Harvey Milk Day

Today marks the birthday and celebration of an amazing man in the LGBTQ world. Supervisor Harvey Milk made a huge impact in the fight for equality and continued doing so even after his devastating assassination in '78. This legendary man continued to pave the way for equal rights for homosexuals and did so with pride, honour and dignity.

Today is his birthday and he is sadly missed. It was great that in 2009, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger announced that May 22nd will be Harvey Milk day after the success of the movie Milk, which lets us follow the life of Harvey and his fight for equality.

Personally, i'd like to say a huge thank you to Harvey and for everything he did for my community. I'd also like to extend my thanks to those who worked with him during his life and continued after his death so we can live our lives freely.
