Even though we're too vile to appear on screen in a film about his life, legacy, and popper sniffing -- no, we will not let it go, but thank you for asking -- we will honor the guy who was once known as the Mayor of Castro Street: former San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk.
Sure, some of the Castro's sex shops have removed phallic symbols from their storefront windows in order to protect the
tasteful children. So what if the neighborhood is a ghost of its former self? So is Harvey Milk! So, come and honor the past.Milk's presence will be felt at tonight's concert featuring Holly Near, SF Gay Men's Chorus, Dance Brigade, Shawna Virago, Keith Hennessy, and Melania DeMore.
Also scheduled to appear are Carole Migden and Mark Leno (singing a self-deprecating rendition of "Bosom Buddies" -- no, not really), Tommy Ammiano, Cecilia Chung (of the Transgender Law Center), and John Newsome (part of the loud group, ...And Castro For All)
More info? Gladly:
The Harvey Milk Club invites you to join us for the annual Harvey Milk Memorial March. This year, in addition to the candlelight march from Harvey Milk Plaza to the site of Milk’s former camera shop down the street, there will also be performances to celebrate his life. This occasion kicks off a year-long series of events leading up to the 30th anniversary of Milk’s assassination on November 27, 1978. The Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club was founded by Harvey Milk, and renamed in his honor.
WHEN: Tuesday November 27th [tonight!] at 5:30 PM
WHERE: Harvey Milk Plaza (corner of Castro & Market)
