LGBTQ Pride Month

Recommended Posts

The Academy of American Poets supports LGBTQ Pride Month with a great selection of gay poetry:  http://academyofamericanpoets.createsend1.com/t/ViewEmail/y/80D70051C302ACA7/10FDA5FEE832BC64FCACEB58A033025D

To get us started, here is the first stanza of Frank Bidart's very moving poem "Queer":

Queer

Lie to yourself about this and you will
forever lie about everything.

Everybody already knows everything

so you can
lie to them. That’s what they want.

But lie to yourself, what you will

lose is yourself. Then you
turn into them.
