International Day Against Homophobia

Today is the International Day Against Homophobia – I was already working on this poem in light of all the gay marriage stuff going around. I wish I could have included more people in the poem but it was becoming unwieldy.

For Those

For those who would deny the Homosexual marriage
Let all endevours of the Gay, Leza,
Trani and Bi be struck from them
Let them not read the words of Oscar Wild
Nor the works of any literature influenced by him

Let them not use the computer of Alan Turin
Nor any technology built upon his mathematic principles

Let them not laugh at the humour of Stephen Fry
Or enjoy such intellectual witisisms as he provides

Let them not dance to the music of Elton John
Nor listen to any music inspired by such music waves

Let them not use bridges, houses or cars
Made by the queer engineer
Nor receive medial treatments
Devised by those of a questioning nature

Let them take all that is purely straight and
Hide in an enclave away from the
Human beings of this world

But most of all let them see the truth
Marriage is not about sexuality or sex
It is about love
From person to person
And back again

Let them see this and become people once more
Let marriage be about marriage
And NOT arbutary sexuality

There is also the song I wrote in response to an incase in homophobic attacks here in the UK and the hanging that are still occurring globally:

And my blog post on my Gay Pride inspired art which I also feel is relavent.
