Lgbt quotes by Darnell Lamont Walker
#7. I don't know any homophobic people. That suggests fear.
The people I know who hate gay folks are:
illiterate, nescient, uneducated, uninstructed, unlearned, unschooled, untaught, backward, benighted, primitive, unenlightened, blockheaded, dense, doltish, hebetudinous, obtuse, stupid, thickheaded, thick-witted
But not homophobic. #Quote by Darnell Lamont Walker
Lgbt quotes by David Leavitt
#8. I watched that film the other night and it embarrassed me. So dated, so coy, so evasively homosexual only a fellow homosexual might recognize the subtext. #Quote by David Leavitt
Lgbt quotes by Libba Bray
#9. My whole life I've been ordered about. Now I shall give the orders." I've never seen Felicity so wounded. "Not me," she says. "I never ordered you about." "Oh, Fee." The old Pippa surfaces for just a moment, hopeful and childlike. She pulls Felicity to her. Something I cannot name passes between them, and then Pip's lips are on Fee's in a deep kiss, as if they feed on one another, their fingers entwined in each other's hair. And suddenly, I understand what I must have always known about them - the private talks, the close embraces, the tenderness of their friendship. A blush spreads across my neck at the thought. How could I not have seen it before? #Quote by Libba Bray

Lgbt quotes by Elaine White
#14. Konnor bit his lip and arched into his touch, opening his eyes to his words.
"No matter how cruel I am to you, resisting what's between us, you always know when I need you the most," he explained quietly. "I needed you desperately and you gave me the most incredible pleasure. And when I tried to hide from you ... when I thought you didn't want me ... you showed me how wrong I was."
Grayson smiled as Konnor grasped his hair and dragged him down into a scorching kiss. He was more than happy to comply with his demands, since he wanted nothing more than to fade into him and make them one person. #Quote by Elaine White
Lgbt quotes by Faiqa Mansab
#15. This cage of bones and flesh that holds me prisoner... makes a mockery of me and my
desires. How can anyone be held responsible for body they're born with ? #Quote by Faiqa Mansab
Lgbt quotes by Saleem Haddad
#16. But in the midst of this decaying, burning city, there are pockets of hope. It can be found in the tiny dark rooms in underground bars, where women with short hair cheer on men in dresses. It can be felt in abandoned cinemas where anonymous strangers fall in love if only for a few moments, and in the living rooms where families crowd around, drinking sweet black tea and Skyping their homesick relatives so that together they can watch the long, rambling talk shows that go on all night. #Quote by Saleem Haddad
Lgbt quotes by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
#17. I prayed that the Lord would help me to see my life from his point of view. It was then that I noticed it: as I looked around my house, I had dozens of PRIDE posters, T-shirts, coffee mugs. The flag that waved in the breeze at my porch was a PRIDE flag. Pride had become my best friend. In the LGBT world, we defined pride as a healthy self-esteem. But something started to crack a little and I dared to just ask the question: was I domesticating a tiger? #Quote by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
Lgbt quotes by Mark Takano
#18. I think it is important for someone like me to not run away from who I am but embrace it. LGBT people across the country need to know they have a friend in Congress. #Quote by Mark Takano

