Because…..

gay men and lesbians are discriminated
against in housing and employment

AND because how we act is more important than who we are

AND if we get harassed it's our problem

AND if we get attacked we provoked it

AND if we raise our voices we're flaunting ourselves

AND if we enjoy sex we're perverts

AND if we have AIDS we deserve it

AND if we march with pride we're recruiting children

AND if we want to have children we're unfit parents

AND if we stand up for our rights we're over-stepping our boundaries

AND because we are forced constantly to question our own worth as human beings

AND if we don't have a relationship with someone of the opposite sex we haven't given it a chance

AND if we have a relationship with someone of the same sex
it is not recognized

AND we are told our love is not "real"

AND if we come out of the closet we're just going through a phase

AND because lesbian and gay history is virtually absent from literature

AND because homophobia is sanctioned by the supreme court

AND.....
For lots and lots of other reasons,


I am part of the lesbian &
gay civil rights movement.
