Baby Dyke Tears

Oh those baby dyke days. Memories of rejection triggered by It’s A Sin. The relative who wrote banning me from seeing her child as she’d had to scrub the house after my visit, “cos of the AIDS”. The bestie who declared maybe we shouldn’t be mates – “cos her dad said AIDS is God’s righteous judgement”. The rejection, the homophobia, the words that went deep and left lifelong scars. No wonder so many of us are shedding so many tears as we watch. No wonder so many of us carry so much. Thank you to Russell T Davies for the airing – literally – of our lives. I don’t know about you but I needed that.
