Re: “Why our ‘Queer of the Year’ is now our ‘Person of the Year’” (www.thegavoice.com, Dec. 28, and discussion at www.facebook.com/thegavoice)
"I think I’d rather be called queer than gay. I’m not really sure why; I’ve just always liked the word better."
"The definition states strange, unusual, etc. There is nothing strange about me. There is nothing strange about us as a group."
"I embrace being queer."
