Gay And Proud

This song is by Berkeley Women's Music Collective and appears on the compilation Lesbian Concentrate (1977).

I was born a bastard
You know my mother she couldn't keep me
Sent me off to a foster home
Where they tried to teach me

That girls can't go climbing trees
Or playing with certain toys
Got to stay in dresses
Else they're called tomboys

Well I can sing it loud now
I can sing it loud now
Can sing it loud now
Gay and proud

When I got adopted
You know they sent me to a shrink
Couldn't understand why I cut my hair short
Why I didn't want to wear pink

As I grew bolder
Got to be a desperate situation
People coming up to me at school
Say 'You ought to get an operation'

Well I can sing it loud now
I can sing it loud now
Can sing it loud now
Gay and proud

When I was in my lonesome years
Kinda quiet intellectual
Womanfriend tried to bring me out
Had to hide when they cried 'homosexual'

Well I can sing it loud now
I can sing it loud now
Can sing it loud now
Gay and proud

I ain't sorry, I ain't sad
For all the years I've been had
Strutting 'round like a heavy-duty puff
Now I know we got to get tough

Well I can sing it loud now
I can sing it loud now
Can sing it loud now
Gay and proud

We women been waiting all our lives
For our sisters to be our lovers
Hey look around you now
Ain't you glad we finally found each other

Well I can sing it loud now
I am gay and proud
