-LCR San Diego was in attendance at the Harvey Milk Breakfast and Reception. Over 1,000 of our community was in attendance @ the breakfast sharing in the message of equality. We would like to share a quote from Academy Award winner Dustin Lance Black. Harvey Milk was "working for all of us because he understood something-it's simple but it is brilliant-that together we are unbeatable, separate we are vulnerable. So we have to have each others backs."