#19. James spoke first. "Hey."
God. One word, and my cheeks heated. It might have helped if he hadn't looked like he wanted to drag me across the table and kiss the hell out of me. How had this become my life? Not that I was complaining. Really, really not complaining. #Quote by Jennifer Cosgrove
Lgbt quotes by Mark Takano
#20. I hope that by just being a competent member and expressing informed views on issues that aren't related to issues of LGBT equality, Republicans see me as a general asset. #Quote by Mark Takano
Lgbt quotes by C. Kennedy
#21. It is strange ... the reasons one feels he doesn't deserve things. #Quote by C. Kennedy
Lgbt quotes by Casey McQuiston
#22. He's not afraid of anything he feels. He's not afraid of saying it. He's only afraid of what happens when he does. #Quote by Casey McQuiston
Lgbt quotes by Huston Piner
#23. At Chadham High, the safest place to be gay was in the closet. #Quote by Huston Piner
Lgbt quotes by Sara Farizan
#24. No. I don´t think it does go away. I know it won´t for me. I will keep busy. I will distract myself. I will eventually have days when I don´t have to remind myself to breathe. I know Nasrin will exist, maybe even be happy, and I will be okay. I ´ll bury my love, but it will never really go away. #Quote by Sara Farizan
Lgbt quotes by Leah Raeder
#25. If two people could make each other smile and laugh and forget all the pain and darkness in the world for a moment, why should we feel ashamed of it? #Quote by Leah Raeder
Lgbt quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Lgbt quotes by Johnny Weir
#30. I'm hoping my presence alone in Russia will be a show of strength for the Russian LGBT community, #Quote by Johnny Weir
Lgbt quotes by Quentin R. Bufogle
#31. The Catholic Church standing in "solidarity" with members of the LGBT community while condemning their behavior as "sinful" is a little like attempting to stand with two feet in one shoe. "Love the sinner, hate the sin" sounds really high-minded until you realize the only sin committed was being born different. #Quote by Quentin R. Bufogle
Lgbt quotes by Paul Tremblay
#32. Her dads warned her that some people won't understand their family and might say ignorant (their word) and hurtful things to her and it might not be their fault because of what they've been taught by other ignorant people with too much hate in their hearts, and, yes, it was very sad. Wen assumed they were talking about the same bad or stranger-danger people that hide in the city and want to take her away, but the more they talked to her about what Scott had said and why others might say things like that, too, the more it seemed like they were talking about everyday kind of people. Weren't the three of them everyday kind of people? She pretended to understand for her dads' sake, but she didn't and still doesn't. Why do she and her family need to be understood or explained to anyone else? #Quote by Paul Tremblay
Lgbt quotes by Rachel Manija Brown
#33. Everyone's got their own way of loving. There's no such thing as 'supposed to #Quote by Rachel Manija Brown
Lgbt quotes by Cordelia Fine
#34. Our sexuality is body, culture, age, learning, habit, fantasies, worries, passions, and the relationships in which all these elements combine. That's why sexuality can change with age, partner, experience, emotions, and sense of perspective. #Quote by Cordelia Fine
Lgbt quotes by Anthony Foxx
#35. I was the first mayor to even go meet with the LGBT community. #Quote by Anthony Foxx
Lgbt quotes by Steven Spielberg
#36. I basically took something that was extremely erotic and very intentional, and I reduced it to a simple kiss. I got a lot of criticism for that. #Quote by Steven Spielberg
Lgbt quotes by T.J. Klune
#37. He hesitates, then says, "You don't think Otter ... gets offended by what I say?" He begins to speak faster. "I mean, I don't care who Otter sleeps with. I don't care that he's a fa- gay. I don't care that he's gay. Why would I ?" He grins thinly. "He's my brother. You don't turn away from someone like him just because he likes sick instead if the good stuff. #Quote by T.J. Klune
Lgbt quotes by Demi Lovato
#38. I'm an American for marriage equality. I believe that love comes in all different shapes, sizes, and colors. So whether you're LGBT or straight, your love is valid, beautiful, and an incredible gift. #Quote by Demi Lovato
Lgbt quotes by Andrew Holleran
#39. We lived only to dance. What was the true characteristic of a queen, I wondered later on; and you could argue that forever. "What do we all have in common in this group?" I once asked a friend seriously, when it occurred to me how slender, how immaterial, how ephemeral the bond was that joined us; and he responded, "We all have lips." Perhaps that is what we all had in common: no one was allowed to be serious, except about the importance of music, the glory of faces seen in the crowd. We had our songs, we had our faces! We had our web belts and painter's jeans, our dyed tank tops and haircuts, the plaid shirts, bomber jackets, jungle fatigues, the all-important shoes. #Quote by Andrew Holleran
Lgbt quotes by E.M. Hamill
#40. Male? female? both?
No one's ever asked me that question, I see myself as neither. I'm something different all together. #Quote by E.M. Hamill
Lgbt quotes by Christina Lauren
#41. Writing is a tie - however tenuous - to him. #Quote by Christina Lauren
Lgbt quotes by J.M. Colail
#42. Good luck on your test."
"I'm gonna ace it for sure!" I said, rolling to Wesley's side of the
bed and pulling the sheet up.
"Don't I know it," he smiled, and then slapped the doorframe. "Oh
yeah. If Gus calls, just tell him I was balls-deep in your ass and that I'm
on my way now. #Quote by J.M. Colail
Lgbt quotes by Lilyan Brock
#43. There was no other love that could compare with the love of woman for woman. #Quote by Lilyan Brock
Lgbt quotes by Reese Witherspoon
#44. I mean, really: He called me 33 percent lesbian, which was a gross underestimation of my lesbian-ness. #Quote by Reese Witherspoon
Lgbt quotes by Kenneth Logan
#45. Dude," he said instead, "I'm flattered as hell." And then he kicked my foot, lightly, twice. He was smiling.
He couldn't see the chasm that had opened behind my ribs. #Quote by Kenneth Logan
Lgbt quotes by Huston Piner
#46. Reputations seldom deliver on promises of happiness. #Quote by Huston Piner
Lgbt quotes by Julie Buxbaum
#47. I mean , I never even had to really come out to my parents. They always knew, and it was always okay. Or not even okay, better than that. Not something that had to be evaluated at all. It just was. Like having brown hair. #Quote by Julie Buxbaum
Lgbt quotes by Katy Perry
#48. NEW YORK! I [love] U! You're OFFICIALLY the coolest place on the planet! #Quote by Katy Perry
Lgbt quotes by Hannah Moskowitz
#49. I go both ways", I say, "You know that whole thing about there being a misconception about bisexuals being sluts. Like everyone thinks that just because we're into both we're into everybody?" ... "Well I'm actually kind of a slut. I'm awesome for the community, obviously #Quote by Hannah Moskowitz
Lgbt quotes by Valentina C. Brin
#50. I'll teach you not to look at me like that," Charles snarled through his hair before pushing it off his face. "Do you think I didn't notice? The way you look at me when you think I'm not watching?"
Oh, God!
He had to get out of there. Slip out of his grip as soon as possible, before he lost control of his body. He was already feeling it in his groin - the fire Rochester had lit was already making his balls throb.
His reply was desperate, a whisper, a tiny, brazen lie: "You're mistaken."
"Oh, that's how it is, then? You have the nerve to tell me it's not true?" The next moment he felt something firm pressing against his buttocks. Something hot and shameless. Charles's rock-hard erection.
Dorian's lips parted in a surprised moan. The air escaped his lungs and treacherous arousal rose all the way to his throat, breaking his voice and his willpower.
"No…" I don't know. "I didn't mean to. I wasn't spying on you on purpose."
"But you did. You always do. #Quote by Valentina C. Brin
Lgbt quotes by J. Richard Singleton
#51. If there's one thing I know about women, it's that they have vaginas. #Quote by J. Richard Singleton
Lgbt quotes by Myke Cole
#52. There are those who wish to possess love utterly, to own it not just for themselves, but for all. Do you know how they possess it, Heloise? They own it by defining it. They say 'love is this' and 'love is that' and when others say it is something else, they imprison them, or flog them. Sometimes they kill them. My love was a thing outside the circle they had drawn. #Quote by Myke Cole
Lgbt quotes by Andrew Holleran
#53. Love is a career with its own stages, rewards, and failures ... a vocation as concrete as a calling in the Church, worth giving a lifetime to. #Quote by Andrew Holleran
Lgbt quotes by Chelsea Handler
#54. I probably do the most for the gay and lesbian community, or LGBT, but I don't have one that I focus on. I just try and kind of do a lot for different charities. #Quote by Chelsea Handler
Lgbt quotes by Grace Curley
#55. When he ran to him, his strong arms caged around him and his sun-streaked skin burned under his fingers. He ignored the burning. The soft mumble on his neck told him that he understood, that he loved him. He dared to kiss the sunlight and it kissed him back. #Quote by Grace Curley
Lgbt quotes by Julian Winters
#56. To every LGBTQIA+ person who has questioned their place in life: You're strong. You're important. You're a lion. Let the world hear you roar. #Quote by Julian Winters
Lgbt quotes by Paul Monette
#57. Self pity becomes your oxygen. But you learned to breathe it without a gasp. So, nobody even notices you're hurting. #Quote by Paul Monette
Lgbt quotes by Andrew Holleran
#58. Now of all the bonds between homosexual friends, none was greater than that between friends who danced together. The friend you danced with, when you had no lover, was the most important person in your life; and for people who went without lovers for years, that was all they had. #Quote by Andrew Holleran
Lgbt quotes by E.M. Forster
#59. The second dream is more difficult to convey. Nothing happened. He scarcely saw a face, scarcely heard a voice say, "That is your friend," and then it was over, having filled him with beauty and taught him tenderness. He could die for such a friend, he would allow such a friend to die for him; they would make any sacrifice for each other, and count the world nothing, neither death nor distance nor crossness could part them, because "this is my friend. #Quote by E.M. Forster
Lgbt quotes by Chaz Bono
#60. I've been an activist in the LGBT community for a long time. I think nothing's changed, I'm just a little bit more focused on the 'T' now than I was on the 'L' or the 'G.' #Quote by Chaz Bono
Lgbt quotes by Julia Penelope
#61. As for us, we saw the police as a natural catastrophe - like floods, fires, earthquakes. There was nothing you could do about these things except to try and escape them. We had no analysis, no understanding that society could be changed. We simply tried to survive, as ourselves, as kamp girls, natural rebels. We did not feel that the police might not be entitled to hunt us, but accepted them as inevitable.

