Recovering from the pandemic, even as it continues.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

As the pandemic continues, Black Sun Lodge, O.T.O. is following the COVID-19 safety policies laid forth by US Grand Lodge (USGL). As a number of our members or members of their households have chronic health concerns, Black Sun has chosen to follow the more cautious options. Additionally, USGL has stated that we must keep up with information from state or local governments, in case they require more stringent safety measures.

Following USGL COVID-19 policies, we resumed limited indoor and outdoor activities in late May. As of 20 August 2021, the Officers of Black Sun Lodge are currently monitoring active spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant among vaccinated individuals within our community. To minimize further spread, we are modifying the following events for the rest of this month effective immediately:

• In-Person Social @ Edgewater Park (8/23): now Virtual Happy Hour (see calendar for link)
• Out, Proud, and Pagan (8/28): reverted back to online only
Cleveland Pagan Pride (8/28-29): Black Sun Lodge will not have a booth this year.

If you have COVID-19, or if you have been recently exposed to someone who has COVID-19, we expect that you will follow current CDC recommendations for isolation or quarantine to avoid infecting others.

We are grateful to everyone who has made donations and paid dues during the pandemic shutdowns to help us keep our Lodge space, pay video conferencing fees, etc. To help contribute through your regular shopping, we offer many items through the Black Sun book store. For items not carried in our store, we have an affiliate relationship with Amazon.com (Amazon Advertising cookies required), as well as registration in the Amazon Smile program. Through all three methods, a portion of every purchase helps support Black Sun Lodge.

We hope to resume in-person events very soon, indoors at the Lodge and at the LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland, and outdoors at the Richard Wagner statue in Upper Edgewater Park.

We welcome you to subscribe to the Black Sun Google Calendar. Because event details may change on short notice, be sure to turn on notification emails.

Our regular announcement email list is on Googlegroups. You can also find us on Facebook, Meetup, Twitter, and Instagram.

Please note: the Black Sun Lodge visitors rules and anti-discrimination policy apply to both in-person and online events.

If you have any questions about Black Sun Lodge, please feel free to contact us.

Love is the law, love under will.
