I just found out about Logo television and was watching it today and decided to post a quote from one of their comedians.

"If you can be out be out. People need to know we're here. They gotta know who we are. They gotta see we're just normal people. I got into an argument with this guy at a party once and he just had a little bee in his bonnet about our pride parade. 'Why do you guys gotta have a parade for who you screw?' I said, 'because we do it that well.'"
- Jenny McNelty

I hope I got her name right, but my new goal is to come out to as many people as I can. I hope you can take the same goal with me.

"People take love for granted. When me and Hertha first come to England, we didn't know nobody, we didn't have nothing, but we have friendship. We used to say, we are like Ruth and Naomi from the Bible. Where you go I will go and where you stay I will stay. Your country will be my country, and your god will be my god."

This is from the movie Oh Happy Day. It's right after Hertha dies and Rosie is talking to the rest of the family. What she said really spoke to me, in and out of context, and I just wanted to share it with everyone.
