Lgbtq quotes by Megan Erickson

Lgbtq quotes by Halo Scot
#3. For once, I'd love if someone reacted unpredictably to death. Chant or somersault or fucking yodel to show me you have a mind of your own. - Author: Halo Scot
Lgbtq quotes by Halo Scot
#4. I guess what they say is true - sometimes you have to smack up against a brick wall before you can admit it's time to change or die. For me the death was an emotional one. It's taken me this long to figure out I was killing myself by shutting off my true feelings and desires. - Author: Claire Thompson
Lgbtq quotes by Claire Thompson
#5. Actively question what we are doing and why. Rather than passively consuming our culture's ideas and representation of gender, break them down. Reflect on why they are the way they are. Greater undestanding comes through analysis. - Author: Ashley Mardell
Lgbtq quotes by Ashley Mardell
#6. I was an utterance in absentia. I was a forgotten word, uttered and mislaid long ago. I was the word that existed because there was another word that was my opposite, and without it I was nothing. I gained meaning only by acknowledging that possible other.
Nida - Author: Faiqa Mansab
Lgbtq quotes by Faiqa Mansab

Lgbtq quotes by Allen Ginsberg
#8. It might seem daunting to a congregation to have to learn about pronouns, or to designate a bathroom gender-neutral, or to have difficult conversations about what it means to affirm LGBTQ+ identities. But transgender people are not a burden for Christianity, or for the church. They come bearing gifts! - Author: Austen Hartke
Lgbtq quotes by Austen Hartke
#9. My ultimate authority would be the school librarian Mrs. Greenbacher. - Author: Shawn Stewart Ruff
Lgbtq quotes by Shawn Stewart Ruff
#10. How heavenly it would be to live their lives free from the thought that they were being criticized, pointed out - their love for each other discussed as though it were some low vulgar thing. - Author: Lilyan Brock
Lgbtq quotes by Lilyan Brock
#11. Love should never mean having to live in fear. - Author: DaShanne Stokes
Lgbtq quotes by DaShanne Stokes
#12. Together, in that room, our childhood notions of love melted away. We discovered love was not a fairytale. Sometimes there were no happy endings, and when there were, you needed to work like hell to keep the happiness alive. - Author: Cristina Marrero
Lgbtq quotes by Cristina Marrero
#13. Because of how rarely our privilege is examined, even our social justice movements will tend to focus on the most privileged and most well represented people within those groups. Anti-racism groups will often tend to prioritize the needs of straight men of color, feminist groups will tend to prioritize the needs of white women, LGBTQ groups will tend to prioritize the needs of white gay cisgender men, disability rights groups will tend to prioritize the needs of disabled white men...Because the needs of the most privileged are usually the ones prioritized, they are often the only ones considered when discussing solutions to oppression and inequality. These solutions, not surprisingly, often leave the underprivileged populations in our movements behind. - Author: Ijeoma Oluo
Lgbtq quotes by Ijeoma Oluo
#14. If you can kill it in the bedroom, chances are you can kill it in the kitchen, too - and studies have shown that men who help out more with the chores have more sex with their wives (really!). We know, gender roles run deep, which is why women in hetero relationships still end up doing the vast majority of the domestic work despite being the breadwinners in two-thirds of American homes, leaving them burned out, resentful, and, nope, not really in the mood. But it doesn't have to be this way - and, in fact, we might want to borrow a page from our LGBTQ sisters and brothers (or those who identify as neither): research shows they split chores, decisions, and finances more evenly - Author: Jessica Bennett
Lgbtq quotes by Jessica Bennett
#15. Our culture is constantly thrusting gender expectations on all of us. This becomes a problem when it limits people's expressions and identities and perpetuates intolerance of anything that's not the norm. - Author: Ashley Mardell
Lgbtq quotes by Ashley Mardell
#16. Folks who believe that abortion is permissible in the case of rape, but not permissible in the case of accidental pregnancy from consensual sex, are not actually condemning abortion; rather the moral axis here is the sexual behavior----the blameworthiness----of the pregnant person. - Author: June Eric-Udorie
Lgbtq quotes by June Eric-Udorie
#17. Desperately hoping other gays know how gay you are without you saying anything is gay culture. - Author: R. Cooper
Lgbtq quotes by R. Cooper
#18. Before long, dearest...we will be free to live our lives in our own way - free to love each other away from the people who can't understand. We will go somewhere where they can never again take from us our right to live. Somewhere there is such a place, I'm sure. - Author: Lilyan Brock
Lgbtq quotes by Lilyan Brock
#19. I wanted to hear his window open, hear his espadrilles on the balcony, and then the sound of my own window, which was never locked, being pushed open as he'd step into my room after everyone had gone to bed, slip under my covers, undress me without asking, and after making me want him more than I thought I could ever want another living soul, gently, softly, and, with the kindness one Jew extends to another, work his way into my body, gently and softly, after heeding the words I'd been rehearsing for days now, Please, don't hurt me, which meant, Hurt me all you want. - Author: Andre Aciman
Lgbtq quotes by Andre Aciman
#20. My last thought before falling asleep last night was a realisation that I was falling in love with Andrew.
Well, not me exactly. My stupid, traitorous heart. - Author: N.R. Walker
Lgbtq quotes by N.R. Walker
#21. Spectrums (...) One of the reasons Im so fond of spectrums is because I believe, with fearce tenacity, that *nothing* in this world is black and white.
Spectrums embrace gray spaces, ambiguity, and fluidity. Since these are all concepts which are integral to the human experience, I find spectrums particularly helpfull in understanding and describing identity.
