Stuart Milk is Nephew of Harvey Milk and Co-founder of Harvey Milk Foundation
PALM SPRINGS — Recognized for his work supporting struggling and emerging LGBTQ communities in over 60 nations on six continents, Stuart Milk will be honored at the 12th Annual Harvey Milk Diversity Breakfast. It will be held at the Palm Springs Convention Center on Thursday, May 9, at 8:30 AM for coffee hour and 9:30 a.m. breakfast and program.
The breakfast event is a Greater Palm Springs Pride program that annually showcases Palm Springs’ diversity, honors Harvey Milk’s memory, and celebrates his message of hope, civic-mindedness, and community.
Harvey Milk’s nephew, Stuart Milk, is the co-founder and executive chair of the Harvey Milk Foundation and a global LGBTQ rights advocate. Stuart has expanded his uncle’s example of visibility and courage, successfully leading historic global campaigns, including significant addresses and speaking events before the United Nations, the Munich Security Conference, the US State Department, the European Union, the US Department of Defense, the British Parliament, the Congress of Peru, the Seimas of the Republic of Lithuania, Parlamento Italiano, the International Court of Justice and at the White House.
Harvey Milk Day presents an opportunity to celebrate the life story, message, and legacy of Harvey Milk and educate our youth about an extraordinary leader whose courageous work to end discrimination against the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community in the 1970s set the stage for many of the civil rights advances we see today that benefit all Californians. Funds raised support Coachella Valley LGBTQ youth programs.
