Quotes

#Quote
1The problem with all us boys is that we equate God with religion. I still struggle; I do lash out at what I perceive as God, but it's really the bastardization of God by these people who hide behind their church, their book.
2Someone said there are two classes of gay people in the United States: the fabulous and the fearful. There's nothing really in between. The fabulous, we're on both coasts, but we forget about that huge country out there.
