Default meeting other pagans

There's a pagan group in my area I was thinking of attending some of there events. I must say that I'm a little nervous to meet some other pagans mostly becuse of my weight. I was wondering some of you that may have covens or other events that you attend was there any negativity as far as your weight goes? Being a stay at home mom 24/7 and living in a town that is at least 75% Mormon I really need to get out at meet some other people with like ideas.

Hi there,
I'm not pagan, though I have some acquaintances who are -- just wondering why pagans would have any issues with anyone's weight -- especially more than any other group. The pagans I have known have not all been super slim or fit. I think you should go for it!

I'm in the Salt Lake area. Haven't found much up here at all, so I'm still solo. Good luck! Love the witchy smileys!!

I don't think your weight would be an issue with the pagan community as a whole. Good luck to you when you go!! I'm in southern NC in the bible belt, so I'm still solitary as well. Keep us updated.

I belong to a UU pagan group, and we sometimes collab with a local Wiccan one.

In general -- the pagans come in all shapes, sizes, and styles like any other group would. So no, I have not experienced any sort of negativity.

Have you checked witchvox? I think the salt lake pagan pride is September 11 this year. I would love to go to it if I go up north.

I love Witchvox!

There's a pagan group here in my suburb, but I haven't visited them yet. I'm kinda nervous at meeting new people, usually, but hope to start meeting with them soon. It would be nice to celebrate Samhain with someone!
