Regardless if we’re talking about actors, politicians, stars or just famous people, there is a large collection of quotes and ideas about love, equality, freedom and humanity to choose from. Let’s hear some of the most compelling ones:
From a religious point of view, if God had thought homosexuality is a sin, he would have not created gay people – Howard Dean.
People should be allowed to marry and gay marriage should be out there. If a man or a woman has a good partner and they love each other with their heart and soul, let them marry. I am very much for gay marriage. – Pierce Brosnan
Gay marriage will be universally accepted in time. But if I may be so bold as to say to gays and lesbians, don’t wait for that time to arrive. Just as my father and his generation did not ‘wait’ for their civil rights, nor should you. The toothpaste ain’t going back in the tube. The tide has turned – John Ridley
I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage. But when you start playing around with constitutions, just to prohibit somebody who cares about another person, it just seems to me that’s not what America’s about. Usually, our constitutions expand liberties, they don’t contract them. – Barack Obama
Everybody’s journey is individual. If you fall in love with a boy, you fall in love with a boy. The fact that many Americans consider it a disease says more about them than it does about homosexuality – James Baldwin
What is straight? A line can be straight, or a street, but the human heart, oh, no, it’s curved like a road through mountains – Tennessee Williams
There’s nothing wrong with being gay, so to deny it is to make a judgment – Keanu Reeves
It is great injustice to persecute homosexuality as a crime, and cruelty too – Sigmund Freud
There’s this illusion that homosexuals have sex and heterosexuals fall in love. That’s completely untrue. Everybody wants to be loved – Boy George
I’m a supporter of gay rights. And not a closet supporter either. From the time I was a kid, I have never been able to understand attacks upon the gay community. There are so many qualities that make up a human being…by the time I get through with all the things that I really admire about people, what they do with their private parts is probably so low on the list that it is irrelevant – Paul Newman.
