"I am astounded by those who believe hostility toward homosexuals and the denial of civil rights to them is not a civil rights issue. That's why when I am asked, 'Are Gay Rights Civil Rights?' my answer is always, 'Of course they are.'"
-- Julian Bond, Chairman NAACP National Board of Directors, in a letter commending the Ft. Lauderdale NAACP chapter for standing in opposition to homophobic Mayor Naugle.
