"Oh my God, this was not an easy film to make. I have to thank all the
real life people who shared their stories with me... When I was 13
years old my beautiful mother and father moved me from a conservative
Mormon home in San Antonio, Texas to California and I heard the story
of Harvey Milk. And it gave me hope, hope to live my life, gave me the
hope to live my life openly as who I am. And maybe even I can fall in
love and get married. I want to thank my Mom who always loved me for
who I am even when there was pressure not to. If Harvey had been alive
today, I think he'd want me to say to all the gay and lesbian kids out
there that have been told that they are less than by their churches,
their government or their families that they are beautiful, wonderful
creatures of value and no matter what anyone tells you, God does love
you and that very soon I promise you, you will have equal rights,
federally, across this great nation of ours"
