I’ve been on the London sex scene for 36 years:
long before the Age of the App I used to seek other queers
in Cruising Grounds from Hampstead to Clapham
Cottages from Wood Green to Balham;
Saunas when they were raided to when they were abundant,
to when they shrank away again;
Porn cinemas where straight men sucked cock;
Escort agencies and sex clubs,
Leather bars that have left us;
Underwear parties, piss parties and fist fuck fests:
the fact is SEX is something that gay men do best –
so why the fuck nowadays are so many men using meth?
Surely it’s lust that drives us, and the search for love:
which means companions, friends as well as partners along the way,
also brotherhood of spirit, communion of the flesh
delivered in the way queers do best.
Through body, mind and emotion we have all we need to access ecstasy’s ocean:
and, everyone knows,
chemical connections are bad for erections.
What are we doing, when we make love to a stranger?
Do we objectify a person or worship a god?
And when we hunt for prey, are we really praying?
Erotic acts of worship can wake up the soul
sex is a rite that can make us feel whole:
for union with another man is a way to recognise
the divine fire burning inside.
Throughout time, across cultures
the Phallus was revered
but under the Christians
its power was feared.
Sex for pleasure was repressed,
reproduction was pursued
to create soldiers and workers
serving the state;
and the holy sex priests of the old pagan days
were turned into objects of hate.
Gay Liberation is a sacred cause
love of the body as well as the soul –
all forms of love must be honoured
for humanity to be whole.
It’s time for the Queer Ones to remember our sacred roles.
Feminine men once served with the women
in the temples of the Goddess;
masculine men who loved men served the war gods and Apollo,
but the holiest of all were the trans priestesses
who served the Great Mother through the aeons
until the men of the Cross
imposed the deadliest of creeds,
in the name of love but in truth for greed.
Queer rituals united the spirit and the flesh
brought the divine to earth, in all its chaos, majesty and mystery,
through the inner dance of the genders opened the gates to transcendence,
but the Queer Holy Ones were written out of history.
Trans Liberation is the Emergence of the Soul –
for God is Love and Love is calling:
the union of female and male, spirit and flesh,
brings heaven to earth, in the ways Queers do best.
Women’s spiritual power so long forced to submit
to the power of the sword and men’s twisted words,
love between women creates deep bonds
and unites the worlds.
The sacred spirit of man on man love must be freed:
for loving brotherhood builds community, respect, bonds that last,
but as Plato identified in the distant past –
it does not suit the needs of tyrannical powers
to encourage men to love men,
for how would they be persuaded to fight each other then?
IN CELTIC EUROPE SAME SEX LOVE WAS CELEBRATED,
IN ANCIENT GREECE IT WAS VENERATED!
IN MILITARISTIC ROME IT BECAME A POWER GAME –
UNDER THE CHRISTIAN EMPIRE THIS SACRED LOVE WAS FORCED TO FEEL SHAME.
BUT AS EUROPEANS EXPLORED THE EARTH
THEY FOUND SAME SEX LOVE WAS HELD IN GREAT WORTH
IN MANY CULTURES AS IT ONCE WAS AT HOME –
UNTIL THE CHRISTIAN CREED UNITED WITH THE EMPIRE OF ROME.
THESE EUROPEANS SPREAD THEIR BARBAROUS BELIEFS,
EXECUTED SHAMANS FOR BEING SODOMITES,
REPRESSED SAME-SEX SEXUALITY AND GENDERVARIANT EXPRESSION
BUT NOW MOTHER EARTH IS TEACHING THESE MEN A TOUGH LESSON:
YOU DON’T MESS WITH HER PRIESTS AND EXPECT NATURE TO BE AT PEACE.
NATURE IS FURIOUS, WILD AND MAKING HER STAND
YET AT A DEEP DEEP LEVEL THESE TIMES WERE LONG PLANNED:
HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS HAS TO SHIFT
TO BRING THE LONG AWAITED UPLIFT
INTO HIGHER DIMENSIONS WHERE LIFE IS ONE
AND WE REMEMBER THE TRUTH OF THIS JOURNEY WE’RE ON.
NATURE’S PRIESTS PLAY A PART IN THIS SCHEME:
WHEN WE RECONNECT HUMANITY’S HEARTS AND BODIES TO NATURE
WE’LL AWAKEN FROM THE PISCEAN DREAM
INTO AQUARIAN LIGHT, AWARENESS AND UNITY
AND RISE WITH PRIDE INTO POWER
AS A GLOBAL QUEER SPIRITED COMMUNITY.
It’s in the Earth and in the Body that the God/Goddess live:
By awakening our sexuality, our hearts, minds and souls
We Each Play A Part In The CONSCIOUSNESS SHIFT.
This is the second SEXUAL REVOLUTION.
