This Sunday, November 27, we will gather at Harvey Milk Plaza at 6:30pm for our annual remembrance of two of our City's great leaders -- Supervisor Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone.
As we reflect on the mass shooting at Pulse in Orlando earlier this year and grapple with the election of a President who campaigned on hateful rhetoric targeting women, Muslims, immigrants, the LGBTQ community and people with disabilities, it is more important than ever for us to band together and fight back. Harvey inspired us with a message of hope -- a message that resonates even more in these turbulent and uncertain times where our community and our rights are under attack.
On Sunday, we will gather together as an LGBTQ community in memory of Harvey Milk - a trailblazing leader who showed us that if we band together and fight back, we can create powerful change. As we remember and honor Harvey's legacy, now is the time for us to come together and move forward in coalition to fight back -- for our community, for our city, and for our country.
The candlelight vigil will include reflections from LGBTQ community members and be followed by a march to Harvey's camera shop on Castro Street. If you would like to help us assemble the flower shrine to Harvey please arrive at Harvey Milk Plaza at 5pm. Bring friends, bring family and bring candles!
