I'm done repressing my gayness
Because it's the "Christian" thing to do.
I will wear fucking rainbow nipple pasties
And march in a pride parade
If I please
And then go to church and praise Jesus
And God and the Holy Spirit
For making the way I am
And how I am
Because he made me perfect.
I am gay
I am Christian
I am proud to be both.
My frightened friend once said to me:
"I'm scared... I think I'm gay, no longer straight!"
To which I replied:
"I do not care, I like you for who you are, and to me you're still my mate"
Growing up gay wasn't easy.
Always knowing I was different to the rest.
I never felt right, never felt normal.
Because I'm not.
But sometimes difference is good, isn't it?
I've accepted myself.
But some haven't.
