Hamed Sinno

The concert itself for us was just magical. It felt like such a loving, happy audience. It's been really difficult, sort of hitting that high and then having it get perverted into what it is now.feedback

Dalia Abdel Hameed

People have their own circles, their own networks. People take care of each other.feedback

Hamed Sinno

Do I get that feeling of responsibility? Yes and no. I mean, I think it's something that's impossible to avoid once you're in the public eye, right? And I acknowledge that and I try to honor that as much as I can. But at the same time it's also something that, like, you need to figure out how to not carry it with you the whole time, because it becomes impossible to write anything the moment you feel like the rest of the world is implicated. You lose your voice the moment you start trying to speak for other people.feedback

Hamed Sinno

The amount of hate that you would be able to see on social media is a testament to how necessary it is to constantly have that conversation in the public domain.feedback

Hamed Sinno

We're talking about victimless actions between consenting adults, and this kind of hate is completely irrational. So on the one hand, that debate obviously needs to be happening. But on the other hand, it's also really important for us and for the LGBTQ-plus community to have access to images of itself that are self-authored, that are not coming from a place of hate and condemnation, that are just about people having their lives and doing their work and surviving.feedback

Hamed Sinno

We thought it was sort of important for them to look at that as one situation and to see how the media that's generated around a musical event can more often than not redefine what that musical event is.feedback

Alfredo Flores

And she's all about spreading a message, every single show she's encouraging so many young people to stand up for themselves. She's encouraging people to be who they are, she's such an advocate for the LGBT community, for feminism, for women. She isn't afraid to speak her mind.feedback

Sam Smith

I went up, and I mucked up my speech. I forgot to say 'Best Male Actor.' I basically said that I was the first gay person to ever win an Oscar. I obviously know I'm not but my brain and my mouth didn't work together. I mucked up.feedback

Sam Smith

It all started with a hip flask of tequila. We thought we had no chance of winning at all (for James Bond theme Writing's on the Wall), so I was just like, Let's get the party started...' And then we won. I went up and I mucked up my speech. I basically said I was the first gay person to ever win an Oscar. And I obviously know I'm not, but my brain and my mouth didn't work together. I saw him at the after party, and he was like, I've won an Oscar!' I was like, I'm sorry, I was young when you won your Oscar!feedback

Sam Smith

It all started with a hip flask of tequila. I wasn't happy with my performance and we thought we had no chance of winning at all. I mucked up my speech. I basically said I was the first gay person to ever win an Oscar…. Afterwards I saw Elton John at the after party and he was like, I've won an Oscar.feedback

Eddie Izzard

That includes those from LGBT, disabled and ethnic minority backgrounds, as well as those who have suffered from mental health issues. Gender equality and increasing working-class participation is also vital.feedback

Sam Smith

I remember, at the beginning of my career, being called a 'gay singer,' and I didn't want that. I wanted to be seen as a singer first, before people spoke about my private life. And now it's changed – I've changed. I realize that maybe I don't mind that title.feedback

Sam Smith

Oh, my god, I just buy everything – heels, dresses. We have a great time. Looking back on it, it was the fear of saying the wrong thing and offending … And I was 19 when I started writing the first album. I'd just moved to London from a village – I was literally the only gay in the village. I didn't know what I wanted to say.feedback

Sam Smith

People don't know this, but when I was 17, I remember becoming obsessed with Boy George and Marilyn [Monroe], and all that. There was one moment in my life where I didn't own a piece of male clothing, really. I would wear full make-up every day in school, eyelashes, leggings with Dr Martens and huge fur coats, for 2.5 years. I think they show my growth, my confidence. I feel like they show me. They show the gay guy I've become.feedback

Eddie Izzard

We need to bring an end to the ‘politics as usual’ that makes LGBT, minority ethnic and other members feel excluded from the party. I came out 32 years ago, and as anyone who had to come out as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender in the 1980s will tell you, it was a gruelling rite of passage. Back in 1985 it was tough, people telling me to hide who I was, saying very hurtful things to me, fighting me in the street – but I decided to take a stand with my life being open and honest.feedback

Joe Hagan

Jann is a very complicated guy. He has been brilliant in his life but he is unvarnished and that's not always great for him. But I knew that I had to get the real story. It was his schizophrenic nature – a polarity of vulnerability and rageful ambition – that drove the magazine. He was an antiwar liberal and a rapacious capitalist, naive and crafty, friend and enemy, straight and gay, editor and publisher.feedback

Sina Grace

Whether it's race, gender, sexuality, or something else people are born with, can't change, and are told is bad, they can relate to the mutants, who represent a safe place where they can be themselves and that's what people love about the characters.feedback

Sina Grace

Iceman tells bad jokes and I do too. He hides behind humor, which is something I can understand.feedback

Sina Grace

In a broad sense, the character's sexuality doesn't influence him as a superhero. It doesn't change the action and adventure or the fights. But his psychology does matter.feedback

Sina Grace

All I'm here to do, is try to tell an action story with major feels and some good fights.feedback

Sina Grace

I owe it to the canon and readership to create a very specific Marvel story. This book isn't my playground.feedback

