A long overdue, but fitting tribute to an American hero.
The full list of Medal of Freedom recipients, which can be found here, includes Senator Ted Kennedy, Billie Jean King and Stephen Hawking.
In his statement, Obama said each recipient was “an agent of change.” Harvey Milk sure was. So, this is another very nice gesture from the White House. I wonder if Harvey Milk would think this gesture is enough in the quest for LGBT equality. I don’t think so.
