Twin Cities Pagan Pride 2013

A good crowd attended Twin Cities Pagan Pride (TCPP,) at Minnehaha Park this year. Many stayed the majority of, or the whole day. You were in public, as a self declared Pagans, talking to anyone who found you interesting that walked by,  I know I talked to at least a few non-Pagan people who left knowing more and feeling better about a world where Pagans exist next to them. For those of us who like the idea of similar people getting one last chance to hug and appreciate each other despite our differences before winter sets in,, it was a perfect day.

Why spend a day of your valuable life, heck, your Saturday, at Twin Cities Pagan Pride (TCPP) ?  If you believe Pagans need to be supported in their desire for public acceptance, you were there.  What if you are a Pagan, what did you get out of attending ?  There was a full schedule of many different types of ritual to experience, Music, dance, and many booths selling items, promoting ideas, or experiences were on hand to entertain you, If you are a Pagan you did get to see, talk to, and connect with many old friends and make some new ones.  Saturday at TCPP it was also hot.  I guess that was a bonus for Minnesotans, You got to spend one of the last days of hot weather you might get this year, outdoors with friends.

Green Phallus tours TC Pagan Pride – Photo Essay

The Green Phallus toured Twin Cities Pagan Pride on Saturday.  The story of his  origins may be found here. He touched many people, was rejected by some, caused some to drop to the ground in awe, and offered his experience to those who opened themselves to the Green Phallus.

Jill - “ One wonders if one is worthy to embrace the Green Phallus, but I do so with no regret. I like the realistic testicals, one is slightly larger than the other. I like it around my neck , it feels sweaty yet cosy.”

The Green Phallus welcomes companionship at the Minnesota Ren Fair, and friendship on facebook, where any comments can be directed regarding his TCPP visit.

Paul Eaves, and often Teri Starnes, are found creating, tending, and dismantling outdoor labyrinths around the Twin Cities. I talked to Paul at TC Pagan Pride on Saturday.

How long have you been making labyrinths?

The Farm in the City Labyrinth, Concordia College

Nine years, well actually it started way back in 2000 with a kids group, and we created a labyrinth at a university as part of a summer gardening program. It was there for two years, and then the university decided they wanted to build a library on top of it. While I was bust traveling around the world, a group of volunteers dug up all the plants and moved them to the other side of the university. Now it is a perennial flower garden labyrinth.
