Activist and journalist Rick Bébout (1950-2009) interviewed by Gerald Hannon about gay liberation and the idea of equality.

“I think equality is a hugely facile idea. Equal with what? It says nothing inherently about what you want to be, want you want to become, what you want the world to be like. You just want to be the same as the guy next door.”
