Remembering Harvey Milk

H/T Towleroad

Harvey Milk was assassinated on this day, thirty years ago, November 27th, 1978.

The movie Milk was released yesterday.

I checked to see where it was playing in the Tri-Cities and got

Time to contact theaters. This town needs to see this film:

for all about this film.

We also want to remember George Moscone, the mayor of San Francisco, assassinated on that same day.


  1. Not playing in central Iowa either, mores the pity. j

  2. I was living in San Francisco on the day brother Milk and Moscone were assasinated. The godmother of our soon to be born daughter worked for the mayor... it was a horrible, ugly and tragic day. We lived in the Haight but within hours the city gathered together to weep and pray and sing in solidarity. Bless you.

  3. Jay--I am hoping it will have a wider release. Folks who do have it in their area should go see it so it will go everywhere!

    RJ--Thank you for that. I looked at your blog and like what you are doing! I added you to my blogroll.

  4. RJ--BTW, I really like the spirituality of Rock and Roll. I did a Saturday night service at my last church called "Rock and Roll Religion." We played "secular" via our own band that spoke to spiritual things. I hope to do something like that again.

  5. The NY Times review says, "'Milk' is a marvel." Readers have given it 4.5 stars out of five.
