-That little girl whose mother is in the, um, "threesome." Why do you say she's confused about her gender? She seems perfectly normal to me.
-Mom, she's a boy.
-Oh. Well then, I'm not quite so worried about that revealing top. I was going to speak to her mother.

If all lesbians suddenly turned purple today, society would be surprised at the number of purple people in high places.
- Sidney Abbott & Barbara Love, Sappho was a right-on woman
Coming toward them, on the path, were two glittering, loud-talking fairies....Ida said, "I always feel so sorry
for people like that."
Ellis grinned. "Why should you feel sorry for them? They've got each other."

They keep saying "Marriage has been between a man and a woman for thousands of years." That's not an argument, that's a temper tantrum.

When Bush was elected last year, I saw one acquaintance remark that the gays were the Naderites of that election; they'd cost the Democrats victory, and they would have to carry that guilt for the next four years. And that was a clear sign to me that it's now OK to be anti-gay. The implication was that equality for homosexuals should only be asked for when it's convenient. You'd never hear that suggested about civil rights for any other minority, but for homosexuals the message is, be quiet, the heterosexals are voting. So there's the classic brand of bigots, who think homosexuality is a deviant sin, and there's the diet brand of bigots, who would like to see homosexuals taken down a peg or two, because dang, they're so in-your-face about their lack of equality. The main difference between the first brand and the second brand is that the second brand watch Queer Eye for the Straight Guy

Portrayals of queer people nowadays are like representations of the Middle East and India 100 years ago. We are the new Mysterious Orient, full of exotic dangers, and a hint of exotic sex. We've become the big backdrop which Western Civilization uses to project its own unspoken desires and fears. Given what Western Civilization did to India and the Middle East over the last 300 years, this does not bode well at all.

But the base philanderer
Ogled with another;
So, of course, to despite her,
I decided to transfer
Affections to her brother.

I discovered my own gayness, I realized it would make me an outsider in society. I began to identify with other groups of outsiders, people who had no control over their own lives. I identified with women in their struggles against oppression, with the working class in their struggles against exploitation and with the Third World in their struggles against imperialism and poverty.

I was never "anti-gay" but I didn't understand why a man would be attracted to another man. Then I saw Kiss of the Spider Woman. I thought, well, of course, who wouldn't be hot for Raúl Juliá?

People who don't believe in faeries aren't worth knowing.

Fear gay people — they might cause happiness.
- Anonymous anti-ex-gay protest sign, Tennessee, 2005
A son was home from college and tells his dad, "I think my roommate's becoming a queer!"
"What makes you think so?" asked the dad.
"Because he closes his eyes when I kiss him!"

Women and eating disorders have such a long history, but now I see it happening to gay men. And when it comes to anorexia, bulimia, body dysmorphia, gay men are far more worse than women. They take it way more seriously. "Why diet when you can take crystal meth?"
- Margaret Cho, Revolution
-I dunno. I mean, I've been really getting into this drag king stuff... and now I'm attracted to a trans man! What's the deal?! Am I a fag?
-Lois, you're just you. Since when are you so hung up on terminology?
-I know. What's my problem?
-Anyhow, Jerry likes guys. It's not like anything's gonna happen.
