Dorothy Parker
“Heterosexuality is not normal, it's just common.”
Dorothy Parker

Cassandra Clare
“Isabelle snorted. 'All the boys are gay. In this truck, anyway. Well, not you, Simon.'
'You noticed' said Simon.

'I think of myself as a freewheeling bisexual,' added Magnus.

'Please never say those words in front of my parents,' said Alec. 'Especially my father.'

'I thought your parents were okay with you, you know, coming out,' Simon said, leaning around Isabelle to look at Alec, who was — as he often was — scowling, and pushing his floppy dark hair out of his eyes. Aside from the occasional exchange, Simon had never talked to Alec much. He wasn’t an easy person to get to know. But, Simon admitted to himself, his own recent estrangement from his mother made him more curious about Alec’s answer than he would have been otherwise.

'My mother seems to have accepted it,' Alec said. 'But my father — no, not really. Once he asked me what I thought had turned me gay.'

Simon felt Isabelle tense next to him. 'Turned you gay?' She sounded incredulous. 'Alec, you didn’t tell me that.'

'I hope you told him you were bitten by a gay spider,' said Simon.

Magnus snorted; Isabelle looked confused. 'I’ve read Magnus’s stash of comics,' said Alec, 'so I actually know what you’re talking about' A small smile played around his mouth. 'So would that give me the proportional gayness of a spider?'

'Only if it was a really gay spider,' said Magnus, and he yelled as Alec punched him in the arm. 'Ow, okay, never mind.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Lost Souls

John Green
“Well, while you were in the bathroom, I sat down at this picnic table here in Bumblefug, Kentucky, and noticed that someone had carved that GOD HATES FAG, which, aside from being a grammatical nightmare, is absolutely ridiculous. So I'm changing it to 'God Hates Baguettes.' It's tough to disagree with that. Everybody hates baguettes.”
John Green, An Abundance of Katherines

Jeanette Winterson
“I seem to have run in a great circle, and met myself again on the starting line.”
Jeanette Winterson, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit

Simone de Beauvoir
“In itself, homosexuality is as limiting as heterosexuality: the ideal should be to be capable of loving a woman or a man; either, a human being, without feeling fear, restraint, or obligation.”
Simone de Beauvoir

Tina Fey
“And, you know, politics aside, the success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women - except, of course —those who will end up, you know, like, paying for their own rape ‘kit ‘n’ stuff, But for everybody else, it’s a win-win. Unless you’re a gay woman who wants to marry your partner of 20 years - whatever. But for most women, the success of conservative women is good for all of us. Unless you believe in evolution. You know - actually, I take it back. The whole thing’s a disaster.”
Tina Fey

Stephen Fry
“My first words, as I was being born [...] I looked up at my mother and said, 'that's the last time I'm going up one of those.”
Stephen Fry

Inga Muscio
“Men who refuse to use condoms do not deserve to be fucked by anyone but other men who refuse to use condoms.”
Inga Muscio

Derek Jarman
“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.”
Derek Jarman

Herb Ritts
“Being an American is about having the right to be who you are. Sometimes that doesn't happen.”
Herb Ritts

Jet Mykles
“Straight? So is spaghetti until you heat it up”
Jet Mykles, Squire

Mark A. Roeder
“The whole world goes on and on about love. Poets spend their lives writing about it. Everyone thinks it's the most wonderful thing. But, when you mention two guys in love, they forget all that and freak out.”
Mark A. Roeder, Outfield Menace

Robert Clark
“When asked why I don't believe in God I reply, quite simply, "vaginas".”
Robert Clark

James Howe
“I hated that the soldier doll had my name. I mean, please. I didn't play with him much. He was another Christmas present from my clueless grandparents. One time when they were visiting, my grandpa asked me if G.I. Joe had been in any wars lately. I said, "No, but he and Ken got married last week." Every Christmas since then, my grandparents have sent me a check.”
James Howe, Totally Joe

