Do people who experiment with their sexuality across gender boundaries, feel pushed towards neopagan and mystical expressions of faith? Not least because Christianity - whether as a cause or expression of popular societal values - sets a precendent and justification for the expulsion of people seen as "deviant" from mainstream society? Perhaps someone who is gay, bisexual, or lesbian, is going to spend some time on the fringes of general society anyway (?) - but is the sense of movement from being pushed from the mainstream, or simply attracted to that which is outside of it? More specifically, does neopaganism become a form of magnet for people outside of heterosexual constraints, partly because there is no mainstream proscription against personal sexual preference, but also because neopaganism is also sometimes pointed to as an "enmey" of conservative Christianity as with "homosexuality" and other acts of "sin"? Heavy stuff, eh? Reason I ask is because I finally got around to buying an album by Visage - and the song "Damned Don't Cry" simply creates a sense of separation from society. The lyrics themselves are also very reminiscent of the superb Bronski Beat song "Small Town Boy", whose lyrisc and music video really emphasised a sense of separation. So when it comes to being homosexual and pagan - does it feel like being pushed towards it, pulled towards it, or a mixture of both outside of simple generalisations? Is the sense of separation real? And if so, to what degree does neopaganism as a spiritual path help individuals feel a sense of belonging, if at all? Hope it's not too invasive or personal a question to ask.
