The Louisiana Social Pledge
We pledge our allegiance to Louisiana. We will embrace what makes us and our state unique. Louisiana will be recognized as a leader and innovator of the New South. Many great leaders of the future will come from this state. And we will show both the media and politicians that we are smarter than them. We will no longer have our resources exhausted and our people used and left behind. We will work hard and play hard. We will protect each other. We will support each other. We pledge that we will do whatever we can to get these things in motion right now. We will no longer wait for a path to be cleared for us. We will clear the path ourselves. And we ain’t giving up easily. We will socialize in the real world just as well as we do on the internet…in hopes to organize ourselves effectively.

I Ain’t Scared of a “Straight” Man (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)
If I, a man, feel like holding the hand of another man in public
Surely don’t think it’s to make you uncomfortable
Would it make you uncomfortable with a man and woman
Affection is Affection, what’s the difference?
If a group of cowardly men were to surround me
Foolishly showing their ignorance by calling me names,
With my arms folded, I will stand there with a slight grin
And say directly, “I ain’t scared of you, confused little boys.”
Should any man be so irrational enough to use violence
To intimidate me out of public view, back into a closet,
I would protect myself and my man with my brawn
For some people can’t be reasoned with logic or words
