Straight Pride

To the girl that's says, "what about straight pride,"

Do you know how stupid you sound?! Straight pride is being able to walk in public holding your lover's hand and not risk violence. Straight pride is being able to talk to your parents about your sexual preference and not be judge about it. Homosexuality is a sin to this world. We have one month, one, in which we get to be open about who we are without judgment. The risk of death because of being open about what we like is high only topped by the suicide rate for people of the. LGBTQ+ community because we are not accepted by neither our parents or our peers. We hide and lie to avoid risking exposure to society and it's hate crimes. So I'm sorry if we, as a community, don't fuck with "straight pride"

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
My country
Our world
