“It takes more than a sign, a fabulous outfit or a month of parades. Pride has to resonate from within; shine out to everyone around you. It has mean something to you and only you first before you announce it to the world.” —Solange Nicole
“How many years has it taken people to realize that we are all brothers and sisters and human beings in the human race?” —Marsha P. Johnson
“Equality means more than passing laws. The struggle is really won in the hearts and minds of the community, where it really counts.” —Barbara Gittings
“To be afraid is to behave as if the truth were not true.” —Bayard Rustin
