Welcome in the new year with Bridge of Light, a new holiday honouring LGBT culture.

People celebrate Bridge of Light by lighting six candles, one for each color of the LGBT rainbow flag, on New Year’s Eve -- or from  26 December  to 1 January, one candle per day.

Each candle stands for a universal principle and its expression in the lives and history of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people:

  1. Red - The Root of Spirit (Community)
  2. Orange - The Fire of Spirit (Eros)
  3. Yellow - The Core of Spirit (Self-Esteem)
  4. Green - The Heart of Spirit (Love)
  5. Blue - The Voice of Spirit (Self-Expression and Justice)
  6. Purple - The Eye of Spirit (Wisdom)
  7. All Candles - The Crown of Spirit (Spirituality)

The candles are intended to provide a starting point for individual and group meditations on the meaning of spirituality in our lives.

Kittredge Cherry worked with Joe Perez, the founder of Bridge of Light, to revise the principles to include the chakras. You can read their discussions at the Gay Spirituality Blog. They’re open to future revisions, so let them know what you think!
