Harvey Milk Day

May 22 is Harvey Milk Day, and cities across the lower 48 held events to honor his legacy and promote equality.

Many of the panels, protests, and other events link Milk's words to our current fight to pass gay job protections (ENDA) and repeal the military's gay ban (DADT.) Alaska's members of Congress are divided on these: Sen. Begich supports the bills, Rep. Young opposes them, and Sen. Murkowski has not stated her opinion on either issue.
