The Ordo Aeternus Vovin
The Ordo Aeternus Vovin is the primary organizing group behind Querent. While Querent itself is open to all queer-idetified spiritual practitioners and their allies and supporters, the Ordo Aeternus Vovin is primarily a spirtual and religious order for gay and bisexual men seeking to gain greater fulfillment from their lives through a practice of self-reflection and self-mastery.
The Ordo Aeternus Vovin (Eternal Order of Dragons) was established to provide gay, bisexual, queer, and questioning men a spiritual practice that embraces their true nature and recognizes their unique place in the universe. It celebrates the special sacred roles that queer men have fulfilled since the earliest days of human history
Many gay men (as well as some bisexual and gender-variant males and transsexuals) living at the end of the twentieth century have begun to reclaim the ancient association of homoeroticism, gender variance, and sacred experience or role. This task of reclamation is not an easy one. Indeed, due to the homophobic and anti-gender variant communities in which many of us live, the journey toward self-realization can be an extremely adruous one.

The Ordo Aeternus Vovin is a church and religious not-for-profit that teaches gay and bisexual men tools and techniques for self-discovery and self-mastery. These spiritual methods seek to help queer men live more satisfying and fulfilling lives. We also seek to empower gay and bisexual men to take up the mantle of spiritual guides and ministers in order to bring light and hope to an increasingly dark world.
The order also provides a social setting where gay and bi men can develop friendships and provide support and encouragement to one another.
Our spiritual methods are grounded in a unique system of Queer spirituality based on the philosophy of Thelema, ceremonial magick and meditation. Our mythos is grounded in Sumerian mythology and revolves around the twin goddesses Inanna and Ereshkigal, the god Gugulanna (also known as the Bull of Heaven) and the androgynous god Kugarra.
