LBGTQ* History Through Photos

The Radical Faeries

The above photos are from various gatherings of The Radical Faeries. The group was founded by Harry Hay, one of the leading LGB rights organizers of the mid-20th century and founding member of the Mattachine Society. The Radical Faeries was founded as a way for queer men to use spirituality and nature to replenish and nourish the body and mind. The group worked as an activist group, using naturalistic healing and ritual practices to unite members and create open forums for discussion.
