HAPPY WORLD PRIDE!

World Pride has begun.   

Why “pride”?  Why should I be proud of my sexuality:  are str8 guys “proud” of being str8?

They don’t have to be.

BUT:

worldprideWhen you’ve been insulted, assaulted, demeaned, discounted and made invisible for most of your life, the only possible  response is to say:

You will not take my life from me –
You will not make me nothing –
 
For every insult you hurl at me
I will respond with
even more pride,
For every action you take
to crush my spirit,
I will rise up even higher,
Together with my
sisters and brothers, I will shout out:
I’m here – I’m queer –
And I’m not going away….!

(PS:  #RobFord – where are you?  Your dinner’s getting cold….)
