with community and culture: we build our own.

In this 2.5-hour class, we will explore how to create an affirming, inspirational, and supportive devotional practice that uplifts us in our queer entirety. We will:

  • Connect to the divine queer in existing gods, goddesses, and goddexes of history, in our revered transcestors and ancestors of our queer lineage, and in ourselves
  • Queer the idea of deity by looking to figures of folklore, myth, and legend for creating new goddexes and new, queer parables
  • Liberate our devotional practice by asking what it means not only to be devoted to a queer deity, but to devoted queerly
  • Offer practical starting places for getting to know your queer goddexes through queer devotion

Spirituality, like gender, is intensely subjective and experiential. In the nature of the queer spirit, this class does not aim to prescribe one single way to have a queer spiritual practice, but instead to crack open the myriad possibilities for you to build your own, personal practice of self-defined and self-directed queer devotion.

Please bring a journal or notebook for exercises.

In preparation for the workshop, please gather the following items:

  • Your journal + a pen
  • Tarot deck
