I want to thank my mom who has always loved me for who I am, even when
there was pressure not to. But most of all, if Harvey had not been taken from us
30 years ago, I think he’d want me to say to all of the gay and lesbian kids out
there tonight who have been told that they are less than by their churches or by
the government or by their families that you are beautiful, wonderful creatures
of value and that no matter what anyone tells you, God does love you

--Dustin Lance Black, accepting his Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for Milk.

Gay kids can't ever hear that God loves them too often.
