My flickr set is listed below from the movie “MILK” filmed in San Francisco Feb 08

Starring Sean Penn as Harvey Milk, directed by Gus Van Zandt. I enjoyed a lot of fun working as an extra in this historical film about Harvey Milk, a beloved San Francisco elected supervisor who was assassinated in 1978. We hoped this film would bring attention to the true story of Harvey Milk through popular Hollywood magic. " Milk" succeeded.

full credits and cast of the Movie “Milk”


On November 27, 1978 San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone were assassinated by Supervisor Dan White in City Hall. I took my children to the 1979 Gay Pride Parade in San Francisco to show our support for the GLBT citizens of the world. Along with over a million other attendees at the parade we lost many friends and family to AIDS in the following decades.

I have participated on Gay civil rights committees ever since, representing the heterosexual population who embrace diversity. In 1988 I organized the the original committee to create a public memorial for people who died of AIDS. The memorial committee was successful and San Francisco now has a public memorial in Golden Gate Park, the National AIDS Memorial Grove, http://www.aidsmemorial.org The AIDS Grove was designated a National memorial by the US Senate and Congress in 1996 led by Senator Nancy Pelosi. I volunteered and helped organize fund raising to commission a bronze sculpture of Harvey Milk, installed in San Francisco City Hall in 2008.
