Main Library

James C. Hormel LGBTQIA Center - 3rd Floor

100 Larkin St.

Marking the 35th anniversary of his assassination and as told by the people who knew him best, this is the recounting of the life and lasting impact of groundbreaking queer activist and politician Harvey Milk. The cast and director of Dear Harvey will present pieces from the play and facilitate a discussion about the work.

Drawn from over thirty interviews conducted by Patricia Loughrey, Dear Harvey recounts the achievements and vision of the first openly gay man elected to a major public office in the United States. A drag queen, a State Senator, an international gay rights activist, a nineteen-year-old composer… the play weaves these voices and more with the personal and political writings of Harvey Milk to paint a portrait of a leader, and a vision for equality. Supported by photos from Milk’s friends and family, Dear Harvey celebrates the stories not found in history books: stories of a love that reached beyond fear.
