All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
I was talking to a stranger at a doctors office the other day when they noticed my pentagram..they said "oh your a pagan". I said yes i am...they immediatelly replied " you must be a lesbian then". I asked why the person assumed that...they said that most pagans are gay from their observation..I was stunned. do you think that alot of lgbt are pagan?
Hard to say about up here in NJ because I've only interacted briefly with one group I consider friendly but not overly inclusive. They require you to take a bunch of their classes and things to be initiated and thus able to go to all of their events; I'm a solitaire so that's not my groove. I just like to be able to attend a ritual or event now and then when I can. However, down in Texas where I was MUCH more active in the community, I'd say maybe half of my friends were LGBTQ+, polyamorous, open relationships, etc. I know we get a wide variety of sexualities because Paganism, in general, has no rules barring those people while a lot of mainstream religions do. So they end up where they are welcomed without judgment.
On an amusing side note: For some reason, people often assumed I was a lesbian despite the fact that I attended most of the event with a guy on my arm. There were people I'd known for years who looked stunned to find I was living with a guy when he wasn't even the first I'd lived with. I guess some people aren't overly observant?