I was beaten up for suggesting that a woman ask for a lawyer. It was seem as a stupid - even dangerous - suggestion. Fighting back with threats of lawyers would only make the police even angrier at us. But part of me felt that what was happening was unfair and unjust, though I had no idea how things could ever be different.

Melbourne and Adelaide were exactly the same. The public lesbian scene was dangerous and difficult. There were many other New Zealand lesbians around, too. In spite of everything, I loved it. The "mateship" was amazing and close, important enough for any risk. And the freedom to be ourselves, to be real, to be queer, affirmed us.

There were private, closeted scenes too, but they were hard to find and cliquey. They were fearful of being "sprung" by kamps who were too obvious. They were mainly older middle-class women. I knew some of them, learnt many things from them - like how to behave in a nice restaurant if you are taken to dinner. But they too had no sense of anything being able to change - except for the one str #Quote by Julia Penelope
Lgbt quotes by Gene Robinson
#62. Jesus was consistently on the side of those who were outcast by society and bore the unfair burden of disdain, discrimination, and prejudice. It is likely that he would look at modern-day lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and hold real sympathy for them and their plight. He would have understood the implications of a system set up to benefit the heterosexual majority over the homosexual minority. It is hard to imagine Jesus joining in the wholesale discrimination against LGBT people. Isn't it logical that he would be sympathetic to young gay teens who take their own lives rather than live with the stigma attached to their sexual orientation? Would he not be found speaking a word of support, encouragement, and hope to them? Would he not be seeking a change in the hearts of those who treat them as outcasts? #Quote by Gene Robinson
Lgbt quotes by Rie Warren
#63. My latest battle had nothing to do with The Company, the rebels, or any other faction. It was out-and-out warfare between my head and my heart. Keeping it cool during daylight, versus nighttime, when I unleashed my passion for him ... Turned out the Wilderness was a lot more hostile than me. #Quote by Rie Warren
Lgbt quotes by Mary Renault
#64. I'm not prepared to accept a standard which puts the whole of my emotional life on the plane of immorality. #Quote by Mary Renault
Lgbt quotes by Jill Stein
#65. While the President [Barack Obama] did a good thing when he said he personally supported equal marriage, he then quickly backed away and said that he wasn't going to do anything about it - that it was a state matter, and that he wasn't going to interfere, as opposed to being than being a real advocate for equality across the board in marriage. He also, I think two weeks prior to that statement, refused to sign an executive order to establish equal rights in the workplace for the LGBT community. #Quote by Jill Stein
Lgbt quotes by Tabatha Coffey
#66. I'm really proud that the LGBT community has gotten behind me because, as I said, I am part of the community, so I do as much as I possibly can for our community and for our rights, so it's nice that everyone is supporting me as well. #Quote by Tabatha Coffey
Lgbt quotes by Jennifer Cosgrove
#67. All I know is you missed out. You missed out on knowing someone who's funny, and kind, and-" He looked back at me, squeezing my hand. "-the best person I've ever met. #Quote by Jennifer Cosgrove
Lgbt quotes by Jennifer Cosgrove
#68. I looked up , surprised, and his face was soft, questioning. I didn't know the answet. I didn't even know the question. #Quote by Jennifer Cosgrove
Lgbt quotes by Andrew Holleran
#69. But Malone was thinking now and as he watched the men lighting cigarettes for each other in the dark, having sex beneath the trees, he turned to his friend and said in a wondering voice: Isn't it strange that when we fall in love, this great dream we have, this extraordinary disease, the only thing in which either one of us is interested, it's inevitably with some perfectly ordinary drip who for some reason we cannot define is the magic bearer, the magician, the one who brings all this to us. Why? #Quote by Andrew Holleran
Lgbt quotes by Derek Jarman
#70. Understand that sexuality is as wide as the sea. Understand that your morality is not law. Understand that we are you. Understand that if we decide to have sex whether safe, safer, or unsafe, it is our decision and you have no rights in our lovemaking. #Quote by Derek Jarman
Lgbt quotes by DaShanne Stokes
#71. Tolerance of intolerance enables oppression. #Quote by DaShanne Stokes
Lgbt quotes by Elaine White
#72. He was getting undressed and it snapped something inside of him that had been drawing taut, ready to break for months.
"I'm hungry, Bruno," he said, in a soft voice, as he removed the shirt from his broad shoulders, revealing a perfect sight of smooth dark skin. "I can't wait for dinner," he continued, with a smile.
When he put his hands to the fastening of his trousers, Bruno let out a sigh and put the take out menus on the counter. He couldn't look at him, because he knew Lyon was trying to seduce him on purpose. He didn't want to talk or hear him out or spend time with him that didn't end with an orgasm.
"I can't do this anymore," Bruno confessed, quietly. #Quote by Elaine White
Lgbt quotes by Suzanne Brockmann
#73. I care a great deal about LGBT U.S. servicemen and women being able to serve openly and honestly. Since early in my career, I've included realistic LGBT characters in my books. The idea that a gay Navy SEAL had to hide who he was in order to serve was a terrible one - and I made sure my readers knew that! #Quote by Suzanne Brockmann
Lgbt quotes by Simone Elkeles
#74. This is a team of gay dudes, isn't it?
What gave it away? The pink shirts, or half our team drooling over you? #Quote by Simone Elkeles
Lgbt quotes by Hillary Clinton
#75. Violence toward women isn't cultural; it's criminal. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Lgbt quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#76. True same-sex love is trillions of times stronger than homophobia. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Lgbt quotes by Oliver Markus Malloy
#77. Wanna know how I know I'm straight? On a 3 week road trip through Scotland right after high school, my best friend (gayyy!) and I slept in the same bed at quaint little B&Bs every night. And nothing ever happened in bed between us, except for the occasional fart. If I was gay, I would have totally fucked the shit out of his cute little gay ass. #Quote by Oliver Markus Malloy
Lgbt quotes by Violet Trefusis
#78. How I adore you and want you. You can't know how much ... I love belonging to you
I glory in it, that you alone have bent me to your will, shattered my self-possession, robbed me of my mystery, and made me yours, so that away from you I am nothing but a useless puppet, an empty husk. #Quote by Violet Trefusis
Lgbt quotes by Cassandra Clare
#79. I do not have to be only one thing, Anna thought. I can choose what suits me when it suits me. The trousers and jacket do not make me a man, and the necklace does not make me a woman. They are only what makes me feel beautiful and powerful in this moment. I am exactly as I choose to be. I am a Shadowhunter who wears gorgeous suits and a legendary pendant. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Lgbt quotes by Cheryl B. Evans
#80. Transgender women do not think of themselves as men wearing women's clothing, they ARE women. #Quote by Cheryl B. Evans
Lgbt quotes by Vera Whisman
#81. [Two respondents] minimized the assimilationist implications of the dominant account; Russ Silver rejects the idea entirely.
I have no interest in being accepted. I consider this system corrupt, and I don't want to be accepted by it. We're in this together. Faggots, junkies, women, blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans, Asians, don't you see it? Don't you see that our white male government doesn't care about us? When I say this it shocks coat-and-tie lesbians and gay men everywhere. Well, I'm sorry, folks; if you had AIDS you would know what I know: The government doesn't give a goddamn cent for a faggot's life. #Quote by Vera Whisman
Lgbt quotes by David Levithan
#82. I hate that would. Straight. At the very least, those of us who are nonstraight should get to be called curvy. Or scenic. Actually, I like that: 'Do you think she's straight?' 'Oh no. She's scenic. #Quote by David Levithan
Lgbt quotes by Julio Alexi Genao
#83. The only thing worse than a bigot is an "ally" who can't stop congratulating themselves on their enlightenment. #Quote by Julio Alexi Genao
Lgbt quotes by Tim Gunn
#84. From my own experience, there are so many people who believe that the individual can change. The individual doesn't have to be LGBT. #Quote by Tim Gunn
Lgbt quotes by Lillian Faderman
#85. To learn of the existence of other lesbians through the media, no matter how unfortunate those characters were, must have been reassuring to women who loved other women. #Quote by Lillian Faderman
Lgbt quotes by Lea Salonga
#86. I have a half-brother who is very, very, very gay, many cousins, best friends who are all members of the LGBT community, and for me to not say anything would be hypocritical. There is a lot of prejudice. People think it is abnormal. No, it's just another normal. #Quote by Lea Salonga

