"The problem is that today, as I write this, young men and women whose behaviors, choices or attitudes are not deemed 'man enough' or 'normal' are being subjected to all kinds of abuse from verbal to physical to societal. They are being demeaned and threatened because they don't fit the group's idea of what a 'real man' or a 'real woman' are supposed to look like, act like and feel like."—Comedian Jason Alexander apologizes for calling Cricket "gay" on Twitter, June 3.

"I get a lot of mail—but I don't get many bad letters—but I got a woman the other day that was so upset with me because they said, 'How do you feel about the gay-marriage thing?' and my answer to that is, 'I really don't care with whom you sleep, I just care what kind of a decent human being you are.' I figure all the rest of it is your business and not mine. And not hers, incidentally."—Golden Girl Betty White to the Huffington Post, June 12.

"I think people who are well-adjusted are not going to be interested in this story. Fortunately, there are a lot of people who are not well-adjusted."—Graphic novelist Alison Bechdel on her latest book, to the Advocate, June 15.

"It is inevitable that in any movement there are people who are unwilling to change with the times. I am of the older generation of gay men. There seem to be men of this generation who think that there is a holy grail of gay equality that, once discovered, will admit them to the world of white male privilege from which they have been so unjustly excluded."—LBGT Activist Richard Lyon to the Huffington Post, June 14.

"What I do know is I couldn't be happier than I am right now. And that has very little to do with me being transgender. It has everything to do with me being true."—Transgender actress Alexandra Billings to the Huffington Post, June 14.

"Two men, two women should be able to get married. It's not about your sex, it's about love and commitment. No state has the right to tell someone, "No, this is not legal in the eyes of the state." That is the most ridiculous statement in the world when you then go and preach that this is a free country."—Actress Shannen Doherty to the Huffington Post in May.
