Bob Chapman: Everett, Washington
Every gay person must come out....Once they realize...we are indeed everywhere, every myth, every lie, every innuendo will be destroyed once and all. And once you do, you will feel so much better.

Weary of all trumpeting, weary of all killing,
weary of all songs that sing promise, non-fulfilling,
we would raise, O Christ, one song;
we would join in singing
that great music pure and strong,
wherewith heaven is ringing.
—Martin H. Franzmann (1907-1976), alt., from The Hymnal 1982, number 572 (New York: The Church Hymnal Corporation, 1985)
