About Sir Lyra Hill

Hello! My name is Sir Lyra Hill. I am an artist, educator, and Master of Ceremonies at Multi Cult.

I write and draw Pleasure Hex, the ongoing comic where I process personal experiences, world events, and big ideas.

The intention of Multi Cult is:

TO MAKE HOME IN THE UNKNOWN

WHAT ON EARTH?

I founded Multi Cult in the summer of 2017, soon after moving to Los Angeles. It started as a live, in-person ritual variety show, and has grown into a loose community of artists and volunteers, a platform for challenging ideas, and (since the beginning COVID-19) weekly online Multi Cult Virtual Rituals (MCVR) free and open to all curious cats.

Every Multi Cult, in-person and online, invites audience members to invest in the unknown. We co-create ceremony, casting circles and grounding together. We bring objects for the altar and show-and-tell. Anyone can apply to perform in the spotlight. As Master of Ceremonies, I guide attendees through playful exercises and thoughtful meditations. I try to shake us loose from our ingrained habits so we might evolve according to our values, and strengthen our resilience for navigating necessary and often painful changes.

WHO ARE THEY?

I (they/them) am a person who believes we have the power to shape our world. I've seen it happen in magical community, in queer community, in underground art scenes, and in activist circles. I believe in a future without prisons, police, or white supremacist capitalist patriarchy. When I create, teach, and organize, it is with this future in mind.

I have a decade of experience hosting and organizing multimedia events including Brain Frame, the performative comix reading series, from 2011-2014. I began teaching magical skills in 2004, art making in 2009, facilitation and organization in 2013, and self defense in 2017. I have screened films, published comix, and performed in eight different countries. I prioritize building and sustaining meaningful relationships in my everyday life.

WHY PATREON?

Like many creators on Patreon, I signed up hoping to transmogrify the vocal support for my artworks into financial stability. Like many, I have struggled to square my core values with the marketing aspect of pay-to-play patronage. Turns out I am incapable of sustaining a traditional business model (wow where did all this shame come from?) so I'm evolving according to my values: MAKE EVERYTHING FREE.

If you enjoy my work, approve of this message, and have cash to spend, please sign up to help me sustain this beautiful reality! I am deeply grateful for any and all support. Thank you.

WHERE DO I SIGN UP?

HOW ABOUT THAT PATRON-ONLY CONTENT?

Here's how I draw the line.

  • My finished, polished work and the educational resources I create are free to the public, or pay-what-you-can.
  • Cards I hold close to my chest... I won't show unless I know you really like me. Only patrons have access to a living archive of secret posts: artworks, especially performances, that I am sensitive about or still developing; drawings and writings from my private process; old embarrassing stuff; and special expressions of gratitude.
  • My ongoing comic, Pleasure Hex, is available to read online but only patrons will receive a copy of the newest issue in the mail.
Thank you so much for taking the time to enter and entertain my worldview. Everyone who reads this is a person I love. Thank you for believing in me. It's mutual.

Goals
$316.77 of $1,300 per month
This is the bare minimum I need to make in order to cover my monthly expenses (rent, utilities, insurance). When I reach this goal, I will be able to stop searching for, applying to, and laboring at part time jobs and contract positions. With more time and energy to devote to MULTI CULT and my artwork, I will be able to create more and better content for the benefit of all!
