HomoQuotable – Morrissey

“Obama has mystified me because he doesn’t appear to support black people when they need it most. Ferguson being an obvious example. If Michael Brown had instead been one of Obama’s daughters, I don’t think Obama would be insisting that the nation support the so-called security forces! How can they be called security forces if they make the people feel ...

HomoQuotable – Armistead Maupin

“I’m the only gay man I know who has never been to Fire Island. I have not made a point of staying away — its charms are legendary, of course — but the occasion has simply never presented itself. Now, it’s quite likely that I will remain forever virginal in that regard. Or at least until these guys are no ...

HomoQuotable – Giorgio Armani

“A homosexual man is a man 100%. He does not need to dress homosexual. When homosexuality is exhibited to the extreme – to say, ‘Ah, you know I’m homosexual,’ – that has nothing to do with me. A man has to be a man. I don’t like muscle boy. Not too much gym. I like somebody healthy, somebody solid, who ...

HomoQuotable – Dan Savage

“Dear Dr. Carson, If being gay is a choice, prove it. Choose it. Choose to be gay yourself. Show America how that’s done, Ben, show us how a man can choose to be gay. Suck my dick. Name the time and the place and I’ll bring my dick and a camera crew and you can suck me off and win ...

HomoQuotable – Noah Michelson

“From Grindr profiles that demand ‘masc only’ to men like [Russell] Tovey who think their masculinity — however manufactured, however antithetical to who they truly were when they landed on this planet — is what makes them marketable or desirable, our obsession with what it means to be a man and what it means to fall short of that is ...

HomoQuotable – Russell Tovey

“I feel like I could have been really effeminate, if I hadn’t gone to the school I went to. Where I felt like I had to toughen up. If I’d have been able to relax, prance around, sing in the street, I might be a different person now. I thank my dad for that, for not allowing me to go ...

HomoQuotable – Sally Kohn

“I’m gay. And I want my kid to be gay, too. Many of my straight friends, even the most liberal, see this logic as warped. It’s one thing for them to admit that they would prefer their kids to be straight, something they’ll only begrudgingly confess. But wanting my daughter to be a lesbian? I might as well say I ...

HomoQuotable – Matt Moore

“Am I now straight? Am I now normal? Am I now free from same sex desires and attracted solely to women? No, no and no. My heart was changed instantaneously when I trusted in Christ and began to follow Him, but my mind was not. I now have a heart that genuinely loves God and desires to worship Him, but ...

HomoQuotable – Steve Friess

“[G]ay activists are as responsible as anyone for the fact that a large swath of Americans who thought they were OK with gays are finding themselves surprised by their own reactions to what they’re starting to see [on television]. This is, after all, a civil rights movement that aggressively worked for many years to downplay the mechanics of gay sexual ...

HomoQuotable – Frank Bruni

“Ive been called many unpleasant things in my life, and I’ve deserved no small number of them. But I chafe at this latest label: A threat to your religious liberty. I don’t mean me alone. I mean me and my evidently menacing kind: men who have romantic relationships with other men and maybe want to marry them, and women in ...

HomoQuotable – Sara Gilbert

“I think if you’re on a show called My Husband’s Not Gay, then your husband’s gay. But I also think there is a reverse bullying in the gay community where you can’t do it a certain way and – I’m sure this is controversial – but I think if a guy is attracted to guys and he wants to try ...

HomoQuotable – Robert Oscar Lopez

“With unforeseen success has come, unfortunately, a lot of challenges for which I was not prepared. Due to some of these challenges, and in the interest of protecting contributors and correspondents, we have had to take down and archive the 2,000 posts that were published here; we have warehoused them somewhere safe but cannot leave them as open-source resources to ...

HomoQuotable – Greg Quinlan

“The [PFOX ‘ex-gay’] billboard speaks to the scientific fact that to quote the American Psychiatric Association, ‘there still remains no replicated scientific studies supporting any specific biological etiology for homosexuality.’ There is zero evidence that a person is born a homosexual. In fact, Dr. Francis Collins of the human genome project with the National Institute of Health, who was appointed ...

HomoQuotable – Robert Oscar Lopez

“Nowadays the American Left has so thoroughly drenched our campuses in a toxic ideology, a fascism posing as tolerance, that the pact is gone. There are moments when students come to me and say things that sound like the trustful conversations of old, but too many times now, they are playing some trick on me. Students lay sand traps, misrepresent ...

HomoQuotable – Dan Savage

“Look at Marcus Bachmann, Michele Bachmann’s husband. Anybody who has gaydar—anybody who has eyes—looks at him and sees a tormented closet case who has externalized his internal conflict and is abusing other people, doing his reparative-therapy bullshit. It’s so sad and pathetic. A lot of the self-destructive behaviors gay people are prone to drifting into are directed inward, and then ...

HomoQuotable – Frank Bruni

“One of the impediments to consensus is manifest on a plane: There’s little sense of a common good, no rules that everybody follows so that nobody gets a raw deal. Instead there’s an ethic of every passenger for himself or herself. The existence of, and market for, the Knee Defender, that device that prohibits the person in front of you ...

HomoQuotable – Andrew Caldwell

“First of all, I’m delivered. And when I was a homosexual, I never looked at an old man. I would never touch an old man. Like I said, I dated a couple of football players, I dated church people. So I would never ever date a old person. That’s not my type. That’s nasty. If folks want to know if ...

HomoQuotable – Andrew Sullivan

“If you run a public accommodation and use it to refuse service to a minority, you’re on the wrong side of the law (at least since the Civil Rights Movement). So why am I concerned by the latest case of a lesbian couple suing a family business that refused to rent out their property for a same-sex wedding? Simply because ...

HomoQuotable – Michelangelo Signorile

“The Benham brothers have attributes and just a general vibe that, for years, have translated as ‘gay.’ But obviously there are a lot of straight men, even homophobes, who now exhibit these characteristics, seemingly free to act on their creative instincts, more comfortable about it — precisely because of the queer movement’s challenge to conventional ideas about masculinity. Some of ...

HomoQuotable – Matt Stolhandske

“As a gay man, I should hate Melissa and Aaron Klein. They’re the Portland-based Christian bakery owners who, in 2013, refused to make a cake for a lesbian couple’s wedding. And despite their insistence that they’re only morally opposed to gay marriage, not gays, they make their disdain for equality quite clear: ‘I didn’t want to be a part of ...
