Andrew Singer ’00 and Matt Sandoval ’99 thanked the straight participants of the Millennium March. They thanked us for the “courage and character” to support the march despite the “the derision and suspicion that one risks by attending a queer event.” Thanks for the thanks, but still I insist that it is the openly gay community that ought to be thanked. Those who are pridefully open about who they are teach us the important lesson that we must have faith in our true selves. They also remind us that the great, epic stands for rights are not limited to history books but unravel in our own day as gays, lesbians and free-thinkers demand dignity for all.
