Gay Quotes

I always like to hear about what people think about being gay or others being gay. Here are some quotes from famous people and what they think about it…….

“We had gay burgles the other night. They broke in and rearranged the furniture” -Robin Williams

“A person once asked me, in a provocative manner, if i approved of homosexuality. I replied with another question: ‘Tell me: when God looks at a gay person, does he endorse the existence of this person with love, or reject and condemn this person?’ We must always consider the person.” -Pope Francis

“Rather than ignore those who choose to publish their opinions without actually talking to me, I am happy to dispel any rumors or misconceptions and am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man living my life to the fullest and feel most fortunate to be working with wonderful people in the business I love.” -Neil Patrick Harris

“Creativity has got to start with humanity and when you’re a human begin, you feel, you suffer. You’re gay, you’re sick, you’re nervous or whatever.” -Marilyn Monroe

“Anybody can be unhappy. We can all be hurt. You don’t have to be poor to need something or somebody. Rednecks, hippies, misfits-we’re all the same. Gay or straight? So what? It doesn’t matter to me. We have to be concerned about other people, regardless.” -Willie Nelson

“My thoughts on gay marriage are that everyone has the right to love and be loved, and that’s the position I take.” -Nick Jonas

“I think gay marriage should be between a man and a woman.” -Arnold Schwarzeneggar

“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 aint going back in the tube. The tide has turned.” -John Ridley

“You know, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender- people are people.” – Judith Light

I started at HIV Alliance as a volunteer, and in June, I became a Community Engagement Intern. I decided to intern at HIV Alliance because of all the great things I learned within this agency. HIV Alliance is expanding and I have been grateful to be apart of all of the excitement. I love helping people with protection methods, sexual health, and over all wellness within the community.

The great thing about HIV Alliance is that they never judge and are always accepting and helpful. I have been to many events provided by this organization than I have ever been to in my life. It is amazing how many people the Alliance reaches within the community.

Unzipped Alliance is finally up and running strong. The Unzipped Alliance Hotline is a great addition in expanding help towards people that have questions. I love the creativity the Outreach team has been doing. We hope to create cool buttons soon with creative mottos, such as, “Don’t be a fool, cover your tool.”  The Outreach team loves sexual health mottos and other catchy sayings.  I am excited to hear more from everyone!

Yet Another Editor For You To Meet

I started my time here at the Alliance as a volunteer about 6 months ago. I chose the alliance because I needed to feel good about how I was spending my time. I was done wasting my life on frivolous things. I was offered a staff position as the outreach prevention specialist, which I enthusiastically accepted! It has been one of the best decisions of my life up to this point. I am part of an amazing team that works diligently to bring out community together to support healthy sex lives and sexual well-being. And I am proud and honored to be part of this team.

I am very excited about the launch of Unzipped Alliance. We are always brainstorming ideas on how we can keep our community engaged in what it is we do and what we stand for. Trying to break down bias and judgments, and wanting people to take control of their sexual heath and have enough knowledge to make informed decisions on the things that out queer community faces. Now we have a forum to bring our fun and interesting ideas and thoughts to the community.

My hope is that we will be able to expand our reach and get people talking about issues that sometimes get swept under the rug, and to encourage people to come in and get tested. I am looking forward to bringing our new ideas to you and maybe some not so new ideas, but things that always need to be on the forefront of our minds as we move forward and grow as a community.

We want to hear from you, and get your ideas out there as well. Feedback is always welcome, how else are we supposed to know if we are excelling at our jobs!