(...) as we learn about various identities, it's important we recognize they are not "all or nothing" concepts. Many identities can exist in various degrees and come in a range of possibilities. Remembering this is incredibly crucial as we progress. - Author: Ashley Mardell
Lgbtq quotes by Ashley Mardell
#22. His voice is both low and quiet, and it has this hypnotic rhythm to it. I wonder whether someday he'll give sermons with that voice, whether he'll throw down judgement with that voice. - Author: Christina Lauren
Lgbtq quotes by Christina Lauren
#23. There is no difference:
Love is love and love is love.
We are all the same. - Author: Tyler Knott Gregson
Lgbtq quotes by Tyler Knott Gregson
#24. the rapport between two men or two women can be absolute and perfect, as it can never be between man and woman, and perhaps some people want just this, as others want that more shifting and uncertain thing that happens between men and women. - Author: Patricia Highsmith
Lgbtq quotes by Patricia Highsmith
#25. I believe that 'love' and 'wrong' are two deeply unrelated words that should never be thrown into the same sentence together. Like 'dessert' and 'broccoli. - Author: Cat Winters
Lgbtq quotes by Cat Winters
#26. People are complicated. And messy. Seems too convenient that we'd all fit inside some multiple-choice question. - Author: Riley Cavanaugh
Lgbtq quotes by Riley Cavanaugh
#27. She's dressed in a white her soul doesn't reflect, a drop-dead beauty with drop-dead morals. - Author: Halo Scot
Lgbtq quotes by Halo Scot
#28. Are you?" I said. "Gay, I mean?"
-
I hoped he wasn't offended by my asking, but after everything that had happened, I really wanted to know.
"No," he said. "I thought I was for about a w-w-week once. But now I know I'm not."
If there was ever an answer that sounded like the truth, that was it. - Author: Brent Hartinger
Lgbtq quotes by Brent Hartinger
#29. Is this what she would have wanted, Hawke?" Ronan asked quietly. "Justice at the cost of an innocent man and his child? - Author: Sloane Kennedy
Lgbtq quotes by Sloane Kennedy
#30. But if you dig deep enough, I believe you will discover a God that is bigger than your box. - Author: Amber Cantorna
Lgbtq quotes by Amber Cantorna
#31. I'm quite certain now that I'm male and always have been, but I was told otherwise for so long that I accepted I couldn't be. - Author: Ana Mardoll
Lgbtq quotes by Ana Mardoll
#32. I don't want to be me. I don't want to second-guess if my friends are going to be okay with me being me, and more importantly, I don't want to see what happens if they're not. - Author: Adam Silvera
Lgbtq quotes by Adam Silvera
#33. Once he asked me what I thought had turned me gay."
"I hope you told him you were bitten by a gay spider," said Simon. - Author: Cassandra Clare
Lgbtq quotes by Cassandra Clare
#34. I didn't set out to do a gay comic, but given the current political and religious climate in this country, I feel it is important as a gay person, and a Christian, to create stories with humor and honesty. - Author: Paige Braddock
Lgbtq quotes by Paige Braddock
#35. I was shut off from my body; I had barely thought about sexuality or longing. Up until this point, my sexual experiences had felt business like or even transactional...I hadn't been suppressing urges or denying my needs. I didn't feel like I had any, not corporeal ones. My journal entries from that time speak to depression and feelings of isolation, fears that a friend would leave, a sense that I had been responsible for my mother's departure and would therefore cause anyone I loved or needed to leave. I was still spending most of my time in my head. I was removed from my own feelings. - Author: Carrie Brownstein
Lgbtq quotes by Carrie Brownstein
#36. the way his mouth shifted into a smile even as he kissed me - Author: Gillian St. Kevern
Lgbtq quotes by Gillian St. Kevern
#37. Gabriel.' I'm so close to him our lips are almost touching, and then I move closer so our lips are touching as I say his name again. It's like a kiss but it's not really a kiss. And it's nice and I want more. I move my lips without saying his name, still barely touching, then closer, caressing his lips with mine. And he kisses me. - Author: Sally Green
Lgbtq quotes by Sally Green
#38. You had to be willing to fight in order for a love story to last a life time. - Author: Cristina Marrero
Lgbtq quotes by Cristina Marrero
#39. I only say it because without saying I don't think anything can be properly understood. How we were able to see slaughter without flinching. Because we were nothing ourselves, to begin with. We knew what to do with nothing, we were at home there. I almost wasn't able to say, my father died too. I saw his body. Hunger is a sort of fire, a furnace. I loved my father when I was a human person formerly. Then he died and I was hungry and then the ship. Then nothing. Then America. Then John Cole. John Cole was my love, all my love. - Author: Sebastian Barry
Lgbtq quotes by Sebastian Barry
#40. He knew I was gay for ages," he said, his voice soft. "We both did. Since we were, like, ten or eleven, maybe. As soon as we understood what gay was, we knew that's what I was. We... We used to kiss sometimes, when we were kids. When we were alone. Just little childish kisses, little pecks on the lips because we thought it was fun. We were always... really affectionate with each other. We'd cuddle and... we were kind to each other, rather than nasty like most children. I think we were so caught up in each other that we just... missed all the heteronormative propaganda that's thrust at you when you're that age. We didn't really realize it was weird until - yeah, until we were ten or eleven. But that didn't really stop us. I guess... I guess I always felt like it was more romantic than Aled did. Aled always just treated it like it was something that friends did rather than boyfriends. Aled... he's always been weird. He doesn't care what people think. He doesn't even, like, register the social norms... he's just caught up in his own little world. - Author: Alice Oseman
Lgbtq quotes by Alice Oseman
#41. I know you want to think Dad's fine with me being gay, but he's not."
"But if you don't tell me when people say things like that to you, or do things that hurt you, then how can I help you?" Simon could feel Isabelle's agitation vibrating through her body. "How can I-"
