“I feel like things sometimes have to swing in a certain way in order to swing back. You know, everybody has gone through this. Every group of people that has been discriminated has gone against these times, and it’ll be fine. You can’t think anything else, or else you’re doomed. I do believe that things will swing back and that even conservative people will think this has gone too far now. All I can think about is what I do, which is make people happy and forget about all that stuff. Then people that do that for a living – activists and politicians – are gonna keep fighting, and I can keep being a representative of what is supposedly not normal and try to remind people that we are normal.”
– Ellen DeGeneres on the 2004 election as quoted in the Jan. 18, 2005 issue of The Advocate.
“We know that intolerance is an unfortunate fact of American life. This proposal will take away tools that that have helped bring about fairness and diversity.”
– Sr. Monica Kostielney, R.S.M, president and CEO, Michigan Catholic Conference, speaking in opposition to the proposal to eliminate Affirmative Action in Michigan, as quoted in a Jan. 6 press release from Citizens for a United Michigan.

“My identity as a journalist who is part of the Asian-American and LGBT communities reveals much about society’s fault lines and how they play out in the newsroom and coverage. … It’s both a gift and a responsibility to have a special insight into communities that are too often rendered invisible.”
– Helen Zia as quoted in the fall 2004 issue of NLGJA Outlook.
“I’m walking a fine line as a black man and an even finer line as a black gay man. But my films are about honesty. I certainly couldn’t live a lie.”
– Film producer Lee Daniels (“Monster’s Ball” and “The Woodsman”) as quoted in the Dec. 2004 issue of Out Magazine.
“I went to college, so of course. That’s what you do in college.”
