This Week In Gay News: San Francisco Chronicle Says Penn is superb as the gay Harvey Milk

It would appear that Harvey Milk is coming back into vogue among gays,  and Sean Penn is the vehicle to making this story timely once again.  I am not certain that I see Milk as a gay hero:  much of the story surrounding his assassination would seem to be political merely.  I would not like to think that the gays are having another  Matthew Shepard moment.  Shephard was the gay student beaten to death,  supposedly in an act of homophobic hate.  A closer look at the story proved it may well have been drug-related (Andrew Sullivan himself did not like Shephard being championed as a gay victim).  Gay Agenda tactics?
