Pagan Polyaffiliation: A Panel and Discussion about Identifying and Practicing Multiple Religious Paths – Just Like the Rest of the World Does
Limited Capacity seats available

We are a religiously curious people; we also know from experience that our minds and our spirits are larger than one religion, culture, or practice can contain. We all combine traditions (oh, yes you do!) and multiple cultural backgrounds, yet how often has someone in the Pagan community told you that you had to commit to one path, tradition, or pantheon if you’re “serious” about Paganism. We’re here to tell you that isn’t true – and when you study world cultures, you see it never has been. The panel will share their stories of polyaffiliation, and what benefit that brings to not only our community, but to religious thought and practice generally. Come bring your many-faceted self to the talk.

Paganism and the LGBTQ+ Experience
Limited Capacity seats available

The pagan community is diverse in its traditions, practices, and experiences. The same is true for the LGBTQ+ population. Messages from the denominate culture about how religion is to be done and how sexuality is to be practiced are loud. Join this panel of diverse spiritual traditions and sexualities as they discuss how different ways view and practice. This panel is constructed of members from several generations and pagan paths. From Asatru to Ifa, from Wicca to Anderson Feri Tradition, the ways in which each of these paths celebrates queer sexuality is unique and special. Join this first ever LGBTQ+ and Religion panel at Paganicon. Q&A from the audience is welcome.  Hosted by Markus K. Ironwood, of the Arcane Academy Podcast.
