A History of Radical Faeries:
The Faeries trace the origin of their movement's name to a "Spiritual
Conference for Radical Faeries" called in 1979 by Harry Hay,
John Burnside, Don Kilhefner, and Mitch Walker in Benson, Arizona.
Originally consisting of gay men, the movement has spread throughout
the world over the past decades since, in tandem with the larger
gay rights movement, challenging the commercialization and patriarchal
aspects of modern gay life while celebrating pagan constructs and
rituals, and adapting rural living and environmentally sustainable
concepts to modern technologies as part of human creative expression.
Faeries tend to be fiercely independent, anti-establishment and
community-focused. Some embody a feminized ideal, while others embody
a fluid spectrum of gender expression -- feminine to masculine and
all points between -- as a path towards transcending the limits
of human social conditioning. Radical Faeries vary greatly from
region to region and often commune at large gatherings timed with
the seasons and solar system, especially the Equinox and Solstice.
Today, Radical Faeries embody a wide range of genders and sexual
orientations, and most sanctuaries are open to all. Radical Faerie
communities practice "queer-themed spirituality" associated
with radical politics, paganism or neopaganism, feminism, gender
liberation, and may encompass any and all religions or a lack of
About the gallery:
Antebellum Gallery is located in the heart of downtown
Hollywood. The term antebellum is Latin for"before war".
While it commonly refers to a more romantic Gone With the Wind
era, we find ourselves again today with American culture at odds
with political / religious / social agendas that threaten to blow
the lid off its foundations at any given moment.
Steeped in Victorian nuances with a salon style, Antebellum is intended
as a hybrid of artistic, cultural, and political iconoclasm.
Gallery Hours: Wednesday - Saturday, 1:00
