winkt

Wenn die Liebe dir winkt, dann folge ihr, sind ihre Wege auch schwer und steil.
Und wenn ihre Flügel dich umhüllen, gib dich ihr hin, auch wenn das unterm Gefieder versteckte Schwert dich verwunden kann.
Und wenn sie zu dir spricht, glaube an sie, auch wenn ihre Stimme deine Träume zerschmettern kann wie der Nordwind den Garten verwüstet.

Every LGBTQ+ Person Should Read This
Chances are you don't even know that you are holy, or royal or magic, but you are. You are part of an adoptive family going back through every generation of human existence.

We redefined words like bear, butch, otter, queen and femme, and created new terms like drag queen, twink and genderqueer. But just because the words like homosexual, bisexual, transgender, intersex and asexual, have been created in the relatively recent past doesn’t mean they are anything new. Before we started using today’s terms, we were Winkte to the Ogala, A-go-kwe to the Chippewa, Ko'thlama to the Zuni, Machi to the Mapuchi, Tsecats to the Manghabei, Omasenge to the Ambo and Achnutschik to the Konyaga across the continents. While none of these terms identically mirror their more modern counterparts, all refer to some aspect of, or identity related to, same-gender love, same-sex sex or crossing genders.
