"I hope more kids can grow up the same way that I did and more kids can feel the freedom that I feel to be themselves and to express themselves. . . .

"I think masculinity and femininity, it's something that's very old-fashioned. There's a whole generation of people that aren't defined by their sex or their race or by who they like to sleep with. I think as a person you know what your values are and what you believe in, and I think that's the most important thing."

--Olympic ice skater Johnny Weir
