Artists and activists Lucas Crawford and Coral Short have come together to save their friends and themselves. These incantations were created in times of urgency, friendship, depression, and struggle. The pair began using their facebook statues to "blast out incantations into their queer universes" with the "hope to sprinkle a little joy into our humdrum chilly winter months."

And it has worked! People from around the world have commented, "liked" and "shared" their messages.
Launching off facebook, now in zine format, thanks to the skills of designer Karen Campos Castillo, Gay Incantations is being distributed by Visual AIDS, starting at our POSITIVE ASSERTIONS event.

Come to POSITIVE ASSERTIONS tonight to get your copy!

Here are a few incantations. See them all online, GAYINCANTATIONS
