Harvey Milk

On any visit to San Francisco, one must pay tribute to the legendary Harvey Milk who once said:  “If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet shatter every closet door.”  The first openly gay man to be elected to public office in San Francisco, Milk served as one of the most influential leaders of the GLBT movement.  And in the Castro district, you will find the most reverential Harvey Milk Plaza.

On Castro Street, the plaza honors the man whose revolutionary courage exemplified the qualities true leaders possess.  Under the Rainbow Flag that can be seen for miles, read the plaque about Harvey Milk, as well as the plaque that lists all of the GLBT elected San Francisco officials for whom Milk led the way.

After strolling through the plaza, visit the GLBT History Museum which eternally exhibits several of Harvey Milk’s personal belongings.  And when hunger strikes, be sure to eat at Harvey’s Restaurant & Bar.  Enjoy a burger and a beer at this place that was once The Elephant Walk and also the location of police riots after Harvey Milk’s and Mayor George Mascone’s murderer was only charged with manslaughter.  For sure, travelers, you simply cannot visit San Francisco without seeing evidence of the great Harvey Milk everywhere you go!
