“If you are a woman,

if you’re a person of colour,

if you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender,

if you are a person of size,

if you are a person of intelligence,

if you are a person of integrity,

then you are considered a minority in this world….

When you don’t have self-esteem you will hesitate before you do anything in your life … You will hesitate to defend yourself when you are discriminated against because of your race, your sexuality, your size, your gender. You will hesitate to vote, you will hesitate to dream.

For us to have self-esteem is truly an act of revolution and our revolution is long overdue.”

Margaret Cho
