If you haven't seen the movie Milk yet, make plans to see it. It documents an important piece of queer history. But also the parallels to today's struggles, especially Prop 8, are astounding.
It made me wonder, why haven't we learned from history? Why can't we build the kind of coalitions that Harvey built? Why didn't the "No on 8" people use Barack Obama's endorsement against 8 more vigorously?
And why are we fighting the same fight 30 years later? Milk is all at once inspiring and infuriating. If you see only one movie this year, see Milk.