"Iz," Alec said tiredly. "It's not like it's one big bad things. It's a lot of little invisible things. When Magnus and I were traveling, and I'd call from the road, Dad never asked how he was. When I get up to talk in Clave meetings, no one listens, and I don't know if it's because I'm young or if it's something else. I saw Mom talking to a friend about her grandchildren and the second I walked into the room they shut up. Irina Cartwright told me it was a pity no one would ever inherit my blue eyes now ... It's not like a stab wound you can protect me from. It's a million little paper cuts every day."
( City of Lost Souls- Cassandra Clare) - Author: Cassandra Clare
Lgbtq quotes by Cassandra Clare
#42. Jeff Chu's pilgrimage across America to discover his own place as a gay man in the Christian church as well as attitudes about being gay and Christian across denominations is at once timely, smart, poignant, disturbing, inspiring, and maddening. It's essential reading for anyone who cares about the rights of the LGBTQ community to be treated as equal citizens at every level, including the religious-which means it should be essential reading for everybody. - Author: Donna Freitas
Lgbtq quotes by Donna Freitas
#43. Anyone can be made to feel like an outsider. It's up to the people who have the power to exclude. Often it's on the basis of race. Depending on a culture's fears and biases, Jews can be treated as outsiders. Muslims can be treated as outsiders. Christians can be treated as outsiders. The poor are always outsiders. The sick are often outsiders. People with disabilities can be treated as outsiders. Members of the LGBTQ community can be treated as outsiders. Immigrants are almost always outsiders. And in most every society, women can be made to feel like outsiders - even in their own homes.
Overcoming the need to create outsiders is our greatest challenge as human beings. It is the key to ending deep inequality. We stigmatize and send to the margins people who trigger in us the feelings we want to avoid. This is why there are so many old and weak and sick and poor people on the margins of society. We tend to push out the people who have qualities we're most afraid we will find in ourselves - and sometimes we falsely ascribe qualities we disown to certain groups, then push those groups out as a way of denying those traits in ourselves. This is what drives dominant groups to push different racial and religious groups to the margins.
And we're often not honest about what's happening. If we're on the inside and see someone on the outside, we often say to ourselves, "I'm not in that situation because I'm different. But that's just pride talking. We could easily be that pers - Author: Melinda Gates
Lgbtq quotes by Melinda Gates
#44. Light bursts behind my closed eyes, so intensely I nearly hear the popping sound. It's my brain melting, or my world ending, or maybe we've just been hit by a meteor and this is the rapture and I'm given one last perfect moment before I'm sent to purgatory and he;s sent somewhere much, much better.
It isn't his first kiss - I know that - but it's his first real one. - Author: Christina Lauren
Lgbtq quotes by Christina Lauren
#45. Guns' aka Luke Gunner had a record as long as my cock. Believe me, it was impressive." ~Lloyd Ledbetter - Author: Eva LeNoir
Lgbtq quotes by Eva LeNoir
#46. I want queer authors to write anything and everything they need to write. I have no interest in gatekeeping; I want the full spectrum. I want the coming out books. I want the books about queer suffering. I want on-page catharsis and exploration of trauma. I want the happy books, too: queer joy books, cute romantic comedies, first crush books, fantasies about queer royals and revolutionaries and spaceship captains. (...) We need all types of queer stories because all types of queer people exist. I want the market to be so saturated with queer books that anyone who needs to see themselves in a story - anyone who hasn't yet seen themselves, hasn't yet gotten to be the hero - can walk into any bookstore and find a book (or six) about someone who experiences the world like they do. I want every queer author to get the chance to tell their story. To tell people, We exist everywhere. We suffer, we survive, we love. We can be magic, too. - Author: Nina Varela
Lgbtq quotes by Nina Varela
#47. People who concern themselves with the rights of other adults who engage in consensual acts involving sex, love, and/or eating croissants together are damaged and in pain. - Author: Rob Delaney
Lgbtq quotes by Rob Delaney
#48. Don't.
Don't come out unless you want to. Don't come out for anyone else's sake. Don't come out because you think society expects you to.
Come out for yourself.
Come out to yourself.
Shout, sing it.
Softly stutter.
Correct those who say they knew before you did.
That's not how sexuality works, it's yours to define. - Author: Dean Atta
Lgbtq quotes by Dean Atta
#49. He looks at me. His face is dotted with raindrops but I think there are tears too.
'I love her. I always have. You know that.'
'And me?'
And I known he means how I feel about him and me kissing him.
'You're my friend, Gabriel.'
'Do you kiss all your friends like that?' But he asks it without the harshness of his other questions. It's a real question.
'Just you. - Author: Sally Green
Lgbtq quotes by Sally Green
#50. I was diamond on the outside, and I would not break.
Inside, though, I was already broken. - Author: Shaun David Hutchinson
Lgbtq quotes by Shaun David Hutchinson
#51. I was unable to deny my love for Jesus, but equally unable to make my love toward women disappear. - Author: Amber Cantorna
Lgbtq quotes by Amber Cantorna
#52. Some critics of trans people have told us that we shouldn't feel this pain of being denied the legitimacy of our own selves; gender is, of course, just a social construct. I wonder if these people also tell widows not to bother grieving their husbands, because marriage is also just another social construct. - Author: C.N. Lester
Lgbtq quotes by C.N. Lester
#53. We all have our own unique place in the infinite gender universe. - Author: Ashley Mardell
Lgbtq quotes by Ashley Mardell
#54. ten reasons to love being queer

