Harvey Milk Day

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Harvey Milk Day is organized by the Harvey Milk Foundation and celebrated each year on May 22 in memory of Harvey Milk, a gay rights activist assassinated in 1978. Harvey Milk was a prominent gay activist during the twentieth century. He ran for office three times before becoming the first openly gay person elected into California public office, where he acted as a city supervisor.[1] Harvey Milk Day came about as a day to remember and teach about Milk's life and his work to stop the discrimination against LGBTQ+ people.[2]

California Day of Special Significance

In California, Harvey Milk Day is recognized by the state's government as a day of special significance for public schools.[3][4] The day was established by the California legislature and signed into law by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2009 after a series of petitions led by gay rights activist Daren I. Ball[5] and in the wake of the award-winning feature film Milk retracing Milk's life.[6][7][8]
