QOTD (2009-05-02)

From George Chauncey, Gay New York:

While some men regretted the supposed aberration in their character that queer denoted, others regarded their difference positively and took pleasure in being different from the norm. (As one associate of the writer Carl Van Vechten quipped, “Who wanted to be ‘normal’ and boring?”)

Well indeed.
