MILK


All I can say is go out and see this movie this holiday weekend! Borrow a car....take the subway....hail a cab....walk or run....to your local theater!


It will inspire you.


It is easy for some to take for granted the struggles that we face as gays or lesbians. We know that there are people out there who hold much hate and disgust for us but as long as we live in a our cute little cul de sac where everyone loves us......we are not impacted by that "noise". Some of us continue to go on without reeeeaallly knowing what some chosen individuals did in defense of our lives today. They dared to step out there and say......"We will not be treated as second class citizens or as the dirt underneath your shoe. We DO matter and watch how we - together - can change life as we know it!"
Lyn and I left the theater last night ready to pick up a protest sign and march somewhere....anywhere.....in the rain. Harvey Milk came and conquered.....again.
This movie will recruit and revitalize you.

Can't wait to see the movie. D bought me the book for Christmas ~ can't wait to break it open...I have to finish the last few pages of Paula Poundstone's autobiography tonight.

Which book did you get? The Mayor of Castro Street?

Yes, The Mayor of Castro Street: The Life and Times of Harvey Milk by Randy Shilts (he also authored And the Band Played On)
