Kenneth Anger: The Link Between Homosexuality and the Occult

by Paul A. Drockton

I have long worked to expose the link between Homosexuality and the Occult. Born Kenneth Wilbur Anglemeyer, Ken Anger makes my job much easier. The Knights Templar, the forerunners of the Masons, Rosicrucians and Illuminati, were an all male religious order that actually permitted homosexual behavior among their members. They were also exposed for worshipping the "Goat's head" (Baphomet) and lovers of all things Plato (Lucifer). Through their alliance with Illuminati Jews, they have come to dominate the world's finances and its culture.

"(Ken Anger's) His short films, which he has been producing since 1937, have variously merged surrealism with homoerotica and the occult. Whilst he has produced almost forty short films in his lifetime, only six of these have received distribution, and have come to be referred to as the "Magick Lantern Cycle".[1]  He has been described as "one of America's first openly gay filmmakers, and certainly the first whose work addressed homosexuality  in an undisguised, self-implicating manner",[2]  and some of his homoerotic works, such as Fireworks (1947) and Scorpio Rising (1964), were produced prior to the legalisation of homosexuality in the United States."

Not surprisingly, Anger's love affair with the Occult manifested itself in High School:

"It was whilst at high school that he began to get interested in the occult, which he had first indirectly encountered through reading Frank L. Baum's Oz books as a child, with their accompanying Rosicrucian philosophies. Kenneth was very interested in the works of the French ceremonial magician Eliphas Levi, as well as Sir James Frazer's The Golden Bough,   although his favourite was the writings of the British occultist Aleister Crowley Crowley had founded a religion known as Thelema  based upon a religious experience that he had in 1904, in which a being known as Aiwass  had contacted him and recited to him The Book of the Law. Kenneth subsequently became a great fan of Crowley's work and converted to Thelema." (Ibid)
The Wizard of Oz is used in trauma-based mind control as a script when creating programmed multiple personalities. Crowley is best known for his "Sex Majick", the belief that revelation from Lucifer can best be experienced during the sex act. As a result of his first homoerotic film, "Fireworks", Anger found a new ally in one very well known sexual deviant:
One of the first people to buy a copy of "Fireworks" was the sexologist Dr. Alfred Kinsey of the Institute for Sex Research. He and Anger struck up a friendship that would last until the doctor's death, during which time Anger aided Kinsey in his research. According to Anger's unofficial biographer Bill Landis, Kinsey became a "father figure" whom Anger "could both interact with and emulate." ... That same year, Anger directed The Love That Whirls, a film based upon Aztec human sacrifice, but because of the nudity that it contained was destroyed by technicians at the film lab who deemed it to be obscene. (ibid.)
In the 1950s, through fear of the McCarthy hearings on exposing Hollywood Communists, Anger fled to France where he made a movie that used waterfalls to symbolize "golden showers" (urination on another). His next best known work was "Scorpio Rising":
"In Scorpio Rising, the montaged appropriation of signs and symbols (cross, swastika), icons (Jesus, Brando, Dean), characters (bike boys Scorpio, Taurus and Leo) and soundtracks is dominated by a viewpoint that unveils alternative meanings. These subversive statements are buried in coded metaphors and double entendres, where obvious meaning and signification are obscured. Questions and themes of repressed desire are literally fleshed out and exploded on screen in fast-cut sequences in which subliminal shots of a full-frontal pelvic thrusting or a boys' orgy are intercut with scenes from a black-and-white C-grade religious epic in which Jesus gives sight to the blind man."

It gets even more bizarre:
"In 1966, Anger moved into the ground floor of a large 19th century house in San Francisco known as the Russian Embassy. Around this time he began planning for a new film, which he planned to title Lucifer Rising and which would echo his Thelemic beliefs about the ensuing Aeon of Horus. He had the name of Lucifer tattooed upon his chest and began searching for a young man who could symbolically become Lucifer, "the Crowned and Conquering Child" of the new Aeon, for Lucifer Rising. He met various young men who could fit the position, inviting each to live with him at the Russian Embassy, although eventually he settled upon a man named Bobby Beausoleil.  
    Beausoleil also formed a band, the Magic Powerhouse of Oz, in order to record the music for the film.  Then, in 1967, Anger claimed that the footage which he had been filming for Lucifer Rising had been stolen, and he placed the blame upon Beausoleil, who would deny the claims, later telling Anger's unofficial biographer Bill Landis that "what had happened was that Kenneth had spent all the money that was invested in Lucifer Rising" and that he therefore invented the story to satisfy the film's creditors.[  Beausoleil and Anger fell out, with the former getting involved with Charles Manson and his cult, the Family, eventually carrying out Manson's bidding by torturing and murdering Gary Hinman."

Anger decided to use the footage from "Lucifer Rising" for another movie:
"The following year he travelled to London where he first met J. Paul Getty, who would subsequently become Anger's patron, and where he also met and befriended Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, members of The Rolling Stones, as well as Richards' drug addicted girlfriend Anita Pallenberg.   Anger then decided to use much of the footage created for Lucifer Rising in a new film of his, Invocation of My Demon Brother, which starred Beausoleil, (Anton) LaVey, Jagger and Richards, as well as Anger himself, and the music for which had been composed by Jagger. It was released in 1969, and explored many of the Thelemic themes that Anger had originally intended for Lucifer Rising." (Ibid)
Anger was also professionally involved with Jimmy Page, who wrote the music for "Lucifer Rising", lived in Crowley's mansion and had a vast collection of Crowley's artwork. Page and Anger had a falling out and his musical score was dumped. Beausoleil reportedely wrote the new music from his prison cell.
His lifelong relationship with Church of Satan founder, Anton Lavey, is also worth mentioning:
Anger is a Thelemite and after many years joined the Thelemic organisation, the Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.). He viewed many of the men he associated with as living embodiments of Lucifer, a symbol of the Aeon of Horus in Thelemic philosophy, and had the name of Lucifer tattooed onto his chest. Despite being a Thelemite, Anger has shown an interest in various other religious movements, particularly those that are in some way occult. For instance, he was a lifelong friend of Anton Szandor LaVey, both before and after the founding of the Church of Satan in the 1960s, and lived with LaVey and his family during the 1980s. LaVey also made an appearance in one of Anger's films, Invocation to My Demon Brother (1969) whilst Anger wrote forewords to two of LaVey's books, The Devil's Notebook (1992) and Satan Speaks! (1998). He also describes himself as a "pagan" and refuses to consider himself to be a Satanist. (ibid)
While it doesn't seem like his films were for general public consumption, Anger' work with rock musicians, LaVey and J Paul Getty firmly establish him as the film-maker for the Illuminati Elite and reflective of their "family values".  Homosexuality is both Crowley's "Sex Majick" and Satanic defiance to traditional marriage and procreation. It is the worship of pleasure over responsibility. Anger himself proves the point.
