T W O L O V E S is a poem written by Lord Alfred Douglas, who was a secret lover of Oscar Wilde.

This quote ‘the love that dare not speak it’s name’ was cited at Wilde’s trial for ‘gross indecency’ in 1895…

As the end of the poem reads:
What is thy name?’ He said, ‘My name is Love.’
Then straight the first did turn himself to me And cried, ‘He lieth, for his name is Shame,
But I am Love, and I was wont to be
Alone in this fair garden, till he came
Unasked by night; I am true Love, I fill
The hearts of boy and girl with mutual flame.’
Then sighing, said the other, ‘Have thy will,
I am the Love that dare not speak its name.’

It has always moved me, to think of generations gone by of LGBTQ+ that have been persecuted, and in many many countries across the globe still are. There is a way to go yet. Let’s keep loving and sharing the love towards our fellow humans, Love is Love is Love ❤️
