    Hi there!

    I'm Kurt, and I'm a born and raised Celtic Pagan from southern Canada. My parents did their best to teach me the basics of other religions, but aren't particularly knowledgeable about them. Although I'm not looking to change my faith, I've always found myself compelled to learn about the views of others, and find that other spiritual and religious people are the most intriguing to talk to, regardless of whether they share my religion or otherwise.

    I'm 21, and besides religion, I enjoy video games, writing poetry, a wide variety of music, speaking at LGBTQIA rights demonstrations and snuggling with any animals I can get my arms around!!

    Shalom and welcome. You are sure to learn a lot here, but maybe not in the way you imagine.

    Enjoy.

    Whatever you do: give the Amish on here some wide berth and stay out of their DIR. They are vicious on here.

    .

    Welcome aboard Kurt. Got a question for you. Just recently we had a discussion about the "Q" in the LGBTQ acronym. Now I see it's been added to in a way I've never seen before: LGBTQIA. So, what do the "I" and "A" stand for?

    I is for Intersex, someone who is born with both or indeterminate genitals not matching those of "male" or "female", sometimes pejoratively referred to hermaphrodites, which is actually only a correct term for non-mammals!

    A is for Asexual/Aromantic, people who don't experience any sexual or romantic attraction to anyone of any gender

    I do a lot of public speaking and sensitivity seminars for the community, so please don't hesitate to ask anything! Hope this helps! :)

    excellent! i'm very excited to get to know everyone. the few other polytheists i've met have been mostly other Celtic Recons, a few Wiccans and a couple eclectics. it's nice to meet others that are the same but different! ;)

    Cool. Most of us are Germanic Heathens but there's a few who follow other traditions, such as I. :)

    Well i would stay away from religion right now. Its very "normal" But i am going to steer you to someone you just might understand maybe. Although sounds like you are a city kid. Which requires serious therapy. Like hiking etc.
    Hey city kid pagan why are birth defects rarer than unicorns?

    Here is a link to an interesting person.
