"When I heard that I thought it was like a midlife crisis line, like ’pray away the gray.’" - Presidential hopeful Michele Bachmannjoked about common "ex-gay" therapy saying "Pray away the gay" during an interview with Jay Leno.
"Well, imagine how hard it is for Latin guys and Latin kids to be gay. Most of us are raised very Catholic, and the macho figure is very strong in our culture, so it’s still more taboo and a million times more dramatic to come out. Many gay friends have told me how hard it was for them to be open in the Latin community. Nothing’s going to change from one day to the other, so it’s a matter of doing things little by little. That’s why I love the gay couple in ’Modern Family.’ People always tell me, ’We’ve never seen a normal, loving gay couple before!’ They think gay people are just running around naked, partying in nightclubs. So it’s good for older people, especially those who aren’t exposed to a lot of gays like we are in the big cities, to see gay people portrayed in a beautiful way." - "Modern Family" actress Sofia Vergara told The Advocate about why she filmed her public service announcement for GLAAD’s "Be an Ally and a Friend" campaign in Spanish.
"There’s one big fact that’s not backed up. There is no proof that there’s ever anything like a gay, lesbian or bisexual or transgendered child, or teen or human. One of the other things you’re gonna see as I mentioned is a big campaign GLSEN’s gonna roll out this year calling for ’respect’ respect! Not just for people, but for homosexual lifestyle. The PR campaign to hold up gay as a good thing: the lifestyle, not the person, because there are no such humans." - Linda Harvey, head of conservative organization Mission America, said there’s no proof that LGBT people exist.
