Join us on Zoom to celebrate BC LGBTQ+ Students as we recognize their achievements and contributions to Bellevue College and the LGBTQ+ Community!
Hear from faculty, students and our Keynote Speaker GODDEXX/LA ESPIRITISTA.
I repressed so many of my desires because the words “I want” were associated with the devil. Pleasure was deemed opposite to spirit. To be queer, trans, polyam + the many other identities I hold meant to defy the rules given by “God” and transcend into a world of expression, empowerment, and embodiment. For some reason, this was deemed sinful and I was taught through a fear-based model of Catholicism that only through a life of sacrifice and suffering, one could truly be aligned with spirit.
But these ideologies are wrong.
Spirituality, Sexuality, and Sensuality can exist altogether and in fact our connection to our queerness, transness, and fluidity, brings us closer to spirit. Binaries don’t actually exist in a static, containers do. Concepts are constantly shifting, merging, separating, and flowing into new forms.
My first experience with embarking on my medical transition to affirm my gender is the moment I began to reclaim my spirit. I remembered that I could be spiritually wise and sexually liberated. That I could feel desire and harness my expression as magic. That I could encompass the expansiveness of all my identities and be divinity embodied – A Goddexx.
As a Goddexx, reclaiming my spirit and wisdom has been a slow and sacred journey- releasing my traumas, renewing my pleasure, retreating into my shadows, and rebirthing my being. Each new cycle brings an abundance of epiphanies worth celebrating. Each transformation is a reminder of my inherent worthiness for my own love, compassion, and forgiveness. I am informed by my past, living in the present, and simultaneously conjuring the present and future I have always desired. I am worthy of infinite love. I am worthy of fluidity. I am worthy of my desires.
And so are you.
Warmth and Divinity,
