Lancement de Holy Male Vol.2, le mercredi 18 décembre à 17h30 à Formats

18 décembre 2013 – 18 décembre 2013

Montréal (Québec)

The Holy Male Queerzine was a happy accident. It was born out of necessity and self-fertilization. It knew it had a place in the world and willed itself into existence though the delightful hands and hearts of queer men from around the world.
 
The Holy Male seeks to give voice to the spiritual lives of queer men and while doing so allowing them to express the breadth of their experience in it’s totality including the crude and sexy bits.  We aim to use mind body and spirit to create art, words and ritual, we share this experience through print, and various artistic modalities, but always with the intention of healing and mending the hearts and souls of boys.
 
We wish to make visible the nudging of our hearts to praise the vulnerable and the ugly and to live lives of honesty. We wish to be an antidote to the mass of garbage that has piled high on the male psyche, shrouding it’s mysteries and potential for good with guilt, shame and confusion. 
 
We wish to unveil the often-overlooked circumcision of the heart from the head of the boy-child in our society and dare to seek remedies for its quick rejuvenation. 
 
We embrace the contradictions of the universe and the sweet perfection that rests behind it. The Holy Male does not ask for approval nor respect, it does not seek acceptance or understanding or adoration or praise, it aims to exist as silence does, unwavering, and exquisite. Existing as the rocks, animals and trees do, brutal and cleansing as the wind and as the earthquakes, forest fires and floods.
 
We aim to show that we are not flat, we are not normal, we are not unique and we are neither simple nor complicated. We are everything and nothing and we are able to be beautiful and frightening all at once.
 
The Holy Man is a thread that grounds centuries of queer spirits together here and now, it is a receptacle of all things precious and sacred to the physical form of the male in this reality, while it acknowledges the impermanence of the body and the mind in the reality; it seeks to use it’s being to it’s best advantage by being a bringer of light, love, compassion and understanding.
 
The Holy Male is an aspiring magical tome. It is the book of shadows of a queer coven of men dedicated to the lightening of hearts and healing of wounds. It is a seedling with the promise of adulthood and inevitable wisdom. It longs to grow strong and sensible.
 
The Holy Male requires your voice, and invites you to be a part of a moving inward, a new reality. We welcome you to join us in the adventure of casting the energies of excitement and unity, we wish to be inclusive and ever expanding, please help us bring more light to the spiritual lives of men everywhere and create a tangible object in this dimension that reflects the multi faceted diamond that is our experience.
 
Blessings THM.
