On May 22nd, California will observe the first annual Harvey Milk Day
, honoring the life of the first out gay person to be elected to any public office. When he was murdered by fellow San Francisco Supervisor Dan White, he left a legacy of out and proud organizing that is celebrated by the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer movement today. Many Americans got the chance to learn about Harvey when the film Milk was released in 2008, but even that was only a glimpse.
