    The Late Harvey Milk, the first openly gay elected government office holder, encouraged gay people from all professions of life - and we're in every profession there is, even Republican politics - to stand up and be counted. He knew that was the only way we would ever see our rights.

    I must admit, it was only recently that I came out at my job and told my GM that I was gay. She was very supportive.

    I do think that gay people can come out much easier now, and believe me that means a lot coming from someone who knew what being deep in the closet was all about.
