lyrics

Welcome to the annual fundraising dinner for the Human Rights Champagne Fund, formal dress required of course -- we wouldn’t want the riff-raff getting in, am I right? Come see all the equality your precious pink dollars have bought this year!

Things are looking up for white, upper middle class gays and lesbians; you can have a destination wedding or even adopt a brown baby! Economic colonialism is a myth, right? We’re all just trying to have fun here!

We’ll also conveniently forget that about 40% of homeless youth are LGBTQ-identified, ‘cause listen, we’ve worked hard, we deserve a rest! Can’t we just wait for the trickle down? Now where’s my martini?

No HRC, your marriage ain’t for me
and I’m so tired of your homonormativity
where’s all your cash when queer kids get bashed?
Gentrifying neighborhoods, looking pretty on my TV

You act like gay marriage is the only oppression left
Like once we get that, oh it’ll be game and set
you say you’re fighting the good fight
to get us equal rights
but people are on the streets
and dying every single night
