About The Event
In this thoughful, lively lecture, Julian Vayne dives into the hot topic of the year: magical cultures in connection to concepts of gender, polarity, sexuality and trans identity. He shares a couple of the world's sacred gender-bending myths and talks about some trans-positive magico-cultural spaces. Tales of exclusion and the repression of queer magic are shared, too. He outlines the heteronormative ideas which were prevalent in 20th century occulture, relating how they were challenged by practitioners of the time. The question is raised: what can gender fluidity offer the spiritual development of our species?
