    I just go crazy when I hear these people on the stages on gay pride rallies going on and on how 'We're just like everyone else.' Then a seven-and-a-half-foot drag queen comes walking by and opens his butterfly wings and I just think, 'Yeah, we're just like everyone else.' I think we should celebrate who we are. I don't need anyone's approval.
