H.R.O. Poem

Today I’m coming out….

as a Straight Ally….

in support of LGBT equality.
and the Jacksonville Human Rights Ordinance.
in support of my brother.
in support of my sister.
in support of my mother.
in support of my father.
in support of my friends.
in support of my colleague.
in support of my employees.
in support of my community.
in support of non-discrimination.
in support of everyone’s right to marry.
in support of basic Human Rights.
in support of the pursuit of happiness.
in support of LOVE.
I will stand by your side….
I’m coming out….because there is nothing more important than our humanity.
