His words still echo........
“My name is Harvey Milk and I’m here to recruit you.”
“I cannot prevent anyone from getting angry, or mad, or frustrated. I can only hope that they’ll turn that anger and frustration and madness into something positive, so that two, three, four, five hundred will step forward, so the gay doctors will come out, the gay lawyers, the gay judges, gay bankers, gay architects … I hope that every professional gay will say ‘enough’, come forward and tell everybody, wear a sign, let the world know. Maybe that will help.”
“All young people, regardless of sexual orientation or identity, deserve a safe and supportive environment in which to achieve their full potential.”
“If I turned around every time somebody called me a faggot, I’d be walking backward – and I don’t want to walk backward.”
“All men are created equal. No matter how hard you try, you can never erase those words.”
“If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet destroy every closet door.”
