SOLD OUT .Witchcraft and Gay Liberation 1969/2019

Monday 18 February @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

| Deposit: £9

Witchcraft and Gay Liberation 1969/2019
Lecture – Dr Brooke Palmieri

Sold out




American author Leo Louis Martello (1930-2000) is best known for  Weird Ways of Witchcraft (1969) and Witchcraft: The Old Religion (1973).  Martello combined the spiritual with the political as a founding member of the Gay Liberation Front (GLF). Tonight’s speaker introduces this remarkable figure, and shows how Martello’s work, writings, and friendships advocate nothing less than a revolution in the history of witchcraft. Martello was among the first to champion a witchcraft that was inclusive of gender non-conformity and sexual dissidence, mostly by emphasising those aspects from the history of witchcraft itself. Join us for a remarkable evening, celebrating fifty years since the Stonewall Riots.

Dr Brooke Sylvia Palmieri is a writer, educator and bookseller. Palmieri is editor of  Printing History and owner of Camp Books, which specialises in new and used works that celebrate queer history.
