It’s the 35-year anniversary of “True Colors”, the timeless classic by Cyndi Lauper.

For the LGBTQ+ community, this song epitomizes the culture to which the community aspires. One of inclusion and safety. To bring hope to the broken and downtrodden.

We have a long way to go on that front, especially with the virulent, right-wing turmoil in much of Western culture that has sadly infected some of our ranks as well.

Hopefully we can swing back toward the simple message of love in this little song.