Lgbt quotes by Janet Mock

Lgbt quotes by Pedro Almodovar
#89. To Bette Davis, Gena Rowlands, Romy Schneider ... To all actresses who have played actresses, to all women who act, to all men who act and become women, to all the people who want to be mothers. To my mother.
- Dedication, Todo Sobre Mi Madre #Quote by Pedro Almodovar
Lgbt quotes by Cassandra Duffy
#90. The beauty of standing up for your rights is others will see you standing and stand up as well. #Quote by Cassandra Duffy
Lgbt quotes by James H. Cone
#91. Patrick Cheng's Radical Love is not only an excellent introduction to LGBT theology but an important contribution to the discipline of theology and the life of the church. It is a must read for anyone who cares about the health of the church and theology today. #Quote by James H. Cone
Lgbt quotes by David Levithan
#92. People like to say being gay isn't like skin color, isn't anything physical. They tell us we always have the option of hiding.
But if that's true, why do they always find us? #Quote by David Levithan
Lgbt quotes by Andrew Holleran
#93. I can't help its being gay. I have been a full-time fag for the past five years, I realized the other day. Everyone I know is gay, everything I do is gay, all my fantasies are gay, I am what Gus called those people we used to see in the discos, bars, baths, all the time - remember? Those people we used to see EVERYWHERE, every time we went out, so that you wanted to call the police and have them arrested? - I am a doomed queen.
I would LIKE to be a happily married attorney with a house in the suburbs, 2.6 kids, and a station wagon, in which we would drive every summer to see the Grand Canyon, but I'm not! I am completely, hopelessly gay! #Quote by Andrew Holleran
Lgbt quotes by Cassandra  Barnes
#94. Then, she stepped hard on something soft.
"Ouch!" exclaimed an urgent, musical voice behind her followed by another blast of that scent. That voice rang out in the night like a small bell. Damn, thought Carmen. These late-night stragglers always show up just as I am closing!
"We're closed," she commented impatiently, not even bothering to turn around. "I can't get you anything, my cash register is empty. And, I definitely can't get you any gasoline. The pumps are shut down."
"You're on my foot!" said the small, feminine voice again, protesting more loudly. "Get off!" The girl laughed. The street lights came on, as if the pressure of stepping on this person's foot had turned them on. Carmen laughed at the synchronicity. She felt a small hand on her waist as she moved her foot off the soft place it had landed. It had been years since she had felt a woman's touch.
The feminine voice said quietly, "That hurt."
Carmen whirled around to face the girl she had stepped on, and almost lost her balance. Her eyes met the huge violet eyes of the most beautiful country girl she had ever seen standing directly behind her. Obviously, she had stepped on her. She apologized until she was speechless. Then, she coughed and indicated her truck.
The girl had straight, healthy blue hair, delicately shaved over one ear and well-done light makeup with a few rhinestone studs in her ears and nose. Carmen had sucked her breath in audibly at the girl's appearance. This dimin #Quote by Cassandra Barnes

