The radfae.org web site exists to pull together Radical Faerie information: links to resources and web pages, news, information, and pointers to other faerie lists. Our site is also available to host various faerie projects.
At the Beltane ’98 Wolf Creek gathering, a number of us got together to share ideas about creating a radical faerie web site. There were faerie web pages all over the internet, and we hoped to create a central place where they could be listed. RadFae.org is the result. A handful of us put this site together, but no one can keep up with all of the local gatherings and activities. If you know about a gathering, please send the info to websters at radfae dot org, so we can list it here.RadFae.org is managed by the radfae websters (currently 2 of us), and we’re open for new members and volunteers. We have a mailing list of 17. If you’re part of the extended faerie community, you can join us. Just send an email to websters at radfae dot org.
Who are the Radical Faeries?
Nobody speaks for Radical Faeries as a whole; certainly not us! We’re keeping our process as open as possible, so this site can reflect the community as a whole. Our main goal is to provide a neutral clearing-house, which can point to (or host) faerie sites with a variety of perspectives. Space is available for more faerie-related projects. You, too, could be www.radfae.org/somebody. Got your own pages already? We can put a link from here.
Generally, we tend to be gay men who look for a spiritual dimension to our sexuality;many of us are healers of one kind or another.
Our shared values include feminism, respect for the Earth, and individual responsiblity rather than hierarchy. Many of us are Pagan (nature-based religion).
Our defining events are Faerie Gatherings, where we’ll get together for an extended retreat, usually in the woods, separated from the outside world. A lot of that time is spent in “heart circles,” where we open up emotionally.
Of course, that’s just this circle’s attempt at a definition.
