HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HARVEY MILK.

(May 22, 1930)

"Somewhere in Des Moines or San Antonio there is a young gay person who all of a sudden realizes that he or she is gay; knows that if their parents find out they will be tossed out of the house, their classmates will taunt the child, and the Anita Bryant’s and John Briggs’ are doing their part on TV.
And that child has several options: staying in the closet, and suicide. And then one day that child might open the paper that says ‘Homosexual elected in San Francisco’ and there are two new options: the option is to go to California, or stay in San Antonio and fight. Two days after I was elected I got a phone call and the voice was quite young. It was from Altoona, Pennsylvania. And the person said ‘Thanks’.

And you’ve got to elect gay people; so that thousands upon thousands like that child know that there is hope for a better world; there is hope for a better tomorrow. Without hope, not only gays, but those who are blacks, the Asians, the disabled, the seniors, the us’s; without hope the us’s give up.
I know that you can’t live on hope alone, but without it, life is not worth living. And you, and you, and you, and you have got to give them hope.”

LGBTQ* People and Events You Should Know

Gerry Studds - Congress 1983
Gerry Studds (pictured above), a representative of Massachusetts, comes out on the House floor following a series of allegations about Studds and a younger page. Studds admits to any wrongful judgement and action. He later follows up the controversy by coming out to his constituents. Studds becomes the first open homosexual in Congress.

 ”It is not a simple task for any of us to meet adequately the obligations of either public or private life, let alone both, but these challenges are made substantially more complex when one is, as I am, both an elected public official and gay.”— Gerry Studds 

(Now, before anyone emails me that we shouldn’t give praise or attention to an adult man who had a relationship with a teen (17 years old), it is VERY IMPORTANT to know who, when and why people have come out at political level. Studds is part of queer American history and politics. Thus the reason he is receiving this post. - Rebecca)
