Remembering Harvey Milk and Anita Bryant

A bit of “old” news as I try to catch up on some blog reading: Evidently Sean Penn is endorsing a Harvey Milk Day in California, joining some state senators in calling for the memorial day, which would occur on May 22. I guess the bill passed last year, but the governor vetoed it because folks outside of San Francisco didn’t know who Milk was. That probably changed with the release of Milk. (QueerSighted)

Also of interest, I think, is this shirt, also via QueerSighted:

Anita Sucks Fruit shirt

This shirt was originally produced in the 1970s, but is being re-produced, and proceeds go to the LGBT Community Center in New York City and the Human Rights Campaign.