Lgbt quotes by Alycia Debnam Carey
#96. I was on Instagram or something and I checked my tagged photos, and I realized that suddenly they were all LGBT artwork. I was like, "Oh, my god!" I had no idea. It was the first time I realized I was a figure for that community. #Quote by Alycia Debnam Carey

Lgbt quotes by John Colapinto
#98. You can go to thousand schools, and it's always the same. Because the standard rule of thumb is: There's the girls over here, and there's the boys over there. Separated. Which direction [do I go]? #Quote by John Colapinto
Lgbt quotes by Hillary Clinton
#99. LGBT Americans are our colleagues, our teachers, our soldiers, our friends, our loved ones, and they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship. That includes marriage. I support it personally, and as a matter of policy and law. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Lgbt quotes by DaShanne Stokes
#100. Freedom means equality. If you don't believe in equality for all, you don't believe in freedom. #Quote by DaShanne Stokes
Lgbt quotes by Jackie Haze
#101. Moreover, we were to each other aspects of a dream unrealized. I emblemized the excitement of freedom, a life untethered by the confines of constructs. She illustrated a sense of belonging, of ongoing laughter in the face of those constructs, a true lifeline within the walking dead. We were standing in different places, yet the same, seeing within each other a sense of truth within the lies, a radiant light that illuminated the dark. #Quote by Jackie Haze

#102. Fear is a hurdle that stops the expression #Quote by Andy Lindley
Lgbt quotes by Diriye Osman
#103. In the Somali culture many things go unsaid: how we love, who we love and why we love that way. I don't know why Suldana loves the way she does. I don't know why she loves who she does. But I do know that by respecting her privacy I am letting her dream in a way that my generation was not capable of. I'm letting her reach for something neither one of us can articulate. #Quote by Diriye Osman
Lgbt quotes by Richard Bowes
#104. Writing is the place where I can be as bold and compassionate and wise as I choose. #Quote by Richard Bowes
Lgbt quotes by Otessa Marie Ghadar
#105. It is immensely gratifying to hear from fans from around the world where being a gay or lesbian teen, having feelings for someone of your own gender is simply not acceptable. We noticed that our show fills a huge void for large audiences in many different countries. That's why our choice of format for the show, the web series, is such a fortunate one as it allows viewers in those countries to feel acknowledged. While the series is not exclusively dealing with gay and lesbian issues, the fact that we don't sanitize it gives us truly global appeal, especially with the gay and lesbian community. In fact, demand is such that we are subtitling the show in French and perhaps other languages to even better reach those audiences. #Quote by Otessa Marie Ghadar
Lgbt quotes by Vito Russo
#106. American society has willfully deleted the fact of homosexual behavior from its mind, laundering things as they come along, in order to maintain a more comfortable illusion. The censors removed it; the critics said, "Well, look! It isn't there"; and anyone who still saw it was labeled a pervert #Quote by Vito Russo
Lgbt quotes by Harvey Fierstein
#107. There are easier things in life than being a drag queen. But I ain't got no choice. Try as I may, I just can't walk in flats. #Quote by Harvey Fierstein
Lgbt quotes by Kate Bornstein S. Bear Bergman
#108. I know what I am. I know that I've chosen to identify as a transgender woman, and that I am - by and large - happy with where I am in this world. I'm far from perfect, and I could give you a list as long as my arms of the things I'd love to change. Nevertheless, I am still here, and I am still me, and no one can change that without my permission.
-Gwendolyn Ann Smith, We're All Someone's Freak #Quote by Kate Bornstein S. Bear Bergman

Lgbt quotes by Jennifer Cosgrove
#110. He reached for the popcorn, and his arm brushed against mine. It was was if sparks had lit up the theater. I tried not to react, especially since I was fairly centain I was the only one feeling it. #Quote by Jennifer Cosgrove
Lgbt quotes by David Wojnarowicz
#111. In loving him, I saw a cigarette between the fingers of a hand, smoke blowing backwards into the room and sputtering planes diving low through the clouds. In loving him, I saw men encouraging each other to lay down their arms. In loving him, I saw small-town laborers creating excavations that other men spend their lives trying to fill. In loving him, I saw moving films of stone buildings; I saw a hand in prison dragging snow in from the sill. In loving him, I saw great houses being erected that would soon slide into the waiting and stirring seas. I saw him freeing me from the silences of the interior life. #Quote by David Wojnarowicz
Lgbt quotes by Nelson Mandela
#112. Where you stand depends on where you sit. #Quote by Nelson Mandela
Lgbt quotes by Joseph Hansen
#113. And you never even reported it. You should have reported it. I could have took fingerprints. I'd love to lock up them skinheads."
"What I'm reporting is the gun, my Sig Sauer." Dave said. "Hetzel will have it. I want it back."
"What did it cost you?" Rose said.
"That's not the point," Dave said. "It's the only gun I ever owned. I'm against guns. They give too many people power who have no right to it. Guns cancel out intelligence, reason, decency, civility, and put terror in their place. I got along without a gun most of my working life. But a man can't buck the odds forever. About five years back I bought the Sig Sauer. I'm used to it. And I don't know that I'm morally prepared to buy another one. #Quote by Joseph Hansen
Lgbt quotes by Ann Bannon
#114. Maybe I grew up too fast, maybe that's my trouble. I feel so lost out here ... hung up between two worlds; half-kid and half-adult, half-boy and half-girl. And sometimes it seems like I get the dirty side of both. #Quote by Ann Bannon

Lgbt quotes by K.S. Marsden
#116. Hey, maybe you could invite the new guy to your party." Sarah suggested.

Mark rolled his eyes. "Sure, I'll just ask the good-looking stranger if he wants to come round to my Nanna'a and dance naked around a fire." Mark was suddenly aware of the engulfing silence.

"Who'll be naked doing what now? #Quote by K.S. Marsden
Lgbt quotes by Alfred Kinsey

Lgbt quotes by Elaine White
#118. You let this become a mess," he cursed, as though he'd walked up to Tam and asked him to be drop dead gorgeous and vulnerable, just so that he would have his first guy crush.
"I didn't let anything happen. I just ... felt it. I think he feels it too," he argued, trying to talk sense into him. Why was this a bad thing? Konnor didn't have anything to do with Tam anymore, so why did it matter?
"Oh God. You're in serious shit now," Mack bemoaned, rolling his eyes and rubbing his forehead. #Quote by Elaine White
Lgbt quotes by Julia Penelope
#119. Checking out shoes when looking for Lesbians is an elimination device, a negative marker. Lesbians wear sensible shoes whenever possible. Irene and I have learned to pass right by a woman who looks like a Lesbian from head to ankle, but wears flimsy shoes with pointed toes and heels. She is sure to mention a husband by her second sentence.

