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

day fourteen

Revolting ‘79

We were thought revolting, but we revolted
We wore badges and smiley symbols
We partied in cellars
We were anarchic
We were deluded but high on promises
We thought we pioneered
But we were children …
The beginning of the revolution

Disco, bright lights, Rocky Horror
Façades of inequality and sorrow
We protested, we revolted
Built the groundwork of tomorrow
Tomorrow has now become today
Youth is now a different way
May be we won’t agree with them
Perhaps we’ll become partisan
Yet revolution will take its course
And we are all revolutionaries of course
