Happy New Year!
If you're Gay or Trans or Bi,
You should not be dim or shy,
Live your life and have no fear --
Forge ahead throughout the year!
Happy New Year! is part of the poem series Felicitations by Felicia Nimue Ackerman. Ackerman is a professor of philosophy at Brown University and has had over 200 poems published in a wide range of places. We are lucky to get to have a few of them published right here at Options Magazine.
