The Gay Men’s Mystery School, which forms the core of the Brotherhood’s clergy training program, was created in 2000 to train gay men in the magickal arts in order to reclaim their rightful places as healers, mystics, teachers, shamans, and ordained priests. In the summer of 2004, several of the school’s initiates gathered with good friends and seekers to envision and build a neo-pagan order for gay, bisexual, and transgender men who love men, capable of existing as a nationwide religious order and beyond.

In 2005 the Brotherhood of the Phoenix officially opened its membership and began performing its rite of passage ritual. At the end of 2005 the Brotherhood incorporated, and at the end of 2006 it achieved national 501(c)3 status as a tax-exempt religious organization.
