LGBT Poetry Challenge


This post was supposed to have gone up last week, but since I’ve been incredibly busy, I was not able to post it. I thought I’d just go ahead and post it anyway. Again, if you want to check out all the wonderful posts and happenings in celebration of LGBT month, go visit Cayce’s and Laura’s blogs.
