Verity Ritchie at BiCon UK, 2015

“A haven for me, BiCon is a place where sexual fluidity and gender variance are celebrated. After the excitement of the weekend, we go back to the real world, where safe bi and trans spaces are few and far between.” —Verity Ritchie

“The critique that my identity implied that gender is binary is antithetical to my beliefs. Rather than simply defend myself against these allegations, I wanted to use the lens of bisexuality to challenge binary gender. In my TED Talk, I offer my small contribution to the considerable endeavor of freeing us all from limiting notions of gender.” —Tania Israel

“ humanity is co-substantively bestowed upon the other and me. Humanity is a quality we owe to each other. And if we belong to each other, we participate in our creations: we are because you are, and since you are, definitely I am. The ‘I am’ is not a rigid subject, but a dynamic selfconstitution...”—Khafre Abif

Marsha P. Johnson with VIto Russo, New York City. From the private collection of Larry Mass.

“Those who were a little too feminine were frowned upon, but Marsha and a few others would stand ram-rod straight, shoulders back, head high and present themselves. That gave happiness to people who said ‘I wish I had the guts to do that’.” —Agosto Machado, The Life and Times of Marsha P. Johnson, 2012

“Nunca tive medo de me mostrar. Você pode ficar escondido em casa, protegido pelas paredes. Mas você tá vivo, e essa vida é pra se mostrar. Esse é o meu espetáculo. Só quem se mostra se encontra. I never feared showing myself. You can stay hidden at home, protected by walls. But you are alive, and life is to show yourself. That is my performance. Only those who show themselves can find themselves. ” —Cazuza

“People feel a type of way when they see any sexuality on-screen. People are so fascinated by it. It shouldn’t even be a discussion. But it is, because people are still curious, and people still wonder how they feel about things. At the end of the day I don’t really care if someone feels uncomfortable about it. It is what it is, and it’s life.” —Queen Latifah on Bessie
