So I'm looking through my Facebook friends' friends and I come across this total hottie witch named Gede Parma. Shameless gay Leo that I am, I immediately reached out and invited Gede (pronounced g'DAY) to be on the show. Much to my delight, he accepted and fast forward several months into the future to July 12, 2012, the date finally arrived! When this magically delicious Aussie sauntered into my lion's den it took all my self restraint not to offer him one of my famous back massages. Instead, I humbly begged his forgiveness for my not being able to find my high-quality audio recorder and instead had to settle for recording this interview on my iPhone. (Siri interrupted one of the questions, and she's been put in time out.)

Ecstatic Witchcraft CVR

In this interview, Gede shares with us how he came to paganism (well, was born into it by some definitions), how it's shaped his outlook on life, and why he's inspired to share his insights with others through his several published books and workshops. He challenges the idea of sacred space as separate space, and refuses to admit the idea of the solitary witch in an infinitely interconnected cosmos. The magical is the mundane (M=m), and from this point of constant connection to the divine we can be in this world here and now and effect positive change through conscious awareness and activism.

Gede also discusses his books, including his latest, "Ecstatic Witchcraft: magic, philosophy & trance in the shamanic craft," which is available through Llewellyn Worldwide and pretty much any bookshop. You can also learn more about this fascinating and very charming young pagan teacher at www.gedeparma.com. And try to catch him while he's still in the U.S. doing his book tour through the end of July 2012!!

Most pagans don’t know the name Edmund “Eddie” Buczynski (aka Minos Gwydion-Hyakinthos), but they should. In the span of only a few years in the 1970s, Eddie established three living traditions of modern neopaganism—the New York Welsh Tradition, the Wica Tradition, and the Minoan Tradition, which includes the Minoan Brotherhood, Minoan Sisterhood, and the Cult of Rhea, or the Cult of the Double Axe. This founding elder stood at the convergence of the hippy culture, gay liberation movement, and the rise of neopaganism in New York City, and took aspects of each to create unique and important contributions to neopagan religion and culture.

Bull of Heaven by Michael Lloyd

In this episode of Eat My Pagan Ass, Luckylicious interviews special guest Michael G. Lloyd (aka Garan Du), a Minoan high priest, co-founder of the Between the Worlds men’s gathering, and author of Bull of Heaven: The Mythic Life of Eddie Buczynski and the Rise of the New York Pagan, a book that some consider the sequel to Margot Adler's seminal history on neopaganism, Drawing Down the Moon (Ms. Adler provides the foreword to Bull of Heaven). As Michael shares in this episode, researching Eddie’s life and its impact on neopaganism was a labor of love that put him in touch with many of our community’s most respected and well-known leaders. As a spiritual descendant of Eddie’s work, Michael hopes that through this book more neopagans will become familiar with Eddie, a man he calls “the Gerald Gardner of the gay pagan community.”

One sweltering early September morning at Gay Witch Camp (aka Between The Worlds queer pagan men's gathering) in southern Ohio, I was lugging my camping gear to and fro when who should happen to wander by and in a grand gesture of chivalry offer me some assistance but none other than the World Famous Pagan Author and Witch, Christopher "Get Off My Robe, Bitch" Penczak?!? It's not every day two of pagandom's most notorious gay witches meet for the first time. The earthworms will sing of our fateful encounter for generations to come. As it so happened, being the informed witch that I am (it pays to have dirt on people) I knew Mr. Penczak was going to be there and I was planning to hunt him down and nag him until he agreed to be interviewed. So imagine my delight when he not only found ME but also practically begged me to let him be on the show. Well, what can I say...they don't call me Lucky for nothing. I played hard to get at first, of course, but I consented. He IS world famous, after all.

Luckylicious and Christopher Penczak

Christopher "Get Off My Robe, Bitch" Penczak gets a smooch from Luckylicious.

In this episode of Eat My Pagan Ass podcast, Christopher Penczak dishes ALL to Lucky -- starting from his childhood Catholic porn fantasies wending all the way through his meteoric rise to grand poobah (well, 1/3rd poobah) of a pretty awesome school of witchcraft (but not wizardry...no, including the wizardry curriculum would have opened the school up to threats of copyright infringement from the folks at Hogwarts). Assless chaps are involved, as is much flirting and general silliness, all of which spice up what is a very interesting and informative glimpse into the life of one of modern paganism's most prolific witches and occultists, and explores the Temple of Witchcraft he created with his life partners Steve Kenson and Adam Sartwell.

AS GAY AS IT GETS!

Gay pagans, gay gods, sex magick, frolicking in the forest, and MORE!

ocymvio

Lucky interviews the notoriously fabulous (or is that fabulously notorious?) Ocymvio, a gay pagan who's made his home in NYC and has brought quite a big of magick and fellowship to the gay pagan community there. Founder of the NYC Gay Men's Open Pagan Magick Circle, gypsy born, Minoan Brotherhood member, fashion designer, tarot reader, regular attendee at Between the Worlds and Short Mountain Sanctuary, and all around groovy guy, Ocymvio shares his experiences as a gay pagan and how he puts a little swish into his "Walking the Talk." This episode was recorded at Beltane, so there's a bit of friskiness and quite a lot of vulgarity -- served up just how you badass pagans love to hear it!

See Ocymvio's fashion designs on the web at Gypsycamp Clothing.
