A local woman is running a full moon circle event to raise funds for the Northern Rivers LGBTQIA+ group Queer Family, based in the Byron Shire.

Kiki Lynch feels that it’s really important for Queer people to have spiritual spaces they can feel safe, welcome and celebrated in.

‘So many of us were raised in traditions that taught us that our queerness was a problem, when in fact it’s both our superpower and our most direct connection to our higher power. Queer people are magic, and events like this celebrate that’.

Fundraiser for Queer Family

Ms Lynch wants to support Queer Family, whose aim it is to reduce social isolation and improve mental wellbeing through the creation of safe spaces for LGBTQIA+ people and allies to connect, build, and strengthen the community in the Northern Rivers.

Queer Family is a peer-led, volunteer-run, not-for-profit organisation for LGBTQIA+ people and allies.

Ms Lynch, of Sacred & Profane fame, says she wants to hold space for those who can benefit from it.

‘I’m a queer woman, so I’ll be bringing that with me – also my love of my community. As a channel, energy healer and reader, I’ll be bringing the woo-woo with me in spades. As a natural space holder, I’ll be making this night fun, fabulous and, accessible as well as profound and meaningful. I’m a strong believer in both the sacred and the profane being part of the spiritual path, so expect the full spectrum of possibilities.

Queer magic, healing, joy and connection

Ms Lynch says that she is hosting the fundraiser as a chance for the community to come together for a delightful night of queer magic, healing, joy and connection.

‘I’d like to extend a special invitation to bi people, and to anyone who may be newly queer, or worried that they’re “not queer enough” to join in these kinds of events.’

‘You’re most welcome here, please come join us. It’s open to all and the door charge is a donation. All money raised will be given to Queer Family’.

Under the Queer Moon will be held on July 24 at Brunswick Heads.

Owing to current health orders, people will need to reserve their space by visiting the events page at: www.kirileighlynch.com/events.
