And there are so many others...
The criminal Chimp Bush regime is falling apart like a soggy bag of shit. Even the dummest yankees now know that Iraq is a disaster. The Republicans lost control of Congress. Ted Haggart literally blew the wingnuts off the electoral map. And here at home, after threatening to give Stephen Harper a majority.Quebec flipped Great Leader onto his tummy and fucked him in the ass. Ooh la la. Ouch!
And then there was our glorious gay cause. For those of us who fly the rainbow flag of freedom this was another winning year.
Ours is the noblest and best cause in the world. The one that really stands for tolerance and diversity. The one that doesn't hate or exclude anyone. The one that doesn't attack others with baseball bats. The one that just wants everyone to be free. Free to love the ones they love.
I didn't choose to be gay. But boy I'm glad I am. I'm proud to belong to such a beautiful gay family of all races, languages, and religions.
Proud to belong to the great liberation movement that despite all the hate, the setbacks, and the disappointments. Keeps marching on towards that glorious day when we will all be free.
And I mean all of us........ gay and straight.
A movement where every generation is playing its part coz it has to. The seniors who were thrown in jail when they were young or lost their jobs just because they were gay. The AIDS holocaust generation who fought for the rights of our dying brothers.When nobody else would. The thirty something slackers who led the fight for gay marriage.
Then there's my generation that does all kinds of things..... like.....um.....cleaning up after the Gay Pride parade
Oh boy was that fun!! Although next year I want security...
And then behind us are the kids. Who are coming out earlier all the time. Who are joining our struggle and making us proud.
When I see a really young gay or lesbian couple walking down the street holding hands unafraid to show their love. I feel like doing one of these.....
If gay and lesbian kids can be protected from bigots and bullies so they can be free to spread their wings and fly like me. And love who they want to love. Instead of having their lives snuffed out or stunted by hate. Then they will be the generation that finally leads us to victory one day.
So we know what we have to do next year. But you knew that...
So right now I'd just like to thank all my blogging friends who made my first year as a blogger such a fun and rewarding experience. People like Mark, and Bruce, and JJ, and Scout, and Lenny, and Waterboy, and Beep, and Jay, and Kenn and Scott and Rashid. And all my other friends.
And of course I'd like to thank Sebastien my hero and lover. For everything. Bonne Année mon amour!!!!!!
Sebastien who made me promise today that I wouldn't climb the giant cross on Mount Royal. And dance on it as the New Year roars in. And the fireworks soar into the sky. And the ships blow their horns in the harbour below. As I'm always threatening to do. Especially when I'm drunk....
So instead I think I'll let this young couple from Derby, England ring in the New Year. With their awesome sync version of this eurodance classic...in Romanian!!!
Wow!! Numa ...numa....yay. Doesn't that want to make you get up and dance? How dare they bully them? How can we lose? Long live our precious gay and lesbian youth!
Long live our beautiful rainbow family!
Long live our glorious freedom cause!!!!
