A friend of mine posted this video on his facebook today and I thought I would share it.



I will go ahead and type out what it says for people who can't watch it.

"I want to know what it's like...
to be normal
to be accepted
to be human
to be equal
to be free

I want to know what it's like...
to be open
to be heard
to be loved
to be happy
to be me

I want to know what it's like...
to feel like I belong
to feel like I am strong
that who I am isn't wrong

I want to know what it's like...
to know that I am here
that I will make it through the year
that I won't disappear

I want to know what it's like...
to not have to fight
to see an end in sight
to make what is wrong right

I want to know what it's like...
to beable to believe in a higher power
that doesn't see me as sin or sodomy

I want to know what it's like...
to have liberty and justice for all
to break down this dividing wall
to remove homophobia from the law

I want to know what it's like...
to have a feeling that isn't sad
to have something i've never had
to have a child call me dad

I want to know what it's like...
to not feel like i'm a freak
to not feel like I am weak
to not be silenced when I speak

I want to know what it's like...
to live beyond a closet door
to see my father once more
to show him I'm not who I was before

I want to know what it's like...
to donate the blood from my vains
but because I'm gay I must refrain
why does my sexuality pertain

I want to know what it's like...
to not be expelled from school
to not be made to look like a fool
how is my homosexuality breaking a rule

I want to know what it's like...
to undo what's been done to me
to give sight to those who cannot see
that i am no lesser of a human being

I wan't to know what it's like...
to not be considered a disease
to not have a majority I have to please
to freely express my individuality

I want to know what it's like...
to live in a land truly of the free
not a land that excludes me
this is not how it's supposed to be

I want to know what it's like...
to not be the target of bigotry
to not have you question my sanity
to not succumb to your superiority

I want to know what it's like...
to overcome all of my fears
to uncry these countless tears
that have been shed over the years

I want to know what it's like...
to learn about gay leaders of the past
in my highschool history class

to not have to hide
to not have to lie my whole life
to not have sexuality be denied

I want to know what it's like...
to not have to feel this hurt inside
to not think these thouhts in my mind
to not contemplate suicide

I want to know what it's like...
to have this pain in me subside
to heal this wound that bleeds inside
to get back the tears that i've cried
to take back the years that i've tried
to bring back the life that has died
to unite this worlds divide
to make change with stride
to not stand below and bumped aside

I want to know what it's like...
to have this choice you say is mine
to have science and religion intertwine
to have love be redifiined

I want to know what it's like...
to have a government that wont instate
unfiar laws that provoke hate
for fear society will dissinagrate

I want to know what it's like...
to live in a world without hate
a world that does not discriminate
a world in which I can feel safe
whether I'm gay,bi, or straight
this is the world we must create
these are the actions we must take
these are the decisions we must make
the time is now
we cannot/must not/ will not wait

I want to know what it's like...
to have equal opportunity
to know full equality
to be one humanity

I want to know what it's like
to be treated equally by my peers
to stand along side every queer
on the edge of a new frontier
a frontier that no one will dictate
a frontier where there will be no debate
a frontier in which everyone can relate
a frontier made up of love and not hate

I want to know what it's like...
to open your eyes so you can see
the way this world is supposed to be
that we aren't so dfferent you and me"


Even though this video is talking about homosexuality, it can be applied to other issues as well. The message is clear, we must stop the hate. LOVE IS LOUDER

I liked the message, it echoes the entire society

Yeah I'm not gay either, (or rather lesbian if it makes a difference seing as I am female) my friend who posted it is. I just really liked the overall meaning of the video. It pretty much covers all of the descriminations that go on in society.

I really like these parts:

"I want to know what it's like...
to not have to fight
to see an end in sight
to make what is wrong right"


"I want to know what it's like...
to live in a world without hate
a world that does not discriminate
a world in which I can feel safe
whether I'm gay,bi, or straight
this is the world we must create
these are the actions we must take
these are the decisions we must make
the time is now
we cannot/must not/ will not wait"
