Sixty-one years ago, Joseph Scott Smith was born in Key West, Florida.

Twenty-four years ago, Dan White committed suicide by inhaling carbon monoxide from his car's exhaust pipe in his closed garage. He was survived by his wife, Mary Ann, and their three children, Charlie, Rory and Laura, ages seven, four, and ten months.

It's interesting to me that you posted this. I was just thinking about Harvey last night. One of my best guy friends finally came out to me. I've always known but he came out and admitted it to me.
I'm so proud of him. It's a shame we don't have another man like Harvey around to let my friend know it's going to be okay. He's in one of those families who say being gay is a 'Sin'
And if he ever came out to hsi family everyone he knows would shun him. :(

Thank you for posting this. The world needs more men like Harvey Milk. The world also needs more supportive, activist partners like Scott. :) And we need fewer Dan White's, without a doubt.
