happy beltane 2020 mix

On May 1st, 2020, for the first time in 5 years, I was not celebrating the eternal return of spring on faerie land. Instead, I had the honor of DJing a remote global celebration of Radical Faeries across the world. Here’s the set, which I will remember as one of the most meaningful times I took to the equipment during a period of profound uncertainty and loss.

“his heart stayed open to any who would pretend with him for a moment that love could thrive in the paranoid weirdness of the men.” (_the faggots and their friends between revolutions_ p. 75)
