Happy birthday Harvey MilkMay 22nd, 2012 at Tue, 22nd, 2012 at 11:04 am by Gabrielle Nomura
Harvey Milk dreamed for a tomorrow filled with the hope for equality and a world without hate. His 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.
