I will survive your stares and glares 
Your hateful words, your jokes unfair 
I will outlast your prejudice views 
Your damnation of me will not come true 
A proud gay man, that’s me 
 
Tie me to a fence, shred my clothes 
Take my dignity, take my soul 
You’ve accomplished nothing in your feat 
A proud gay man, that’s me 
 
The stereotypes you project 
Your tactics of no regret 
Related to that of Klan 
Yet in my face, you shake my hand 
A proud gay man, that’s me 
 
My goals, my success 
The intimidation weighs on your chest 
You can’t understand the way I feel 
Not now and never will 
A proud gay man, that’s me 
 
You hold your signs 
You lead your march 
You guide your children into the dark 
Nothing you do can effect who I’ll be 
A proud gay man, that’s me 
 
The things you teach, the words you preach 
The way you vote warrants defeat 
You think you’re right, and never wrong 
You plague my lifestyle like a song 
A proud gay man, that’s me 
 
I have no rights like you do 
Equality avoids me, the same as you 
It’s not fair, though my head I’ll hold high 
I will not go down without a fight 
A proud gay man, that’s me 
 
Why do you care who I love? 
Does it impact your life or lord above? 
Just love me as you love yourself 
Leave the judging to someone else 
A proud gay man, that’s me 
 
Peace, equality, unity and love 
They all fit like a glove 
That’s what I want, hope and need 
A proud gay man, that’s me
