22nd May 2013 – Harvey Milk Day

Celebration: Harvey Milk Day

Mission: Watch “Milk”

Status: Failed

Notes: Harvey Milk, born in New York on this day in 1930, was the first openly gay politician to be elected to office in California. Serving on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors from January 1978, he was assassinated before the year was out. There was a movie of his life, called Milk and made in 2008, but I didn’t watch it.
