SOUNDBITES — “There will be a day when people will wonder how our rights were even an issue. What was the big deal? This state of inequality cannot be our children or grandchildren’s inheritance. That means stepping up and answering the call that this moment in history offers. We have an opportunity to lead. It’s up to us to define what must happen next, what will happen next. If we do not step up with an expansive view of what it means to be lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, if we don’t explain that being LGB or T is simply being human, we will be making a mistake. Whose calling is that if not ours? An agenda? Yes, I have an agenda.” —NGLTF chief Rea Carey, during her keynote speech at the group’s Creating Change conference (via)
