WE honor Margot Adler as a Saint of Antinous the Gay God.
She was proclaimed a saint during October 30 Foundation Day ceremonies in Hollywood by Flamen Antonius Subia.
She was a pioneering modern pagan and well-respected all-round journalist who enabled millions of listeners on NPR radio in North America to get a balanced and informed view of paganism.
She reported on news and current affairs from New York City ... most notably the 9/11 tragedy ... and her listeners respected her religious beliefs were did not make her "weird" or "demonic."
Margot Adler authored DRAWING DOWN THE MOON, a 1979 book about Neopaganism which was revised in 2006 to include our own modern Religion of Antinous.
The book is considered a watershed in American Neopagan circles, as it provided the first comprehensive look at modern nature-based religions in the US.
For many years it was the only introductory work about the American Neopagan communities. And it mentions Antinous ... and our new religion!
