Friday 19th Feb 7pm - ‘The Queer witch of the East will never die’ - a Chariots
Posted on: February 15 2016, 05:41 pm

Dear UKCAB friends - as saunas and LGBT spaces continue to get shut down, there are less spaces for HIV testing and the transmissions will continue rising. Please come here this Friday in East London for this special event. Pls spread the word and don't hesitate to get in contact anytime, dan X

Friday 19th Feb 7pm - Chariots Shoreditch carpark  ‘The Queer witch of the East will never die’ - a Chariots Spell - facebook page click here - https://www.facebook.com/events/232578973745422/

Queer Ancestors,
Come forth!
Stand strong beside us,
Banish this evil from time and space!

As the full moon rises this Friday night, a rainbow coloured spell is cast over East London. Invoked from our queer ancestors and brought forth from the sexual pit of Chariots we cast a spell so glittery that East London will forever be queer. People lovers, Sex lovers, queer lovers, spiritual beings of all shapes and sizes - come and join us to mourn the loss of Shoreditch Chariots Sauna and grieve the gentrification of the vanishing of queer spaces with a celebration of our spiritual and sexual powers. Come bless the sacred ground with a blessing of your fabulous faggot and dyke cum (optional). Mixed in a bowl with glitter, it shall be sprinkled on the ground, to mark the space forever. Accompanied with glitter everywhere we shall draw our sexual powers in chalk on the floor and purify the space with queer love forever more.

As the pink flares puff over the sky, the sparkle of Freddie Mercury, pride of Divine and all the rage of victims of homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, HIV-phobia, capitalism, patriarchy and the loss of queer space will fire up our declaration of queer power. We call on the spirits of Ethel Waters, Allen Ginsberg, Edward Carpenter, Walt Whitman, Ma Rainey, Divine, The Cockettes, Harvey Milk, Harry Hay, Alan Turing, Frida Kahlo, Marsha P. Johnson to fill the air.

Soulless, inaccessible luxury flats and profit-hungry property developers are taking over our city. We refuse to be washed out, to assimilate and for our glittering souls to be squashed under the iron fist of the heteronorm. In so many ways chariots sauna was a vehicle for gay men to find each other, but now we deserve to create better, more connected and caring, holistic spaces for the next stage of the journey.

Come with cum (in a bag), drums, pink flares, candles, red glittery shoes, songs to sing, spells to chant and love to celebrate our ever-lasting queer-dom. For the property developers may have money, but we have the love.

Love, East London’s Queer Underbelly including members of Radical Faeries, ACT UP LONDON, The Glory and many more.

All magical contributions welcome - please email queerwitchofeastlondon@gmail.com to be a speaker, add your support or if you have a press request.

Friday 19th Feb 7pm - Chariots Shoreditch carpark - 1 Fairchild St, London EC2A 3NS

Please learn this in preparation of our collective spell - ‘The Queer Ones written by Storm Faerywolf’

From the Lavender Lands, and the space in between,
From the cracks in the world, in the order of things,
We summon the Queer Ones, the fount of our love,
To rise from below and descend from above,
To bridge now the gap that exists in our hearts,
To heal the pain that has torn us apart.
Bring us your laughter and lend us your song.
Join in the struggle endured for so long,
That we now might taste of the water of life,
And be free from the curse that has caused us such strife.
Let us remember our power and place
Of our home from the stars, in the sweet ones embrace,
To reclaim now the ancient blessing once given, from the Goddess of Earth, the Goddess of Heaven:
For ours is the wisdom of moon and of earth,
We stand at the gate between death and of birth.
As the fathers of beauty, as the mothers of souls,
we are healers of spirit, and we walk between worlds.
