Quote of the Day

It wasn't that long ago that you had to hide your sexual orientation. And maybe now because it's more open, as it should be [we're seeing these types of attacks]. . . . Everyone is allowed to be what they are. They are themselves. It's allowed and it's fine. . . . People should be allowed to be different. . . . You have to allow people to be what they are and encourage that.

– Elisabeth Sladen

NOTE: Actress Elisabeth Sladen (1948-2011) made these remarks when a guest on the British TV chat show The Wright Stuff in 2009. She was responding to the issue of “gay hate teen attacks,” and in particular to this incident.
