Happy Harvey Milk Day!

When people play the "If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would you pick?" game, my answer is always this guy. Harvey Milk would have turned 85 today. 

Cleve Jones looks back, and still sees lessons for today: 
"Harvey also believed that the LGBT community was part of something larger — the global movement for peace and social justice. He believed in coalitions with labor unions, feminists, antiwar activists, and other progressives. Here in San Francisco, he fought for renters, senior citizens, people of color, and low-wage workers. He wasn’t a single-issue candidate, and as a city supervisor he championed the causes of our most vulnerable residents."