So, what does a Lesbian look like? Well, we saw two old women drive into a campground in a large motorhome. One dog and no men accompanied them. These are Lesbian-positive clues. We seldom see old women in campgrounds unless they are accompanied by old men. They walked the dog, each wearing a long "ladies" winter coat and lipstick. We casually intercepted them.

"Nice dog," says Irene. The dog growled. We mentioned the movie about nuclear war on TV the night before.

"They should go to Russia. Show it to the Communists," they angrily replied. We walked on. If they were Lesbians, I did not want to know.

"Not Lesbians," pronounced my expert. "There are Lesbians who wear 'ladies' coats and Lesbians who wear lipstick. There are even Lesbians who prefer nuclear war to "Godless Communism"; but Lesbians would not let their dog growl at a woman without correcting it. #Quote by Julia Penelope
Lgbt quotes by Paige Braddock
#120. I didn't set out to do a gay comic, but given the current political and religious climate in this country, I feel it is important as a gay person, and a Christian, to create stories with humor and honesty. #Quote by Paige Braddock

Lgbt quotes by Andrew Holleran
#124. Witty people came out in autumn; beauties in July. #Quote by Andrew Holleran
Lgbt quotes by Lucy Sutcliffe
#125. Us LGBT folk are courageous. By coming out, we are saying that we're ready to face any negative consequences that come our way. It's an act of defiance, and an act of pride, and it's something that should be applauded, not silenced. #Quote by Lucy Sutcliffe
Lgbt quotes by Ani DiFranco
#126. What I like way better than LGBT in terms of labeling sexuality actually is a scheme that comes to me from my friend Animal Prufrock wherein one is identified not by what they supposedly "are" but rather by what they are into. Which brings us to the terms hemosexual, shemosexual, and mosexual. #Quote by Ani DiFranco
Lgbt quotes by Reanna Pryce
#127. So, consider this.

Today he's sober, no traces of chemicals caught in his bloodstream, no bullet-blown high patching synthetic samples over the melody of his mind. Does that make this real or a side-effect of the comedown? Falling in love feels no-parachute sorts of terrifying, the ground rushing up too hard and too fast. If love is intangible, hypothetical, subjective and experienced on a uniquely individual basis, how can Jaxon ever truly know if that's the way he's feeling?

But then, realistically, how can he know that it's not? #Quote by Reanna Pryce
Lgbt quotes by Nicholas Bella
#128. It's what he needs, and whether he ever admits it to us or not, it's what he loves" - Theoden (From Commanded:House of Theoden) #Quote by Nicholas Bella
Lgbt quotes by Skye High
#129. With those shared personal stories and our own valued experiences we all, sometimes unknowingly, have a unique quality to impress vast and contrasting individual footprints onto this world. You may not relate to me as a drag queen, or even a gay man for that matter. However if you take away that small portion of my life, you'll soon discover that I'm just like someone who's already a part of your life, that you're close to. First and foremost, I am someone's son, someone's best friend, someone's partner or someone who you may perhaps meet on the street one day, extending his hand to you when you need it the most, without judgment or hatred. #Quote by Skye High
Lgbt quotes by Richard Dunphy
#130. The different strategies and visions of 'reformists' and 'radicals' are not the only subject of major debate within lesbian, gay, bisexual and queer politics. The fact is that only a tiny minority of non-heterosexuals are involved in any sort of political activism. Various writers and activists have noted with rising alarm an almost mass depoliticisation of lesbian and gay communities in the 1990s. The crass commercialism of the gay scene and the rise of the so-called pink pound and of 'lifestyle' as a signifier of sexual identity (and human worth) has allowed huge profits to be reaped. Playing on the insecurities of people sells 'packages' which can include everything from 'gay apartments' to 'gay holidays' and 'gay clothes' to designer drugs. #Quote by Richard Dunphy
Lgbt quotes by Harvey Milk
#131. The only thing they have to look forward to is hope. And you have to give them hope. Hope for a better world, hope for a better tomorrow, hope for a better place to come to if the pressures at home are too great. Hope that all will be all right. Without hope, not only gays, but the blacks, the seniors, the handicapped, the us'es, the us'es will give up. And if you help elect to the central committee and other offices, more gay people, that gives a green light to all who feel disenfranchised, a green light to move forward. It means hope to a nation that has given up, because if a gay person makes it, the doors are open to everyone.
So if there is a message I have to give, it is that if I've found one overriding thing about my personal election, it's the fact that if a gay person can be elected, it's a green light. And you and you and you, you have to give people hope ... #Quote by Harvey Milk
Lgbt quotes by Andrew Holleran
#132. For the fact was drugs were not necessary to most of us, because the music, youth, sweaty bodies were enough. And if it was too hot, too humid to sleep the next day, and we awoke bathed in sweat, it did not matter: We remained in a state of animated suspension the whole hot day. We lived for music, we lived for Beauty, and we were poor. But we didn't care where we were living, or what we had to do during the day to make it possible; eventually, if you waited long enough, you were finally standing before the mirror in that cheap room, looking at your face one last time, like an actor going onstage, before rushing out to walk in the door of that discotheque and see someone like Malone. #Quote by Andrew Holleran
Lgbt quotes by Lillian Faderman
#133. Some women who married and also had lesbian relationships were genuinely bisexual. Many others married because they could see no other viable choice in the day. #Quote by Lillian Faderman
Lgbt quotes by Christina Westover
#134. It angered him that his sexuality was an issue at all. As far as he was concerned, who he decided to sleep with was his business alone. #Quote by Christina Westover
Lgbt quotes by Mark Pocan
#135. I did sit down with Jared Polis (D-CO), and we had a good discussion about having the LGBT [Equality] Caucus pool some money and perhaps hire a staffer like some of the other caucuses do. That way we could hopefully be even more proactive on issues like ENDA, student non-discrimination and some of the other bills that are out thereit's just a matter of now figuring out - having seven of us total - how can we best move those forward either through legislation and working with the president to issue orders. #Quote by Mark Pocan

Lgbt quotes by Kristen Casey
#139. Charlie stood there like a stone monolith, blinking at his friend. Former friend? Christ. Eventually, he managed to utter, "So it's like that, then?"

