Eldership is not about age but about wisdom.
The Gay/Queer Elder has wisdom to teach. We all know our "gay truth" to share to heal, to liberate and to guide us further on the journey. The Gay/Queer Elder knows he belongs. The September potluck theme is about eldership and taking our place in community.
How much do you feel you belong to the Gay/Queer Tribe?
Elders know they "belong." Many of us have felt we don't belong even among our own community. Healing that story of "not belonging" is part of the wisdom the gay elder brings as a visionary, healer and teacher.
