How to set up a Wiccan altar
There are as many different ways to set up an altar as there are Wiccans, but I can give some useful hints and tips for a working altar.

BIPOC Science Fiction & Fantasy
A complete list of Science Fiction and Fantasy by BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) would be very long indeed, so I am going to highlight a few of my favourites and add links to more lists.
BIPOC Pagan Reading List
A reading list of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour) authors covering Paganism, the occult, astrology, Tarot, and Indigenous spirituality.

I have mainly been posting about the protests on my Instagram and Twitter accounts.
