FORTY YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH TODAY

THANKFUL TO THIS DAY OF HIS LEADING EXAMPLE

If you go back in time and realize the overall atmosphere and environment around the LGBTQ community in this nation, you will realize the Harvey Milk was a groundbreaking figure.

To this day, his effect is still felt.

More so in the 2018 midterm elections when a significant number of LGBTQ candidates achieved their goal of being elected to the post they were running for.

 Thank you, Mr. Milk!!

Gay rights pioneer Harvey Milk was assassinated on Nov. 27, 1978, just one year after becoming California’s first openly gay elected official

“It’s not my victory, it’s yours and yours and yours”

Harvey Milk said after winning a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in late 1977.

“If a gay can win, it means there is hope that the system can work for all minorities if we fight. We’ve given them hope.”

A year after delivering that speech and making history as the first openly gay elected official in California – and one of the first in the country – Milk was gunned down at San Francisco City Hall on Nov. 27, 1978.

He was just 48.

But during his short time in office, Milk made his mark. He helped to pass the country’s first gay rights ordinance, which sparked the legal LGBTQ-rights revolution that has since resulted in a nationwide right to same-sex marriage and an increasing number of LGBTQ-rights protections in cities and states across the country.
Milk also undoubtedly inspired future generations of LGBTQ Americans to enter politics.

Earlier this month, 40 years after his death and decades after his history-making election, a record-breaking “rainbow wave” of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans followed in his footsteps by running for office and winning.

SOUTH OF THE BORDER CHAOS

~U.S. Border Patrol Uses Tear Gas to Disperse Migrant Caravan~

I can’t believe this is happening … my heart brakes at the sight of people in need treated like animals and, yes, ‘vermin‘ … by the mighty, imperialistic US of A!

The strong, the mighty, the proud.

These are the people that the mighty need to fear and fend off?

A supposedly ‘Christian nation‘ who welcomed immigrants.
I so hate the face that America is showing to the world … guess the mask fell off!!

US Border Patrol agents used tear gas to disperse hundreds of Central American migrants in the Mexican city of Tijuana who made a rush for the border fence, as tension builds over the diminishing prospects for asylum seekers trying to enter the country.

Traffic at the border crossing between San Diego and Tijuana has been suspended

THE PUERTO RICAN EXPERIENCE

The Indian, Spanish and African races came together on the island of Puerto Rico, contributing their blood and traditions to the formation of the Puerto Rican culture.

The original inhabitants of Puerto Rico at the time of the Spanish conquest were the Taíno and Carib Indian-tribes.

We are young and old, we are women and men, we are professionals and blue collar workers, we are farmers and doctors, we are architects and farmers, we are actors and painters.

We are a bit of everything!!
