Queer History

I am thankful for queer history.

However hidden it has been.

I am thankful for the great artists and engineers of the Renaissance.

I am thankful for DaVinci and Michelangelo.

Queer artists during the peak of the Catholic Church.

I am thankful for Burroughs and Ginsberg.

Queer poets who openly spoke and wrote about their sexuality.

I am thankful for Turing and Sara Josephine Baker.

Queer scientists who helped advance our world in so many ways.

I am thankful for queer history despite its erasure.

I am thankful for queer history because it validates me.

I am thankful for queer history because I am a part of it.
