I Hope Our Next President is Queer

I hope our next president is queer

I hope she’s brown and Muslim and fat

I hope she’s Malala

I hope she’s loud

I hope the first gentleman is trans

I hope my whiteness takes a seat

I hope our next president was a child in foster care

I hope she dances burlesque

I hope she loves the world, I hope she loves her desk

I hope our next president is a pre-existing condition

I hope she breast feeds in public

I hope she’s uninterrupted

I hope my white sisters shut up and listen

I hope our next president is from Flint

Then maybe the water will run clear

I hope the voters show up this time

I hope our next president is queer

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
