Harvey Milk Memorial - Nov. 27, 2012

As is tradition, the Milk Club hosted the Harvey Milk altar and vigil at Jane Warner Plaza again this year on the anniversary of Harvey Milk and George Moscone's assassinations. This year the public gathered at City Hall (hosted by the Harvey Milk Foundation) and marched up Market Street by candlelight to the vigil. Speakers at the vigil included Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, Supervisors David Campos and Christina Olague, activist Cyd Nova, and Milk Club President Anna Conda. A procession led by the Brass Liberation Orchestra led the vigil to Harvey Milk's old camera shop. Thanks to everyone who came out for a for this beautiful and very important memorial. Here are some photos and articles from the evening.
