– Openly gay Real World Philadelphia cast member Karamo on his father’s reaction to him being on the show, as quoted by the Nov. 2004 issue of Out Magazine.
“It remains puzzling to me that no one objects to my baptizing the children of gay parents, blessing their home, their car and their dog, yet I cannot bless the loving relationship which makes this family’s life possible without upsetting so many of our Anglican brothers and sisters.”
– Bishop John Bryson Chane of Washington, who helped consecrate Bishop Robinson and has blessed same-sex couples, as quoted by The New York Times, Oct. 19, 2004.
“When I read my endorsement of George W. Bush of four years ago, I see almost no inkling of what was about to happen and the kind of president Bush turned out to be.”

“You can be a decent, sober, intelligent Republican averse to all hyperbole and still hear what’s blowin’ in the wind: ‘DISASTER! THIS CLOWN IS A DISASTER!’ … Dear God, even the Log Cabin Republicans have given up on him.”

– Peter Sarsgaard on his love scene with Liam Neeson in the film “Kinsey,” as quoted by the Nov. 2004 issue of Out Magazine.
“I don’t have any issues with sexuality, ever. I’m an actor – you’re supposed to do that. You’re supposed to be free, and I want to expose myself to that process. It’s scary, of course, but it’s easier to kiss a man than to play a woman.”
– Gael Garcia Bernal on gay sex scenes, as quoted by the Nov. 2004 issue of Out Magazine.
