“I don’t know that anyone should out anybody. But I feel that people should come to terms with who they are for them to out themselves. We should allow them to grow into that; into whoever they believe who they are.”
Brandon Enhilla, East Point
“It ain’t none of your business; why are you telling other peoples’ business? It has nothing to do with you. If he/she felt comfortable enough to express what they are feeling and thought about their life then they would do it themselves. It’s really no one else’s business to do so.”
Nefertiti Akinyela, Decatur
“I don’t think it’s anyone’s right to publicize private information about any other person.”
Theo McDaniel, Atlanta
“I think that it’s, really, none of their business. But at the same time it can be of some importance because some folks do not like to sit up and expose themselves and other folks do need to know.”
Charlene Knox, Atlanta
“I think it is necessary for others to know. It doesn’t matter if they are male or female. I believe it is something that is hazardous to our life and it’s something we need to know. I think it’s important that we know our options for us to date a homosexual man or woman.
