Re: “Fullilove Withdraws Non-Discrimination Ordinance & Resolution

Thank you Jonathan Cole & Michelle Bliss (TEP) for your tireless efforts and everyone that supported TEP by showing up at City Hall.

This city has seen change. It knows what needs to be done more than any other city. It takes a peaceful, organized, well represented community to stand tall and often, shoulder to shoulder.

“My name is Harvey Milk and I’m here to recruit you.” Harvey Milk

“I cannot prevent anyone from getting angry, or mad, or frustrated. I can only hope that they’ll turn that anger and frustration and madness into something positive, so that two, three, four, five hundred will step forward, so the gay doctors will come out, the gay lawyers, the gay judges, gay bankers, gay architects … I hope that every professional gay will say ‘enough’, come forward and tell everybody, wear a sign, let the world know. Maybe that will help.” Harvey Milk, 1978

“I fully realize that a person who stands for what I stand for, an activist, a gay activist, becomes the target or the potential target for a person who is insecure, terrified, afraid, or very disturbed with themselves.” Harvey Milk, on a tape he made to be played in the event of his assassination

“If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet destroy every closet door.” Harvey Milk

“The fact is that more people have been slaughtered in the name of religion than for any other single reason. That, that my friends, is true perversion..” Harvey Milk

“I know that you cannot live on hope alone, but without it, life is not worth living. And you… And you… And you… Gotta give em hope.” Harvey Milk

“All men are created equal. No matter how hard you try, you can never erase those words.” Harvey Milk

“All young people, regardless of sexual orientation or identity, deserve a safe and supportive environment in which to achieve their full potential.” Harvey Milk

“It takes no compromising to give people their rights. It takes no money to respect the individual. It takes no survey to remove repressions.” Harvey Milk, in a 1973 speech during his first unsuccessful run for supervisor

“All over the country, they’re reading about me, and the story doesn’t center on me being gay. It’s just about a gay person who is doing his job.” Harvey Milk

“I have tasted freedom. I will not give up that which I have tasted. I have a lot more to drink. For that reason, the political numbers game will be played. I know the rules of their game now and how to play it.” Harvey Milk

We are coming out to tell the truths about gays, for I am tired of the conspiracy of silence, so I'm going to talk about it. And I want you to talk about it.

We will not win our rights by staying quietly in our closets.

You can stand around and throw bricks at Silly Hall or you can take it over. Well, here we are.
- Before being sworn in as San Franciso Supervisor (8 January 1978)


Memphis LGBT community:
