Bay Area Castro San Francisco

Salute to Harvey Milk

Lights, music, and remembrance. Many gathered in Castro on the night of Wednesday November 8 to celebrate and remember the one and only Harvey Milk and the 40th anniversary of his election to the SF Board of Supervisors as the first openly gay elected official in California. Harvey Milk Plaza was filled with spectators who were hypnotized by both the fifteen colored beams that made up the rainbow light installation and “Hope Will Never Be Silent” neon sign on top of the SoulCycle Building in Castro. Harvey Milk is not only an icon of the Castro District in San Francisco and LBGTQ community, he also represents drive, passion, determination and of course hope to anyone who seeks an example that anything is possible.
