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

Nov. 27, 2018 / 9:10 AM EST
By Tim Fitzsimons

“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.

Plight of Orangutans

~TOO POLITICAL?~

In spite of the political and daily problems the United Kingdom seems to be going through, it looks their concept of political advertisement goes along the correct path.

Can the US learn a lesson here?

I’m afraid not!

This ad violate laws against political advertising.

U.K. Ad Highlighting Plight of Orangutans Is Deemed Too ‘Political’ to Air
The animated commercial for the food retailer Iceland, featuring a baby orangutan, noted that the palm oil industry contributed to the destruction of rain forests and habitats.

“There’s a Rang-tan in my bedroom, and I don’t know what to do,” the British actress Emma Thompson says, lending her voice to a young girl in an animated advertisement for Iceland, a food retailer in Britain.

It turns out the “Rang-tan” is a baby orangutan that has lost its mother and the rain forest it once called home, and that it no longer has a place to live.

img_4366

The story line might seem harmless enough, but the commercial wasn’t cleared this week to air on British TV because it was deemed to violate laws against political advertising.

The decision ignited a firestorm on social media in Britain and led to a wildly popular petition demanding that it be overturned. And to many in the United States, where more than $3 billion was spent on political advertising for the recent midterm elections, the reaction was total bafflement.

Really, many wondered, can political advertising be banned?

In return, Ellen had a surprise for Michelle. 

You can watch it below.

It’s invaluable for me.

MICHAEL BUBBLE STAND UP TO CANCER

THE LOVE OF A FAMILY

There’s strength in numbers.

The whole family moved to be together and hold their little man in a loving embrace and support of their family.

Michael Bublé joined James Corden in the Carpool Karaoke lane to support a cause near and dear to his heart. First broadcast in the UK as part of a Stand Up to Cancer special, the Canadian crooner spoke to the Late Late Show host about his son Noah, who was previously diagnosed with cancer in 2016.

Bublé said that when they received the news about his son Noah’s cancer diagnosis in 2016, his “whole life ended.”

“It’s so hard to have to acknowledge it because it’s so painful to talk about,” he said.

Holding back tears, he talked about what his family went through and how all of them moved to California to get the best treatment for Noah, who has since been in remission.

“When this all started, I became the strength to somehow pull us and lift us and to be positive,” Buble told Corden.

“When they got the cancer out and the chemo was done and they said, ‘We did it, it’s good, he’s okay,’ I fell, I just fell. My wife picks me up now.”

Bublé encouraged viewers to contribute to Stand Up to Cancer before he and Corden ended the emotional Carpool Karaoke session with a stirring rendition of “Home.”
