“Queer Past Becomes Present,” the long-term exhibition in the museum’s Main Gallery, includes a display on Milk’s life and death. Among the historical objects exhibited are a “Harvey Milk for Supervisor” t-shirt from Milk’s own wardrobe, as well as the suit he was wearing at the moment he was assassinated. Visitors also can hear Milk’s voice in the political will he recorded just days before his death.

In addition, the museum shop offers a reproduction of a t-shirt produced by the committee that raised funds to defend protesters arrested during the White Night Riot, an uprising that took place at San Francisco City Hall in 1979 after a jury found Dan White guilty of manslaughter instead of murder in the killings of Milk and Moscone. Also available are reproductions of Milk’s 1977 campaign t-shirt, as well as postcards of photographs of Milk.
