Honoring Our Queer Ancestors
Radical Ancestor Work for Queer Healing, Liberation, and Celebration
Pride is for honoring who we are.
It’s also for honoring the legacies that have allowed us to express the truth of who we are.
- a radical witch babe curious about ancestor work and ready to approach it from a liberatory perspective?
- a queer mystic who’s ancestor-work-curious, but weirded out by the blood-line, genealogy, the not-so-covert conservativism of it all & kinda turned off by the idea of worshiping your homophobic, transphobic ancestors?
- an ancestor work practitioner who wants to broaden their practice beyond simply those who fucked, conceived, begat, and produced heirs?
- An ally with magical inclinations who wants to grapple with ancestral legacies of homophobia & transphobia and become a better advocate for the queer folks you’re in community with?
- Looking for a way to get out of the feelings of frozen helplessness when you contemplate the current political situation and into action by tapping into a reservoir of magic, healing, and hope that will support individual and collective queer joy, healing and liberation?
“This drastically expanded my consciousness of all the things that had already been possible! I began the course feeling very self-conscious and carried worry that I would inadvertently do something to upset my ancestors. This course not only put my heart at ease, it also allowed me to work through these worries (which, turns out, was connected to ancestral trauma). Lex did a fantastic job holding space and supporting us while we encountered wounds — and helped us identify whether or not we were ready to undertake that particular journey at the time. This was such a wonderful course and really helped me trust myself and my ancestors.”
– Emily Corturillo

Hi! I’m Lex (they/them)! I am a queer, trans-masculine, neurodivergent, and chronically ill witch. To put it simply, I am a liminally embodied facilitator of liminal experiences! My lived experience has shaped my approach to folk magic and spiritual experience.
Through folk magic, spirit work and tarot I help spiritual rebels, academic witches, and mystical revolutionaries go beyond the conventional, learn to trust their own intuition, and make their own path through the magical realm. Through divination, meditation, and education it is my mission to help folks connect to their own personal wisdom and learn to be in conversation with the beyond so they can be their own guides to mystical exploration!
For the astrologically curious, I’ve got a 12th house Scorpio sun conjunct Mars and Pluto, with Mercury in the 1st house. My calling to work with the dead and my ancestors is written in the stars, to put it a bit dramatically.
I come to this work because my ancestors are deeply intertwined with my magical practice, especially my queer ancestors. It was my queer and otherwise marginalized ancestors who gave me the courage to turn away from approaches to spirituality that denied my truth and didn’t honor my lived experience.
And even as ancestral connection is essential to what I do, I have STRUGGLED with this work. Ancestor work is often conservative, genealogical, and exclusively focused one’s blood lineage as provable by historical documents. Many standard ancestor work classes have been harmful to me and ignored my vital radical, queer, marginalized, neurodivergent, and otherwise deviant ancestors. As a queer person, as a white person whose ancestors hid their origins and traditions so they could assimilate, as a radical who in the depths of my soul is repulsed by conservatism, learning to create an ancestor work practice that both honors my ancestors AND supports my thriving has been a challenge.
So, I am so excited to share with you what I have learned about using a radical approach connecting with, healing with, and learning from queer ancestors!

“I am feeling much more supported and connected to my ancestors. This made possible so much self-forgiveness and collective comfort for my generational lines and I have been able to cultivate love and affirmation to the person I am ready to step into becoming.”
