The movement that challenges the dominant models of sexuality and relationships demanding the rights of LGBTQI* people has become a truly hot topic. The bearded face of Conchita Wurst, the transgender woman who won the Eurovision singing contest, still haunts the mind of people around Europe. The request for the acceptance of same-sex marriages is heard again and again in Greece, as well as in other countries.
In my mind, the energy of Isis seems to resonate with the Revolution. The ideals of bread, freedom and social justice may seem as far removed from present-day Egypt as they were in pharaonic times. Yet for people who once lived in hunter-gatherer, egalitarian societies and honored the Earth Mother and her spirits, these concepts were part of their everyday life. If there is hope to get out of this political dead-end, it lies in keeping these ideals alive.
