Aretha partiu. Um voz única. A rainha. Aqui fica um dos belos poemas que cantou.

A song for you.

I’ve been so many places in my life and time
I’ve sung a lot of songs and I’ve made some bad rhyme
I’ve acted out my love on stages, with millions people watching me
Now we’re alone and now I’m singin’ this song to you
I love you in a place where there’s no space and time
I love you for my life, you are a friend of mine
And when my life is over, remember when we were together
We were alone and I was singin’ this song to you
You taught me precious secrets of the truth, withholdin’ nothin’
You came out in front and I was hide, hiding
But now I’m so much better, if my words don’t come together
Listen to the melody, because my love is in there hiding
I know your image of me is not what I hoped to be
I treated you unkindly baby, oh can’t you see?
There’s no one more important to me, please can’t you see through me?
Now we’re alone and I’m singin’ this song to you
Now we’re alone and I’m singin’ this song to you
Now we’re alone and I’m singin’ this song, I’m singin’ it to you
Yes I am, I’m singin’ to you, baby
Singin’ to you, baby, only you baby
Ohh yeah, I’m singin’ this song for you

Um interessante texto de abertura de uma reflexão geopolítica das questões LGBTI. Nos dias que vivemos parte desta reflexão é bastante provocante.

By Alex Cuthbert

Global attitudes towards the LGBT+ community vary widely. In some countries, employment protections, joint adoption, gay marriage and social acceptance are widespread. In others, socially conservative attitudes prevail, in legal, social and political contexts. In this blog post, I will explore how these variations occur, and the impacts of this on the global LGBT+ community. I aim to broadly analyse some of the major global trends in political attitudes towards LGBT+ rights, with a particular focus on laws around homosexuality and gay marriage, where the greatest developments have been made. I aim to answer the question through analysing nations and their political attitudes towards LGBT+ rights, as well as global patterns and individual examples (Ayoub, 2015). Historically homophobic laws have also existed in western countriesand certainly homophobic attitudes are not confined to the past (Bell, 1995). Homosexuality was illegal in England and Wales until 1967, and until the early 80’s in Scotland…
