The celebrations have begun and we will fly our flag and sing our song of equality with pride. We are queer in all its rich colours. We are lesbian, gay, trans,bi and gender diverse.
We will not be silenced or cowed by homophobia. We will not hide in the shadows of fear. We are your family, your neighbours, your work colleagues, your friends. We are young, we are teens, we are mature aged, we are elderly.
We walk your streets, we go to your church, your mosque, your synagogue, your temple.
We ride on your trains, we serve you at cafes, we entertain you, we represent you in politics, we drink in your pubs we police your community, we serve in your military.
We are people who invite you to stand with us against homophobia.
