Lesbian Quotations

Growing up in a Jewish matriarchal world inside the patriarchal paradise of Salt Lake City, Utah, gave me increased perspective on gender issues, as it also did my gay brother and my lesbian sister. Our younger sister is the perfect Jewish-American wife and mother, and is fiercely proud of that fact.
Roseanne Barr

You know, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender - people are people.
Judith Light

The issue of equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals has vexed politicians for decades. I have my own cloudy history with the issue, having supported a law in Mississippi that made it illegal for LGBT couples to adopt children. I believed at the time this was a principled position based on my faith.
Ronnie Musgrove

Barack Obama

I would say that I'm a feminist theorist before I'm a queer theorist or a gay and lesbian theorist.
Judith Butler
