Abstract: We have witnessed in recent years a renewed interest in the world of witchcraft in Western societies. TV series, films, press articles are all there to take on the image of the witch in a new historical context. However, very few know the reality of identities from pagan and neopagan communities, such as those linked to Wicca, a magico-religious tradition which presents a singular cosmology that provides meaning to the relationships between the gender identity of practitioners and their ritual and magical practices. From an anthropological perspective, this dissertation proposes to explore the construction and expression of a Wiccan and gendered identity in Quebec, through public rites and Wiccan daily life. It is a question of taking a critical look at the way of apprehending the multiplicity of gendered identities today within Wicca. This ethnography aims to explore the theological changes that have arisen after the assertion of communities presenting a different vision of heteronormative gender identity.
