The Brotherhood of the Phoenix is a neo-pagan order for Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender men who love men. The mandate of our order is to help our community overcome the burden of societal labels. We reject the limiting beliefs and prejudices of modern culture and religions that preach intolerance and hate. We stress a simple neo-pagan principle: “Find the Divine within your own experience.”

To impart this principle, we hold public rituals near the eight common holidays of neo-pagan tradition where we celebrate the embodiment of the gay male divine through the life-cycle of human experience. We are committed to applying the principles of Activism, Outreach, and Education to build positive relationships that benefit our community and our world.
