Harvey Milk — American Politician born on May 22, 1930, died on November 27, 1978

Harvey Bernard Milk was an American politician who became the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in California, when he won a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Politics and gay activism were not his early interests; he was not open about his homosexuality and did not participate in civic matters until around the age of 40, after his experiences in the counterculture of the 1960s...

It takes no compromising to give people their rights. It takes no money to respect the individual. It takes no survey to remove repressions.
Hope will never be silent.
Burst down those closet doors once and for all, and stand up and start to fight.
My name is Harvey Milk and I'm here to recruit you.
Coming out is the most political thing you can do.
