If you live in California, today is Harvey Milk Day - in honor of the gay politician assassinated in 1978. Milk is often held up as a hero of the LGBT movement.
If you don't live in California, find a way to celebrate anyhow. I uploaded a graphic from GLAAD to my fan page on Facebook. Feel free to go share it or swipe it for your own use. (I'd have linked them directly but couldn't find it on their site or their own Facebook page.)
