In The South

5 Days of ‘Queer Community in Action’ on the Land

Besi Besemar February 27, 2017

More than 500 LGBT+ people will gather this summer at the second Queer Spirit Festival to enjoy a packed programme of ceremonies, rituals, performance, workshops, discussions, music, drumming, and dancing.

Queer Spirit Festival is a liberating realm of freedom of self-expression, self-exploration and community creation… of finding the inner peace that comes from communing with nature, and being able to fully be ourselves.

At a magical site in the Wiltshire countryside, surrounded and blessed by nature, like all good festivals there will also be cabaret, cafés (vegetarian & vegan), stalls, spa, healing areas and spaces to chill-out.

As sexuality as well as spirituality will be explored during the festival, there will be some specific adult-only areas. However, this will be a festival with lots to do for people of all ages and children will be very welcome here.

Queer Spirit Festival celebrate the spirituality of LGBT+ people on a global level, with visitors and facilitators coming from around the world.

The festival sponsors the participation of LGBT+ asylum seekers and refugees, with members of Micro Rainbow International coming as their guests.

Performances lined up for 2017 include:

The Funkensteins, Commie Faggots, Maj Ikle, Big Boys Camp, Alice Human, Marc Block, M-Power, Jordyn Leyland, Spoken Word, Adult Cabaret and much more……

Workshops will include:

Drumming, Ecstatic Dance, Shamanic Journeying, Conscious Touch, Yoga, Earth Medicine, Gong baths, Massage, Queer History, Chinese Medicine, Veganism, Nature meditations, Mediumship, Discussions, and Activism.

The Festival Marquee will feature late night DJs playing a range of music types including the Transister Dance Party which is London’s most underground happening; a community party providing an attitude-free zone run by trans and fetish people, where trans dj’s will spin intelligent dance music, conjuring a haven for those who don’t want to blend into the norm.
