Isle of Wight Pride Theme Poem

I’ve been commissioned to write the theme poem for the Isle of Wight Pride 2018. I’m going to be there all weekend, and and looking forward to being part of the UK National Pride-winning Pride on this beautiful island.


Stepping into our Destiny.

Moving into the light.

Proud to be L.G.B.T.

Here, on the Isle of Wight.

 

Remembering our History.

Poets. Artists. Sailors.

Rooted in this island’s rock,

Farmers. Fighters. Tailors.

 

Celebrating who we are,

Stylish, full of life.

Welcoming Loves diversity

Its harmony and strife

 

Honoring our Community,

And how our lives can be.

The courage and creativity,

Embedded in L.G.B.T.

 

On this day we send a message

To our family worldwide.

Be yourself, you’re beautiful!

There is no need to hide

This poem was the result of the workshop on sexual stereotyping and bullying

#OPENING UP

 

Stereotypes are boring.

Stereotypes feel tight.

What’s the point of squashing in

To something that doesn’t feel right.

 

It’s okay to be different.

It’s okay to be Queer.

We’re all the same just under our skin

We deserve to live without fear.

 

Bullies are pathetic.

Bullies are uncool.

If they think hate can make it right

They really are the fool.

 

Just relax and be yourself

Don’t worry what people say

Be the person you want to be

Non binary, Straight or Gay
