San Diego community to toast Harvey Milk on his birthday

SAN DIEGO -- On Harvey Milk's birthday, May 22, San Diego Remembers will host the second annual Community Toast to Harvey Milk, a free annual event held in Milk's honor.

Participants will gather at 6:30 pm at the eastern end of Harvey Milk Street in the front of The San Diego LGBT Community Center for brief remarks, then take a walk of remembrance down the first street in the nation named in honor of Milk, heading along University Avenue to Harvey Milk's American Diner for socializing, drink specials and a unified community toast.

"This event is open to all who wish to honor Harvey Milk on his birthday," said Steven Shultz, co-founder of the annual Community Toast to Harvey Milk. "The goal is to fill the first Harvey Milk Street in the nation with well-wishers united in remembrance, and to bring the community together in a toast to Harvey every year on his birthday, May 22."

The Community Toast to Harvey Milk was founded in 2013 by Caleb Rainey of the San Diego Multicultural LGBT Literary Foundation along with Shultz of the San Diego Sqooterheads. It is now presented by San Diego Remembers.
