Harvey Milk, for anyone who still does not know, was the first openly gay elected official in the U.S. and an early champion of gay civil rights. He served on San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors for a year, until his assassination alongside Mayor George Moscone in November 1978. A film about his life directed by Gus Van Sant and featuring cameo appearances by about fifty of our friends will be released this fall.
The unveiling of the bust will take place at 6PM today in the rotunda at City Hall. The official program begins at 7PM.
The SF Chronicle describes the $84,000 sculpture thusly:
The bust sits atop a pedestal that includes three small reliefs depicting the spontaneous march and candlelight vigil the day Milk and Moscone were shot and killed by former Supervisor Dan White, an image of Milk in his Navy whites and the supervisor riding in a Gay Pride Parade on Market Street.
