[1] Farley Granger with Robert Calhoun, Include Me Out: My Life from Goldwyn to Broadway, page 41: "I have never felt the need to belong to any exclusive, self-defining or special group. I find it difficult to answer questions about 'gay life' in Hollywood when I was living and working there. There were, of course, gay cliques, but I had no close friends who belonged to any of them, and I had no desire to become involved with any of them... I was never ashamed, and I never felt the need to explain or apologize for my relationships to anyone."
