Hello! As you may have noticed I am not in class this week because I am participating in a Model UN conference in NYC this week which also means that I don’t really have time to work on other things, that is why I had to do my found poem on a word document, copying and pasting screenshots haha
I decided to use the Paragraph 175, which is a part of the German criminal code the Nazi revised in 1935 that made illegal “a very broad range of behavior between men.” Here is a google doc I made with the paragraph 175, I encourage you all to have a look a it to see how crazy it was. https://docs.google.com/document/d/194P_vEVmlUgBGna3GFqPo6v8TogB01-WC9hzGoCqNGw/edit?usp=sharing
So, having that paragraph that basically made illegal, not only relationship between men, but also “inappropriate acts”, I decided to make a “love poem” somehow recognizing gay love, that, at the end, is human love.
Hope you like it! thank you guys!
