    "Queer Spirits: Empowering the Tribe" with Elliott Skaggs and Andrew LeFey

    in LGBT

    Navigating gay culture is tough, we all carry various preconceptions and internalized baggage that can make it difficult to "find our place" in the gay community. Join Host Elliott Skaggs and Special Guest Andrew LeFey as they discuss how to navigate gay culture and the issues involved with it.

    Elliott is a former LGBT student organizer and club president. He got his B.A. degree in Religious Studies from Appalachain State University and did his senior thesis research on the Gay Men's Movement in Contemporary Paganism. His research focused on sociological and psychological perspectives on the issues of internalized homophobia, gay socialization, objectification in gay culture, and gay solidarity. Elliott also has blogged on several of these issues and more both during and after his research which can be accessed through his blog "Searching for Queer Spirit."


    Andrew LeFey has been on the Path of the Witch for around 10 years, and is one of the founders of The Owl’s Well, and education-focused Pagan community in St. Louis, Missouri. He is a member and student of the Temple of Witchcraft, getting ready to start his Third Degree studies this fall. He works in-depth with his Allies amongst the Fey as well as his connection to the Triple Goddess Archetype. He has worked in the Queer community for almost a decade as a Drag Queen as well as working with GLBT Youth Groups in the Nashville and St. Louis areas.

    "Queer Spirits: Empowering the Tribe": Gay Culture Body Issues w/ Oberyn Kunning

    in LGBT

    Join your host Elliott Skaggs with special guest Oberyn Kunning on "Queer Spirits: Empowering the Tribe" on discussing body image issues in gay culture. Many gay men feel they are objectified and/or marginalized both in their gay culture experience. Issues of body take on varying multi-sectional issues of age, race, size, objectification, and even gender expression. We escape a heteronormative mold often to encounter the homonormative one. This episode we will discuss these issues and more as they relate to gay male body issues.


    I am your Host Elliott Skaggs, here is some info on my background:


    Elliott is a former activist, academic, and community organizer. He earned his BA degree at Appalachian State University and did his senior thesis on Gay Socialization covering issues ranging from objectification, internalized homophobia, and building models of gay solidarity. He is also a former president and founder of a LGBT student organization at Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College.


    Joining us today is our guest Oberyn Kunning:


    Oberyn Kunning is an activist working along multiple intersections of organizing, including communities of size/Fatness, queerness, feminism, anti-racism, anti-colonialism, anti-Capitalist, and disability. They are a witch, partner, father, teacher, and co-founder, director, producer, and performer at the new queer-occult studio Drewary Lodge.

    History Today

    in News

    On the inaugural edition of History Today, host Paul Angel, the managing editor of The Barnes Review (TBR) history magazine, will be discussing a variety of historical matters with an eye toward how they affect our lives today.


    The riots in Ferguson and Baltimore are still on everyone’s mind. The media seems obsessed with giving a forum to disgruntled blacks who are having a hard time admitting that one’s life is what one makes of it.  (And one’s culture, as well.) Besides the bugaboos of “white entitlement” and “white racism,” slavery, of course, is the “reason” many blacks use to justify the sad state of the urban areas in which they dwell.


    With that in mind, we will be discussing several historical events that deny this narrative.


    Hundreds of thousands of Irish were sold into slavery by the British and brought to North America and the Caribbean. The men were literally worked to death, and the women used to produce an army of half-breed slaves. The Irish were the first slaves brought to the New World—not the Africans.  But somehow, the Irish overcame this and thrived in America.


    Michael Rockefeller, the son of the late Nelson Rockefeller, ventured off to Papua/New Guinea in the last 1950s and early 1960s to collect the art of the head-hunting cannibal Asmat people of the island. What happened to him after that is one of the great missing person’s cases of the 20th century. But now that case has been solved—and it is a shocker.


    We will be discussing the black Asmat people and their strange and violent culture which bears an amazing resemblance to the culture of inner-city black America.


    With Paul will be his partner in historical crime, Dave Gahary, the host of “Who’s the Bad Guy?”


    Please join us and take a politically incorrect tour through history from a non-mainstream perspective.
