    I was just pondering....if the Supreme Court rules that GLTB have the same rights as everyone else....we need to have the biggest nationwide celebration that we have ever had! I realize that it does not end there. But I think that we, as individuals, as a community, and as a nation, deserve to to celebrate our rights and our Constitution.

    Who do you think should perform at such a celebration:


    I will get the list started:
    - Erasure
    - Cindi Lauper
    - Madonna
    - Cher
    - Gloria Gaynor
    - Elton John
    - Lady Gaga
    - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (Same Love)
    - Bette Midler
    - Barbra Streisand
    - Liza Minnelli
    - Pet Shop Boys
    - Pink

    Yes, a better, more direct pick of course. I had gone further back into my childhood to songs that spoke to me even though I had to read conveniently into their words to find meaning applicable to my gay life.

    Tenement slum

    You think that I don't feel love
    But what I feel for you is real love
    In other's eyes I see reflected
    A hurt, scorned, rejected

    Love child, never meant to be
    Love child, born in poverty
    Love child, never meant to be
    Love child, take a look at me


    I started my life in an old, cold run down tenement slum
    My father left, he never even married mom
    I shared the guilt my mama knew
    So afraid that others knew
    I had no name

    This love we're contemplating
    Is worth the pain of waiting

    We'll only end up hating
    The child we maybe creating

    Love child, never meant to be
    Love child, (scorned by) society
    Love child, always second best
    Love child, different from the rest


    Mm, baby (hold on, hold on, just a little bit)
    Mm, baby (hold on, hold on, just a little bit)
    I started school, in a worn, torn dress that somebody threw out
    I knew the way it felt, to always live in doubt
    To be without the simple things
    So afraid my friends would see the guilt in me

    Don't think that I don't need you
    Don't think I don't wanna please you
    No child of mine 'll be bearing
    The name of shame I've been wearing

    Love child, love child, never quite as good
    Afraid, ashamed, misunderstood

    But I'll always love you
    I'll always love you
    I'll always love you
    I'll always love you
    I'll always love you
    I'll always love you

    You mean like Roe versus Wade?
