    • Kate: (on coming out) I was like 14 or 15 and it was fine. I mean obviously it was hard – like it's hard for everyone – and confusing. And you're alone – I was the only gay person in my high school. But I had the support of my family and that I think could make anything okay, basically. So I was very, very lucky.

    • Kate : (stated in a 2010 interview) My ultimate dream would be to be a Lily Tomlin or to be Tracy Ullman. You know just a character woman…I would kill to be the first gay person on SNL or have a Tracy Ullman type show. That would be my ultimate dream.

    • Kate: (On the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater community) It's just the smartest people I ever met, other than the writing staff at SNL, it's just a really intelligent group of people who are really devoted to learning and doing stuff all the time, and people are performing every night and every week. That's where I learned everything—just by doing and doing, and being around funny people, and being taught by funny people. It's so nice, and a true community spirit.

    • Kate: (On how being gay figures into her work) As minorities, we're on the fringe, and there's just something so wonderful about that perspective, something so inspiring.
