We aren’t defined by straight society –
Freedom was won at a price for us all.
They bound us in shackles for centuries –
Now we are finding our ways to stand tall.
Some of us are murdered, thrown from towers –
This won’t stop us from loving openly.
Many still try to gag and oppress us,
But they won’t stop us expressing freely.
We fill the world with beauty and wonder;
We are a gift from God, which causes fear.
We stand proud in our glorious colours;
They failed to crush our pride in being queer.