viii.
the people within our community are so supportive and so caring and so loving, most of the time towards people they don't even know
and it is in moments like that when you realize that the queer community is more than a community
we are a family - Author: Courtney Carola
Lgbtq quotes by Courtney Carola
#55. Privilege is not knowing that you're hurting others and not listening when they tell you. - Author: DaShanne Stokes
Lgbtq quotes by DaShanne Stokes
#56. It was as though each of them had discovered something unexpected but infinitely desirable. They were not yet sure of each other, but they wanted to be. - Author: Cassandra Clare
Lgbtq quotes by Cassandra Clare
#57. A young homosexual friend recently said, "It's no secret that you, that one, has such-and-such color hair, is yea high, weighs thus and so, and so on, but when you keep one part of yourself secret, that becomes the most important part of you."

And that is true, I think; it may be the most important truth of all. - Author: Merle Miller
Lgbtq quotes by Merle Miller
#58. The difference between the butch and the queen is rooted in the system of male supremacy. Gay male camp is based not simply on the incongruous juxtaposition of femininity and maleness, but also on the reordering of particular power relationships inherent in our society's version of masculinity and femininity. The most obvious cause for the minimum development of camp among lesbians was that masculinity was not and still isn't as incongruous as femininity in twentieth century American culture and therefore not as easily used as a basis for humor. Concomitantly although individual women might be able to sexually objectify a man, women has a group did not have the social power to objectify men in general. Therefore, such objectification could never be the basis for a genre of humor with wide appeal. But why didn't camp develop and thrive within the lesbian community itself? Because the structures of oppression were such that lesbians never really escaped from male supremacy. In lesbians' actual struggles in the bars or out on the streets, authority was always male. For queens to confront male authority was a confrontation between two men, on some level equals. The queen was playing with male privilege, which was his by birthright. For women to confront male authority is to break all traditional training and roles. Without a solid organization of all women, this requires taking on a male identity, beating men at their own game. Passive resistance or the fist is most appropriate f - Author: Joan Nestle
Lgbtq quotes by Joan Nestle
#59. Falling in love with another human is terrifying. As our language insists, romantic love is always preceded by a fall, the necessity of losing control and potentially hurting yourself in the process of connecting with another - Author: Vivek Shraya
Lgbtq quotes by Vivek Shraya
#60. Gay, straight, bi - labels, schmabels. - Author: Olley White
Lgbtq quotes by Olley White
#61. I'm queer. But why would people get so upset about something that feels so good? Me being a queer can't hurt anyone, why should it be such a terrible thing? Makes no sense. - Author: Rita Mae Brown
Lgbtq quotes by Rita Mae Brown
#62. Every single courageous act of coming out chips away at the curse of homophobia. Most importantly it's destroyed within yourself, and that act creates the potential for its destruction where it exists in friends, family and society. - Author: Anthony Venn-Brown
Lgbtq quotes by Anthony Venn-Brown
#63. This is how we reveal ourselves: these tiny flashes of discomfort, the reactions we can't hide. - Author: Christina Lauren
Lgbtq quotes by Christina Lauren
#64. It's the apocalypse, but we're still here, huddled on top of an upside-down world, waiting for the end, not realizing we're in the epilogue. - Author: Halo Scot
Lgbtq quotes by Halo Scot
#65. Do you dwell on everyone's junk when you meet them? Like, all you do all day long is think about dicks and janes? Is that your thing, Bailey? You can't stop thinking about what's in everyone's pants? - Author: Brie Spangler
Lgbtq quotes by Brie Spangler
#66. Long after you go down
and the vessel rusts apart

