‘I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.’ Dan Cathy, Chief Operating Officer of Chick-fil-A

‘Angie and I will consider tying the knot when everyone else in the country who wants to be married is legally able.’ Brad Pitt

‘Usually black women that look like me don’t engage in relationships like that.’ Florida Politician Jennifer Carrol’s defence against lesbian rumours.

‘I think I could be in love with a couple of members of one direction, I think Harry Styles has stolen my heart.’ Paul McDermott

‘When Massachusetts became the first state in the country to recognize equal marriage rights, I personally stood on the City Hall Plaza to greet same sex couples coming here to be married. It would be an insult to them and to our city’s long history of expanding freedom to have a Chick-fil-A across the street from that spot’. Boston Mayor Thomas Manino, an excerpt from his letter to Chick-fil-A.

‘They say that this country is free, and they say that this country is equal, but it is not equal if it’s “sometimes”…We need change now. We demand actions now.’ Lady Gaga

‘Your portrait (the only one) stands on my mantelpiece in my bedroom; the mantelpiece is opposite to the bed. How completely you have taken possession of my body. This is slavery with a vengeance.’

Words from Mahatma Gandhi’s letter to his alleged male lover – Kallenbach.
