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