your bones sunken
buried in the ocean floor

Lgbtq quotes by Kristin Elizabeth Clark
#67. Really, we're just a microcosm of the human condition. Whether we're here a day, a month, a year, fifty years - our time on this earth is finite." This time he turned to Brendan. "Life isn't a dress rehearsal, as they say. This is our chance to discover things we might have only dreamed of before. - Author: Claire Thompson
Lgbtq quotes by Claire Thompson
#68. Cosmopolitanism seeks a _we_ that does not rely on the exclusion of _others_ but, instead, recognizes and confirms each other as part of the planetary _we_. The cosmopolitan _we_ is not grounded in a monolithic sameness but in a constant alterity and _ethical singularity_ of each individual human person regardless of one's national origin and belonging, religious affiliation, gender, race and ethnicity, class ability, or sexuality. - Author: Namsoon Kang
Lgbtq quotes by Namsoon Kang
#69. I like you,' I say. But when I look over, I see that these words aren't enough; they don't clear away the expression on his face. 'And I know your church doesn't allow that kind of feeling. - Author: Christina Lauren
Lgbtq quotes by Christina Lauren
#70. You're the creator of your own future. Get to writing. - Author: Ashley Brooke Robbins
Lgbtq quotes by Ashley Brooke Robbins
#71. People think that LGBTs adopting children will hurt them, but it's not being in loving homes that hurts children most. - Author: DaShanne Stokes
Lgbtq quotes by DaShanne Stokes
#72. I am small.
So are stars from a distance. It's all a matter of perspective. - Author: C. Kennedy
Lgbtq quotes by C. Kennedy
#73. It's important to remember that having a conversation about us (LGBT) without us will usually be a recycling or preconceived ideas and misconceptions.
Can you imagine a group of male church leaders discussing the role of women in the church without females present. We would call that misogyny. Or church leadership discussing indigenous issues without ever consulting with indigenous people themselves to get insight into what their life experience is really all about. We would call that white supremacy/racism/elitism. The church has done a great deal of talking about us but rarely has spoken with us. So when church leaders discuss LGBT people, relationships and the community without speaking with or spending time getting to know LGBT people it does beg the question why. What is there to fear? Why the exclusion? Is this another evidence of homophobia?
It's time for the church to invite LGBT people into the conversation. For some this is a conversation about their thoughts and beliefs but for us it is about who we are. You can ask questions. What was it like to sit in church and hear the word abomination to describe your orientation. What was it like to get to the point of coming out knowing you might be rejected by those you've loved and a church you've served.? How did you find resolution of your Christian beliefs and your sexuality? In listening you will learn.
That's why it's so important to remember. No conversation about us, without us. - Author: Anthony Venn-Brown OAM
Lgbtq quotes by Anthony Venn-Brown OAM
#74. Living in a world of darkness doesn't mean we must surrender, but to survive, we need to occasionally unleash the diva from within. - Author: Skye High
Lgbtq quotes by Skye High
#75. I've been going to the library, looking up our history. There's a ton of it in anthropology books, a ton of it, Ruth. We haven't always been hated. Why didn't we grow up knowing that? - Author: Leslie Feinberg
Lgbtq quotes by Leslie Feinberg
#76. Have you thought about the Coming Out Thing? It gets complicated when you bring religion into the equation. Technically, Jews and Episcopalians are supposed to be gay-friendly, but it's hard to really know how that applies to your own parents. Like, you read about these gay kids with really churchy Catholic parents, and the parents end up doing PFLAG and Pride Parades and everything. And then you hear about parents who are totally fine with homosexuality, but can't handle it when their own kid comes out. You just never know. - Author: Becky Albertalli
Lgbtq quotes by Becky Albertalli
#77. Henry Gerber, writing in 1932 under the pseudonym Parisex, responded to an article in The Modern Thinker that condemned homosexuality. "Is not the psychiatrist again putting the cart before the horse in saying that homosexuality is a symptom of the neurotic style of life?" he insisted. "Would it not sound more natural to say that the homosexual is made neurotic because his style of life is beset by thousands of dangers? - Author: George Chauncey
Lgbtq quotes by George Chauncey
#78. A conversation in which the two parties have different beliefs should never begin with the intention of converting the other party to your own beliefs. Every worthwhile conversation's goal should be to understand the other person's opinions and help them understand your own. - Author: Emily Eskowich
Lgbtq quotes by Emily Eskowich
#79. Girls who like each other have a different energy. More intense. Furtive. They're part of a secret world. They speak in code, like spies. Everything has a hidden meaning. - Author: Leah Reader
Lgbtq quotes by Leah Reader
#80. Compromise is often necessary [in politics], but entire marginalized identities are not expendable chess pieces. - Author: Sarah McBride
Lgbtq quotes by Sarah McBride
#81. We assume that anything that is new to us is new to human society as a whole, and that if we don't see it reflected in history textbooks and in recent memory then it cannot have existed for long. - Author: C.N. Lester
Lgbtq quotes by C.N. Lester
#82. Unless we filter all of our contemplation of the Hebrew and Christian scriptures through the person of Christ, the words are impenetrable. And as our first week's study informed us, the person of Jesus is love. We will revisit this truth throughout the entirety of this book, because it is the key to every argument you face about LGBTQ+ issues. - Author: Suzanne DeWitt Hall
Lgbtq quotes by Suzanne DeWitt Hall
#83. Funny how any sentence that started with "honestly" usually wasn't. - Author: Jay Bell
Lgbtq quotes by Jay Bell
#84. I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women, and heterosexual men and women marrying another are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties. And quite frankly, I don't see much of a distinction beyond that. - Author: Joe Biden
Lgbtq quotes by Joe Biden
#85. He's not recruiting me to the oiled-up Gay Bliss Club of Northern Utah, but to the LDS Church. - Author: Christina Lauren
Lgbtq quotes by Christina Lauren
#86. The conservative ideology sees LGBT rights as an affront to the traditional way of life, for some reason. We are attacked as phonies, pretenders, even perverts, just for being who we are. There are people who wish for us to go back into the shadows, the closet, never to return.

