Milk in Action on Castro Street

From our friend Jeremy at Good As You comes this video of Castro Street, which captures a portion of the filming of Gus van Sant's Milk. Jeremy notes: "...you can hear for the first time just how much Penn has nailed the slain leader's unique voice."

You can also see activist Cleve Jones briefly alongside Emile Hirsch, the actor who plays him in the film.

  1. Okay, those queens knew all about the Church Lady skit and the fact that Sean Penn used to punch out paparazzi during the Madonna years but they weren't *quite* sure why Cleve Jones was famous. Sad.

  2. I was thinkin' the same thing. "Some famous consultant. What was he famous for? The AIDS quilt or something". Sigh.

    Blathering queens supposedly lived in the Castro for 15 years? Bad fag.

  3. Cleve Jones was an activist in the 1970's and 1980's in San Francisco. He was always in the lead at protest marches and rallies with his bullhorn. In some ways he was Harvey Milk's right-hand man and later he became an aide to Supervisor Milk. In the early days of AIDS, when the was no government response to the epidemic, he started the "Names Project" and created the AIDS Quilt to remind the world of the huge number of gay men dying of AIDS. Jones has dedicated his life to obtaining equal civil rights for gays and other oppressed people.

  4. In 1978, I helped put together a new S.F. gay newspaper called the Gazette. I was a photographer, sports editor and handle their public relations. It was owned by a couple of wealthy conservative gay men. I talked them into speaking with Cleve Jones, about doing a column aimed at young gay college students. Cleve
    turned it down. I took a photo of Cleve, at that meeting who was 19 at the time. Looking back... we all were lucky to be involved in a community with many facets and visionaries like Harvey and Cleve.
