Quotes from nominations received for Patricia Nell Warren
"The mid seventies were not particularly open for gays, at least not in Ohio. Through her book, "Front Runner", Patricia Nell Warren helped me see a more positive world as a young gay man. For the first time I understood more about who I was and what I wanted in life. I knew the characters in "Front Runner" were fictional, but the concepts were not. That has made all the difference."
"Patricia Nell Warren's activism in; free speech rights, GLBT equality issues, sports excellence, youth programs, and writer's programs alone qualify her membership. Ms. Warren's books, notably "Front Runner" have influenced more than a generation of world citizens. Her public presence and activities have provided a positive role model and positive view of our community and increased overall awareness."
"Since the publication of "Front Runner" in 1974, Patricia Nell Warren has been a literal front runner for and in the GLBT community. Her contributions in art and society are a portion of the fabric which is the GLBT community. Thirty years of personal leadership and community dedication certainly gets my vote for Patricia Nell Warren's membership in the Hall Of Fame."
