Happy 100th Birthday, Harry Hay!

 

Harry HayOut of history we emerge,
A separate people whose time is at hand,
Out of the mists of our long oppression,
We bring love for ourselves and for each other,
And love for the gifts we bear.
So heavy and so painful the fashioning of them,
So long the road given us to travel to bring them.

A separate people,
We bring a gift to celebrate each other;
Tis a gift to be gay!
Feel the pride of it!

A separate people,
We bring the gift of our consciousness to everyone,
That all together we may heal our planet!
Share the magic of it!

-Harry Hay-Founder of the First Mattachine Society and the Radical Faeries and this is his Birthday this month.
