I have a special Sunday post I wanted to share with my readers celebrating one of my heroes, Harvey Milk, on his birthday today. So what you ask does bridal fashion have to do with the first openly gay ever to be elected to office? Bridal fashion nada--Harvey Milk's fashion sense was sub zero. What he did for marriage though! Did you know the images below wouldn't even be considered by some as serious candidates for wedding inspiration 20 years back? It took decades for Milk's dream of gay rights to hit the mainstream. Now almost every state in the union authorizes as well as celebrates gay marriages. It's just too bad he couldn't have been with us to enjoy the whole journey. Happy Birthday Harvey, wherever you are and thank you for everything you did to make this a better world . . . .
