San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk were assassinated 35 years ago today. To mark the occasion, a candlelight vigil will start at Milk Plaza at 7pm followed by a candlelight march down Market Street to City Hall. Other highlights? A performance by the Gay Men's Chorus, a speech by Oscar-winning Dustin Lance Black (Milk), and a recorded message from Harvey Milk.
The vigil's official Facebook page has more:
Harvey and George were the brightest beacons of hope for San Francisco’s disenfranchised and displaced. But more than that, they represented the spirit of San Francisco, a city for anyone and everyone, welcoming to all, affordable to all, with justice for all. 35 years later, the time has come again for us to gather, one and all, to remember Harvey and George. More importantly, the time has come to make their vision of a city of hope come alive. Now more than ever, we have to give each other hope.
