The Texas Two Spirit Society is raising money for our First Annual Gathering  that will take place May 20-23, 2016 at Pine Creek Country Inn in Nacogdoches, TX (Caddo Territory).  Texas will also be hosting the 29th Annual Two Spirit Gathering in combination as traditionally held by the International Gathering's hosts each year.

Texas Two Spirit Society is now a 501(c)(3) Tax Exempt Nonprofit and Texas Nonprofit!  Contact us for receipts regarding donations made in 2015 for your next tax return.

We are here to educate and bring back our traditional roles, as traditionally for thousands of years Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Trans, etc. have been accepted and allowed to marry.  Two spirited persons are thought to have more than one spirit that includes at least one that is of the normal masculine and one of the normal feminine.

Because of this, two spirited persons are known for:
Having High Status
Being Multitalented
Gifted Mediators
Being Great Leaders and Shamans
Having the Full Circle of Life in One Being

Our total goal for fundraising for the gathering is $18,633 and we already have $4,500 pledged.

Deposit of $300 dollars is already made using one of the donations on here!

All donations of $100 or more will waive your registration fee if you plan on attending as well.  *If this is where you are paying for your registration fee, please note so in the comments and on your registration form, as that part is required to attend.*
