May 22 is Harvey Milk Day
What is Harvey Milk Day?
Harvey Milk Day is a day to commemerate an extraordinary leader whose courageous work to end discrimination against the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community in the 1970s set the stage for many of the civil rights advances we see today.
Who was Harvey Milk?
Harvey Milk was an activist, organizer, and the first openly gay man elected to public office in the country as a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in the late 1970s. Harvey Milk came out and started organizing against discrimination of gay and lesbian business owners in the Castro District of San Francisco, and against the Briggs Initiative (this was an initiative on the California state ballot in 1978 that would have banned gays and lesbians from working in California schools). Milk was responsible for passing gay rights ordinances for the city of San Francisco and served eleven months in office before he was assassinated on November 27, 1978, along with San Francisco Mayor George Moscone. We celebrate Harvey Milk Day on his birthday, May 22.
Kim and I had a wonderful conversation about acceptance, how difficult it is to be a teen, as well as community support.
Kim Z is a mom to a teenager who identifies as Transgender. Her beautiful daughter came out to her 2 1/2 years ago and she was immediately catapulted into the world of what it means to identify as Transgender. She is passionate about sharing her story with others who touch the lives of transgender individuals.
May 17 International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia
Since 2005, May 17th has been dedicated to the International Day Against Homophobia, and Transphobia, marking the day in 1990 when the World Health Organization removed homosexuality from its list of mental disorders.
It constitutes an annual landmark to draw the attention of decision-makers, the media, the public, opinion leaders, and local authorities to the violence and discrimination experienced by LGBT2QI+ people internationally.
May 17 is now celebrated in more than 130 countries, including 37 where same-sex acts are illegal. These mobilizations unite millions of people in support of the recognition of human rights for all, irrespective of sexual orientation or gender identity, or expression.
The International Day Against Homophobia, and Transphobia is not one centralized campaign; rather it is a moment that everyone can take advantage of to take action.
