"relevant?" tag under Legacy[edit]

There's a [relevant?] tag in the Legacy section questioning whether Milk opposing the closing of an elementary school is relevant. Currently, the surrounding paragraph explains the rationale for that detail's inclusion - Milk supported the inclusion of everyone in his neighborhood, even the non-gay people with kids who would be using an elementary school. I propose removing the tag. 2603:8080:6E00:F73B:7449:23D7:EAD0:CBD9 (talk) 19:57, 25 July 2021 (UTC)

Milk sent a letter to defend Rev. Jones in February '78, not in '76[edit]

The article mentions the letter Milk sent to President Carter in the paragraph about the 1976 election. In fact, this letter (which can be read here) was sent in February 1978, while Jones had been holding Timothy Stoen's son by pretending to be the legitimate father of the child, nine months before the Peoples Temple suicide in Guyana. I suggest moving this sentence to the proper section, and rewording with adequate references it to avoid any further misunderstanding (or whitewashing), perhaps by taking Timothy_Stoen#Media_spotlight as an example.

Dank, Gleeanon409, Funcrunch and other authors of the article: any comment? Alcaios (talk) 21:26, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
I didn't get an answer —–— not surprising. Alcaios (talk) 19:59, 17 July 2020 (UTC)
Added to the article – I reached de facto consensus since I'm the only one active in this discussion. I insist we should provide context for the letter: Jones had been holding Timothy Stoen's son – Milk denounced Stoen, stating that former Temple members were trying to damage Jones' reputation with "apparent bold-faced lies". I'll wait for your answers, but I shall add it to the article myself if nobody answers as it happened last time. Alcaios (talk) 21:22, 18 November 2020 (UTC)

Milk's complicity in the child murder in Guyana and attacking victims should be showcased more prominently.
