‘What is time?
Is it eternity
Or just a hope for peace on earth?’
Billy Porter sings out from the heart, as a liberated queer elder who has “been there, done that, worn that dress” to the young people of today to let their hearts open and their soul’s joyful spirit emerge.
In his song ‘Time’ he shares this deep truth…
‘Time for change
Its time to care
It’s not too late
Reach inside your heart
To find the joy and love
To share with all mankind
For all we know
All we have
Since the 1960s the Generations of Love have been waking up to the spiritual reality of life on this planet. But during the past 5 decades the reactionary conservative forces in society have been fighting hard to hold onto the old structures of control, competition and capitalist greed. A science based, materialist, patriarchal culture has maintained dominance over the spiritual aspect of human nature – the urge for peace, for harmony, for love.
During those decades each generation has brought a new wave of awakeners to the divine power of love and the deeper energies moving through human consciousness. I was partially awoken during the early days of house music, when lsd and the inspirational lyrics of those inspired songs led me to open up my mystical inner vision. Then the prospect of dying with AIDS motivated me to search for answers and understanding of those visions, and of the reason for being alive in the first place. Now as the future of life on earth starts to look uncertain, it’s high time the awakeners to love took centre stage in the world’s affairs.
We are alive in the 21st century to create a heart -centred civilisation. The entire 20th century has been a battle on this planet: the forces of love and compassion versus the forces of hate and fear.
The KLF sang “What Time Is Love?” on the early 90s dance floors, now Billy Porter sings “Gotta let these children know what time it is” in his new song:

‘Some people criticize the way you live
But don’t you apologize, or dare submit
Baby, the children’s where the future is
See a change starts today, better wipe those tears away.
I lived a whole lotta life, I ain’t new to this
Lotta lows, lotta highs, I stay true to this
Take my hand, join the ride
You know you’ll have it figured out in time (Yeah)
See, I know times are hard (You’ll get through it, baby)
I mean it from the heart
You’re not losing the fight
Love will make it alright
‘Cause I’ve been there, done that
Worn that dress, so you know mama knows it best, I
Gotta let these children know what time it is
Gotta let these children know what time it is.’
Billy Porter is a RAINBOW MESSENGER, bringing joy, colour, love and HOPE to the world. It’s what queer people do.
