A lot of people have asked me lately if being gay is frowned upon in Wicca. The answer to this is No.

Wicca and a lot of pagan religions are some of the only religions that do not frown upon homosexuality. In fact The great God Zeus himself had a male lover called Ganymede as did a lot of pagan deities.

In ancient Egyptian, Greece, Roman, Celtic and Viking civilisations and many others that were Pagan there wasn't even a name for homosexuality it was just a way of life and wasn't frowned upon. There are many documents, hieroglyphs and even cave drawing depicting homosexual relationships in ancient civilisations. In Viking, Celtic and Native American civilisations same sexes would often get married. A man would go with a man if he chose to, a woman would go with a woman if she chose to and a man and woman together was accepted equally. Homosexuality was really only brought into disrepute as the rise of Christianity grew, Paganism and all that was involved in being Pagan was frowned upon and punished by Christianity and later Islam.

In the animal kingdom almost every observed species are known to show homosexual behaviour, many same sex animals mating for life or having sexual relations, even some plant life. It is natural in all forms of life and is in no way wrong or unnatural.

Wicca is accepting of all people, no matter what your sexuality, religion or race. We are all part of the same great wheel of life. We are all children of the universe. We have no right to judge or look down on others and no one has the right to judge or look down on you.
