Alexis P. Morgan is a devotee radical luxury, bon vivant muse, curator, and lifestyle artist. Under her pen name, Lilith LePage, she is the proprietess and priestess-keeper of Lucifer's Well, a digital community network, online journal, and learning hub for liberation sorcery & leftist sorcerers.
Always making some sort of mischief, she aspires to inherit the title of "the most exciting [femme] in the world” from Eartha Kitt, by way of a vivid + kindly phantasm of the late Orson Welles.
When not doing whatever the fuck she wants, she’s doing whatever the fuck she wants and getting paid for it.
My body of work is dedicated to curating and creating immersive experiences that lead to an expanded worldview of personal pleasure, specifically my own.
While I’m not an activist/educator/organizer, my lived experiences, values, and need to liberate myself sit at the heart of my work and manifest in many ways, including some that speak to my path as an individual. The service I provide to community is a series of life experiments and explorations meant to provoke and challenge the assumptions we make about ourselves and what our lives can be + hold, both while navigating and deconstructing the social and political systems that ail us and do us harm, and dreaming of new ones in their stead.
To quote Gordon White in The Chaos Protocols:
"Last resort” is just another way of saying “last drinks.” Even if this is the apocalypse, that is no call to avoid making things interesting.
I'm an autistic, Afro-Indigenous, anarcho-communist matriarchist who experiences physical disability (multiple sclerosis; fibromyalgia) and who practices sorcery and who lives my life according to the rhythms of Judaism. Additionally, I was adopted twice: once as a child by my guardians, who were older, white, and in a queerplatonic relationship, and then again as an adult, by my mother, who is also an Afro-Indigenous (Yamassee/Mvskoke).
My biological, birthing parent identified her father as being Cherokee (Tsalagi/Aniyunwiya), presumably from the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Nation due to the location of her conception + birth. However, due to various legal issues concerning my adoption, and other logistical obstacles + ideological objections, I am unable to confirm this information at this time and thus re-establish my formal relationships to kin community. I was raised by my first set adoptive guardians as a bi-ethnic (Black and Indigenous) Black girl, my allegiance and final line political and cultural commitments are to Native sovereignty, land rematriation, and Black liberation. I am proud of being an Indigenous femme, but, I also recognize my relationship is personal and it is important - for the well-being and safety of other Indigenous people - that I am transparent and careful about the space I assume and hold with this part of my identity.)
Additionally, my family chose to forgo formal Jewish education due to concerns about racism, a lack of religiosity on my mother's part, and geographical logistics early on in my childhood. I was raised in a culturally Jewish home, around Jewish friends and extended family, with distinctly Jewish ethical values. I returned to Judaism as an adult, in 2018, after the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting, and have been on that journey since. I live my life as a Jewish woman, my life organizes itself around the pace of Jewish life, I study Torah, etc. I identify as somewhere between a Secular Humanist and Reconstructionist in my philosophy, and am interested in formal conversion if the ability to do so felt right and presented itself. However, I recognize that my ancestral spiritual practices and engagement with mysticism and magic may preclude me from formal conversion with even the most liberal of Reconstructionist or Reform rabbis, and as a result, I am content in my multicultural, multifaceted, lifeway Judaism, and trust that Gxd knows the work + prayer of my heart and hands.
