Excerpts of Hope

31 years ago yesterday, Harvey Milk was assassinated by a former colleague. Luckily for the billions of people of all sexual orientations around the world, his messages and ideas live on. Whether you are straight, gay or otherwise, his words are powerful and stand for equality. He was a pioneer for the gay movement and equality in general and will continue to be remembered as such.

Sadly, this was the only video of his "Hope Speech" I could find, so please ignore the cheesy triumphant march music in the background.
