LGBTQ Pagans Send Beltane Wishes

29/04/2021

We have arrived at MayDay also known as Beltane. This ancient pagan festival is marked as International Workers Day in many counties, taking up a tradition of carnival and subversion, when the rigid social order of agraian societies could be upset. Glastonbury's pagan bookstore The Goddess and the Green Man notes that “. It is about sexuality and sensuality, passion, vitality and joy. And about conception. A brilliant moment in the Wheel of the Year to bring ideas, hopes and dreams into action”. Elements of ancient pagan rites have survived into contemporary English folk practice. The May pole in many villages is phallic and potent. Once more, LGBTQ pagan groups encourage people to celebrate in accordance with social distancing, but look forward to the lifting of restrictions during the coming summer.