Sina Grace

Life is short. At one point, I got sick, my grandmother died, and I hit a huge wall. I realized I needed to strip myself of everything else to see what I was made of–relationships, stuff–to find out what really matters.feedback

Sina Grace

The lines in the series that go like 'I have no son' or 'my son is dead,' were things my friends had to hear when they came out to their parents.feedback

Sina Grace

There have always been hints that he could be a weapon of mass destruction, but his powers have been stifled at times. If his mind can be freed, he'll tap into those powers.feedback

Robert Michael Morris

Nobody could be gay until I was too old to have any fun. I feel like the exact same thing is happening to me.feedback

Anastasia Kurteeva

When the election came out, it's like, who do you associate with more, as a gay person or as a Russian? I'm more concerned about gay issues than the Russian-American relationship.feedback

Collin Robinson

I was afraid Northern Virginia couldn't handle an LGBT candidate.feedback

Kyle Knight - Human Rights Watch

International outcry works. Neither Putin nor Kadyrov has much tolerance for gay people, but after all the outcry, they had a meeting where they publicly addressed the issue. That they even brought it up was a huge deal. Putin has to think about things like 'Do I want that kind of blood on my hands before hosting the World Cup?' After that meeting, the roundups more or less stopped.feedback

Ricky Gunawan

These communities have always been targeted by police, but we've seen this worsen since 2016, when a number of high-level politicians made statements portraying LGBT communities as immoral or a threat to the nation.feedback

Kyle Knight - Human Rights Watch

There are a lot of ways in which these crackdowns follow the same sequence of events. And there's reason to believe that what's happening in Tajikistan now is based on things their government there has learned from, say, what Azerbaijan just did.feedback

Kyle Knight - Human Rights Watch

It is easy to say that these particular people are spreading disease, that they are foreigners or sinners. From a starting point of ignorance, prejudice is an easy next step.feedback

Jed York

I would say living in California and opening my mind to talking to people that aren't necessarily like me. Growing up in Youngstown, Ohio – Youngstown is not the most progressive place in the world. …. So for me to meet with the LGBT community. For me to meet with folks that have different racial backgrounds and different ethnic backgrounds, different socioeconomic backgrounds. Everything starts with conversation and the more you can have conversations, the more you can see where other people are coming from. And I think the more enlightened you can be.feedback

Owen Diaz

That was probably one of the lowest points in my life. I just couldn't take it anymore. Don't sweep it under the rug and send your PR out to do damage control. Step up to the plate.feedback

Chris Dolan - Ferro

The steps taken by the company were woefully inadequate. It's perceived by many to be retaliatory. It sends a message to other employees that if you complain, you're the one who's going to have your job changed. In essence, you're penalizing the party who's making the complaint.feedback

Barbara Boxer

I'm not Muslim. I'm not Mexican. I'm not black. I'm not gay or I'm not transgender. But I know this country is based on inclusiveness, on welcoming people, on loving people that are not like you, on not worrying about how something impacts your life personally, but how it impacts all the people around you and all the people that aren't around you.feedback

Ciaran Moynagh

They said: 'Actually we're just disgusted, today is the day I really feel lesser in Northern Ireland'. I think a lot of people who were watching with a bit of hope were knocked back. The optimism within the LGBT community is going downhill fast. I was really quite shocked at the outpouring of emotion, the shock and disappointment from Joe Bloggs in the street. If direct rule came in, it would have to be in for a considerable period of time before the British government would be brave enough.feedback

Stephen Donnan

I have members of my family who vote DUP, who want me to be able to get married. But they see issues like the union, legacy issues around parades, the past and the Troubles as being higher on their list of priorities. The majority of people I know who are unionists or loyalists have absolutely no problem with marriage equality or LGBT rights. They have gay daughters, gay sons, gay uncles – everybody knows a gay person. But what people put on a flagpole can be a stronger pull for people here than social issues.feedback

Ciaran Moynagh

In the past, direct rule has helped LGBT rights here a lot. The Labour government in 2005 introduced civil partnership here through direct rule.feedback

Mairtin O'Muilleoir

Anyone who wants to deny LGBT couples is harking back to a past that is gone. The sooner we get our act together and treat everyone right, the better.feedback

Mairtin O'Muilleoir

In my lifetime, the two biggest changes in society have been the peace, and what a great gift that is, but also the emergence of this wonderful, vocal LGBT community, which is a boon to our society.feedback

Jackie Lacey

Social workers play a vital role in society. We entrust them to protect our children from harm. When their negligence is so great as to become criminal, young lives are put at risk.feedback

Jonathan Hatami

The evidence will show that the defendant is nothing more than a bully, He was a security guard who intentionally tortured and abused a helpless and innocent little boy.feedback

Kevin Wilshaw

It's a terribly selfish thing to say but it's true, I saw people being abused, shouted at, spat at in the street – it's not until it's directed at you that you suddenly realize that what you're doing is wrong. You have other members leading National Front who are overtly gay. And nobody could see the contradiction of it that you have an overtly gay person leading a homophobic organization. Makes no sense.feedback

