JULUNGGUL

Australian Desire Goddess

Also known as KALSERU

The Rainbow Snake Goddess of Teen Sexuality

Mythology is full of rainbow serpents — particularly Oz mythology. But JULUNGGUL is a snake with a difference. She oversees the initiation of boys into manhood. So if you’re having awkward teen problems such as acne, bad hair, or social angst, slip her a note during break.

How she got the job is unclear. When prompted to think of male puberty and testosterone-powered teenage awakenings, a pretty rainbow is not the first image which springs to mind. How many butch lads do you know who look good in violet?

We reckon the JULUNGGUL the Rainbow Goddess should be embraced as a gay icon. She’s colorful, she’s an expert in gender issues — she’s out and she’s proud.
