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
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.
