Sou um velho rato celibatário
- a lei não me permite casamento.

outros encontram sem dificuldade
o universo pronto a vestir

logo de manhã, desde que nasceram
Depois trajam todas as convenções

- Que lhes assentam bem, do colarinho
às mangas, até parece que Deus

é um alfaiate pr conta deles.
A nós a melhor roupa fica mal

- em nenhuma loja vendem apatos
que nos deixem ir noutra direcção,

nem anel que não faça propaganda
à ordem empre «natural» do mundo.

E Nunca Triste"

Quanto ao vídeo, talvez não saibam mas uma das meninas era a moreninha das Bananarama, lembram-se de "Venus"? Em 1988, Siobhan Máire Deirdre Fahey abandona a famosa girls band para se juntar a Marcella Detroit. O duo inspirou-se numa música dos Smiths para baptizar o projecto.

No âmbito da celebração dos 40 anos da revolta de Stonewall, este belíssimo vídeo acompanha a história e a evolução da sociedade durante o século XX.

Pride 2009 – Jon Gilbert Leavitt – Lyrics

Silk top hats and button shoes, erotic tintypes, midnight cruise, Berlin gay society 1903
Sigmund Freud’s Vienna’s hype, identifies the homo-type, The Intermediate Sex and Heterodoxy
The gay wave moves across the sea, hello there Miss Liberty, Betty Boop is hot and hooch is out in the cold
Greenwich Village, Bloomsbury, gays in high society, Harlem nights, Chicago fights, Leopold and Loeb…

Pride, gotta have pride – we’ve been around too long to keep it inside.
Pride, can’t sit back and watch from the side, pride is power and power is pride.
It’s time to celebrate all the colors of the rainbow, get out into the streets, follow the tide…

The Captive hits the Broadway stage, The Fleet’s In, Cadmus’ all the rage, and The Well of Loneliness appears on the stands
Depression, bread lines, Crystal Night, Adolf shows Olympic might, put on your pink triangles and put up your hands
A-Bomb, 50’s keen, the Kinseys shake the cocktail scene, James Dean, Mattachine, Doris Day and Harry Hay
Donald Webster Cory writes, Joe McCarthy picks a fight, J. Edgar, Roy Cohn shame on you, what else do you plan to do?

Christine Jorgensen’s reborn, Daughters of Bilitis form, Ginsberg, Naked Lunch, Giovanni’s Room.
Marilyn, the Beatnik scene, Jackie’s in her Cassini, Vatican II and something’s coming soon…
Summer 1969, the heat is rising all the time and over the rainbow Judy Garland sleeps
Stonewall Bar, men in blue, heads were broken bottles flew, “out of the bars and into the streets…”


Boys in the Band played, Bette Midler sang, those bathhouse days, Lance Loud, gay and proud, Oscar Wilde Bookstore
…Sister George, Doonesbury, Tales of the City, Anita Bryant, Village People, Studio 54
Harvey Milk, rough trade, Aaron Fricke’s prom date, GRID, Torch Song Trilogy, Boy George, GMHC
HIV identified, Rock Hudson, Liberace died, Bowers versus Hardwick’s heard, Reagan finally says the word…

Barney Frank, AIDS quilts, ACT-UP, Randy Shilts, Queer Nation, Mapplethorpe, AZT
Amendment 2, Cracker Barrel, “don’t ask, don’t tell,” Angels in America, March on DC
Greg Louganis, Elton John, George Michael, what is going on? Lilith Fair, riot grrls, spend a day at Disney World,
Cunanan scare, the McVeigh case, Ian, Ellen, Will & Grace,
Matthew Shepard- God bless you, what else can we look forward to…?

Gay-dot-com, VaxGen, another Bush in Washington, Millennium March, Mary Cheney, Queer as Folk
Dr. Laura’s evil ways, bug chasers, ex-gays, 9/11 – Mark Bingham, Father Mychal Judge.
Holland starts the marriage trend, Beanie Man and Eminem, L-Word, Dubya’s back, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.
Executions in Iran, no same-sex marriage ban, linguists discharged in Iraq, one step forward, two steps back…

Logo, Rosie, crystal meth, PNP, Mark Foley, Jim McGreevey, John Amaechi tells all
Doogie Howser, Lance Bass, Brokeback, Superman, Rufus does Judy at Carnegie Hall
Larry Craig – vice squad, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad – Dumbledore, Nutmeg State, Obama wins, so does Prop 8 -
Forty years ago who knew, when Miss Rivera threw her shoe – a raid became a movement – and our Fourth of July…
