The last few thousand years of human history might be called the Age of Patriarchy, when heterosexual men aggressively established their power over others. For this to happen they first had to destroy the spiritual power held by women and queers — at the time of Jesus Christ, religious life around the whole of the Mediterranean Sea had long been led by women and effeminate priests — the next few centuries would see straight men gradually imposing their desire for order, structure and control via the destruction of pagan temples and eradication of the memory of the sacred roles of same-sex loving and gender-variant individuals. The men of war shut down our temples, rounded up the pagans and slaughtered them.
In many Wiccan traditionsit's common to have an equal number of male and female members. This is because, among other things, it helps create an equal balance of male and female energy.

It seems to me that having an online directory would make it easier to find speakers and presenters for Queer Pagan specific events, conferences, and gatherings. Please feel free to share the online directory with folks who might be looking for speakers and presenters at events too. The one major criterion I have for being linked there is that the publication be somehow specific to Queer Pagans.
