"Chalk it up to progress that some celebrities are now embarrassed to be thought of as having been in the closet, which increasingly seems like a relic from the last century ( even as it still endures mightily ) . More and more gay, lesbian and bisexual actors, and TV and media personalities, don't want to be associated with the often laughable and torturous subterfuge of it."—Huffpost Gay Voices Editor-at-Large Michelangelo Signorile on the Huffington Post, May 29.

"The claim that gays should be barred from conservative activism is a bipartisan bigoted view. The far left doesn't want a gay to be conservative; the far right doesn't want a conservative to be gay. I don't have the luxury of being a one-issue voter. I'm more thoughtful and complex than that. I am comfortably gay and conservative."—former Romney campaign staffer Richard Grenell to the Washington Blade, June 1.

"When the uterus is criminalized, then only criminals will have uteruses."—TV star and presidential hopeful Roseanne Barr on Twitter, May 18.

"When the nuns push for social justice, they're put into stocks. Yet Archbishop Sartain has led a campaign in Washington to reverse the state's newly enacted law allowing same-sex marriage, and he's a church hero."—Columnist Maureen Dowd to the New York Times, April 28.

"I grew up in Houston, in a pretty urbane setting. I was a very serious girl who would bring her little gay friends home to talk to my mom, who was this wild French woman."—Actress Mireille Enos in the May issue of Esquire.

"I mean, [ Mitt Romney ] went from being my first crush at six years old—I named my Ken dolls 'Mitt'—and then when I was old enough to hear what was coming out of his mouth, it was over. I'm sure he's a nice guy. I knew him to be a nice person, to those around him. He had five sons that I knew, that my brothers would play with growing up, and they were kind to others. But what they stand for I don't find to be tolerant or just."—Actress Eliza Dushku, to New York Magazine, April 20.

"I'm going to have embarrassing moments, and that won't be fun. But that's part of what talking to you is about—is hoping people will understand, and hoping they'll be fairly kind."—Against Me lead singer Laura Jane Grace comes out at trans to Rolling Stone, May 8.
