We have to stand


open, tolerant,

affirming difference,

diverse, celebratory,

and centred on need.


We have to strive

for this wholesome society.


We have to stand against

those who want to

reduce these core values,

and who silence the voices

of those without power,

of those without money,

of those without


or choices

or place.


We have to be bold

and say that what

is touted now as mainstream

is actually wrong.
