    What a wonderful poem. I wish the sound was better. Any chance of getting a printed version? I would love to have one!


  5. Keanan

    That was awesome. And I would like to say, that I too appreciate femmes (I just could never be that articulate about it).

    One of my favorite pieces by Ivan! Second only to ‘a butch roadmap’.

    Can I say, I would like to say all of this, in my own words, from my own heart, all of this to all the beautiful, fantastic femme men out there.
    I know boys don’t get told enough that they can be beautiful and I know sometimes even the gay community can make femme men feel like they are failing at something because they are not what the tv tells you a man should be. But God, I love you. You are so beautiful I can barely stand it. I love your make up and your tight tops and your fluid hand gestures. I love your sensitivies and your vanities. I love it. Please don’t stop making my world so so beautiful.

    This is so, so wonderful. Its something that isn’t said enough and needs to be said more, and I so agree with Nick. Not enough femme males get told they’re beautiful – but you are, you really are.

    Also, the Toronto Maple Leafs comments made me laugh. xD

    In the past day I’ve watched and listened to all of Ivan’s stuff that is on the internet and it is all great. Awesome, deep and heartfelt storytelling with humor twisted in. I really want to get Ivan’s books and CDs.

    “Thankyou for wearing matching bar and panties. I do not know why this makes my life seem so perfect.” – LAUGH. OUT. LOUD.

    I love Ivan. Saw this months ago, and I couldn’t stop watching.