Rupert Colville - United Nations

In some cases, individuals were reportedly arrested after being entrapped by law enforcement officials on apps and in Internet chat rooms. Charges include 'habitual debauchery, inciting indecency and debauchery,' and 'joining a banned group.feedback

Kevin Wilshaw

On one or two occasions in the recent past I've actually been the recipient of the very hatred of the people I want to belong to. If you're gay it is acceptable in society, but with these group of people it's not acceptable, and I found on one or two occasions when I was suspected of being gay I was subjected to abuse. It's a terribly selfish thing to say but it's true, I saw people being abused, shouted at, spat at in the street – it's not until it's directed at you that you suddenly realise that what you're doing is wrong.feedback

Kevin Wilshaw

She was part Jewish, maiden name was Benjamin, we have Jewish blood on that side. I feel appallingly guilty as well, I really do feel guilty, not only that, this is also a barrier to me having a relationship with my own family, and I want to get rid of it, it's too much of a weight. I want to do some damage as well, not to ordinary people but the people who are propagating this kind of rubbish – want to hurt them, show what it's like for those who are living a lie and be on the receiving end of this type of propaganda, I want to hurt them.feedback

Joe Hagan

You spent 27 years traveling in elite celebrity circles as a gay man married to a woman.feedback

John Boyne

We have become a more secular society, less frightened. People are proud of being gay, rather than being terrified of public exposure.feedback

Lynn Gunn

We partnered with an organization called Lesbians Who Tech, and we went to their big hackathon and pitched two ideas that addressed a couple of the foundation's pillars: [A way to find] culturally competent healthcare for self-identified queer women and girls, and a mentorship app as a way to acknowledge how difficult it is for women in general, but especially queer women, to be paired with mentors. They're incredible people and an incredible band – they do so much for the LGBT community, and for humans in general.feedback

Alyssa Farah

Articles like this are why the American people have lost so much faith in the press. The New Yorker piece is filled with unsubstantiated, unsourced claims that are untrue and offensive.feedback

Eliel Cruz

It is unsurprising that Trump is not a beacon for LGBT inclusion and rights in the White House as he was never a believable advocate for the LGBT community. His empty statements on being great for the LGBT community during his campaign where just that . . . In reality, the Trump campaign never had any proposed LGBT policies on his website, nor made any during campaign speeches, showing pro-LGBT specific public policy issues were simply not a priority.feedback

Andrew Loog Oldham

Mick was attractive for that preening. Many men might say to their mates, Oh, he's a poof!' So they didn't mind their wives or girlfriends enjoying him.feedback

Jock McLean

George was talking about how wonderful the whole thing was going to be, trying to convince Harry to join the company. It was all great until Harry said, The only thing is, I don't think I could be managed by a gay man.feedback

Jim Fouratt

Drugs allowed men and boys to discover their beauty and femininity. The foppishness of rock stars is like the peacock, where the male is the beautiful one, not the female. That became the forefront in rock 'n' roll, encouraged by the gay managers.feedback

Jock McLean

In a heartbeat, Harry was out of the house. George, like all the Beatles, was extremely supportive of Brian. To them, Brian was the man.feedback

Denise Young Smith - Apple

Diversity is the human experience. I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the people of colour, or the women, or the LGBT. I regret the choice of words I used to make this point.feedback

Donald J. Trump

They're telling me I have to pick him. It's central casting. He looks like a vice-president.feedback

Steve Bannon

I'm concerned he'd be a Vice President that the Kochs would own.feedback

Sheldon Whitehouse

If Pence were to become President for any reason, the government would be run by the Koch brothers–period. He's been their tool for years.feedback

Tanya Lokshina

To appeal to the authorities, and to appear here before you, required tremendous courage.feedback

Maksim Lapunov

From their actions, I assumed that they would kill me after some period of time.feedback

Denise Young Smith - Apple

There can be 12 white, blue-eyed, blonde men in a room and they're going to be diverse too because they're going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation. Diversity is the human experience. I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the people of color, or the women, or the LGBT. Last week, while attending a summit in Bogota, I made some comments as part of a conversation on the many factors that contribute to diversity and inclusion.feedback

Rupert Colville - United Nations

We are deeply concerned by a wave of arrests in Azerbaijan, Egypt and Indonesia of more than 180 people perceived to be [LGBT]. Arresting or detaining people based on their actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity is by definition arbitrary and violates international law.feedback

Vlad Viski

It is unacceptable for a person who disobeyed her own Constitution to tour Romania and give out advice about how Romania's Constitution should be changed.feedback

Vlad Viski

It is extremely worrying that a person who broke the law in the United States is being brought to Romania and presented as some sort of hero of Christianity.feedback

Kim Davis

I want to give Romanians hope that they can stand strong and they can stand for something without being against a group of people or whatever. What I can safely say is that if the family was defined in the Constitution as a union between a man and a woman, I would not have spent six days in prison.feedback

Ken Suzuki

As far as the law is concerned, homosexuality doesn't exist.feedback

James Martin

Sadly, many self-appointed Orthodoxy watchdog groups are focused on this. Hosting a play about coming out is not an endorsement, any more than hosting a Greek tragedy is an endorsement of murder and suicide.feedback

Joseph Zwilling