Sean visibly swallowed, stood up straight, and seemed to force himself to meet Charlie's provoking gaze. "It is exactly like that," he replied, brave as can be. #Quote by Kristen Casey

Lgbt quotes by Michael Bronski
#141. The progress of LGBT rights is often directly tied to - sometimes through indirect routes - multiple fights for human dignity and freedom. #Quote by Michael Bronski
Lgbt quotes by Michael Bronski
#142. Entertainment in its broadest sense- popular ballads, vaudeville, films, sculptures, plays, paintings, pornography, pulp novels-- has not only been a primary mode of expression of LGBT identity, but one of the most effective means of social change. Ironically, the enormous political power of these forms was often understood by the people who wanted to ban them, not by the people who were simply enjoying them. #Quote by Michael Bronski
Lgbt quotes by Sarah Schulman
#143. I am not here to entertain straight people. #Quote by Sarah Schulman
Lgbt quotes by George Chauncey
#144. [...] Claiming certain historical figures was important to gay men not only because it validated their own homosexuality, but because it linked them to others. One of the ways groups of people constitute themselves as an ethnic, religious or national community is by constructing a history that provides its members with a shared tradition and collective ancestors. This was a central purpose of the projece of gay historical reclamation as well. By constructing historical traditions of their own, gay men defined themselves as a distinct community. By imagining they had collective roots in the past, they asserted a collective identity in the present. #Quote by George Chauncey
Lgbt quotes by Dixon Reuel
#145. As her heart jumped at the alarm and she instinctively snatched up her own backpack from the beside her desk, Meliss regretted not having Lauren's bag to hand. She thought of the clothes stashed away that would still smell of her, the little terrarium that Lauren had painstakingly built inside an old-fashioned light bulb. #Quote by Dixon Reuel
Lgbt quotes by Kathy Baldock
#146. If your church is not going to support the committed same-sex relationships of LGBT congregants, be honest about that. Bait-and-switch is deceptively un-Christ-like and serves to push gay and transgender believers farther away each time the deception happens. #Quote by Kathy Baldock
Lgbt quotes by J.M. Colail
#147. Do you wanna go out for lunch? In celebration?" I asked
and then touched my lips in thought. "Or we could swing by the store
and get something really good for dinner?"
Wesley glanced at me sideways with a puzzled expression I
couldn't figure out. He looked back at the road. "Maybe later," he said, chewing on his thumbnail.
"Why? Since we're out, we might as well stop ... ."
"We can't right now. There are things I have to do first," he said,
looking at me with a grin.
"What?" I asked, innocently walking into his trap, though I
should've known better by now.
"Like take you home and fuck you up, down, and sideways," he
answered, like it was the most obvious thing in the world. #Quote by J.M. Colail

Lgbt quotes by Jane Green
#157. I don't think it matters who you love, just as long as you love. Who cares whether it's a man or a woman? Why does that have anything more to do with the person inside than the color of someone's skin? Personally, I'm pretty fucking disappointed that I seem to be one hundred percent heterosexual. #Quote by Jane Green
Lgbt quotes by Darrell Drake

Lgbt quotes by Jennifer Cosgrove
#162. My resolve not to think about James and his perfect hair lasted until lunch. It wasn't my fault, though; it was his. I was sitting alone in the back corner of the cafeteria at my usual table when he plopped his tray down and sat with me like it was nothing. #Quote by Jennifer Cosgrove

Lgbt quotes by Elaine White
#164. With you I feel like I'm already good enough; I only have to believe it. I can't lose you again." He needed to make the confession because he was realising that Lachlan meant as much to him now
as he always had.
"I know." Lachlan smiled at him and stopped in their walk to draw him into his arms.
Konnor went willingly, clinging onto him. This was exactly how they had said goodbye. It felt like the perfect way to make a promise to always be friends again.
"I love you, Konnor," Lachlan whispered in his ear.
"I love you too. If I ever try to hurt you again, lock me up, shoot me, do whatever you have to do ... but don't send me away," he begged him never to separate them again. #Quote by Elaine White
Lgbt quotes by Barack Obama
#165. I support ensuring that committed gay couples have the same rights and responsibilities afforded to any married couple in this country. I believe strongly in stopping laws designed to take rights away and passing laws that extend equal rights to gay couples. I've required all agencies in the federal government to extend as many federal benefits as possible to LGBT families as the current law allows. And I've called on Congress to repeal the so-called Defense of Marriage Act and to pass the Domestic Partners Benefits and Obligations Act. #Quote by Barack Obama

Lgbt quotes by Emily M. Danforth
#167. I was doing my little stand up shtick, the one I did for pretty girls, so they'd like me quickly and wouldn't try too hard to actually get to know me beyond my role as wisecracking Cameron, the orphan. Maybe it was a little like flirting, but also a kind of protection: Don't get too close; I'm just jokes with substance. #Quote by Emily M. Danforth
Lgbt quotes by Andrew Holleran

Lgbt quotes by Francis Fukuyama
#170. In the second decade of the twenty-first century, that spectrum appears to be giving way in many regions to one defined by identity. The left has focused less on broad economic equality and more on promoting the interests of a wide variety of groups perceived as being marginalized - blacks, immigrants, women, Hispanics, the LGBT community, refugees, and the like. The right, meanwhile, is redefining itself as patriots who seek to protect traditional national identity, an identity that is often explicitly connected to race, ethnicity, or religion. #Quote by Francis Fukuyama
Lgbt quotes by Lance Loud
#171. As anyone who is gay will confirm, being that way is not something you become, it is a set of emotional and physical responses that just are. #Quote by Lance Loud

Lgbt quotes by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
#173. It is an act of homophobia to believe that people in the LGBT community are either too sinful to respond to God's call on their life, or to believe that people in the LGBT community have a fixed nature that will never, according to the blustering, unfounded, and uncharitable declarations of secular psychology, change by the power of God's command. What does God change? Our heart. That is where it all starts. #Quote by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
Lgbt quotes by Scott A. Butler
#174. A defeat for humanity would be the failure to recognise the rights of two people who love each other.

A defeat for humanity is that people accept such hatred and discrimination into their hearts.

