Joe Campbell Relationship[edit]

I changed seven years younger to "nearly six years younger." Campbell was born October 4, 1936. [1] David Cary Hart (talk) 20:18, 20 December 2019 (UTC)


Best headline I've seen in years[edit]

"The Navy made Harvey Milk resign for being gay. Now they’re going to name a ship after him." [1] I see we already have a mention of the ship under "Legacy", and we have a debunking of the story that the Navy discharged him for being gay. But still, you gotta love this headline - what a marvelous distillation of how things have changed in American society! -- MelanieN (talk) 18:54, 16 December 2019 (UTC)

Anita Bryant[edit]

Anita Bryant is mentioned but her name isn't linked.

Milk sent a letter to defend Rev. Jones in February '78, not in '76[edit]

The article mentions the letter Milk sent to President Carter in the paragraph about the 1976 election. In fact, this letter (which can be read here) was sent in February 1978, while Jones had been holding Timothy Stoen's son by pretending to be the legitimate father of the child, nine months before the Peoples Temple suicide in Guyana. I suggest moving this sentence to the proper section, and rewording with adequate references it to avoid any further misunderstanding (or whitewashing), perhaps by taking Timothy_Stoen#Media_spotlight as an example.

Dank, Gleeanon409, Funcrunch and other authors of the article: any comment? Alcaios (talk) 21:26, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
I didn't get an answer —–— not surprising. Alcaios (talk) 19:59, 17 July 2020 (UTC)
