Can a religion that places heavy focus on balancing male and female energies and uses wombs and fertility as symbols of feminine power ever be truly inclusive and welcoming to queer and gender variant people? Lois Shearing explores what it means to be queer and Pagan.
For this month’s theme of Book Club, Lois Shearing reviews second anthology The Fire Eater’s Lover, which celebrates all things related to performance. Whether its getting up on stage, dressing up for a night out, or seducing a lover, The Fire Eater’s Lover heaves with the beauty of all the rituals and tribulations of everyday life.
Lois Shearing explores the ways in which bisexual erasure and over sexualised on-screen representations creates an environment in which being bisexual is seen as a behaviour rather than an identity.
