Proud Hag

As a high school theatre geek in the 1970s, I was priviledged to have several gay friends.  Almost all were closeted.  It was not safe to come out;  even inside the closet,  they were brutally bullied. Their tormentors called them fags and called girls like me fag hags. I claim that title with pride.

We lost too many of our brothers along the road. I wish Matthew Shepherd had lived to see this dsy. I wish my friend Don Strothers had not died of AIDS but was here now to celebrate.

Love is love. I don't know much, but I've known that for 40 years.

All I Gotta Do Is...

They're gonna put me in the Green Show
They're gonna make a big star out of me
The biggest fool to ever hit the big time
And all I gotta do is - act naturally