Many of these people who wish to deny us our very legitimacy, who denounce us as mentally ill deviants, spend an hour each week paying homage to an ever-present, yet non-interventionist man in the sky. They go to courts across the land to defend their right to praise that uncorroborated deity at the expense of other people's civil liberties. To them, we the living, the transgender people who walk the earth, are fake, but the man up there, He is real. - Author: Ian Thomas Malone
Lgbtq quotes by Ian Thomas Malone
#87. When I opened the door, Andrew was standing there like a remedy for heart palpitations. Or maybe he made them worse. It was hard to tell. - Author: N.R. Walker
Lgbtq quotes by N.R. Walker
#88. The eye of youth is very observant. Youth has its moments of keen intuition, even normal youth
but the intuition of those who stand mi-way between the sexes is so ruthless, so poignant, so deadly, as to be in the nature of an added scourge ... - Author: Radclyffe Hall
Lgbtq quotes by Radclyffe Hall
#89. Lord knows why I find you attractive, Michael, when you generally smell like weed and broken hobo dreams. - Author: S.J. Goslee
Lgbtq quotes by S.J. Goslee
#90. Passing Proposition 8 did not stop LGBTQ couples from going to sleep that night with their partners. What it did accomplish, however, was remind the gay community once again that they are not looked at as equals, that the God of so many does not love them. - Author: Timothy Kurek

Lgbtq quotes by Madeline Miller
#92. That I was a boy, but it was not as simple as me wanting to be called he. That I liked being called he and him. But that I would've liked being called she and her sometimes, too, if it didn't let everyone settle into the assumption that I was a girl. I had never been a girl, would never be a girl... - Author: Anna-Marie McLemore

#96. Or his senior year, when he got drunk and made out with Liam in his twin bed for an hour, and he didn't have a sexual crisis about it - that had to mean he was straight, right? Because if he were into guys, it would have felt scary to be with one, but it wasn't. - Author: Casey McQuiston

Lgbtq quotes by Cassandra Clare
#101. I think, for one, the LGBTQ community is just a paragon of leadership, of standing up and saying "these are our rights, and we deserve them." As a model of activism, it's so wonderful what the community has been able to achieve towards goals like marriage equality. - Author: Jill Stein

#107. If you are a LGBTQ person, if you're going to travel somewhere, you do need to be mindful of where you're going, particularly depending on the country. That's just something unfortunately you need to think about. It's something you need to think about if you're a woman, it's something to think about particularly if you're a trans woman, and the problems a lot of trans people face when they're travelling. - Author: Ellen Page

Lgbtq quotes by Nina LaCour
#118. In fact, the word transition seems to me to be used incorrectly. Most people use it to mean going from one identity to another, such as with surgery or the use of hormones. I understand it to mean that the person has the other identity already and the transition involves the perceptions of society aligning with that identity. In this "word flip" it is not the person who is transitioning but society, which is transitioning its perceptions of that person. - Author: Lori B. Girshick
Lgbtq quotes by Lori B. Girshick
#119. 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. - Author: Cristina Marrero

#121. I can't read him. I can't grasp him. I have no idea what he's thinking and if he's messing with me or if he really is this good, but never before have I wanted so fiercely to learn forward and put my mouth on someone's neck, begging them to want me. - Author: Christina Lauren
Lgbtq quotes by Christina Lauren
#122. Suicide. This is the exact opposite of last time, for this time I'm experiencing a kind of pleasure in life, in being alive, a pleasure in living that I've never experienced before, and I'm hopeful and confident that I can become someone with dignity. I know now why I couldn't change certain characteristics and certain things about myself, but it's not a problem anymore. Certain pathways I failed to open in the past have now opened. My whole self is radiating light. I see with clarity. I understand the cause and effect of the last year. What I had imagined I've now attained. It's as if I can see my life right in front of my eyes, and all I have to do is reach out and draw it in... Now I don't feel the acute pain I felt before; I feel enlightened, at peace. It's as if I've instantly found the secret of "Suffering", how to bear it and how to endure it... Yes, this time I've decided to kill myself not because I can't live with suffering and not because I don't enjoy being alive. I love life passionately, and my wish to die is a wish to live...

Yes, I've chosen suicide. The endpoint of this process of "Forgiveness". Not to punish anyone or to protest a wrong. I've chosen suicide with a clarity I've never possessed before, with a rational resolve and sense of calm, in order to pursue the ultimate meaning of my life, act on my belief about the beauty between two people... I take complete responsibility for my life, and even if my physical body disappears upon death, I do - Author: Qiu Miaojin

#123. Love is a wild fire that cannot be contained by any mere element known to man. - Author: Cristina Marrero
Lgbtq quotes by Cristina Marrero
#124. When you hear of Gay Pride, remember, it was not born out of a need to celebrate being gay.
It evolved out of our need as human beings to break free of oppression and to exist without being criminalized, pathologized or persecuted.
Depending on a number of factors, particularly religion, freeing ourselves from gay shame and coming to self-love and acceptance, can not only be an agonising journey, it can take years.
Tragically some don't make it.
Instead of wondering why there isn't a straight pride be grateful you have never needed one.
Celebrate with us. - Author: Anthony Venn-Brown
Lgbtq quotes by Anthony Venn-Brown

Lgbtq quotes by Leah Raeder
#126. they want us to believe that to be queer, to be trans, to be confused, to be questioning is
equivalent to being a sinner
but conveniently forget that we are all sinners in God's eyes
that every day we all sin
that sin dates all the way back to Adam and Eve, and ever since then we have all been
deemed sinners in God's eyes
but sinners can be forgiven - Author: Courtney Carola

#128. The plumes on Evangeline's mother's hat trembled as she gazed sternly at Anna, perched in her sash window, examining an unlit cigar. "You!" she shouted. "You are a disgrace!

