Let us remember a pivotal figure who taught us so much. He encouraged us to come out of the closet, to live an authentic life, and how it looked to live like nobody's watching. He was an inspiration, and I strongly suggest people see MILK, the movie, or read The Mayor of Castro Street. Awesome man, assassinated by Dan White, a complete closet case homophobic. His sentence was ridiculously short for a planned assassination.
