To Quote a Queer

We’re here. We’re queer. And we’re hilarious! Not to mention eloquent, bitchy, poetic, luminous, and dead-on brilliant! To Quote a Queer features more than 2,500 quotations on a host of subjects, including:

Body Image: “To be gay and out of shape is almost as much of a stigma as just being gay used to be.”—Bruce Vilanch

Fashion: “If I am occasionally a little overdressed, I make up for it by being always immensely overeducated.”—Oscar Wilde

Homophobia: “A lot of people are not homophobic, but they think they’re supposed to be. They think that if they don’t express prejudice, people will think there’s something the matter with them.”—Barney Frank

Therapy: “I think I have OCD or ADD or some other three-initial ditty. Whatever it is, it’s exhauasting.”—Rosie O’Donnell

Truth: “I don’t care what anybody says about me as long as it isn’t true.”—Truman Capote

Childhood: “Bike-riding and tree-climbing may be typically boyish, but they were merely means to my sissified ends; I wanted, like an eight-year-old Garbo, to be alone.”—Dan Savage

Coming Out: “What happened to me is exactly the opposite of what closeted people fear. They think they’ll lose everything if they come out. This did not happen to me at all. In fact, everything came back tenfold.”—Melissa Etheridge

Fame: “When you become a public figure, you become at the same time a product, and people actually look at your ‘expiration date,’ you know? They look at your age and say, ‘Hmm. How fresh is this one?’”—RuPaul

And much more. Hitting shelves just in time for summer’s pride festivities, To Quote a Queer is the perfect gift for gays and the people who love them.
