You wanna be an Activist?
Change the World?

Be yourself -- without apology and without shame,
walking hand in hand in public with the one you love
knowing that is a loving act of
Protest.

You want people to change?
Laws to change?
A global transformation into a shimmering butterfly society?

Then You must change,
be yourself
be Real

Knowing that the most powerful activists in the world
are those people
who are
unashamedly
Themselves

-- "The Activist Poem" by Peterson Toscano (Hat tip to Marcia-Mom.)
