“GREY”,WORDCOUNT EXERCISE FOR LGBT CREATIVE WRITING GROUP, MERSEYSIDE,BY STEVEN BENSON.11.7.16

GREY…….on Liverpool Pride weekend?????!!!!

Let us counterpoint it against RAINBOW colours:
GREY is not gay; its

HETERONORMATIVE

Fear of difference

Joylessness

ABSENCE;

nondescript.


GREY= INTERNALIZED HOMOPHOBIA(we all have it, but to varying degrees); it can make a blank, GREY slate of us; erase us, like rubbing out multi-coloured chalk on a (GREY) board; for others to write over.20160710_123511.jpg

we are divided and split off from each other and from ourselves; GREY shadows

_________________________________________

However, we need to COMBAT this insidious grey{little case now} by:

AN INSISTENCE, we

 

CELEBRATE OUR DIVERSTY AND DIFFERENCE (from each other and the normativising);

CELEBRATE our
RAINBOW

Variegated

Colours;

Vivid

Shining

HUES.

————————–To be… OURSEVES: FULL,PRESENT; get over it, we are here; the OPPOSITE to erasing forces of taupe and grey; of melancholy,abjection and colourlessness
