EXCUSE ME MR PUTIN

You can’t take the Gay out of Games, Mr Putin,
There are too many of us about.
The ones in your team will be winning you medals
Rather than struggling to come out.

You can’t keep us out of Russia,
You see, we’re a part of real life.
For we are your son and daughter,
Comrade, husband and wife.

It’s our hands that rock the cradle.
It’s our cash that keeps Russia afloat.
So you better wise up to Pink Politics,
Or you might find you lose our vote.

Your Games will be flooded with queer athletes,
The world will be sending its best.
Your audience will be filled with homosexuals,
Cheering along with the rest.

The world is watching Mr Putin,
And it’s filled with homosexuals like me.
So change your policy, up your game
Or an international laughing stock be.

“One Night in Heaven”

I wrote this poem for LGBT History Month 2016.  Its title comes from the theme of the last night of the H.M.’s  Ball, held by Camden Forum at Islington Assembly Hall.

It’s about the dead Gay, Historical Characters I would like to meet during one night in Heaven.

It is a  living interactive poem. I am shrouded in ghost-like white. The text I am wearing names and honours some of  our deceased Gay Icons.

SCHWULE

“Schwule” is a living interactive poem written for International Holocaust Day. The pink triangles I am wearing are inscribed with the words used to describe homosexuals (in German and English) during Gestapo rule. See the video of poem in Video section of website.

Remember those poor unfortunate men

Of every race, age and religion…the 175’s,

Rounded up, incarcerated in concentration camps

Because they were Homosexual.

 

Respect those 20,000 men,

Who lost their friends, families and businesses,

Who were beaten, tortured and castrated.

Labelled with a pink triangle…the lowest of the low.

 

Resolve to never again return

To those dark days of terror and evil.

Fight injustice and inequality,

Encourage love, regardless of race or gender.

 

I can choose to remove these labels,

Live and love freely, be Glad to be Gay.

Those men were not so fortunate.

Remember, Respect and Honour them today.