Hector Avalos
“By Hays' reasoning, penetrating a rectum with a penis is a violation of how God meant humans to function. However, penetrating a human body with a sword, a common way to kill people in biblical times, is acceptable. Apparently human bodies were designed to be penetrated by metal implements, but not by flesh.”
Hector Avalos

Alfred Bruce Douglas
“I am the Love that Dare not Speak its Name”
Alfred Bruce Douglas

Dustin Lance Black
“When I was 13 years old, my beautiful mother and my father moved me from a conservative Mormon home in San Antonio, Texas, to California, and I heard the story of Harvey Milk. And it gave me hope. It gave me the hope to live my life; it gave me the hope that one day I could live my life openly as who I am and that maybe even I could fall in love and one day get married. Most of all, if Harvey had not been taken from us 30 years ago, I think he'd want me to say to all of the gay and lesbian kids out there tonight who have been told they are less than by their churches, or by the government, or by their families, that you are beautiful, wonderful creatures of value. And that no matter what everyone tells you, God does love you, and that very soon, I promise you, you will have equal rights federally across this great nation of ours.”
Dustin Lance Black

E.M. Forster
“A happy ending was imperative. I shouldn't have bothered to write otherwise. I was determined that in fiction anyway two men should fall in love and remain in it for the ever and ever that fiction allows, and in this sense, Maurice and Alec still roam the greenwood.”
E.M. Forster, Maurice

Christina Westover
“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.”
Christina Westover, Precipice

Conan O'Brien
“Rev. Pat Robertson says that if more states legalize gay marriage, God will destroy America. He did say that afterwards, gays will come in and do a beautiful renovation.”
Conan O'Brien

E.M. Forster
“I have almost completed a long novel, but it is unpublishable until my death and England's.”
E.M. Forster

Edward Carpenter
“Anyone who realises what Love is, the dedication of the heart, so profound, so absorbing, so mysterious, so imperative, and always just in the noblest natures so strong, cannot fail to see how difficult, how tragic even, must often be the fate of those whose deepest feelings are destined from the earliest days to be a riddle and a stumbling-block, unexplained to themselves, passed over in silence by others.”
Edward Carpenter, The Intermediate Sex: A Study of Some Transitional Types of Men and Women

Hannah Hart
“Nobody is wired wrong, because there’s no wrong and right in the way we are.”
Hannah Hart

Dennis Sharpe
“Like all men who look this good, Frank has no interest in women.”
Dennis Sharpe, Blood & Spirits

Tamora Pierce
“Sadly for my wedding plans, I learned that Nestor is a bardash. I envy the men who enjoy his favors. He has always treated me with friendship which I now value more than my old romantic feelings.”
Tamora Pierce, Bloodhound

Nigel Slater
“Well let's face it, who on earth besides antique dealers and gay couples actually still give dinner parties?”
Nigel Slater

“I even tried to usher her into this century by explaining that wearing rainbows didn’t automatically mean a person was gay. The Lucky Charms leprechaun was not necessarily a homosexual. The Care Bear with the rainbow on his tummy did not have a life partner. He didn’t even have genitals. (6)”
Elna Baker, The New York Regional Mormon Singles Halloween Dance

Edward Carpenter
“That men of this kind despise women, though a not uncommon belief, is one which hardly appears to be justified. Indeed, though naturally not inclined to 'fall in love' in this direction, such men are by their nature drawn rather near to women, and it would seem that they often feel a singular appreciation and understanding of the emotional needs and destinies of the other sex, leading in many cases to a genuine though what is called 'Platonic' friendship. There is little doubt that they are often instinctively sought after by women, who, without suspecting the real cause, are conscious of a sympathetic chord in the homogenic which they miss in the normal man.”
Edward Carpenter, The Intermediate Sex: A Study of Some Transitional Types of Men and Women

Robert Clark
“I have always been homosexual and it surprises me that more people are not; women's pink bits are moist and forbidding and I enjoy those qualities much more in a Victoria sponge.”
Robert Clark

Glenway Wescott
“But let us laugh carelessly like other men.
Let us be timid even among fools.
Let us knot silence around our throats.
For they would surely kill us.”
Glenway Wescott
