“THE WAY THEY WERE” – marking 50 years since the partial decriminalization of Sexual Offences Act

THE WAY THEY WERE

There is danger in dark places

For men like us, there are no spaces

Where we can be proud, where we can be free

Where I can love you and you, can love me

 

We know how great the risk would be

We’d be ostracized by society

Our lives & careers would be ruined of course

By blackmail, prosecution, threats or force

 

Because of that we play the game

Of love that dare not speak its name

My problem is when I hear your voice

My spirit doth lift and my heart rejoice

 

My flesh is weak, but my spirit strong

I know in my heart it is not wrong

For man to love man, and boy to love boy

To share love and respect, happiness and joy

‘LOVE HAPPENS HERE’ London Pride theme poem 2017

Love happens here.

In family, L.G.B.T.

In our relationships far and near.

It’s the heart of us and we.

 

Love can be enough,

In sunshine or in showers.

When the going gets tough,

It’s Love that empowers.

 

Love is our Diversity,

It’s the best that we can be.

It’s the Talent and Creativity,

Within our Community.

 

Love is you and me.

We show it in a smile,

In our Endeavor and Tenacity,

In our ‘Fabulosa’ Style.

                   Yes, Love happens here.
