Who Can Fly the Rainbow Flag?

A poem of pride and solidarity

When Gilbert stitched his flag
He didn’t think of me
He made it for the silent
Shunned and shamed
The outcast and alone
He made it for the child
Expelled from home for
Being different from the rest
He made it for others
Not me, no, not for me
