Lilywhite Lies Slideshow – WORLD AIDS DAY

Lilywhite Lies

Hey yo yo, How ya go?
I hear you don’t like me ‘cause I’m a homo
Heard rumours ‘round you don’t wish me well
Say I’m a devil child and goin’ to hell
You preach to crowds I’m bad and wild
Spread disease and rape your child
Say if I don’t repent it’s God’s punishment
A case of AIDS I’ll get
I say, “You wanna bet?”
You hate me, berate me
But you forget God did create me
You say it’s true, you hands’ll heal
But let me tell you preacher
You ain’t the real deal
So listen minister, hear my story reverend
Until you love me you ain’t goin’ to heaven
Ho ho

CHORUS: It’s just another case of lilywhite lies, Lilywhite holy white

Hey yo yo, what you know?
Havin’ some trouble just sayin’ no?
You read the papers? Hear what they say?
“You’ll only catch AIDS if you’re black or you’re gay.”
So don’t worry America, you’ll live a long life
Keep your eyes shut to the pain and the strife
There are millions out there that’ll die in a year
But don’t get excited, Don’t shed a tear
Just keep livin’ your lives like it doesn’t exist
‘Til it hits you, then you’ll be pissed
Maybe too late just to pick up and run
With your daughter, your wife, your husband or son
‘Cause it’s over in Europe, it’s big in Japan
Africa’s got it and even Iran
So come on home, open your eyes,
Everyone knows a young person who dies

CHORUS: It’s just another case of lilywhite lies, Lilywhite holy white

Now if everyone you know is either scared to death or dyin’
It’s time to ACT UP, ‘cause they all killin’ you with lyin’
Like they care about your lover, they wanna find a cure
But all the money’s spent on weapons to fight a secret war
They love to watch the numbers mount
‘Cause people of color and faggots and women don’t count
When they round us up and jail us, it won’t be new news
Remember fifty years ago, Hitler did it to the Jews
So take it to the streets and write the President a letter
Denying there’s a crisis won’t make anyone better
HELP ME!

CHORUS: It’s just another case of lilywhite lies, Lilywhite holy white

They love to watch the numbers mount
Don’t wanna be a number
Don’t wanna be what they want me to be
Another number

Same-sex Marriage dot ca

Thirty years ago, homos had a heart on for promiscuity and the right wing vilified us. Today homos have a heart on for monogamy and marriage and the right wing vilifies us. Let’s face it. They don’t like us. We’re here, we’re queer – get on with it!

Rotten to the core © Vincenzo Aiosa

I think it is really Rotten that we are still not allowed to get married in New York State- thanks to a bunch of Republican Assholes in Albany. Also adding to the list of assholes are the Democrats who voted against the bill included Sens. Joseph Addabbo, Shirley Huntley, George Onorato and Hiram Monserrate of Queens, Carl Kruger of Brooklyn, Ruben Diaz Sr. of the Bronx, Darrel Aubertine of the North Country, and William Stachowski of the Buffalo area. – Vincenzo Aiosa – Rantourage

Frank Jump and Vincenzo Aiosa got married on Valentine’s Day, February 14th 2004 in Toronto, Canada.

Thank you Equal Marriage Canada, The Great City and People of Toronto, The Honorable Justice Harvey Brownstone and his partner Marty, and Brendan Fay and Jesús Lebrón!

Homo Sex in Colonial America

This is the last piece I had input on from my just departed dearly beloved Rodger McFarlane, who read and critiqued everything I have ever written. He loved it, as he loved me. And I pass it on to you, to the world, in memory of him, who encouraged me so and believed in me so, as I did him.

May he be at peace.
