Harvey Milk Breakfast, Palm Springs, May 22, 2012
Harvey Milk’s ground-breaking election in 1977 as one of the world’s first openly gay elected officials, and its most visible one, symbolized the freedom to live life with authenticity to millions of LGBT women and men around the world.
Harvey served less than a year in public office before his brutal assassination but his life profoundly changed a city, state, nation and a global community. His courage, passion and sense of justice rocked a country and stirred the very core of a put down and pushed out community, bringing forward new hope and a new vision of freedom.
