Oscar winner Sean Penn is pushing for the late, great gay politician Harvey Milk's birthday, May 22nd, to be recognised as a 'day of significance' by the state of California.
Penn won this year's best actor Oscar for his performance as Harvey in Gus Van Sant's Milk.
California state senator Mark Leno plans to reintroduce a bill with Sean by his side designating Milk's birthday a 'day of significance.
The governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger, vetoed the same bill last year.
Arnold said Milk should be honored in San Francisco but not statewide.
Hopefully, Arnold will be less lame this year and will show support for the bill!
