Fifteen men who attended Gay Men of Color 2017

On the weekend of April 7th-April 9th, Easton Mountain hosted the 2nd Annual Gay Men of Color Retreat. Thanks to the generosity of the Gamma Mu Foundation, Easton was able to host twice the number of men this year than last. Easton is happy to report that over half the 24 attendees were first timers to the Mountain. The men attended workshops on subject matter that included: community building, racism and inter-racial dating, masculinities in gay men of color, healing touch, optimism, affirmations, loss and mourning, etc. Attendees also partook in a dance party, viewed the Academy Award winning film Moonlight, played in the drag closet, walked the grounds, and sweated in the sauna. The men shared personal tragedies and triumphs in the heart circles. Many had personal catharsis' and others quietly allowed the land to begin their healing. The Easton Mountain community is looking forward to next year's GMOC Retreat.

Gay Spirituality and Easton Mountain

For many, the idea of “gay spirituality” seems like taking the “gay” thing one step too far. We have too much of gay this and gay that. After all, there doesn’t seem to be a “heterosexual spirituality.” The need for this designation arises out of the impact of various kinds of oppression. Thus, we do have bodies of work on “women’s spirituality” and “black spirituality.” They have allowed us, even with ...

Farewell

One of my fondest Easton memories is standing naked near the upper pond on a bright sunny summer day, getting spritzed down with lube by Moss Tidd, then sliding gleefully head first down a long slippy slide as naked men on each of side of me cheered. The playful, innocent, unadulterated joy that
