I'd like to think that my election signals my bringing of gay and lesbian folk into the center of the church.
Gene Robinson I would say that I'm a feminist theorist before I'm a queer theorist or a gay and lesbian theorist.
Jeanette Winterson I have met many feminists who were not Lesbians but I have never met a Lesbian who was not a feminist.
Martha Shelley I think my election is one of several indications that gay and lesbian folk are being brought more into the center of things.
I became a lesbian because of women, because women are beautiful, strong, and compassionate.
