"My Name is Harvey Milk and I'm Here to Recruit You"

Last Thursday, Karen and I attended an advanced screening of Milk and all I have to say is... GO!

It's a brilliant film, a brilliant performance by Sean Penn, and it feels as if something greater than all of us aligned the stars so that we could see this movie and be filled with hope.

Hope that we can beat Prop 8. Hope that our stories and our history will be told. Hope that Harvey Milk's spirit lives on in us. In our struggle. And in our victories.

Hope will never be silent” - Harvey Milk

If a bullet should go through my head,
let that bullet go through every closet door

I don't know why they couldn't have found a gay actor to portray one of the greatest gay soldiers America has ever known, but what the hell....Penn was married to Madonna. That makes him gay by proxy. I guess.
