I hope that I am the type of person who would fall in love with another person, as opposed to a sex. Most of my life to date has been as a straight man, but who knows what will happen next?... A lot of people will hear that and think it means, ’Well, he’s gay and just excusing it’, or ’He’s been with his girlfriend for a really long time and just wants to change things’... Appreciation of both sexes is actually not new; it’s incredibly old it’s Roman, it’s Greek, and it is something people can do throughout an entire lifetime, having hugely meaningful relationships, no matter what sex they are.

You know you love her. xoxo
There were times where I would say to [the actor who played his boyfriend], 'Bob, “I love you,' and the audience would laugh nervously, because, you know, it’s a long time ago, that I’d feel this anger. I wanted to stop the tape and go, 'What is your problem?' Because it made you sort of very self-conscious about what we were trying to do then. And now it’s just, I see it and I just hope people don’t abuse it and shove it in our face -- well, that sounds terrible -- to the point of it just feels like an everyday kind of thing.
Dr. King will forever be remembered as the most courageous civil rights figure to ever live. He was a man who empowered people around the world to stand up for themselves and for their brothers and sisters who were being discriminated against. We celebrate his work, peacefully protesting and him sacrificing so much for a cause bigger than himself.
Martin Luther King, Jr. was an amazing man who led us into a future of a more integrated world. His life and legacy has taught me to speak up and to stand up for what I believe in. His bravery and commitment will always be remembered for generations to come. Thank you Dr. King for everything you've done for this country.
Martin Luther King, Jr. is one of my personal heroes. His will and determination changed the world and still inspires people many years later. Martin Luther King, Jr. has taught me personally to fight for what is right and to never back down and to do this always in a peaceful way.
Every day I am reminded of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s legacy as I try to embrace the values of courage, truth, justice, compassion, dignity, humility and service that defined his character. I am inspired by Dr. King to be a person of action... one who doesn't just talk about justice, but takes action to end injustice. His life and legacy motivate and influence me every day of the year.
Martin Luther King, Jr. set an example for the way we should all live our lives and his acts of nonviolence continue to inspire me to handle situations in a peaceful manner. I admire and appreciate Dr. King's sacrifices for peace and equality.
Martin Luther King, Jr. was such an incredible man not only because of what he did for racial integration, but also because he showed the world how to fight back peacefully. I am so thankful for Martin Luther King, Jr. because he will forever be remembered for demonstrating something I firmly believe in: No matter how different we look, act and seem, we are all human beings, and we all deserve the same amount of respect and compassion.
