In honor of Harvey Milk Day and what would have been the LGBTQ icon's 88th birthday, a nod to the enduring legacy of the first openly gay person elected to public office in a major U.S city. Milk fought for the right to be visible, to be who he was without shame or fear, to join with the disenfranchised - gay, black, poor, old, the "us'es" - seeking "a green light to move forward," to offer hope, which we can all use today.

As we move ever closer to habitat collapse it is interesting to note that not only were gays and lesbians discussing civil rights, but we were also questioning the supremacy of heterosexist norms back then.
I know. I was there in San Francisco during this time.
Harvey Milk did a lot to expand the understanding of civil rights in a time when the odds were not in his favor. Cheers
