So I have already introduced myself on the Discord server, but since I haven't even made a post here on the forum, I thought I should do an introductory post. So, first off, my name is Liz. I don't mind being addressed by my username, but i'd prefer Liz. :) I'm a 17 year old Puerto Rican trans girl currently living in...Florida...yes, I know, "how lovely must that be!" Anyways, I heard the call about a month ago, after beginning to read H.P. Lovecraft's works and being utterly fascinated and drawn to the idea of cosmicism and the principles of The Cult, which made me want to know if there were people that followed the beliefs portrayed in these works of literature. Soon after (about 4 to 5 days after reading Lovecraft's works), I found The Cult's site. I lurked around reading about the principles of The Cult, but I still couldn't make myself join, so I attempted to ignore the call. A couple of weeks after that, I saw there was an Instagram livestream from The Cult, so I hopped online and asked the questions I wanted answers to. Nyarlathoth gave me the answers I wanted and some encouragement, which ultimately convinced about joining. I simply needed to tend to the raging desire to learn more about the cult and get to indulge in such a positive, family-like community. So now I'm here. I hope I get to be friends with many of you, and that we may continue doing the Great Work together. May they rise.