Anna burst out laughing. - Author: Cassandra Clare

Lgbtq quotes by De Philosopher DJ Kyos
#136. the man i went on a date with did more than try to "cure me" of my asexuality
it's funny because i never thought someone's penis would be considered an antidote of any kind
and i don't think that's what my doctor meant when he told me i needed more Vitamin D in my diet
but apparently my sexuality was enough of a diagnosis for him to decide to play doctor with me
maybe he should've put his stethoscope up to my mouth instead of between my breasts
maybe then he would've heard me when i told him to stop it - Author: Courtney Carola
Lgbtq quotes by Courtney Carola

#138. Dear Rocky,
Here I am taking my pencil in my hand to say hello, hoping you are in the best of health, both physically and mentally. As for me, I am fine thanks to Almighty God.
The weather in the valley is in the shits. It's been raining since Thanksgiving and here it is almost at the end of December and it's still raining. Instead of growing a prick, I think I'm going to grow a tail, like a tadpole. Ha, ha, ha! - Author: Rocky Gamez

Lgbtq quotes by Brie Spangler
#140. Boo-Boo Pennyroyal did not like her male and female slaves to mingle. In the operas that she adored, young people brought together in tragic circumstances were forever falling in love with each other and then throwing themselves off things (cliffs, mostly, but sometimes battlements, or rooftops, or the brinks of volcanoes). Boo-Boo was fond of her slaves, and it pained her to think of them plummeting in pairs off the edges of Cloud 9, so she nipped all tragic love affairs firmly in the bud by forbidding the girls and boys to speak to one another. Of course, young people being what they were, girls sometimes fell in love with other girls, or boys with boys, but that never happened in the operas, so Boo-Boo didn't notice. - Author: Philip Reeve
Lgbtq quotes by Philip Reeve
#141. To me, flexibility means that I truly understand the dynamics of sexuality including my own. I acknowledge my attractions but stay open to their movement. It's not black or white. It's not said and done. It's flexible. - Author: Ashley Mardell
Lgbtq quotes by Ashley Mardell
#142. Jesus Christ, creator of the universe and all that is in it, cares about our smallest needs. He cares if we are wet and cold. He cares if we are hungry and discouraged. He cares if we are frightened or lonely. He cares if we are marginalized and excluded from Christian fellowship. - Author: Suzanne DeWitt Hall

Lgbtq quotes by Ashley Mardell
#145. they want us to believe that the way we love is wrong

"and a man who will lie down with a male in a woman's bed
both of them have made an abomination."

but conveniently forget how David's and Jonathan's souls were knit together,
that the two of them had a bond between the two of them that was too strong to ignore
that the two of them formed a covenant with one another.

"the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David,
and Jonathan loved him as his own soul."

that David preferred the love of Jonathan to the love of any woman - Author: Courtney Carola

#148. This is a problem because as we've established, not everyone meet society's requirements for being "male" or "female". Being repeatedly forced to misidentify their sex and/or rarely being acknowledged, can cause intersex people to feel isolated, invalid, and erased. - Author: Ashley Mardell

#149. 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
Lgbtq quotes by Courtney Carola
#150. Nowadays, we are assigning gender even before birth. We have become socially conditioned to participate in the gendering of children at the earliest possible moment - whenever a sonogram can identify its genitalia. Gender-reveal parties have become a trendy way to celebrate the child's fate, steering them down a life of masculine or feminine ideals before ever meeting them. - Author: George Matthew Johnson
Lgbtq quotes by George Matthew Johnson
#151. i can love
as Aristotle
who coined the term "philía"

it isn't that hard of a concept to grasp
but because i am not grasping someone else
you think there is something wrong with me
but i am fine - Author: Courtney Carola
Lgbtq quotes by Courtney Carola
#152. The thing is we never needed anyone's consent to get married. What is happening is that the established powers are starting realize how much of jack asses they have looked like for not acknowledging our marriages and our human rights and we are starting to receive the rights we were always entitled too. Therefore, no one is "giving" or "allowing" us anything. We are simply and powerfully starting to reclaim what has always been ours. The moralistic patriarchy has made this a long and bloody battle, but the concept has always been simple and I am glad it is finally sinking in. We are here, we have always been here, we are not going anywhere, and trying to suppress us under false puritanical mores is not smart and will not make us go away. It's not just about the LGBTQ communities but all suppressed minorities. If you listen closely you can here the subtle but real shifting of the winds to a more enlightened and egalitarian society. It won't happen without work, and it won't happen without intelligence. Never stop learning, never stop growing, never be ashamed because you are different, and never stop knowing that there is power in community. - Author: Kent Marrero
Lgbtq quotes by Kent Marrero
#153. There is an artist my mother loved, Juan Gabriel, who was once asked in an interview if he was gay. His reply: What's understood need not be said. I remember how Mami's eyes fluttered to me like a bee on a flower acknowledging the pollen is sweet. - Author: Elizabeth Acevedo

