Harvey Milk was the nation’s first openly gay person elected to public office. He served as a San Francisco City and County supervisor. He served almost 11 months in office and was responsible for passing a stringent gay rights ordinance for the city. He fought for equality, lived a courageous life and inspired many until his assassination on Nov. 27, 1978.
Milk’s political career centered on making government responsive to individuals, gay liberation and the importance of individual neighborhoods to the city of San Francisco as a whole.
