and moving through the liberation movements of the late twentieth, The Fire in Moonlight speculates far into the twenty-first. It offers a timely compendium of culture wisdom, provocative wit and challenging sensuality.
The Fire in Moonlight gives witness to a groundbreaking movement that painstakingly emerged from the Gay Liberation era. Rooted in the history of radical visionaries, this little known,
essential community informs the modern world with new meanings, offering fresh definitions of faith, identity, purpose and gender. The Fire in Moonlight is a series of personal reflections on who the Radical Faeries are, where they’ve been and where they are going: Radical Faeries in their own words. It is about how a movement has changed lives—and how Radical Faeries contribute to healing a fractured Earth.
