Personal Quotes (2)

[after being detained at an airport as a possible terrorist] For the first time I feel like leaving the country. America is becoming a nightmare with the permanent war culture brought on by this President. I don't recognize my country. - November 2005
[on his 2011 marriage to Hugo Redwood, in "Out" Magazine] We got married because we wanted to do it quickly for fear that they would take it away again, like they did in California. Getting married was a political act because so many people fought so hard for it. Also, every time I say the word "husband" and somebody flinches, I am helping to teach society this is the way it will be. This is the way it is.
