celebrating and creating our own LGBT history

day thirteen

Self Portrait Two

 

My queerness is part of my identity

The joy of my chosen families

 

My queerness is one of nature’s glories

The flowering of my legacies

 

My queerness is the African in me

The taboo of my oppressors

 

My queerness is being out of the closet

The guilt of my queer bashers

 

My queerness is the celebration of all beings

The fact of life

 

Queer is in every culture and race

The rejoicing of difference

 

Queer the sexuality of many people’s

Is nature’s own deliberation

 

My queerness is your fear

My courage

 

Your exclusion

My embrace

 

Your shame

My pride

 

Your fantasy

My reality

 

Your deception

My revelation

 

Now say my Name.