A defeat for humanity would be the failure of the church to recognise that nobody can control who a person loves.

A victory for humanity would be the dissolution of a theocratic dystopia that promotes anti-equality (aka "the Vatican") which has no place in a modern society. #Quote by Scott A. Butler

#178. Our glass train, on fragile tracks

Lgbt quotes by Violet Trefusis
#179. Nothing and no one in the world could kill the love I have for you. I have surrendered my whole individuality, the very essence of my being to you. I have given you my body time after time to treat as you pleased. All the hoardings of my imagination I have laid bare to you. There isn't a recess in my brain into which you haven't penetrated. I have clung to you and caressed you and slept with you and I would like to tell the whole world that I clamour for you. You are my lover and I am your mistress, and kingdoms and empires and governments have tottered and succumbed before now to that mighty combination
the most powerful in the world. #Quote by Violet Trefusis
Lgbt quotes by Jaime A. Seba
#180. When did you know you were a girl? When did I know I was a boy?" he said. "I knew my whole life. I can't tell you exactly when, but it wasn't like I was ten and realized, 'Oh gee, I must be a boy!' What people fail to realize is they made that decision way earlier than that. It just happened that their gender identity and their anatomy matched. #Quote by Jaime A. Seba
Lgbt quotes by Carl DeMaio
#181. I've found more tolerance, acceptance and inclusion from social conservative groups who have to reconcile that I'm a Republican who happens to be gay ... versus the intolerance the LGBT leaders see me as a gay man who happens to be a Republican. #Quote by Carl DeMaio

Lgbt quotes by Leona Windwalker
#183. Ben shook his head.
Sitting down he asked, "So, you are Marty, right?"
He got an incredulous look in response along with a cautious, "Yeah."
"You look way different dressed like that and without any make up on and stuff. Like a pretty guy almost, no offense."
Marty widened her eyes incredulously. "Umm...I have a confession here I obviously need to make. We're in public, so don't you dare punch me, or try to jump me later. I got witnesses who'll be able to verify I was here with you and that you threatened me."
Ben's brows furrowed. "What? Why would I do that?"
"Hello, my name is Marty." Marty extended her hand across the table. "I'm a guy. #Quote by Leona Windwalker
Lgbt quotes by Lin-Manuel Miranda
#184. My wife's the reason anything gets done, she nudges me towards promise by degrees. She is a perfect symphony of one our son is her most beautiful reprise. We chase the melodies that seem to find us until they're finished songs and start to play. When senseless acts of tragedy remind us that nothing here is promised--not one day. This show is proof that history remembers. We live in times when hate and fear seem stronger. We rise and fall and light from dying embers--remembrances that hope and love last longer. And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside. I sing Vanessa's symphony. Eliza tells her story. Now, fill the world with music, love, and pride. #Quote by Lin-Manuel Miranda
Lgbt quotes by Chris Oflying

#189. The truth is, the notion that gay marriage is harmful to marriage, is sort of mind-boggling, because these are people trying to get married. But it seems to me, if you want to defend marriage against something, defend it against divorce. #Quote by Cokie Roberts
Lgbt quotes by Julian Bond
#190. If your Bible tells you that gay people ought not be married in your church, don't tell them they can't be married at city hall. Marriage is a civil rite as well a civil right, and we can't let religious bigotry close the door to justice to anyone. #Quote by Julian Bond
Lgbt quotes by Kenneth Logan
#191. If we held grudges for all the idiotic things we said and did as freshman and sophomores, the hallways would be silent. #Quote by Kenneth Logan
Lgbt quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#192. Your morse code interferes with my heart beat. I had a steady heart before you, I replied upon it, it had seen active service and grown strong. Now you alter its pace with your own rhythm you play upon me, drumming me taught. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson

#193. Many a woman secretly has a crush on a man who secretly has a crush on her man. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Lgbt quotes by Jessica Valenti
#194. The same people who wear shirts that read "fuck your feelings" and rail against "political correctness" seem to believe that there should be no social consequences for [voting for Trump]. I keep hearing calls for empathy and healing, civility and polite discourse. As if supporting a man who would fill his administration with white nationalists and misogynists is something to simply agree to disagree on.

Absolutely not. You don't get to vote for a person who brags about sexual assault and expect that the women in your life will just shrug their shoulders. You don't get to play the victim when people unfriend you on Facebook, as if being disliked for supporting a bigot is somehow worse than the suffering that marginalized people will endure under Trump. And you certainly do not get to enjoy a performance by people of color and those in the LGBT community without remark or protest when you enact policies and stoke hatred that put those very people's lives in danger.

Being socially ostracized for supporting Trump is not an infringement of your rights, it's a reasonable response by those of us who are disgusted, anxious, and afraid. I was recently accused by a writer of "vote shaming" – but there's nothing wrong with being made to feel ashamed for doing something shameful. #Quote by Jessica Valenti
Lgbt quotes by I. W. Gregorio
#195. Love isn't a choice. You fall for the person, not their chromosomes. #Quote by I. W. Gregorio
Lgbt quotes by Tlaleng Mofokeng
#196. From all walks of life, the characters depict real human experience and I found myself affirmed by the series (Pose Fx) in more ways than it just being pure entertainment. #Quote by Tlaleng Mofokeng
Lgbt quotes by Anais Nin
#197. June, you have killed my sincerity too. I will never again know who I am, what I am, what I love, what I want. Your beauty has drowned me, the core of me. You carry away with you a part of me reflected in you. When your beauty struck me, it dissolved me. Deep down, I am not different from you. I dreamed you, I wished for your existence. You are the woman I want to be. I see in you that part of me which is you. I feel compassion for your childish pride, for your trembling unsureness, your dramatization of events, your enhancing of the loves given to you. I surrender my sincerity because if I love you it means we share the same fantasies, the same madness. #Quote by Anais Nin
Lgbt quotes by Quentin R. Bufogle
#198. Forget 'pray the gay away.' I you're more turned on by an AR-15 than a pair of tits, time for some serious therapy. Time for all you gun-humpers to come out of the closet. Is this really about the 2nd Amendment and self-defense
or just a pathetic fetish for guys with tiny pee-pees? #Quote by Quentin R. Bufogle

#199. I can't believe you rode the Tilt-A-Whirl for me.
"I must really like you," he says. #Quote by Becky Albertalli
