Chapter: 62. Is Paganism Queer?

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.45529


The term "queer" encompasses diverse gender identities. Neopagan communities provide a spiritual refuge for non-heterosexual individuals marginalised by conventional religions. Queer individuals connect with mythological figures such as Odin and Cernunnos to create new histories and to reconnect with their cultural heritage. This intersection of Paganism and queerness highlights the role of spirituality in creating inclusive spaces for diverse identities.
