Description: As we near the end of October, this is when the veil between our world and the spiritual world becomes the thinnest. In this workshop we will burn the veil, literally and figuratively, and celebrate local queers who have lost their lives fighting for our rights. There is much attention to LGBTQ activists of the past on a national level, but what about our locals who fought and have not received the attention they deserve. Additionally, this workshop will include rituals to inspire not only writing, but to give love and strength to the queer spirits around us and within us.
