LGBT Iranians Featured In Moving Visual Poem: "I Have Always Been Here"

"Hear my call, recognize me, I have always been here."

Posted on

I have always been here
In the black and white of stories
I have always been here
Here, in the empty frame of pictures

I have always been here
In the hidden closet of poetry
In the broken crystal of moments

I have always been here
Not in the pit stoned to death
Not on the gallows
Not in death
I have always been here, in life

Listen to the sound of my voice
Hear my call
Recognize me
I have always been here

You can also hear the poem in Persian. Below is the full english version:
