IN OUR OWN WORDS

The nation of male homosexual loverhood is essential to the eradication of misandry and the emergence of the true male spirit. Male homosexual love is a deeply personal experience, and it can be difficult to communicate second-hand. We hope that the statements below, collected from various members of the male homosexual brotherhood, can give some insight into what loverhood means to us.

There’s this illusion that homosexuals have sex and heterosexuals fall in love. That’s completely untrue. Everybody wants to be loved. - Boy George.

Everybody’s journey is individual. If you fall in love with a boy, you fall in love with a boy. The fact that many Americans consider it a disease says more about them than it does about homosexuality. - James Baldwin.

Gay marriage – it’s not about two people being gay: it’s about two people who love each other and who have decided to commit to each other for the exact same reasons any other couple would get married. - Luke Macfarlane.

Gay rights are not primarily marriage rights, and for the millions who live in unaccepting places with no resources, dignity remains exclusive.

My cousin’s gay, he went to London only to find out that Big Ben was a clock. - Rodney Dangerfield.
