Transcript n "I would warn Orlando that you're right in the way of some serious hurricanes, and I don't think I'd be waving those flags in God's face if I were you." The widespread practice of homosexuality "will bring about terrorist bombs, it'll bring earthquakes, tornadoes and possibly a meteor." — Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson (left) on "The 700 Club" warning Orlando of impending doom for Disney's recent Gay Day. "My lifestyle is exactly like yours," Smith countered. "I wake up, I pick up my paper, I say 'hi' to my neighbor, I feed the dogs, I go to work ... The only thing different is that I share a bed with a man, and I love a man." — Austin, Texas resident David Smith lo evangelists at Disney's Gay Day on June 6. "You don't need to be 'straight' to fight and die for your country. You just need to shoot straight." — Former Sen. Barry Goldwater (right) in a 1993 opinion piece in the Washington Post. Goldwater died May 29. "It was never easy being a homosexual. Everybody knew the theater was full of homosexuals, but nobody admitted to being so. ... I was sexually very late-blooming. ... I think people tried to make passes at me, and I didn't know what they were doing." — Broadway composer and lyricist Steven Sondheim, 68, (left) in a new biography to be published this summer Sondheim created "West Side Story." "Company," "Sweeney Todd" and "Sunday in the Park with George." "Flower boxes are ... a quick and easy way of letting anyone and everyone who passes by know you are a big, raving homosexual—you can take the cheap way out and hang a rainbow flag in your window, which is the gay equivalent of putting a neon Budweiser sign in your living room, or you can hang flower boxes stuffed full of pansies. For this year's selection I installed daisies, great big pink and orange ones, with some little blue flowers I don't have the slightest clue about—it looks good, and that's all that counts.' —Windy City Times columnist Michael Beaumier, May 21. "it helps [my comic inspiration] to live with a conspiracy theorist. It's a show every morning when she reads The New York Times. So that's certainly been a gift. She is an incredible spotter of trends. She wakes up smart every day." — Comic Kate Clinton (right) on her lover, activist Urvashi Vaid, to Chicago's Outlines, May 20. "Certainly it is true that putting people into categories like 'gay' oppresses or at least limits them, but it is also true that it gives them power and political cohesion, that it strengthens their collective resolve to fight back against homophobic campaigns to strip them of their basic civil rights The queer theorist's quixotic vision of a label-less polymorphous Utopia in which carefree hedonists 'challenge the compulsory male-female binary' and play a dizzying round of sexual musical chairs, changing partners proclivities, and even genders at will, is a politically inexpedient pipe dream." — Author Daniel Harris in the Harvard Gay & Lesbian Review, June issue. "Let's face it, everything filters out from the gay community first. Gay people are always far more along with things than the rest of the world ... The gay community and the dance community are the ones who really latched onto us and made us who we are. With 'Conga,' it was the gay clubs that made it a hit before anyone else and took it to the I top." - Singer Gloria Estefan (left) to Chicago's Windy City Times, May 21. "I love seeing the drag queens do me. It's such a compliment. The new album is full of songs the impersonators are going to jump all over. I can't wait to see what they do with 'Real Woman.' They're going to have a field day with it." — Estefan to Windy City Times. "Gay liberation is truly a mass movement. As the world becomes more gay-friendly, more and more unremarkable people take the plunge and come out. Our ranks are now swollen with the listless and the dull. I am amazed by the sheer volume of our numbers. And I am stunned by the way a critical mass of will-to-conformity can suck the life out of the party. "Sophisticates don't have to socialize with the bland, but it would be nice if they tried to inspire. This won't be accomplished by sneering at the dull—they have feelings, too, you know. Being boring is a learned behavior. Today's bore is tomorrow's belle of the ball. Coming out is not the end. but the beginning Adopt a bore today, and show them the way—their future, and ours, is in your hands." — Editorial in the May 21 issue of Toronto's Xtral, written by publisher David Walberg.
