A PanAfricanist Queer Womanist Collective
By Q Petros
Does race make me stand out?
Does gender make me stand out?
Does profession make me stand out?
The questions will go on and on and on, but what makes you stand out what makes me stand out?
All the success in my life, achievements, good deeds are all being overshadowed, deprived of, denied the chance to make me stand out just because of my sexuality.
They label me because of homosexuality!
Even if I get to a finish line first in a race that wont make me stand out my homosexuality will!
Even if I win all my court cases and be the best lawyer that wont allow me to stand out as my homosexuality will!
Even if I save the world from a deadly disease that wont make me stand out,why? Because my homosexuality will.
Is homosexuality that much of a distraction? What makes me different from my fellow women who love men? is it because I am a woman who loves other women?In that case i will stand up to fight for my right to stand out,for my success to out shine my sexuality
I stand up Africa, so that I can stand out …
