Quote of the Day

Stepping out (or stumbling out) of that proverbial closet is a rite of passage unique to us; it makes us a tribe defined and united emotionally and spiritually by the values such a rite instills in us, namely: a respect for diversity of all kinds, a desire to love others how we want to be loved, the courage to love ourselves, a commitment to justice and empathy for every underdog, and a desire to create and beautify the world, rather than destroy it.

-- Richard Blanco, The Out List, p. 11
