celebrating and creating our own LGBTQ+ history in honour of Sheila McWattie

day three

True Love


True love has no rules,

It doesn’t care about boundaries,

It won’t be tamed by expectations…

Of yourself or of others.


True love ignores labels,

It can’t conform to stereotypes,

It refuses to accept judgement…

Of yourself or by others.


True love forgets prejudice,

It isn’t interested in ‘normal’,

It won’t listen to negative voices…

From yourself or from others.


True love cares about hearts,

It is ruled by individual truths,

It wants only respect and pride…

In yourself and of others.
