Poem: Gay Pride, Mind Opened Wide

Gay Pride, Mind opened wide, an LGBT poem by Daphne Tore / Dean Thorpe

Go to Gay Pride, Mind opened wide.
Interesting sights, Some transvestites.
Party is free, Just go and see.
Not all the same, Life’s not a game.
We all can feel, Equality is real.
Open your mind, See what you find.
Gay bi or straight, Don’t turn up late

Poem: Fluidity

Fluidity, LGBT poem by Daphne Tore / Dean Thorpe

I want to tell you a tale
Of someone not quite male or female
When I get up each morning
While all the others are still yawning
I am struggling to know
If it’s a girl or boy that will show
It’s because inside my head
Is a mixture of genders instead
Part male, part female, part none
It’s not something i’m choosing for fun
I cannot choose it at all
I just have to get up and stand tall
Knowing a girl is inside
Maybe a boy not wanting to hide
I am not mad or crazy
Not picking a genders not lazy
Some days I really am male
But others so completely female
Most days it’s more of a mix
It’s not a problem I want to fix
Please tell me who does it hurt
If some days I need to wear a skirt
I am open about it
Always happy to talk about it
All I want is to be free
To be whichever I need to be
I feel so lucky to know
My partner loves me whoever shows
My partner does understand
That it’s not something I ever planned
Proud to have her by my side
Now my true self never has to hide

Poem: Being free to be me

Being Free To Be Me, an LGBT / Mental health poem

Written by Daphne Tore / Dean Thorpe

I am me,

I will always be me,

nobody I’d rather be than me

I am free,

I don’t need any key,

to be whatever I want to be

They see me,

people always judge me,

I am not what I appear to be

Drink some tea,

or have a chat with me,

think whatever you want about me

Look and see,

most don’t really know me,

so try to really understand me

I will be,

​whatever I will be,

doesn’t matter if they accept me

Come with me,

so we can all be free,

to live our lives how we want to be

Just be free,

you are free to just be,

you can be you and I can be me!
