Newer version of the 6-colour pride flag with a 5-colour chevron on the left side, including trans colours and POC colours. I like this version.
TL;DR: Eminent rabbi from the 11th–12th century says be gay, do crime.
But once his eyes had done away with my heart, his hand fastened the yoke of my sin, and he looked for grievances against me. He raged and shouted in fury: ‘Enough! Leave me alone! Do not drive me to crime, do not lead me astray!’
Oh, do not be unrelenting in your anger, fawn. Show me the wonders of your love, my friend; kiss your friend and fulfil his desire. If you wish to let me live — give me life; but if you would kill — then kill me!
Why, why would they discourage me ? If there be any sin or guilt in being ravished by your beauty — let the Lord be my judge! Do not let your heart be swayed by the words of my tormentor, that obstinate man. Oh, come put me to the test!
He was lured and we went to his mother’s house. There he bent his back to my heavy yoke. Night and day I alone was with him. I took off his clothes and he took off mine, I sucked at his lips and he suckled me.
THE TREACHEROUS FAWN
by Rabbi Moses ibn Ezra (c. 1055–1138)
My heart’s desire and my eyes’ delight: the hart beside me and a cup in my right hand!
Many denounce me for loving, but I pay no heed. Come to me, fawn, and I shall vanquish them. Time will consume them and death will shepherd them away. Oh come to me, fawn, let me feast on the nectar of your lips until I am satisfied.
