 “This means a great deal. Thank you so much. At a moment in time when maybe the most important thing we remember right now is the sanctity of the human spirit, it is the profound privilege of my life to play Prior Walter in Angels in America because he represents the purest spirit of humanity and especially that of the LGBTQ community. It is that spirit that says no to oppression, it is a spirit that says no to bigotry, no to shame, no to exclusion. It is a spirit that says we were all made perfectly, and we all belong. So I dedicate this award to the countless LGBTQ who have fought and died to protect that spirit. To protect that message for the right to live and love as we are created to… we are all sacred. Let’s just bake a cake for everyone who wants a cake to be baked!

“Imagine finding someone you love more then anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do. Just put yourself in that persons shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach.”

Halsey

“Bi-sexual people have to deal with the misconceptions that their identity is just a phase, and that they’ll eventually decide whether they are gay or straight. PSA: They’re neither, and no one should ever feel pressured to fit their sexuality into a binary if it’s not their truth. There are many, many ways to be bisexual. Each individual gets to say how they identify, and nobody’s sexual orientation is up for debate.”  Teen Vogue Magazine

“There are people who have said that I’m being brave for being openly supportive of gay marriage, gay adoption — basically of gay rights — but with all due respect, I humbly dissent. I’m not being brave; I’m being a decent human being. And I don’t think I should receive an award for that or for merely stating what I believe to be true: that love is a human experience, not a political statement.” Human Rights Campaign
