“Gender doesn’t need – and doesn’t have – gatekeepers.”

Juno Dawson

 ” All of us who are openly gay are living and writing the history of our movement. We are no more — and no less — heroic than the suffragists and abolitionists of the 19th century; and the labor organizers, Freedom Riders, Stonewall demonstrators, and environmentalists of the 20th century. We are ordinary people, living our lives, and trying as civil-rights activist Dorothy Cotton said, to ‘fix what ain’t right’ in our society.”

Senator Tammy Baldwin

“Being gay is a natural normal beautiful variation on being human. Period. End of subject.”

Larry Kramer

“I am a strong, black, lesbian woman. Every single time I say it, I feel so much better.”

Brittney Griner

“It takes no compromise to give people their rights…it takes no money to respect the individual. It takes no political deal to give people freedom. It takes no survey to remove repression.”

Harvey Milk

“We have different experiences, but trans women have experiences that do parallel with the whole fabric of what womanhood is. Embracing trans women, listening to their stories, enriches what womanhood is. It expands it and makes it even better.”

Janet Mock

“The only queer people are those who don’t love anybody.” 

Rita Mae Brown

The living world is a continuum in each and every one of its aspects. The sooner we learn this concerning human sexual behavior, the sooner we shall reach a sound understanding of the realities of sex.”

Alfred C. Kinsey

“I love people. It’s not about a gender. It’s just about the spirit that exudes from that other person you’re with.”

Halsey

“We are powerful because we have survived.”

Audre Lorde
