Gay and a Witch

A lifelong pagan who is a gay man speaks about the gay and pagan scenes in the 1970s.

Mo Batchelor is a witch and gay man, now nearing 50, first drawn to Paganism and witchcraft in the early to mid-seventies. His pagan spirituality was launched as a child by Alan Garner’s books, then shaped by the 1970s counterculture, including the Maxine and Alex Sanders phenomenon. Explorations of other spiritual traditions followed, including Sufism. His own current (evolving) pagan path emerges from all these influences. In the course of 35 years he has seen attitudes towards LGBT issues change considerably, both within society and within the world of modern Paganism. Tonight he will chat about his magical and spiritual life; about his observations of pagans and sexuality; impressions of the witchcraft scene in the mid 1970s; and about his pagan life todayTonight’s is part of Treadwell’s ‘Interview with a Witch’ series.
