I enjoyed the Oscars.
I always do.
I'm glad Slumdog Millionaire won. I bet they're celebrating in the slums of Mumbai tonight.
I'm happy that Sean Penn won best actor for Milk. He deserved it. Although I was surprised he didn't mention the man he played. That could only happen to a gay hero eh?
I love Kate Winslet.
I knew I'd get choked up when Heath Ledger won, and his family accepted his Oscar.
But the speech that REALLY moved me was Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black's message to the gay youth of America.....
If Harvey had not been taken from us thirty years ago I think he'd want me to say to all the gay and lesbian kids out there tonight who have been told that they are LESS THAN by their churches, by their government, or by their families. That you are beautiful wonderful creatures of value. And that no matter what anybody tells you God does love you.
Yup. I think he would. Well said Dustin.
I bet gay kids all over the world are feeling good ...or just a bit better tonight.
Harvey would have been proud of you....
