Today’s quotes are ones that I hesitated on including, mostly because every time I post things that deal with acceptance of the LGBTQ community, I get judged, unfriended, blocked, or worse. But, I opted to be brave and share today’s quotes as I found them supportive for those who are members of or show support for the LGBTQ community.
“Black doesn’t mean dangerous, white doesn’t mean trash, brown doesn’t mean smuggler, muslim doesn’t mean terrorist, woman doesn’t mean weak, and LGBTQ doesn’t mean sick. These are the fundamentals that we must realize if we are to build a just and humane society.” (Abhijit Naskar)
“Everybody’s journey is individual. If you fall in love with a man, you fall in love with a man. The fact that many Americans consider it a disease says more about them than it does about homosexuality.” (James Baldwin)
“Homophobia whether internalized or externalized is really fear; it’s not hatred, it’s fear. It’s fear of the truth about ourselves.” (Andrew Sullivan)
“Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood.” (Coretta Scot King)
“What’s unnatural is homophobia. Homo Sapiens is the only species in all of nature that responds with hate to homosexuality.” (Alex Sanchez)
Peace, love, light, and joy,
