The Best Thing I Heard Last Night

If Harvey [Milk] had not been taken from us 30 years ago, I think he’d want me to say to all the gay and lesbian kids out there tonight who have been told that they are less than by their churches or by the government or by their families, that you are beautiful, wonderful creatures of value. And that no matter what anyone tells you, God does love you. And that very soon I promise you, you will have equal rights federally across this great nation of ours.” --Dustin Lance Black - winner of the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for his work on Milk
