- For Kenyans today, the issue of gay rights is really a non-issue.
- The only way I will rest in peace is if one day transgender people aren’t treated the way I was. They [should be] treated like humans, with valid feelings and human rights. Gender needs to be taught about in schools, the earlier the better. My death needs to mean something. My death needs to be counted in the number of transgender people who commit suicide this year…Fix society. Please.
- The Court is making the preposterous assumption that the People of the United States somehow silently redefined marriage in 1868 when they ratified the 14th Amendment.
- Thirty-five is half a life. I can't lose the other half. I've lost so much living as a shadow of a person.
- I want to thank the entire Rams organization and the city of St. Louis for giving me this tremendous opportunity and allowing me to show I can play at this level. I look forward to continuing to build on the progress I made here toward a long and successful career. The most worthwhile things in life rarely come easy, this is a lesson I've always known. The journey continues.
- I love the HRC. The initials are great.
- Cardinal Dolan, of course, has a very, very hard job: trying to hold up Catholic family values in sexually liberal New York City. I’m not saying New York is the Gay Mecca. But it’s at least Gay-rusalem.
- This is tough trying to figure which one of these women is lying. One of them has to be. So the Lieutenant Governor is blond, and the mayor is brunette. Is that relevant in determining which one of them's telling the truth? I don't know. Just asking. The Lieutenant Governor seems a little bit more at home with makeup than the mayor. Is there anything to learn from that? I'm just asking.
- The mayor of Sochi is now saying that there are no gay people in Sochi. So the only thing that is flaming over there now is the Olympic torch.
- This is for the 36 million people who have lost the battle to AIDS and to those of you out there who have ever felt injustice because of who you are or who you love. Tonight, I stand here in front of the world for you.
- If we took just five minutes to recognize each other’s beauty instead of attacking each other for our differences, that’s not hard. It’s really an easier way to live. And ultimately it saves lives. Then again, it can be the hardest thing. Because loving other people starts with loving ourselves and accepting ourselves.
- In an interview, former vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan said he does not have a racist bone in his body. However, he admitted he has three sexist bones and his spine is homophobic.
