Texas: Drink Your “Milk” Somewhere Else

Alan Stock, the CEO of Cinemark, a Texas-based theater chain, donated $9,999 in support of California’s Proposition 8, the initiative that seeks to remove the constitutional rights of gays and lesbians to marry.

(Prop. 8 passed by a narrow margin, but the legality of the initiative is slated to be reviewed by the state’s supreme court.)

Now his theaters stand to profit from the showing of Milk, Gus Van Sant’s powerful new movie about gay civil rights leader Harvey Milk.

Protests are heating up in Texas and the LGBT community, and its supporters, are calling for a boycott of the theaters.
