Pagans Supporting Marriage Equality

rainbow ringsPagans are among the many who are taking part in Marriage Equality Support events this week in Washington, DC and across the nation, as the Supreme Court of the United States hears two cases on this issue. 

Circle Sanctuary Senior Minister Rev. Selena Fox will be taking part in three events in Washington, D.C. and will be hosting a special Pagan Community forum on internet radio on this civil rights quest.

Selena has been active in the quest for LGBTQ civil rights for more than forty years and was co-founder of the College of William and Mary Lambda Alliance (previously known as Gay Liberation) in 1971.  Selena conducts same sex marriage rites and handfastings as part of her Pagan wedding services available through Circle Sanctuary.
