Parents Lie
by lauryn knight

Your parents will say they love you
No matter what,
Until you’re gay.


Your parents love you
And you are their pride and joy.
They just can’t wait for the day you
Grow up
And get married and

The Boy Beyond the Binary
by Aditya Tiwari

At the age of five,
As he reaches for his mother’s favourite Ruby Woo,
She tells him to put the lipstick down.
“But mommy, why doesn’t my sister have to?”
But his mother didn’t respond.

At the age of eight, he cannot understand
Why the boys on the playground got mad,
When he couldn’t play like a sportsman.

My Story
by Samantha Barany

there was this girl who knew she was different
did she know why? no she didn't.
every day she would get bullied at school
labeled "freak" "cutter" and "uncool"

later in life she turned 15.
she had a whole different view of the world, that was unseen.
she did some research and wrote some stuff down
she discovered one thing and upon it, it was majorly frowned.

The Girl in the Mirror
by Marta Gomez

I once wrote a poem,
About a mirror on a wall,
And the reflection of a girl,
Whom only could see fat,
One day seems that the mirror,
Started to talk to this beautiful gal,
And one morning in November,
When the city was reached by the sun,
The reflection of this girl,
Disappeared from the wall,

dear straight people
by Cecily G

i am queer.
i am my school’s gsa
i am asking people’s pronouns
i am a sign on my teachers door that says “all are welcome here”
i am a couple who can’t hold hands on the street without being hate crimed
i am a protest against supreme court justices who live in a world where 7.1% of the population they swore to protect cannot live their lives being who they are unless they are behind the bars of a jail cell and don’t think to do anything to change it
i am the singular pride flag swaying lonely in the wind of a small suburban town in connecticut
i am millions of people who just want to be left alone but who’s mere existence spawns twitter debates with 80-year-olds
i am a romance novel with cartoon drawings of two women on the cover
i am mistranslated bible verses used in arguments against queer rights

The garden of our love
by Matteo Guidi

Queer love, difficult to define,
blooms like the garden's reddest rose, Facing the sun like a sunflower,
yet a roller coaster in repose.
It thrives even in desiccated soil,
its growth feels like magic, pure. Yearning for your love's company,
a longing, a wanting so sure.
When apart,
it feels like a piece of yourself has gone astray, Awaiting the laughter of your soulmate,
your partner, every day.
A glimpse, a sound, that will never come,
