Mary Hansen Quotes

So what if people say terrible things? Whatever they call me, I say, "Yes, and my name is Mary." I refuse to be afraid. And I do this out of an obligation not to the community but to myself. Nobody should have a say in who I am.
Mary Hansen (b. c. 1975), U.S. gay/lesbian rights activist. As quoted in the New York Times, sect. 9, p. 7 (June 13, 1993). Hansen, a lesbian, was a recent graduate of New York City's Harvey Milk High School for gay and lesbian students.