Lgbtq quotes by Nora Sakavic
#158. Thank you," he said. Allison waved his thanks off with an airiness that didn't match her tense expression. "No, thank you. You just closed three outstanding bets and made me five hundred bucks," she said when Nathaniel glanced at her. "I'd rather find out exactly why and when you two hooked up than think about this awfulness any longer, so let's talk about that on the ride back instead." Aaron's gaze bounced from Allison to Nathaniel to Andrew. He was waiting for them to shoot her down, Nathaniel thought, and his expression went slack when neither one of them did. Nicky opened his mouth, then closed it again without a word and stared at Nathaniel. Kevin, surprisingly, didn't react at all. - Author: Nora Sakavic
Lgbtq quotes by Nora Sakavic
#159. ...you're not the first I've interrupted by mistake. You've not shocked me, and you've not surprised me either."
I look up at him too quickly, and my vision swims. He puts a steadying hand on my shoulder.
"If you thought I was ignorant as to the nature of your relationship with Mr. Newton, you may need to reexamine your concept of appropriate of physical fondness between friends."
I nod, trying to pretend its fine when really my muscles are clenched, and I'm fighting the urge to run. I don't want to have this conversation. I don't know where it's going, but my instincts tell me to scoot away from it. I can feel my shoulders rise, and perhaps he notices for he lets his his hands fall away, and instead, folds them in his lap.
Perhaps its only in my own mind, but it feels like a deliberate gesture, as though he's putting his hands away to show he won't raise them against me.
"We aren't that obvious," I say, and when Scipio gives me a pointed look I add," I know plenty of lads who are fond without being unchaste.
"But its clear you're not those lads."
I'm not sure he hears the way my breath hitches for he quickly adds, "which is fine. Who gives a fig for chastity anyways."
He laughs at his own joke, glancing over at me like he hoping I might join in. I wonder suddenly if this is what it's meant to be like with a father and a son and a first real love. - Author: Mackenzi Lee

Lgbtq quotes by Cheryl B. Evans
#161. I don't think I chose to be gay, if that's what you mean. In fact, I didn't choose a lot of things. Like being the son of the president. Or coming to Inverness. Or even being in the closet, really. All in all, I'd say I have about as much free will as an espresso maker. - Author: Tim Floreen
Lgbtq quotes by Tim Floreen
#162. The things that I love about you aren't going to go away when you go on your book tour, and they're not going to go away when you go on your mission. I'll still be here, and I'll still be thinking about all those things. I'll still be working on being a better person, a better friend, a better son. I'll still be wondering what it would be like to be a better boyfriend for you. And you will be on your mission, thinking about how much you wish your weren't gay. - Author: Christina Lauren
Lgbtq quotes by Christina Lauren
#163. In the same way I had managed to overlook the truth of my state's history in the rosy optimism of my worldview, I never really had cause to notice my whiteness. I didn't have any impetus to until November 8, 2016, happened. I thought that I understood privilege; I'd studied it in college and pushed against injustice where I saw it. I volunteered for organizations like Planned Parenthood, argued in the face of conservatives who rolled their eyes at Black Lives Matter, and marveled in my gorgeous awakening. But my whiteness, up until that day in November, had allowed me to believe we were ultimately moving forward. Yes, people of color were being shot in the street, conservative lawmakers were trying to push anti-LGBTQ legislation in other states and on the national level, but we were waking up. We had a black president and the recognition of same-sex marriage, and my little activist heart, in all of its whiteness, just believed that things always get better. Because in whiteland, that's the way it goes. The bad guy will always lose. But then we elected the bad guy, and everything I've ever believed to be fundamentally true was incinerated and pissed on.

#165. you're such a pretty girl" they say
but they don't see the way she recoils back from the world
as if it's coming for her like fire, as if it burns
and it does
it burns like a flame that no one can see
so white hot and intense that it rivals the sun
it melts her skin and eats away at her flesh
until she is nothing
nothing but a skeleton that no one can call
a girl - Author: Courtney Carola

#174. I'm afraid of men because it was men who taught me to fear. I'm afraid of men because it was men who taught me to fear the word girl by turning it into a weapon they used to hurt me. I'm afraid of men because it was men who taught me to hate and eventually destroy my femininity.

#180. When are you going to get a fella?" Lily asks Rose after a year or two of dancing. "I have one who wants to take me kissing, but I think I should wait for you to have one."
Rose flushes. "I don't think I'll ever have a fella."
"Why not?" Lily bristles. "We're plenty pretty."
"I don't like the look of them," Rose says.
Lily purses her lips at the dance floor, appraising.
After a moment long, Rose says, "Any of them."
Lily looks at her a long time, as Rose tries not to hyperventilate.
Then Lily shrugs and says, "Well, then it's you who should have learned to lead, isn't it?" and when Rose clasps Lily's hand, she clasps it back.
