Big Telling

Both 'The Wire' and 'Queer as Folk' had a big scope. They were panoramas, telling ambitious stories about two cities, Baltimore and Manchester, for the first time.

- Aidan Gillen

Wheel Putting

America I'm putting my queer shoulder to the wheel.

- Allen Ginsberg

Supremacy Acceptable

Women's Studies, Queer Studies, African-American Studies, and Chicano Studies all produce culturally acceptable separatist and supremacy mind-sets and countenance movements that resemble those of white supremacists.

- Andrew Breitbart

Game Knew

When I was working at Trio, I was pitched 'Queer Eye for the Straight Guy' and I knew, whoever gets this, this is a game changer. When I started at Bravo in 2005, it was a hit, and Season 1 of 'Project Runway' was in postproduction.

- Andy Cohen

Advice Almighty

It's queer how ready people always are with advice in any real or imaginary emergency, and no matter how many times experience has shown them to be wrong, they continue to set forth their opinions, as if they had received them from the Almighty!

- Anne Sullivan

Work Going

Frankly, if people aren't going to cast me because I'm queer, than I don't want to work with them.

- Anthony Rapp

Explain Some

I'm so unmaterialistic in every way. If you saw my apartment, it would explain a lot, I think. It's not so much a mess, but it just needs to have some feng shui or a real 'Queer Eye' makeover or whatever.

- Ariel Pink

City Our

Many queer and trans people live - and lived - in our prison and jails, in our homeless shelters, in run-down houses and apartment buildings, and on the corners of every major city. Marriage equality doesn't help them; and the potential loss of momentum for trans/queer rights after this win could well hurt them.

- Chelsea Manning

Voice Our

We need to send a powerful message to the world in a unified voice: that we can fight for social justice for everyone, everywhere, and change the world, not just get married. We can continue to build our communities and address the root causes of queer and trans poverty and deaths.

- Chelsea Manning

Young Peers

When you're young and queer and closeted, you can end up in this place where you regard your straight peers as the enemy.

- Dan Savage

Role Prominent

The successes of the LGBT civil rights movement and the more prominent role openly gay people are playing in the public eye has actually turned up the temperature in middle schools and high schools for queer kids.

- Dan Savage

New More

I've seen things change and people forget: the history of Berlin, the history of queer struggle, the history of AIDS, the history of New York changing from an artistic powerhouse to more of a financial one now.

- John Cameron Mitchell

Living Evolved

When Man evolved Pity, he did a queer thing - deprived himself of the power of living life as it is without wishing it to become something different.

- John Galsworthy

Mountains Least

A queer fellow and a jolly fellow is the grasshopper. Up the mountains he comes on excursions, how high I don't know, but at least as far and high as Yosemite tourists.

- John Muir

Been Very

Of course I was bullied and of course I was called names - my last name is Weir. That's very, very close to 'weird,' or 'queer' and any of those words. But I've never been anyone to cry over spilled milk or be upset because kids don't like me, or people don't like me... It makes my skin stronger and thicker. And why cry? Your mascara runs.

- Johnny Weir

Change Very

For good and evil, man is a free creative spirit. This produces the very queer world we live in, a world in continuous creation and therefore continuous change and insecurity.

- Joyce Cary

Lesbian Would

I would say that I'm a feminist theorist before I'm a queer theorist or a gay and lesbian theorist.

- Judith Butler

Been Placed

'Moonlight' is a story that hasn't been told. Whether placed as queer black cinema or urban male cinema, the lack of coming-of-age films featuring people like Chiron and set in places like inner-city Miami is pronounced and unfortunate.

- Barry Jenkins

I Think Other

As a white queer person of a certain degree of economic privilege, I think that my ability to pass as straight is a privilege that other folk I know don't have. It's important to keep in mind who really is in the most trouble and to direct our attention to assisting those people.

- Ben Hopkins

Very About

For queer people, the personal is very political, just to talk about it in a public space. It's very political just to come out and take up that space and be like, 'This is my narrative. It's not an outsider narrative, and it's not a fetish narrative; it's just my story, and it's worth being told and listened to.'

- Ben Hopkins

Small I Think

I think that when you're queer, you grow up with these kinds of men who might have made you feel small because of who you are. They could be part of your family, or somebody on the street, or a teacher.

- Ben Hopkins

Think Other

I think the earnestness of what we're saying and what other bands like us are totally saying - or other queer bands - is 'We exist.'

- Ben Hopkins

Person Supposed

When you're a queer person put in the spotlight, you're supposed to have all the answers.

- Ben Hopkins

Listen Feel

If you listen to PWR BTTM, or to Gloss, If you look at me on stage, it can make you feel less alone. It makes you feel like you're a queer person and you have this singular power, but it's not like we're a brand. We're just real.

- Ben Hopkins

Horrible Things

Queer is invincible because people have tried everything - haven't they? What haven't they tried to do to queer people? And horrible things happened. But you never stop, because it's the truth of who you are.

- Ben Hopkins

Radical Lives

The most radical thing about our lives is getting to be in a visibly filled-out queer crowd every night.

