"In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."
-Martin Luther King Jr.
"Just by being out you're doing your part. It's like recycling. You're doing your part for the environment if you recycle; you're doing your part for the gay movement if you're out."
--Tennis champ Martina Navratilova to San Francisco Bay Times.
 "To a large segment of our society, gay people are viewed as sexual outlaws. ... God forbid a straight person should acknowledge that there are pleasures associated with their anus. That's a big, big door that people don't want to open."
--NewsRadio TV actor Phil Hartman to Los Angeles magazine.
 "The gay label doesn't really bother me, as long as it's just not something that is restrictive. I just don't think one should live one's life as a gay man. I don't think that sexuality necessarily implies a life style package that comes with it."
--The Pet Shop Boys' Neil Tennant to the Washington Blade.
 "I was 18 or 19 when I helped [actor Montgomery Clift] realize that he was homosexual, and I barely knew what I was talking about. I was a virgin when I was married and not a world expert on sexuality. But I loved Monty with all my heart and just knew that he was unhappy. I knew that he was meant to be with a man and not a woman, and I discussed it with him. I introduced him to some really nice young guys."
--Elizabeth Taylor to The Advocate.
 "I've wondered what my sexuality might be, but I've never wondered whether it was acceptable or not. Anyway, who really cares whether I'm gay or straight?"
--Pop singer George Michael to Britain's Big Issue magazine.
 "So many people are gay -- or go both ways. I don't care. I don't want to hear about it. ... I don't go for this outing business. If someone is gay, that's their business, and they should have the right to protect their privacy about it."
--Richard Nixon, according to Monica Crowley's book Nixon Off the Record.
