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."

Gay brothers and sisters,… You must come out. Come out… to your parents… I know that it is hard and will hurt them but think about how they will hurt you in the voting booth!

Come out to your relatives… come out to your friends… if indeed they are your friends. Come out to your neighbors… to your fellow workers… to the people who work where you eat and shop… come out only to the people you know, and who know you. Not to anyone else. But once and for all, break down the myths, destroy the lies and distortions.

For your sake. For their sake. For the sake of the youngsters who are becoming scared by the votes from Dade to Eugene.

Harvey Milk, from “That’s What America Is,” speech given on Gay Freedom Day, June 25th, 1978 in San Francisco
