Archive for the 'Minoan Brotherhood' Category

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.”

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.
