Gay Freedom Day, San Francisco, CA, June 1976, photo by Harvey Milk
"Harvey Milk bought his 35mm Nikon range-finder - a Nippon Kogaku - while serving in the Navy. Very few images exist from this time period. It was not until his return to New York City that Harvey actively began his hobby as a recreational photographer. Gay Freedom Day was always an inspiring subject for Harvey Milk. There are many photographs in the archives of street “happenings" and public gatherings. The waiters at gay-friendly Momma Fortuna’s restaurant in the Haight would often dress in drag and travel in packs thrilling audiences at various public events with their bombastic style of flailing and vamping."

"Today, Dan White was essentially patted on the back. He was convicted of manslaughter — what you get for hit and run. We all know this violence has touched all of us. It was not manslaughter.
I was there that day at City Hall. I saw what the violence did. It was not manslaughter, it was murder.”

Harvey Milk.
He fought for gay people, against war and for workers and the poor. He stood with women, immigrants, seniors and youth. He forged coalitions that built power for ordinary men and women and moved us all forward with his humor, compassion and great love for his people. — Cleve Jones
