Gay Rights Movement

Famous quotes containing the words gay, rights and/or movement:

    The terrifying message of gay liberation is that men are capable of loving their brothers. It should be sweet news to every woman in the world, for, if the capacity of men to love whom they have been taught to treat as competitors and enemies can transcend their education, the world can begin to heal.
    Jane Rule (b. 1931)

    When we lose love, we lose also our identification with the universe and with eternal values—an identification which alone makes it possible for us to lay our lives on the altar for what we believe.
    Sarah Patton Boyle, U.S. civil rights activist and author. The Desegregated Heart, part 3, ch. 2 (1962)

    She had to lean away.
    She dared not stir a foot,
    Lest movement should provoke
    The demon of pursuit
    That slumbers in a brute.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
