The Harvey Milk Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Democratic Club, San Francisco’s largest Democratic Club, is known for both its progressive politics and its independence. Founded in 1976 as the San Francisco Gay Democratic Club, during a time when founding Democratic Clubs was the radical thing to do; It was the city’s first Democratic club with the word “gay” in its name. While other gay groups balked at supporting Harvey Milk’s bid for supervisor, and as one early member says, were uncomfortable talking about cocksucking, The Milk Club was a place for people to be political, left, and queer. It was also a club founded to keep the gay community free itself of anointed gatekeepers and machine politics. The club was renamed for Supervisor Harvey Milk when he was assassinated in 1978.
