Log in to Reply Damn, fuckin’ Harvey Milk and another guy outed him to the press against his wishes to show a heroic action by a gay person, and destroyed his relationship with his family. Wasn’t even allowed to attend his mother’s funeral due to his father’s homophibia. No good deed goes unpunished.

Fuck that guy! Log in to Reply Suddenly I don’t feel as I once did about Milk. If he could use his ‘friend’ and help destroy his life- it’s an indication of how he was with others.
