Famous

30 Oct

Last night I was reminded of how famous I am. I often glitz (!) around The Castro, and a few months ago, I happened to catch Sean Penn filming a couple scenes for -what was then an upcoming film- Milk. I was star-struck. The studio campaign office for the film about Harvey Milk (a gay SF city official, unofficial Mayor of The Castro, who was murdered in city hall in the 70s) was right next to my friend’s apartment. So pretty much, as I see it, I’m in the movie. Last night was the premier of the film at The Castro Street Theater.  I’m talkin’ lots of limos, lights, cameras, Hollywood elite. A block away from where I was standing. Honestly, I’m shocked I wasn’t invited. Whatever.

I was sitting a block down to the left eatting dinner.

 So also, about fame, and famous people… Forbes’ Top-Earning Dead Celebrities List was released today… they are:

    […] To me, this means a commitment and an openness to equality. That’s what I meant – I believe in these things, just as he did. On this same note, Milk took home two Oscars, which makes me even more famous! […]
