This ground breaking new Festival of Queer Spirituality is bringing together an astounding line up of performers, activists and spiritual facilitators, combining their skills and talents in the name of the growth of love, community and awareness in the queer universe.
LGBTQI life has made huge achievements in the last 5 decades in the areas of sexual, social and political freedom. Queer Spirit Festival gathers together activists, artists and community builders who are taking us all to the next frontier, the spiritual frontier - which is not about whether we are religious or not, or which religion we relate to.
The spiritual frontier is the search for who we are at the core level of our being, both individually in our souls and collectively as the queer portion of the human family. It is also about manifesting our core nature, bringing out the best of who we are, developing and celebrating our talents, freeing ourselves from mental and emotional barriers and wounds that block our energy and our joy.
The queer spiritual frontier is about gay caterpillars transitioning to multidimensional butterflies, ugly ducklings becoming swans, sleeping beauties awakening…. it is about the deviants becoming divine.
