The Stonewall Pride festivities are in full swing! The Saturday part of the party was great, so many people from all over the world coming together, I enjoyed that very much. Seeing members, no matter how different they are, interacting with love and respect, was awesome.

This thread is for everyone, to share impressions and thoughts and just about everything you want to say about our Pride Party. Maybe you want to add something about a conversation from the party? Maybe you wanna tell us what you liked (or disliked)? Or you took that great screenshot you want the whole community to see? This is the thread for all of that!

There was a question about one German rap song by Sookee & Tapete called "ProHomo" and what exactly they are talking about. So, this morning I sat down to make a quick translation of that text:

(Sokee's part)
...difficult, oh oh, I anticipate it...

Hip Hop has problems, because a big part of this scene
doesn't want to accept that men also desire men.
They want to keep them from living their love.
This track wants to move something, I am pro and not against!

This is Pro Homo, Hip Hop (the music) is not to blame
the society has kept that door shut for a long time
because the man is seen as a man when the desire he feels
is performed with dominance and never touches another man.
This norm goes even further, it includes clothing and much more,
men shall never fail it otherwise it goes "are you gay or what",
a bitter doubt on coolness and strength.
This phenomenon doesn't only exist in baggy-style, it also wears ties
in all parts of society, as single and especially in crowds,
the manager, the keeper at the door, look the comrades are shouting as brothers in a choir.
But also in the center, on the left and in houses of worship
there are rigid pictures of manhood who hope that nobody sees how fragile they are
which actually makes them easy to deconstruct.
All these lame ducks seem to think that the phallus is a heterosexual and they own it...
Boys, turn on your brain,
if you are real men you are cool with queer, everything else is crocked.

Pro Homo! And the time is here
Pro Homo! This is not an easy thing
How can one hate that people love each other
the normalcy longs for peace at last

And then I hear them say that everything is okay nowadays
because there are some prominent gay men and "Brokeback Mountain"
but I marvel at the persistence of the idea of an order between women and men
which is dripping too much with tradition to keep it.
Identity is important and all, but 'the one and the other' is also hiding traps
What do we think we know?
What are only cliches?
The stereotypes take up ground.
How do they wanna know who fucks whom when
if they say they are so disgusted by it...
And oh by the way, there's also everyday life, and Ramadan and Hanukkah or Christmas
Just imagine: Gay people are just as kind or dumb as everyone else,
that's just how it is.
Everyone claims respect and tolerance for themselves
but then somehow that doesn't count for others...
If God really exists, God loves all humans.
If God really exists, God sees no borders.

Pro Homo! And the time is here
Pro Homo! This is not an easy thing
How can one hate that people love each other
the normalcy longs for peace at last

(Tapete's part)
Don't tell me about the pope,
the pope is a German homophobic old man who employs Holocaust-deniers
that bloke hunts witches and reintroduced the exorcism.
Don't believe this dark medieval age stuff, give them the middle finger instead!
Give contra to the fascists, change your vocabulary
because you are playing into their hands with hateful homophobic words.

Have you ever been deeply in love and thought this was 'the big one' ?
There simply are no differences in same-sex relations, only more problems
because showing the love to the outside is still called 'having a coming-out'
a 'coming-out' implies the crossing of a border in a society with too little time.
This is not Genesis, forget Adam and Eve,
This is about Eve and Ella
and also about Adam and Peter
This is not religiously or genetically caused
This is just sex and love,
so let us start over (let us start over, let us start over)

Pro Homo! And the time is here
Pro Homo! This is not an easy thing
How can one hate that people love each other
the normalcy longs for peace at last

Who Killed Voleron?

We had a great turn out for the murder mystery, of who stabbed Dave to death. Our investigators scoured the Fleet Starbase looking for clues and questioning the suspects. In the end, KnightChucky, @DanaDark, and @laceyrand deduced that @robertjaneway had gleefully stabbed Dave to death, while laughing manically no doubt. Congratulations to all the winners and thank you to all my suspects for helping out.
