St. Louis Pagan Pride Day is an educational event that happens the 2nd Saturday in October starting 2012. This is an event for Pagans and the curious public to see inside what being Pagan is really about. We all have different paths but together we seek acceptance and support through our community. This event is to raise awareness as well as offer support to those still in 'the broom closet'. The admission to this event FREE but we do ask that you bring an appropriate donation that will be announced during advertisement of the event.

As acting President of St. Louis Pagan Pride, a situation has been presented to me. A member of our community is badly in need of money, and we have offered to hold a fundraiser to help them. We welcome the efforts of the entire community, if anyone would like to help put this fundraiser together, please message me privately. Additionally, if we made contact during this year's Pagan Pride about you wanting to be a part of the organizing committee, please contact me asap. I handed out business cards, and so I have little to no contact info in hand :)

Good evening everyone! Just wanted to give you all a few updates on all that is going on with St.Louis Pagan Pride. 1) This year marked a first for St. Louis. In the 35 year history of the St. Louis Gay Pride Festival, St. Louis Pagan Pride was the first official Pagan organization to march in the parade as well host a booth at the festival! So we are steadily working on making positive connections between the Pagan community and the more mainstream communities! :-) 2) We have a fundraising event coming up on Saturday, August 23rd at 9:30 pm (doors open at 8:30 pm. $5 cover for 21+, $10 for 18-20, and $20 for a reserved table of 4). This is the second annual An Enchanted Evening of the Arts, but with a few changes this year. The event will be at Bad Dog Bar and Grill. Tons of talent this year. A raffle! And our annual silent auction, which I will give more details about that soon. So stay tuned!
