What would you do if I told you the truth? Would you scorn me and steer clear of me? If I showed you my heart would you tear me apart Or join me in joy that I’m free?
What can I do to bring a breakthrough,
To help you to see that I am still me,
That nothing has changed and I am not strange?
Is there any way we will agree?
Can you open your mind and try to be kind?
I cast off my chains. Can you do the same?
Abandon your sneers and question your fears.
Don't leave me out in the rain.
I am your kin and I am your friend,
Hidden beside you and longing for truth.
Would you embrace me and let me be me?
You see, I am LGBTQ.
