Default Really Good Quotes About Being Gay

Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?
~Ernest Gaines

No matter how far in or out of the closet you are, you still have a next step.
~Judy Shepard

There's this illusion that homosexuals have sex and heterosexuals fall in love. That's completely untrue. Everybody wants to be loved.
~Boy George

Labels are for filing. Labels are for clothing. Labels are not for people.
~Martina Navratilova

Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your heart or burn down your house, you can never tell.
~Joan Crawford

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
~Dr. Seuss

It's a helluva start, being able to recognize what makes you happy.
~Lucille Ball

Homophobia is a social disease.
~Lauren Bacall

Closets are for clothes not people
~ Author Unknown

War. Rape. Murder. Poverty. Famine. Equal rights for gays. Guess which one the Southern Baptist Convention is protesting?

Well, they aren't specifically about being gay, but I think they apply. The ones in my signature, that is.

Haha.. I think I will use that one to come out to somebody!
The one that touches me a lot is "There's this illusion that homosexuals have sex and heterosexuals fall in love. That's completely untrue. Everybody wants to be loved.
~Boy George " mentioned earlier. Coming out to my straight, closest friend- well, even she at first asked me if I wanted to have sex with her or was attracted to her. That was somewhat funny, but it's a lot different hearing some of those assumptions about homosexuals coming from the parents.

I like this one:
"I started being really proud of the fact that I was Gay, even though I wasn't."
-Kurt Cobain
And this one:
"I was raised around heterosexuals, as all heterosexuals are, that's where us gay people come from...you heterosexuals."
-Ellen DeGeneres
And this one is just for me:
"Some people think I am Gay, Which I think is awesome."

I am too awesome to be straight - I remember reading it somewhere but i have no idea who it is from

"Cut the ending. Revise the script. The man of her dreams is a girl.” ― Julie Anne Peters

“So, let me get this straight-- You want me to stop being a lesbian and being attracted to women because it is a 'sin'? Last time I checked, when you lie you are sinning. Sure, I could tell you I am no longer a lesbian or that I am no longer attracted to women and am straight, or I could even tell you the moon is made of cheese. I could tell you many things, but the moon will still not be made of cheese, and I will still not be attracted to men. I could tell you a lie in order to placate you, but isn’t the truth supposed to set me free? I choose truth over lies any day of the week. ”
― Cristina Marrero

There's only two reasons that you hate gay marriage
1. You're dumb, or
2.You're secretly worried that dicks are delicious.
-Joe Rogan

One time, I cleaned out my closet so good, I ended up on the cover of TIME magazine
-Ellen DeGeneres

Overall, the LGBT community, we're the same, we're like everyone else. Except we're better looking and more stylish. - Wanda Sykes

The fact that gay marriage isn't legal everywhere at this point is a joke. - Adam Levine

Default Re: Really Good Quotes About Being Gay

Loi Pogi – “Let’s get one thing straight…I’m not.”

Jerguin22 – Dennis Rodman: “I don’t mind straight people, as long as they act gay in public.”

Bobby Joe – “I’m mostly straight, I’m only gay in bed.”

Loi Pogi/Smiling Pasta – From a Harvard prof: “I’d rather be black than gay, because when you’re black, you don’t have to tell your mother.”

They say they're preserving "the sanctity of marriage" - which means that two gay men who've been together for twenty-five years can't get married, but a heterosexual guy can still get drunk in Vegas and marry a hooker at the Elvis chapel. The sanctity of marriage has been saved! -- Lea DeLaria

The church says we should get down on our knees and repent. Well, excuse me, but didn't being on my knees cause most of my sins? -- Bob Smith

Using the word "gay" as a euphemism for homosexual is fine I guess. But I've always thought a word like "fabulous" might have been better. Sure would be a lot easier to tell your parents, "Mom, Dad: I'm fabulous! And my friends are fabulous, too! -- Michael Greer
