Today would have been Harvey Milk’s 87th birthday.

I was one year old in 1978, the year he and Mayor George Moscone were assassinated, living with my immigrant parents in the Mission.

It wasn’t until I was a teenager that I truly learned about Harvey. One night, I remember anxiously watching “The Times of Harvey Milk” on KQED, hoping no one in my family would walk in on me. I didn’t yet proudly identify as gay, but I connected with him and his vision for the world.

Harvey’s story gave me hope.
