Celebrating LGBTQI+ Pride Month

Harvey MilkHarvey Milk was born on May 22, 1930 in Woodmere, New York. His father William Harvey, a Lithuanian born, served in the U.S. Navy, and his mother Minerva of Lithuanian heritage also served during World War I as “Yoemanette.” Harvey Milk was a popular student who had interests in opera and football, and he knew he was gay by the time he attended Bayshore high school. While attending college at New York State College for Teachers (now State University of New York) in Albany, Harvey Milk studied math and history, and he began to question issues of diversity with a reflection on the lessons learned from the World War. Harvey Milk enlisted in the Navy and was based in San Diego, and in 1955, he had to resign as lieutenant junior grade after he was officially questioned about his sexuality. Harvey Milk moved to San Francisco, where he opened a camera store on Castro street, and Milk’s sense of humor and theatricality made him a popular figure. Harvey Milk won a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977, which made him the first openly gay elected officials in the United States.
