Local software developer and pagan Kurt Hohmann coordinates the Central New York Pagan Pride Festival each year to educate the community about the faith.

The phrase “Born Again Pagan” steered Kurt Hohmann on to a new path in his life’s journey about 20 years ago.

After seeing the words emblazoned on a bumper sticker in Salem, Mass. on a trip with his wife, Hohmann decided to do a little exploring.
