“Out” of Community

dearmoby
Moby

Moby says he’d “much rather align myself with the gay community than the straight community” and says that he still stands by statements he made some time ago that gays are “superior to straight people.” He explains: “I also said that if and when I ever have children, I want gay children, which didn’t really endear me to the Christian right wing of America. There are a lot of people in the world who are virulently homophobic or misogynistic or anti-Semitic, and what baffles me is that if you just look at it empirically, gays, women, and Jews are certainly responsible for far fewer violent crimes than straight white guys.”

Did you think I’d crumble?

quilt500
The AIDS Memorial Quilt, 1992

Go on now go walk out the door
Just turn around now
‘Cause you’re not welcome anymore
Weren’t you the one who tried to break me with goodbye
Did you think I’d crumble
Did you think I’d lay down and die
Oh no, not I
I will survive
As long as I know how to love
I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got all my life to live
I’ve got all my love to give
And I’ll survive

Gloria Gaynor, 1978

“All these conservative and right movements must wake up and understand one basic fact: gays were born gays, and even if any of them would love to become straight they can’t change the nature! Homosexuality is not a social disease. Those who think it is either are illiterate or have bad intentions of subordinating everything and everyone. Homophobia is a plague to be stopped unless it spreads all around the world. Aren’t there any bigger problems?” Are we really in the third wave?

Strange infatuation seems to grace the evening tide.
I’ll take it by your side.
Such imagination seems to help the feeling slide.
I’ll take it by your side.
Instant correlation sucks and breeds a pack of lies.
I’ll take it by your side.
Oversaturation curls the skin and tans the hide.
I’ll take it by your side.

Allegiance

Tell me do you really think you go to hell for having loved?
Tell me and not for thinking everything that you’ve done is good
After soaking the body of Jesus Christ in blood
I may just never see you again or might as well
You took advantage of a world that loved you well

I am just “happy”

lancebass

Lance Bass

“When most people come out, they deal with it out of the public eye, and they start getting educated about it. Me, I had 24 hours to say what I had to say on a subject I had no clue about… It was a very normal phrase among my circle of friends—and they’d always say, ‘You’re such a SAG’ — a straight-acting gay. So I reveal that to People magazine, and it looks like I created this phrase and [that] I’m trying to start this movement that you should be straight-acting if you’re gay. It’s just dumb!” Lance Bass

Get Through

Will Young

It only makes me stronger
When you say I won’t succeed
I’ll work that bit harder
When you say you see no strength in time
The barriers, I’ll break them down
I’ll prove myself, I’ll stick around
I’ll get through it all somehow
Nothing’s unreachable
