Big Gay Quotes 2012

We talk a lot, people talk about us a lot, hey we tend to be political and interesting and sometimes even witty...

Here are my fave gay quotes of the last year:

"It is important for me go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married."
- President Barack Obama

"I feel like those people who criticize should stop writing letters and get a hobby. I personally get letters from kids every single day who write to me in secret because they live in environments that don’t accept who they are. So I really could care less about what those people say."
- Glee star Chris Colfer

"The marriage equality issue should be recognized for what it truly is - a civil rights issue that must be approved to assure that every citizen is treated equally under the law."
- Bruce Springsteen

"I think if two people love each other, then what the hell? I think that everyone should have the chance to be equally miserable, if they want. It's the new tolerant me!"
- Eminem
"The fact is, I'm gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn't be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud."
- Anderson Cooper

"The majority of my fans have been amazing & supportive. But I am in shock and ashamed of many of my ‘fans’ who are standing firm in their stance that I am ‘less than’ them because of my sexual orientation. To those who feel this way: I gladly show you the door and wish you well on your journey." 
- Modern Family actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson

"Nature made Sam, it wasn't a choice.... You all have fought for him as surely as you were one of his parents. You've changed and are changing the lives of little boys and girls who realized somewhere along the way they're just different from their other brothers and sisters. And so the fuck what."
- Actress Sally Field on her gay son and the LGBT community during her HRC Ally for Equality Award acceptance speech.

"Gay people are born and belong to every society in the world. They are all ages, all races, all faiths. They are doctors and teachers, farmers and bankers, soldiers and athletes. And, whether we know it, or whether we acknowledge it, they are our family, our friends and our neighbors. Being gay is not a western invention. It is a human reality." 
 - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
