Academy of American Poets Celebrates Gay Pride

In celebration of gay pride, the Academy of American Poets' Poetry.org website offers a webpage full of rich resources for reading about the lives of gay poets, as well as reading poems about love written by LGBT poets.  Unimaginable, in my childhood or even young manhood, to come across such riches as these for gay human beings and those who want to understand the experience of gay persons, openly displayed by such a prestigious group.

We have come a long way towards humanity.  We still have far, far to go.
