HomoQuotable - Peter Tatchell

"Like every other expression of human culture, homosexual and heterosexual identities are historically transient. They haven’t always existed, and they won't last forever. Indeed, the weakening, blurring and eventual dissolution of the labels queer and straight will be final proof of the demise of homophobia." - Peter Tatchell.

Predicting the end of gay culture as the obviously desirable end-product of assimilation is a golden oldie of the gay right, but it's surprising to hear it from a radical like Tatchell. Would you want to live in a world in which gay people are completely, invisibly, integrated? It's a fantastically interesting question, but a situation that won't plague us in our lifetime.
