Harvey Milk Day, in a rare burst of seriousness

This is Harvey Milk. If you don't know, he was the first openly gay elected official in the U.S. He was also assassinated--shot 5 times while sitting at his desk. May 22 (his birthday) is Harvey Milk Day. A day for us all to try and figure out why in the hell we allow discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation to continue, and to do what we can to bring about the demise of this absurd bigotry. You can clicky-pants here to learn more about Harvey Milk, his day, and some other LGBT (or LGBTQQ, or whatever the acronym is these days) equality and support resources.

Heterosexism is bullshit, people. That's fucking Science.


  1. Happy Harvey Milk Day. Here's hoping that Harvey Milk Day is someday about how stupid it was that anyone was every allow to discriminate against the LGBT community in the first place.

  2. That would be fantastic...I can see it now, everyone gathering together with a dairy product of their choice and looking back with the opposite of nostalgia (is there a word for that?) for the current debate over marriage (and other) equality.
