Humor is an essential ingredient to life in Queerdom. Of course, it’s a big part of life in general, not just among LGBT folks. Finding humor in the face of judgments and discrimination is a part of advocacy. I’m always appreciative when others can make me laugh.
Here’s what did it for me today.
Performed by One Voice Chorus, from Charlotte, North Carolina, at their 2012 Holiday Show. Lyrics below.
If you lined up all the restaurants I’ve eaten all my life
Golden arches, Dish and Pinkys, and every other local dive
Then you gave me the choice of where I’d want to eat today
It’s a pretty tough decision, but it wouldn’t be Chick-Fil-A!
And I’m proud to be a homosexual where at least I know I’m free (except for certain rights)
And I won’t forget the chicken that died who gave their life for me.
So I grab this sandwich, lust for it but put it back down on the tray.
Cuz there ain’t no doubt, I won’t support hate. God Bless You Chick-Fil-A!
From the city of Atlanta to the hills of Tennessee. Across the plains of Balantyne and up in University.
On billboards all over Charlotte, those cows are painting hate
But there’s pride in this homosexuals heart and it’s time we stand and say.
