Since 2009, the State of California has honored the memory of Harvey Milk by celebrating May 22, the anniversary of his birth, as a statewide “day of special significance.” The GLBT History Museum in San Francisco will celebrate Harvey Milk Day 2012 by offering free admission on May 22.

The museum also will project rare historic videos of Milk on the screen in its Main Gallery periodically throughout the day. In its Front Gallery, the museum also offers a permanent exhibit of Milk’s belongings, providing a glimpse into his private life as a resident of the Castro neighborhood.

Among the objects on display are the battered kitchen table from Milk’s apartment, his well-worn Levi’s jeans, and a pair of pink novelty sunglasses that reflect his famed sense of humor.
