Is it ok to talk about being gay?
1st of all I’d like to clarify
that not ALL of us are
of the school of thought
that some people
are better
than other people.
I don’t know who these people are
who think
they have the authority
To say what’s right
And what’s wrong
Who’s straight
And who’s crooked.
Is it OK?

Is it OK to talk about being gay?
Nobody speaks about the courage
it takes to be something different,
when most people are the same.
Nobody speaks about the guts
It takes to say
This is Who I Am!
Instead they hide away in the
secrecies of their own sexualities
Wishing it away
Denying it
Is it OK?

Is it?

What do I make of all these gay killings?
What kind of a ‘better’ people
are Murderers and Rapists
Torturers and Bullies?
It is Completely,
Totally
And utterly
UNACCEPTABLE to KILL people
for their sexual orientation
Is it?

Is it OK?

Is it OK to talk about being gay?
We Cannot live in a society
where people are victimised
because of who they choose
To love
If people were not ‘created’ that way
Then Jah/God/Allah wouldn’t have created them gay
You go on as if you ‘chose’ being heterosexual
Asking,
‘so when did you become gay?’
Huh?
Is it?

Is it OK?
Is it OK to talk about being
Gay?

to talk about being gay.

Coz If it’s OK
I’d like to say
I’M OK WITH THE GAYS!
