TO BE GAY

TO BE GAY

To be gay is not a wound

it is not a sore to be covered

or a shrine of the afflicted

to be looked upon with pity

it is not a strange anomaly

to be explained for validation

it is the difference that gives

a double heart of empathy

and a sense of belonging

not by blood but by heart

To be gay is to be human

without pomp and spectacle

it does not deny of pride

it is a march towards truth

with purpose and dignity

    To be gay is to be you. It’s not an aberration. Or a fashion accessory. Or an appendage. It’s you and you’re it.
    Great poem on gay pride, jodek.
