The Land aka Amber Fox


For over 30 years, the Lanark Highlands of eastern Ontario has been a centre of activity for gay and queer men attracted to the freedom of a rural lifestyle, and it has become the home of a radical faerie enclave aka Amber Fox.

Here, on 75 acres of rolling woods and farmland, gay and queer men gather to fellowship, to explore their sexuality and spirituality, to live in Nature, and to celebrate together. From April to October, we come together to enjoy work weekends, holidays, our annual ten-day High Summer Gathering, and Canadian Thanksgiving.

There are many structures on the land, many places to find shelter. Barns, a wood-fired sauna, an outdoor shower, the forest canopy, outhouses, the Departure Lounge, the Bunkhouse--and, during warm weather, numerous tents set up by those who come to camp.


But it is our Erection that draws the most attention.

Hey, how did the erection get its name.

This is only my theory, but I think of it as a pun. You erect a building, and so a building that's been erected is an erection. Of course there are those who believe it may refer to the specific action of a specific part of the male anatomy....
