“You don’t LOOK gay.”

And she looks at him with a straight face and says: “You don’t look gay.” Well what does gay look like?…

 Is it the smile? The way he has of flashing that million dollar display to hide how uncomfortable he really is.

 Or it his walk? The walk that sends that secret message to trade.

 Is it the skin? That costume that we were all born into. The one that he wears that says, “Don’t hate me because I’m different.” That stuffy costume that it took him years to love.

 Is it his hands? The hands that were made for men, that were made to please.

 It IS the eyes. The sparkle that shines in his eyes when he thinks about his LGBTQ brothers and sisters being accepted as equals. As human beings.
