On what would have been his 92nd birthday, Sunday, May 22nd the life and legacy of the “Mayor of Castro Street” lives on, as the Harvey Milk LGBTQ Democratic Club, the Castro LGBTQ Cultural District, the Castro Community Benefit District, the Friends of Harvey Milk Plaza, and the Castro Merchants Association kicks off a day of celebration, education, activism, and community.
Programming starts at noon and will be kicked off by those who knew Harvey best – his friends and colleagues, including Kent Denning and Medora Payne Sobottka. They will be joined by queer community and elected officials, who in large part due to trailblazers like Milk, can continue the fight to make the LGBTQ community heard and seen in City Hall and beyond. Following the kickoff, our community block party powered by BAAAHS will bring the beats and festivities back to the streets of Castro – Harvey’s home.
Dulce de Leche will host the event, spinning tunes will be DJ Bus Station John and DJ Carnita!
And across the street, you can take a virtual tour of the new memorial at Harvey Milk Plaza! You can stand at select locations and experience what it will really feels like! You really don't want to miss this special sneak peek!
Hope to see you on Sunday!
