I was trying to wait until June to do this, but I couldn’t wait.
As a queer witch,I find it hard to find resources on lgbtq+ magick.Alot of modern day witchery and paganism has a big emphasis on cishetronormativity,so us queer folk often get missed out. So I have decided to compile a list of lgbtq+ magick!
- Colour Magick
This one’s quite simple. Pride flags are a huge part of lgbtq+ culture,so exploring how the different colours can be used for spells is a good way to combine magick and queerness.
Alot of lgbtq+ identities have corresponding symbols to them,such as the venus symbol for w/nblw or the mars symbol for m/nblm. See how you can combine alchemical/planetary symbols and pride.
- Honour an lgbtq+ deity
Apollo,Dionysus,Isis,Seth etc all have a few lgbtq+ myths surrounding them. Check out this article for more information on lgbtq+ deities Make an offering to one or more of these deities. Ask them to keep all queer folk safe.
- Honour a deity of love
Aphrodite,Eros,Hathor etc. Honour them, ask for their blessing on a relationship. Ask them to protect queer folk.
- Honour yourself!
Pride is all about loving yourself,so make sure to do that! Take some time to do some self-care. Allow yourself to exist without judgement.
- Honour lgbtq+ people from the past📚
This one is inspired by this video from Sam Wise about a queer ancestor altar they created. This is a good one to honour and celerbrate those who helped fight for lgbtq+ rights and those who stood up for themselves.
Other general stuff
- Learn about queer topics
- Support queer creators and buisnesses

I hope this inspires people and to my fellow queer folk,your aren’t alone
Blessed Be and happy (almost) pride!
