Radical Faeries first gathered in Arizona in 1979, 39 years ago in August. In 2016 Zuni Mountain Sanctuary celebrated its 20th anniversary. Though many people deserve credit for the first awakening of “gay earth-based spirituality,” lifetime partners Harry Hay and John Burnside are often noted as the movement’s inspiration.
Since then, Radical Faeries have expanded internationally & in diversity to include women and welcoming “straight” people who feel a connection to the Two-spirit. Today, Australia, Canada, Europe, and the United States are home to hundreds of diverse people who find a common thread in life and loving, identifying as Faeries. Radical Faeries gather at Sanctuaries and other locations to celebrate our unique embrace of the world.

On December 19th, 2016 we celebrated our 20th anniversary, recognizing with gratefulness, our founder – Littlefoot, aka David Balsam, who provided the land for ZMS in perpetuity, “to be primarily used as a religious practice facility, including encouraging the practice of sacred ritual, educating the public about Radical Faerie Spirituality, and for other sanctuary centered educational, community, charitable, humanitarian and cultural activities”.
Thank you Littlefoot.
