There's something very weird about this story. It's very celebrated and iconic-feeling, like this guy is a hero of some sort. He says some weird things, equating the "gay community" and "African Americans" in his political ambitions. They have the writer of "Milk" say something about him. It's bizarre.

He may be "the most powerful Republican in history to identify as gay," but it sure took him long enough, while his party strove to deny gay people their civil rights.
