'Whether you are gay or straight, everyone needs someone to love. While we may not agree on every issue, we are united in the values of love, understanding and tolerance. ... I love the Log Cabin Republicans. I love this organization. I love all of you.' — Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger addressing a gay Log Cabin Republicans fundraiser June 29 in Hollywood.

'The governor [ Arnold Schwarzenegger ] actually spends more time during the week with two gay people—his chief of staff and his personal assistant—than with his wife, Maria Shriver. Her chief of staff, Daniel Zingale, also is gay. A former political director of the Human Rights Campaign, a national gay rights group, Zingale also is a close advisor to the governor.' — The Los Angeles Times, June 30.

'What a piece of shit he is, fucking fag.' — Chicago White Sox Manager Ozzie Guillen referring to Chicago Sun-Times reporter Jay Mariotti during a conversation with reporters in the dugout June 21. Ozzie now plans to attend the Gay Games while he is here for home games.

' [ Proposed ] Amendment: Congress shall recognize no votes or opinions about the sanctity and preservation of marriage from its members who have been divorced and/or remarried while their first spouses are still alive. ( To say nothing of those who are married while not-so-secretly fucking someone on their staff. ) ' — Washington Post reporter Hank Stuever writing in the Seattle alternative weekly The Stranger, June 22.

'Newt Gingrich leaving his second wife for a House staffer 23 years younger ( while at the same time railing about morals ) should be forever commemorated with a diorama at the as-yet-unbuilt Smithsonian Museum of Family-Values Hypocrisy, as should the quadruply married misadventures of pill popper Rush Limbaugh.' — Gay Washington Post reporter Hank Stuever writing in the Seattle alternative weekly The Stranger, June 22.

'It's totally the best thing I have ever done in my life. It should be on my gravestone, 'I came out.' You have to keep telling people and reassuring them that life is going to be better. I've never met anyone who is out who didn't think it was the best thing they ever did. It took me an awfully long time, and there were some people of my generation who have never come out. Look at Dirk Bogarde, the wonderful gay actor who couldn't bring himself to say he was gay and died an unhappy man.' — Gay actor Sir Ian McKellen to London's Pink Paper, June 15.

' [ If I'm gay ] does that mean I can't play King Lear or Iago or Macbeth or Hamlet or Romeo? It's all rubbish and the public don't give a fuck frankly. Everyone's always worried about someone else when it comes to coming out. 'I don't mind but don't tell your auntie.' And you tell your auntie and she says, 'I don't mind but don't tell the nephew.' They're all worried about someone else.' — Gay actor Sir Ian McKellen to London's Pink Paper, June 15.

'If people saw how diverse we are — we're not all just like Kevin Aviance, we're a very diverse community, we have drag queens and feminine guys but we also have very masculine guys, people who are like Anderson Cooper, people who are incredibly strong and incredibly brave—I think it would change people's minds. To enjoy the benefits from the gay movement and then basically lie just to make more money, I think it's a disgrace. Shame on him. ... Someone should push him out.' — Gay porn star Michael Lucas to Denver's exp Magazine, June 23. Cooper has refused to discuss his sexual orientation, one way or the other, with interviewers.

'The strip [ Dykes To Watch Out For ] is still really exciting to me. Especially at this point in history, as it [ the U.S. ] is dissolving into totalitarianism. I just feel like this country is insane. It is, seriously—we're being ruled by psychopaths. The comic strip is just an outlet to vent my feelings about it.' — Cartoonist Alison Bechdel to Vancouver's Xtra! West, June 8.

'Why are scientists so preoccupied with what causes homosexuality, to the near-total exclusion of the factors that lead to heterosexuality? I don't object to research into sexual orientation. It is the one-sided obsession that bugs me. The presumption seems to be that straightness is normal and therefore does not need explanation; whereas queerdom is a deviation from the norm and this requires investigation and answers.' — British gay activist Peter Tatchell writing in London's Guardian, June 28.
