On Comment #13... about the scene in the movie "Milk", about the boy in the wheelchair...
in reality, that scene never happened! The young man said he read about Harvey, in a Minnesota paper... and Harvey asked "How did I look?" That scene takes place before the impromptu march in S.F. in response to the Anita Bryant led victory in Dade County Florida on 6/7/77. My iconic image of Harvey, was the only one on the wire services that evening... and it came after the march, and not before as depicted in the Movie. The scene of Harvey with the bullhorn in front of the Castro Theater, never happened... and according to the movie, the march ended in front of City Hall... that too, never happened... it ended at Union Square. My image introduced Harvey, as a gay spokes -person 5 months before he was elected. However... the fact that the movie introduced Harvey Milk and that era to millions of people, young and old, gay and straight, here in the USA and around the world!
Oct 5, 2009 Jerry Pritikin commented on Obama Keeps On Talking the Talk....
The problem... he's speaking to those who paid big bucks to this "Black-tie" Event. I almost had the opportunity to speak at the Washington National Equality Now March, because I was one of the finalist in their "Idol" contest. I lost out to Sam Sussman,who had the best entry and received the most votes... but you know what... I rather hear what Sam Sussman has to say! He happens to be "straight", but he believes in equality for all ... no more, no less than the next person when it comes to Human Rights, Civil Rights or Gay Rights. I like that... and maybe President Obama could learn from JOIN THE IMPACT, one of the groups who had Cleve Jones come to Chicago to speak to us... and they only charged $5.

They are also sending 4 buses to Washington, and again made it affordable for the little guy, by making a round trip available for $100. They also made seats available for less... for those who qualified. I have been priced OUT of every event ever staged by the HRC. They really never represented me... and up until now... I have been a one man army fighting for over 30 years for gay rights... However, I did join the "Join The Impact/ Chicago" Chapter, because I have found them to be inspiring, with most of their members young. It's their future now. I find it ironic, that this march is taking place in Washington, because I remember the words of a young JFK, in his Inaugural
Speech, saying that the "Torch has been passed to a new generation"... and I hope that many of the so-called gay leaders SHUT-UP, and listen to what this new generation of gay and equal right's fighter say, and want, including that of Sam Sussman who offer HOPE, for a better future, and NOW for ALL of US!

Hi... I am #72, Ironically... that is also my age. I must of had a senior moment, as noted by #91. I left off the web-site that I was recommending. It's
www.thecastro.net and my pages are
thecastro.net/street/memoriespage/pritik… there is a link on my first page to my blog. I must confess, I was impressed as to how many hits I have had from "the stranger" and of course one of my favorite lines from Tennessee Williams "STREET CAR NAMED DESIRE"... is" I always depended on the kindness of Strangers"

GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT... WHEN HARVEY MILK AND MAYOR MOSCONE WERE ASSASSINATED ON NOVEMBER 27,1978...
THERE WERE NO RIOTS. THE RIOTS, KNOW AS THE WHITE NIGHT RIOT CAME ON MAY 21,1979 WHEN THE INFAMOUS "TWINKIE"DEFENSE VERDICT CAME IN... AND DAN WHITE WAS SENTENCED TO ONLY 7 YEARS AND MANSLAUGHTER.

I RECOMMEND A WELL KNOWN WEB-SITE THAT IS DEDICATED TO THE EVOLUTION OF THE CASTRO AND THE TIMES OF HARVEY MILK DURING THE 1970'S... AND IT'S RECORDED BY PEOPLE WHO WERE THERE, AND THE IMAGES ARE NOT REREATIONS LIKE THE "MILK" MOVIE.
REAL HISTORY LESSONS... ARE ONLY AS GOOD AS ITS SOURCE.
