“God Forbid (if Taylor Hicks was) gay, and all these people in Mississippi who voted for him are like, ‘Oh my God, I voted for a queer.'”
— Justin Timberlake talking about American Idol in Fashion Rocks Magazine, September issue

“One really interesting thing to me is the intimacy between two men. How do you be intimate with another man who isn’t gay and you’re not gay? You’re not lovers, but really have that soul mate-y feel with each other.”
— Julian McMahon, who plays over-sexed plastic surgeon Christian Troy on FX show “Nip/Tuck,” in the Sept. 26 issue of the Advocate

“A little announcement (that you’re gay) and you’re everywhere. … I’m totally happy, I’m a completely different person, I think. It just sucks with all the lies you have to tell. … It’s been crazy because everyone’s paying attention to what I’m doing now. … Everyone’s been very supportive.”
— Former ‘N Sync singer Lance Bass to Warner Brothers Studios’ ExtraTV.com, Aug. 29.

“I think if they want to get married, God bless them. Gay marriage is probably 1 percent of the population, so it’s not like it’s going to be an epidemic. Hey, trust me, I’m never going to kiss you and say, ‘Chris, you’re sexy.'”
— Former National Basketball Association Most Valuable Player Charles Barkley on Fox SportsNet’s CMI: The Chris Meyers Interview, Sept. 3. Meyers is considering a run for governor of Alabama.

“There are people who think that I’m strident and bossy and much too New York and left-wing liberal. You get what you paid for, and there’s no way that I’m going to change.”
— Rosie O’Donnell to Newsweek, Sept. 11.

“Instead of waging efforts to change hearts and minds, gay movement leaders have tried to bludgeon opponents and pursued a strategy where a very small minority would impose its will on a vast majority through judicial fiat. While activists relied on the courts for victory, supporters of traditional marriage took the debate to the ballot box and won every single time. A failed strategy appears to have put gay marriage out of reach for a long time to come.”
— Jeff Gannon, the man at the center of that White House press corps/gay-prostitution brouhaha, in his regular column in the gay newspaper Washington Blade, Sept. 1.
