  • Tags: coming out

Page 1 of a typed poem titled getting gay<br />
<br />
unlike coming out -- <br />
a political stance<br />
zeroes in<br />
on the totally personal <br />
part<br />
being a self acknowledgement<br />
of one's gayness<br />
getting gay <br />
a self acceptance<br />
acceptance of self<br />
a getting ones self<br />
together on another level <br />
of consciousness<br />
<br />
a level of consciousness <br />
--a gate to expansion<br />
each time i've reached<br />
a new level<br />
it caused total<br />
re-examination of my past<br />
in the light of this new level<br />
<br />
just as getting gay is<br />
a swinging in closer to the personal<br />
--another different closer to self<br />
level of the coming out process
A poem written by Susan Sojourner on the topics of sexuality, self-identity, and social justice.
