Celebrating Harvey Milk on His 86th Birthday

by Hayley Miller May 22, 2016

Today, HRC honors the life and legacy of LGBT hero and leader Harvey Milk who would have been 86-years-old today. In 1977, Milk made history when he was elected to serve as a San Francisco City Supervisor and became one of the first openly LGBT elected officials in the country. Less than a year later, fellow supervisor Dan White assassinated Milk, as well as San Francisco Mayor George Moscone, on November 28, 1978. 

Milk’s legacy lives on through LGBT activists across the world. He envisioned a place where all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, were treated equally.

“Hope will never be silent,” he famously stated.

The San Francisco HRC Action Center and Store in the historic Castro District is located in Milk's former camera shop. In addition to keeping LGBT individuals and allies informed on national issues, the action center engages advocates to push leaders at all levels in support of equality.   

Today, we honor his legacy, vision and sacrifice.
