WELCOME to North Texas Radical Faeries!
WHO ARE WE?
The gay movement has left these central questions un-addressed. In fact, some gay people would have us believe we're just the same as the straights, except for what we do between the sheets. But others of us hold to the gut feeling that we _are_ different-that we gay people are _a people_. As a people we have ways that are peculiar to us and a language that characterizes us. We have our own past and, even more importantly, our own future.
We have searched through our childhoods for roots and clues to our special identity, and we have come up with the word FAERIE. As gay children we delighted in stories of faeries-those playful, magical, pansy-faced beings who assumed human shape. We have even been known as faeries throughout our lives to those around us.
So we are faeries. We spell it variously-as faerie, fairy, faery. No matter how we spell it, our aim is to explore and celebrate our nature. We want to build _real_ community on the fullest possible understanding of who we are. Therefore we feel it necessary to address the question of our identity.
We are mix of varying genders and sexual orientations.
