…bear in mind the title of “Prince” could happen to anyone, regardless of whether you are a girl or a boy or a golden ager. You can be fat, fem butch or bitchy. You can be silly, sissy, swishy or a 93 LB. weakling. You can be a punk of colour, a punk of size or a punk of no-size but please leave your religious baggage outside the door. You cannot be straight-acting, straight swelling or straight walking, talking, or like that, OK?
