#1. Just so you know, it makes no difference to me either way," Matt said, "except I would have seriously judged your taste a couple days ago."

Neil didn't know what to say to that. - Author: Nora Sakavic
Lgbt Advocates quotes by Nora Sakavic
#2. 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. - Author: Jaime A. Seba
Lgbt Advocates quotes by Jaime A. Seba
#3. We should be alert to oppose the potential significance of the fact that some government officials and public policy advocates are describing the First Amendment guarantee of the "free exercise" of religion as merely "freedom of worship." But the guarantee of "free exercise" protects the right to come out of our private settings, including churches, synagogues and mosques, to act upon our beliefs, subject only to the legitimate government powers necessary to protect public health, safety and welfare. Free exercise surely protects religious citizens in acting upon their beliefs in public policy debates and in votes cast as citizens or as lawmakers. . . .

We must affirm our religious faiths, unite to insist upon our constitutional right to the free exercise of our religions and honor their vital roles in establishing and preserving and prospering this nation. . . .

We are the "salt of the earth." We must retain our savour by living our religion and by asserting ourselves as witnesses of God.

Lgbt Advocates quotes by Dallin H. Oaks
#4. Women, who are the prime victims of religion, and perhaps in some, stockholm syndrome effect, often form the most fervent advocates of the very thing that degrades them. I believe that in the end, it will be women who will turn this around. This should be the final stage of feminism. For a feminist to still believe in god is like a freed slave still living on the plantation. - Author: Matthew Chapman
Lgbt Advocates quotes by Matthew Chapman
#5. If you're in doubt as to whether or not a question is inappropriate, here's a helpful tip. Ask yourself if you would feel comfortable asking that question to a cisgender person. Generally speaking we as a society don't around asking people about their private parts. They're called private for a reason. - Author: Ian Thomas Malone
Lgbt Advocates quotes by Ian Thomas Malone

Lgbt Advocates quotes by Charles Duhigg

Lgbt Advocates quotes by Lisa Kröger
#8. A good cause is often injured more by ill-timed efforts of its friends than by the arguments of its enemies. Persuasion, perseverance and patience are the best advocates on questions depending on the will of others. - Author: Thomas Jefferson
Lgbt Advocates quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#9. There is no question that taking such an advocacy role in seeking compassion, fair treatment in the society, and the happiness and legal status of marriage for gay and lesbian people will get such advocates in trouble. Going against the prevailing culture almost always does. But we are in good company. Jesus teaches us in the Sermon on the Mount, "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you" (Matthew 5:10-12). - Author: Gene Robinson
Lgbt Advocates quotes by Gene Robinson
#10. I don't check any particular box. I've never caught feelings for anyone because they were a male or a female. I feel for people because of who they are. Not what they are. - Author: Tammy Ferebee
Lgbt Advocates quotes by Tammy Ferebee
#11. What God was giving the eunuchs, through Isaiah's proclamation, was not just a place in society, and not just hope for a future. By giving the eunuchs the same kinds of gifts given to Abraham and Sarah--a name, legacy, family, acceptance, and blessing--God was consciously associating the two stories in the minds of the people. God was giving the eunuchs a story to connect to--a story that set a president, grounded in divine grace. That was the story I needed to hear. I needed to know that my problems were like the eunuch's problems, which were like Abraham and Sarah's problems, and that all of these complications were overcome by God's great love. - Author: Austen Hartke
Lgbt Advocates quotes by Austen Hartke
#12. Get your sticky fingers away from my cookies," Ben ordered, without turning his head, to see Jaxton trying to steal one from the cooking tray.
"You weren't saying that last night," Jaxton retaliated, coming up to Ben's side, to give him a nudge. They were both smiling, while looking down at the counter, where Ben was making his delicious rosemary cookies. "In fact, I seem to remember you grabbing my sticky fingers and putting them in your mouth," he teased, speaking quietly, so that Lyon wouldn't hear them at the other side of the room.
Ben turned to Jaxton and abandoned his baking, to catch his face in flour covered hands and plant a deep kiss on his lips.
Jaxton opened his mouth, in acceptance of his kiss.

