Praise song for African Lesbians

Hella…hella
Our daughter has come home
Hella…hella
The one who has been cast away is home
Let us dance and rejoice today
Shame on those who do not acknowledge
my daughter’s homecoming
The African!
Shame on those who treated my daughter
as the stepchild of this continent
Lesbian, gay, transgender, transsexual, bisexual, heterosexual… The image of the goddess, all of them…
Sons and daughters of Africa
Gods and goddesses!
Much beloved, know that nothing will separate you
from the love which is you
No homophobic dictators
No rejecting parents and siblings
No religion
No sodomy law
What took you so long to find your way home, daughter?
We have prepared a feast for you
Let all the world behold
Our daughter has arrived
The lesbian
The African lesbian
Sela…sela…
Africa
rejoice!

This poem was written for the launch of Cal in windhoek in 2005.
