“There is still a significant amount of work to do and I look forward to the day when a person is never judged, discriminated or feared for their sexuality.”
“We must remember that our greatest strength is in our love of life and colors, beauty and music, dancing and joy. That is our secret weapon. That is something that the opposition does not have. Keep those things near and dear to your heart because in times of war that will sustain you.”
“You are the courageous heroes who have showed the rest of us what it means to be true and honest and stand up for each other — and to love that very thing about ourselves that might set us apart from others…
Day after day, I aspire to be as brilliant and brave as you are.”
“Pride is a strong word and one I don’t use lightly but there is no better word to represent and celebrate this incredible community of people.”
“All of you have made such a positive impact on my life, and I hope and pray that our world will continue to better understand that acceptance and tolerance are virtues that we can never have enough of.”
