30 Days of Pride: Harvey Milk

June 1st kicked off Pride Month! So, for the next 30 days let's recognize the people who played pivotal roles in LGBTQ history.


Harvey Milk was born in New York in 1930, and became a prominent gay rights activist.

He found his voice in gay rights activism after moving to San Francisco in 1972.

In 1977, he became the first openly gay person elected to public office, winning a seat on the San Francisco City Council Board. He had previously run for the seat twice, unsuccessfully.

Milk was shot and killed in 1978 by Dan White, a fellow City Council board member."
