SAINTS AND MARTYRS
OF RELIGIO ANTINOI

We recognize the lives, courage and work of all these blessed souls who knew Antinous in life, who died for the cause of Homosexuality, and who devoted their lives to the defense and promotion of our Love. For their work and for the sacrifice of their lives, we proclaim them Saints and Martyrs as an example to all who believe in the sanctity of Same-Sex Love. In the Name of Antinous, we honor and bless the memory of these great spirits, our forefathers and foremothers. We call upon them to watch over us, and to strengthen our cause, that the holiness of our sexuality will take its place in the world again. In memory of the martyrs who gave their lives, willingly and unwillingly for us, we dedicate ourselves to Antinous and the living spirit of Homoeros.
