The “Doodler” or “Black Doodler” was an unidentified serial killer who is believed to have killed as many as 14 gay men in San Francisco in the 1970′s. He was given this nickname due to the very disturbing fact that he would draw his victims before having sex with them and then brutally stabbing them to death. He met his victims in various nightclubs, and at a time when it was difficult to come out as being gay due to prejudice, three men he attacked and survived refused to come forward to testify out of fear of how the community would react to them being gay. One of the surviving victims was said to be an entertainer while another was said to be a US diplomat. Harvey Milk, the Mayor of San Francisco, who was also a gay man himself came forward to offer empathy and support to the surviving victims - “I can understand their position. I respect the pressure society has put on them… my feeling is that they don’t want to be exposed.” The case still remains unsolved.

If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet destroy every closet door.
—  Harvey Bernard Milk (1930 - 1978), American politician who became the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in California, when he won a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Politics and gay activism were not his early interests; he was not open about his homosexuality and did not participate in civic matters until around the age of 40, after his experiences in the counterculture of the 1960s.  Milk moved from New York City to settle in San Francisco in 1972 amid a migration of gay men to the Castro District. He took advantage of the growing political and economic power of the neighborhood to promote his interests, and ran unsuccessfully for political office three times. His theatrical campaigns earned him increasing popularity, and Milk won a seat as a city supervisor in 1977.  Milk served almost 11 months in office and was responsible for passing a stringent gay rights ordinance for the city. On November 27, 1978, Milk and Mayor George Moscone were assassinated by Dan White, another city supervisor who had recently resigned but wanted his job back. Despite his short career in politics, Milk became an icon in San Francisco and a martyr in the gay community.  In 2002, Milk was called “the most famous and most significantly open LGBT official ever elected in the United States”.  Milk was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009.

companions react to sole being a kick-ass parent with a baby on their back? (basically the spouse is missing instead of Shaun, so Shaun and sole go looking for them)

This might be what you’re looking for? This one won’t be as long.  

Preston: He respect’s them even more. It’s hard being a parent on your own in the common wealth.And when he’s alone, he mutters something like a prayer for them both. He also makes faces at Shaun while walking behind the general. 

Piper: Her first reaction was “Aww!”. But after she learned of what had happened to Sole and Shaun, you can bet she wrote about it, and made sure to let everyone know just how bad the institute is. She even let’s Shaun wear her hat. 

Cait: She never really was around kids, but Shaun and her? They’re both fighters, she feels a sort of bond to Shaun. With her childhood, she feel’s determined to make sure this kid doesn’t turn out like her. Plus she like’s holding him sometimes. 

Hancock: Hancock feels a great deal of respect for Sole, so he helps them however he can. Using his position as mayor to find baby milk and diapers and making sure they’re both eating right. And when Sole goes out in the world, you can bet Uncle Hancock is watching him. He loves the little guy, even though he spit up on his coat. 

Danse: The brotherhood doesn’t have infants, so he isn’t sure how to act around Shaun. But for Sole, he has respect and admires their courage. He imagines it to be difficult to be on your own with a child, and promises to aid them in their search of their spouse. He never holds Shaun though, he’s to scared he’ll be crushed in his power armor. 

Macready: He knows what Sole is feeling better than anyone, so he’s their shoulder to cry on when things get tough. When they need sleep but Shaun is fussy, he’s there to hold him. And when he learns of what the institute did to these two, he makes a promise to help them be a family again.
