"This is a point in time where we've accomplished a number of things in easy states and where you hear some people saying gay rights is inevitable. It's clearly not."

-- Equality advocate and noted gay philanthropist Tim Gill, warning against complacency in an interview with Politico. Gill noted that while the LGBT equality movement has made strides in select blue states, our civil rights are still under attack in many other states across the country.