Lgbt Advocates quotes by Thomas Sowell
#14. They must live outside class, without relations or money; they must work and stick to each other till death. But England belonged to them. That, besides companionship, was their reward. Her air and sky were theirs, not the timorous millions' who own stuffy little boxes, but never their own souls. - Author: E. M. Forster
Lgbt Advocates quotes by E. M. Forster
#15. 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. - Author: Ann Bannon
Lgbt Advocates quotes by Ann Bannon
#16. 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. - Author: James H. Cone
Lgbt Advocates quotes by James H. Cone
#17. Those advocates who work for world peace by urging a system of world government are called impractical dreamers. Those impractical dreamers are entitled to ask their critics what is so practical about war. - Author: Walter Cronkite
Lgbt Advocates quotes by Walter Cronkite
#18. Homophobia is a tough one. In some places it's actually very OK to be homophobic. Comedy clubs in general are very unsafe spaces for LGBT, for women, for Asian people. So my goal in comedy has sort of been to make this a safe space for people who were like me. - Author: Margaret Cho
Lgbt Advocates quotes by Margaret Cho
#19. Privilege is when you can afford to sit back and criticize others who have to fight for the things you take for granted. - Author: DaShanne Stokes
Lgbt Advocates quotes by DaShanne Stokes
#20. I realize how depraved it was to instill false guilt in an innocent child's conscience, causing a distorted image of life, God, & self, leaving little if any feeling of personal worth. - Author: Mary Griffith
Lgbt Advocates quotes by Mary Griffith
#21. No, this wasn't a 1960s student riot. Out there were the streets. There were no nice dorms for sleeping. No school cafeteria for certain food. No affluent parents to send us checks. There was a ghetto riot on home turf. We already had our war wounds. So this was just another battle. Nobody thought of it as history, herstory, my-story, your-story, or our-story. We were being denied a place to dance together. That's all. The total charisma of a revolution in our CONSCIOUSNESS rising from the gutter to the gut to the heart and the mind was here. Non-existence (or part existence) was coming into being, and being into becoming. Our Mother Stonewall was giving birth to a new era and we were the midwives. - Author: New York Public Library
Lgbt Advocates quotes by New York Public Library
#22. I want to know what it feels like to kiss a guy. And you've had a lot of practice, so I know you're a good kisser.
Are you simultaneously complimenting me and calling me a whore? - Author: Abigail Roux
Lgbt Advocates quotes by Abigail Roux
#23. Freedom means equality. If you don't believe in equality for all, you don't believe in freedom. - Author: DaShanne Stokes
Lgbt Advocates quotes by DaShanne Stokes
#24. I liked it when our feet were aligned,
left with left, and struck the ground at the same
time, leaving footprints on the shore that I
wished to return to and, in secret, place my
foot where his had left its mark. - Author: Andre Aciman
Lgbt Advocates quotes by Andre Aciman
#25. Like that time you were half-asleep and rolled with your shoulder in my larynx and said, "Can you breathe?" And I couldn't really but didn't need to either, because air seemed unnecessary with all that happiness in my chest. - Author: Sarah Henstra
Lgbt Advocates quotes by Sarah Henstra
#26. He cupped her face and held her still, as he looked into her brown eyes; she was all flash and no bang. She talked big, but when it came down to it, she was a simple girl. - Author: Elaine White
Lgbt Advocates quotes by Elaine White
#27. 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. - Author: Diriye Osman
Lgbt Advocates quotes by Diriye Osman
#28. my blood runs pink
(for my sexuality that is mine to embrace, not yours to strike
with lightning bolts of change)
and red
(for the life i will continue to live, the life you cannot take
away from me)
and orange
(for my siblings who heal me with their love and
understanding, helping me piece myself back together after you tried
to break me)
and yellow
(for the sunlight from within that still manages to shine in
these dark times)
and green
(for existing in the natural, physical world when all you want
is my disappearance)
and blue
(for the serenity we bring amidst the disturbances we face)
and purple
(for my spirit, which won't be broken)
(it can never be broken and you will never break us) - Author: Courtney Carola
Lgbt Advocates quotes by Courtney Carola
#29. It is the way of persecutors of good people, of those who hate truth, love a lie, do not know the reward of righteousness, do not adhere to what is good or to righteous judgment, who are vigilant not for what is good but for what is evil, from whom gentleness and patience are far removed, who love worthless things, pursue a reward, have no mercy for the poor, do not work on behalf of the oppressed, do not know the one who made them, are murderers of children, corrupters of God's creation, who turn away from someone in need, who oppress the afflicted, are advocates of the wealthy, lawless judges of the poor, utterly sinful. May you be delivered, children, from all these things! - Author: Michael W. Holmes
Lgbt Advocates quotes by Michael W. Holmes

Lgbt Advocates quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#31. An incessant change of means to attain unalterable ends is always going on; we must take care not to let these sundry means undo eminence in the perspective of our minds; for, since the beginning, there has been an unending cycle of them, and for each its advocates have claimed adoption as the sole solution of successful war. - Author: George S. Patton
Lgbt Advocates quotes by George S. Patton
