Show Notes Chapter Markers

Happy Pride Month! As proud card carrying members of the Alphabet Mafia, Aradia and Liz are excited to talk about the intersection of queerness and spirituality this week - and we only go off the rails a couple times! Join us as we talk about the overlap in the two communities, tips for de-gendering your energy and practice, and have story time where we talk about all the ways in which the gods were hella gay. 

We've got some book recs if these topics interest you further, & some queer witch swag if you want to wear your pride - but beware: here there be spoilers for various queer representation in media! (Show notes will have the time stamps so you can skip spoilers if you want)
