A Queer Election: What Just Happened?

Bye bye, baby.


We in the Harvey Milk Club hope you are all rested by now because the 2020 elections have been one hell of a roller coaster!

And when all is said and done, the incumbent will be ejected from The White House one way or another. And our Club's endorsed presidential ticket, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, will soon be sworn into office and tasked will cleaning up the mess and healing our country's bloody wounds.

Our national nightmare is almost over. Hopefully.

Congratulations to District 1 Supervisor-elect Connie Chan!


Overall, November's election results have been mixed but mostly positive, especially at the local level. In fact, "Progressives are winning the Battle of San Francisco," according to 48 Hills.

Connie Chan's election to the Board of Supervisors certainly represents one of our progressive wins, despite sleazy, fly-by-night, fake tenant groups spending big bucks in District 1 to the contrary.

The Harvey Milk Club is proud of the grassroots (and mostly volunteer) support we offered Supervisor-elect Connie Chan, and we look forward to working with her at City Hall next year.


Join us at 7pm on Tuesday on Zoom as we discuss the November election results and what comes next.


We briefly discussed Connie Chan's win earlier, but what else happened on Election Day?

Join the Milk Club on Tuesday at 7pm as we discuss all of the election results (local, state, and federal) and what this election means for advancing our queer values in the not-so-distant future.

The Facebook Event details are here. And the Zoom details are here.

Our agenda includes:

1) Election results analysis, with a particular focus on local and state results with David Campos, Jane Kim, Joe Eskenazi and Chris Arvin.
2) Community Outreach efforts, including an open conversation on engaging in community service projects during off-election cycles.
3) Discussion on the upcoming 2021 E-Board elections.
4) Discussion for our Annual Harvey Milk Vigil for November 27th, which will be held virtually this year, due to COVID-19 concerns.
5) New Business.


Onward to 2021, queers! Onward:
