"[L]et us not forget about what it meant when my husband appointed those two magnificent Supreme Court justices. And for the first time in history, our daughters and our sons watched three women take their seat on our nation's highest court… And let us not forget what their decisions—the impact those decisions will have on our lives for decades to come—on our privacy and security, on whether we can speak freely, worship openly, and, yes, love whomever we choose"—First Lady Michelle Obama in Metro Weekly, March 20.

"I sing songs about love, and just as people have a right to choose to listen to songs about love, I believe that people have a right to marry the person that they love. I won't give up until there's equality for all."—Singer/songwriter Jason Mraz, in Human Rights Campaign Commercial, March 21.

"Growing up in L.A., I can't say there is a typical gay guy. There are many different versions of gay men. Some have good style and some don't. It's not like just because you're gay you're fashionable. I would say to any man to just dress for themselves and be comfortable in their bodies and be confident no matter what."—Reality TV star Nicole Richie to the Advocate, March 27.

"Many bigots see you as being like a woman or wanting to be a woman, which gay men will internalize and see as negative. Feminism looks at that thought and says, 'What the f*ck is wrong with being a woman?' and pats you on the back, and even may give you a pair of heels to strut in. This part of feminism was and is to this day empowering. I needed to hear that message at 18, and I still need to hear it now."—Activist Zach Stafford in the Huffington Post, April 3.

"I'm a dummy about a lot of stuff, and I couldn't care less. And who I am is a laundry list of people, places, things, and random experiences I've collected in the 50 years I've been on the planet. I am undefinable. I am unattainable. I have found my voice, and I'm never again going to search for what I never really lost in the first place."—Trans actress Alexandra Billings in the Huffington Post, April 2.

"I want to see the president evolve because I believe that is right; marriage equality is morally right."—U.S. Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren, to the Washington Blade, March 21.
