If you are really gay, you are able to fall in love with a man, not just enjoy sex with him  (Christopher Isherwood Quotes) A minority is only thought of as a minority when it constitutes some kind of threat to the majority, real or imaginary. And no threat is ever quite imaginary  (Christopher Isherwood Quotes) If it’s going to be a world with no time for sentiment, it’s not a world that I want to live in  (Christopher Isherwood Quotes)
