    Pagan Pride Days are in Full Swing

    As the cooler months are coming upon us, this means for many Pagans and Neo-pagans and the ilk that Pagan Pride Days and Events abound. There are many throughout the country. Pagan Pride Events are established to bring those of like mind, and those who are curious, together. Another function of the events is to educate those who are not familiar with our faith groups on what it is we do and believe.

    Modern Paganism is an umbrella term that can include such religions as Wicca, Druidry, Asatru, Heathenry among many others. Generally speaking we are bound together loosely by our reverence for our Earth Mother and all Her children. I must say “generally” since there is no governing body that determines what is Pagan and what is not. We have no “Holy Writ”. For the most part, our religion and beliefs are born out of experience not revealed to us through the others. There are those within the faith group umbrella that revere the writings of those who have gone before.

    As time goes along I will be working with some of my colleagues to bring stories and updates about these vents and more to this medium. I will do my very best to report on several different Pagan Pride Days and Events that are occurring in the South Eastern United States. It is much easier for me to do this since it happens to be where I live.

    I have arranged to get reports for events that will take place in Auburn (AL), Atlanta (GA), Greenville (SC) and Lafayette (GA). I am trying still to locate a source for reports for events in Raleigh and Belmont (NC).

    I will be posting pictures and reports for these events.

    If you are interested in any of these events, please Google them and look into attending.
