Queer Quotes

On Coming Out and Culture, Love and Lust, Politics and Pride, and Much More

Author: Teresa Theophano

Hundreds of inspirational, humorous, and provocative quotations about being queer

What is a queer quote?

It’s a reflection on love and romance, culture and art, family and friends, and the foibles and follies of life. It’s an insight into not only what it means to be gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender in our society, but what it means to be human. It’s fresh, entertaining, and celebratory.

Queer Quotes is a compendium of wit and wisdom from well-known historical and contemporary cultural figures-from Oscar Wilde to Rita Mae Brown, from Quentin Crisp to Sandra Bernhard, and from James Baldwin to k.d lang.

Often amusing, the quotes are also thought-provoking and have an impressive scope. Subjects range from love and gay marriage to HIV/AIDS, from gender identity to religion, and everything in between. Featuring more than 350 quotes as well as short biographies of all the individuals quoted, Queer Quotes is an essential resource and an ideal gift book.