- Ben Hopkins

Thought Going

What we do is provide a suggestion. We say, 'We're queer. We're going to do this; we're going to open up the space to queer thought.' People don't have to show up, but they do.

- Ben Hopkins

Deep Role

Because I didn't have any queer, lesbian, female role models I hated my own femininity and had to look deep within myself to create an identity that worked for me. Pop culture just doesn't hand us enough variety to choose from.

- Beth Ditto

Practical Mixed

There are certain queer times and occasions in this strange mixed affair we call life when a man takes his whole universe for a vast practical joke.

- Herman Melville

Think Like

Without community events like NewFest, I don't think we'd have a queer cinema in America.

- Ira Sachs

Been Films

My films might have been queer - because I was - but they were not gay.

- Ira Sachs

Grows Very

A boy's appetite grows very fast, and in a few moments the queer, empty feeling had become hunger, and the hunger grew bigger and bigger, until soon he was as ravenous as a bear.

- Carlo Collodi

Church Loves

When Queer Eye hit, the church told my mom they were praying for me. She said, God loves him too. And I support him 100 percent.

- Jai Rodriguez

Technology Other

Technology... is a queer thing. It brings you great gifts with one hand, and it stabs you in the back with the other.

- Carrie Snow

Other Half

It is hard to know what you are talking about in mathematics, yet no one questions the validity of what you say. There is no other realm of discourse half so queer.

- James Newman

Gay Folk

'Queer as Folk' is gay gay gay gay gay.

- Del Shores

Love Which

These names: gay, queer, homosexual are limiting. I would love to finish with them. We're going to have to decide which terms to use and where we use them. For me to use the word 'queer' is a liberation; it was a word that frightened me, but no longer.

- Derek Jarman

Imaginary Actual

It is a queer thing, but imaginary troubles are harder to bear than actual ones.

- Dorothy Dix

Eye Career

For myself, Queer Eye feeds more to my heart and my soul than as a platform for a career.

- Kyan Douglas

Think I Think

I think they do a great job on Queer as Folk.

- Laura Innes

Love Game

I love it now that a large minority of people who are handicapped prefer to call themselves crippled. This is all part of the game, like queer theory.

- Leslie Fiedler

Think I Think

The snappy way I would sum it up is not everyone is queer, but everyone has felt different. And I think that is something that people can really relate to in our music.

- Liv Bruce

Surrounded Very

In a way, a stage can be the safest place to be visibly queer and non-gender conforming because you're literally surrounded by witnesses. Any type of violence that a person might try to carry out on you, that's just not a very likely place to do it.

- Liv Bruce

Iowa Resembles

I care more about a 15-year-old queer kid in Iowa who wants to know that there's anything out there that resembles their experience and life than the hip queer person in Brooklyn.

- Liv Bruce

Think Shame

I do think that for a queer person to speak truthfully without shame about their own experiences is political.

- Liv Bruce

Feel Mine

I have many queer friends who I consider to be heroes of mine, and they feel the same way toward me.

- Liv Bruce

Myself Date

Lots of my writing can be accurately called lesbian, but I myself am queer and date people of all genders.

- Michelle Tea

Book Very

Of course it is very limiting to be labeled a lesbian or queer writer. We live in a homophobic culture, and even people who aren't hateful per se assume they won't get anything from a queer book.

- Michelle Tea

Been About

When I first started to write, I was aware of being queer, but I didn't write about it. Queer poems would probably not have been accepted by the editors I sent them to.

- Thom Gunn

Lenses Reduced

Any child knows that history can only be a reduced representation of reality, but it must be a true one, not distorted by queer lenses.

- Samuel E. Morison

Life Best

I figure this current era of history is the one with the best chance of quality of life for a black, female, disabled, middle-aged, queer person who's most comfortable not fitting in. The odds still aren't great, mind you. But I'll take my chances with the 21st century.

- Nalo Hopkinson

Doing Movie

I didn't know Charlie before doing the movie, but I was a huge fan of the British Queer as Folk.

- Nathan Lane

Very Bourgeois

And 'Queer Eye' is fascinating. It has a pinch-me-I'm-dreaming quality. It's very bourgeois, of course, and much more about the liberation of the consumer than the liberation of the democratic citizen.

- Tony Kushner

Love Been

Being queer you're supposed to adore figure skating. It's a sport, not an art. I love the costumes and hate the music and of course I worship Johnny Weir because so does he. Also he's real. It's a full gay thing and it always has been.

- Mark Morris

Love Anybody

The only queer people are those who don't love anybody.

- Rita Mae Brown

Equal Equal Rights

Equal rights for women and queer folks!

- Wangechi Mutu

Art Thee

All the world old is queer save thee and me, and even thou art a little queer.

- Robert Owen

Think I Think

I don't like to talk about that McCanles affair. It gives me a queer shiver whenever I think of it, and sometimes I dream about it and wake up in a cold sweat.

- Wild Bill Hickok

Love Very

I'm just trying to blur this very clear line we've drawn and are drawing over and over and over again between communities. Saying those are queer films and those are films. I would love for that line to disappear. For that frontier to be abolished once and for all.

- Xavier Dolan
