Olly Olly Oxen Free

 

 

We come out today

because Cleave Jones sewed,

Alvin danced

And RuPaul doesn’t always wear pants.

Leslie got the Stone Butch Blues

Patrick let Machos Sluts be his muse.

Because Harvey led,

Sheila did too.

Larry  did while making

conservatives go “boo hoo.”

Janet and Laverne

took a stand.

before even most queers

would lend them a hand.

Because queens and fairies

Fought arm in arm

Tired of police doing them harm.

Because Mattachine and

Daughters of Blitius

got sick and tired of folks

trying to hide us.

Michaelango helps timid ones

out of the closet-

the most popular ones.

We’ve come out

gay, queer, lesbian

asexual and nonbinary too.

We did this so

you could be

all you are meant for

and more than you can see.

If you think today is just about you

your world is too small.

Its time to come out

come out,

where ever you are.
