Clan Blue Feather
Clan Blue Feather is a group within the Society for Creative Anachronism whose primary goal is education. It encourages and facilitates research on homosexuality in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and teaches other members of the Society about homosexuality in the Current Middle Ages.
The Clan also exists as a social organization to facilitate interaction among the members of the Society, especially those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender, or their allies. Members of the Clan attend many SCAdian events around the country - for example, the Clan has held an annual Ball and had a dedicated encampment at Pennsic for many years, and there is a growing presence at Gulf War and Estrella War each year.
Unlike some SCA groups Clan Blue Feather has no official leader, or group of leaders. Group activities are organized by consensus or by an interested person. Particular events and gatherings may have certain people in charge, but this is only in the context of that event. There is no official "leader of Clan Blue Feather."
Members are united solely by a common interest, and not necessarily a common sexual orientation. They include:
- Those with an interest in homosexuality in the Middle Ages
- Those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT)
- Family, friends and supporters of the above
- Those who simply want to meet, camp with, or otherwise socialize with other members
