  • Love is love is love (and other inspirational words)

    With all the celebrations, let’s not forget the fights of the past and of the present.  And still, we must fight. Here are some quotes to keep you continually inspired during this month of Pride and after.


    “Believing you are unworthy of love and belonging — that who you are authentically is a sin or is wrong — is deadly. Who you are is beautiful and amazing.” Laverne Cox

    “Openness may not completely disarm prejudice, but it’s a good place to start.”–Jason Collins, first openly gay athlete in U.S. pro sports

    “Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.”–Harvey Fierstein

    “Somebody, your father or mine, should have told us that not many people have ever died of love. But multitudes have perished, and are perishing every hour–and in the oddest places!–for the lack of it.”–Author James Baldwin

    “Without community, there is no liberation.” -Audre Lorde
