"If, for a moment, I might directly address certain single gay men seeking long-term relationships... Stop looking for a boyfriend. Boyfriends pop up in the oddest places: a friend's party, an art gallery opening, the subway late at night, a drag show. But the scent of desperation scares many potential Mr. Rights away. Go out and meet lots and lots of people; one might turn out to be quite comfy. If not, you didn't have a bad time along the way."
"By equating marriage with social approval, a deeper truth has been clouded: That gay men and lesbians don't need the permission of governments, churches or other institutions to be human and to demonstrate our value."
