Announcement #AzazelTapioca #DragForSatan

Post #: 3
Hi, my name is Tapioca, I am 26, I am an economist and work with politics in the city of Rio de Janeiro. I am a left, close to anarcho-communist approaches, in the libertarian-socialist and also in the pirate party. I have always been spiritualized and for long interested in theism and gnosis. I grew an alternative adolescent, fond to rock music and the dark side. Rebellion, resistance and reunion became important strategies for myself, and I used my body to translate it through the art of drag queer. For almost a year now, I created a character called Azazel Pushed It (free translation from portuguese), after selecting this as the demon that would better translate myself. I chose a demon as character exactly to act against a growing conservative movement in Brasil led not by catholics, but by evangelical protestants. My main reason was to Push my rights for being whoever the fuck I wanted to be, a satanist including. I am not sure I wanted to become a satanist in the first place, but I am sure about my approval of the political and religious message you are passing on in here. I must confess I'm a bit reflexive and excited about the mysterious coincidence of finding a satanist church invented years ago with my name on it and surely amazed by the amazing selection of the five rising gods. As a drag queen and gender militant, I'm obviously in love with Ishtar, which I knew little before this blog; Rio has a very strong feminist movement, great idolation for goddess mothers, and I have been very close to this discussion, including the rad-fem critique upon transpeople, so probably Lilith has been my most loved goddess for some time; together probably with Pan, since I have loved mythology and especially satyrs (which have been my main choice for a first tattoo for quite some time now) since childhood, this been other of the main reasons for me choosing the name Azazel, lord of the shekmeths (Baco is also very idolated in Rio); as a nerd child, Prometheus was probably the one I would have liked the most, a young believer of technology and the modern promise of the 90s (television, telephones, internet, videogames, robotics, asians) ~ now I see it as a consumerist generating process fundamental to capitalism, which I oppose - I believe Prometheus must be restored by the effectivation of the potential of autonomous social organization through internet, making it more than just networks of outrage and hope ~ I oppose capitalism as a generator of alienation, in opposition therefore to the original modern promise of Aufklarüng; and now of course not only Lucifer, an image I adore and identify for so long now, but an adjectified Lucifer, so as to enhance its essence, of illumination, which I take for not more than just emancipying yourself (Sophia has been my goal forever). Azazel is they, and they are Azazel; I'm honored for this name to have manifested to me before I even knew about this church, and after calmly reading the main topics of this blog, I decided to make contact and join you - what does not mean I stand for all your objectives and beliefs, this being why I decided to connect and find out.
This being said, I present myself as Azazel Tapioca and wish to become a member and spokesperson for the Church of Azazel in Rio de Janeiro. Next Friday, May 1st, I will be shooting my episode for the series Drag-se, a webdoc about 13 upcoming drag queens, kings and queers, one of them being me, and I would like to propose a partnership: some assistance with more information about this church, its practices and its objectives, in exchange for grand public exposition of the Church of Azazel ~ Drag-se Facebook page has 12k followers now (details of the partnership shall be dealt with the producer). If some responsible for the Church of Azazel may please make contact, I may arrange it with SUMA Filmes, the independent producer of the series. Besides one documentary episode, I have another one to make a performance, which I believe could be a proper ritual, and two others for a makeup tutorial. I am also trying a partnership with the first brazilian editor entirely dedicated to horror and fantasy, named DarkSide Books; an independent (though not indie) satan worshiper rock music producer called Abraxas; and Blowtex. Depending on the demonstrated relevancy of this organisation, I also plan to study it after my master degree in public administration is complete. Please make contact as soon as possible.
