Harvey Milk Day
May 22 all-day
Harvey Milk Day @ FHMP

“It takes no compromise to give people their rights…it takes no money to respect the individual. It takes no political deal to give people freedom. It takes no survey to remove repression.” – Harvey Milk

In 1973, Harvey Milk declared he was going to run for the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. He lost the election but it didn’t prevent him from trying to run for public office again. In 1975, he tried to run again for the same seat and lost again – although this time his loss was by a much slimmer margin. However, he gained valuable experience from his political run and had become somewhat of a political force in the gay community.

In 1977, Harvey Milk ran again and this time, he won a seat on the San Francisco City-County Board. On January 9, 1978, he was inaugurated and became not only San Francisco’s first openly gay officer but also the first openly gay individual to be elected to public office in the U.S.

“If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet destroy every closet door.” – Harvey Milk

1978 Assassination

Harvey understood that the LGBT community was part of something larger, and creating something special here will inspire others to carry on the global movement for peace and social justice.” – Cleve Jones

National Coming Out Day
Oct 11 all-day
National Coming Out Day

National Coming Out Day is an annual LGBTQ awareness day observed on October 11 (and October 12 in some parts of the world).

Founded in the United States in 1988, the initial idea was grounded in the feminist and gay liberation spirit of a most basic form of activism, that being voluntary self-disclosure as a lesbian, gay, or bisexual sexual orientation, and also transgender, genderqueer, or other non-mainstream gender identity, in other words, coming out to family, friends and colleagues, and living life openly.

Enculturated and normalized homophobia thrives in an atmosphere of silence and ignorance. Therefore, once people become aware that they have loved ones who are LGBTQ, they are far less likely to maintain homophobic or oppressive behaviors.
