"I'm just becoming aware of it... by articles such as this one. I really have become very much aware, first of all, what great audiences they are. And it isn't that I finally discovered that gay people understand me and straight people don't - oh, no no no. Not a word of truth in that. I can't tell you how many straight people I know that think I am the cat's pajamas.

"It sounds like I've lost my mind, but I feel like I'm becoming aware of it."

-- Broadway legend Elaine Stritch, remarking in an interview with PrideSource that until recently, she was unaware of her status as a gay icon.
