Calif. school day would honor homosexual pioneer

Charlie Butts and Jody Brown - OneNewsNow -

The California State Senate is poised to vote on a bill making an official "homosexual day" in every public school. It would be called "Harvey Milk Day" in honor of the openly homosexual San Francisco Board of Supervisors member who was shot and killed in 1978 along with the city's mayor, George Moscone. S.B. 572, which was approved 7-to-2 out of committee last week, says observances conducted on May 22 should recognize Milk's "accomplishments as well as the contributions he made to this state" -- and that "all public schools and educational institutions are encouraged to observe...and...conduct suitable commemorative exercises."
