November 8, 2017 marked the 40th Anniversary of Harvey Milk’s historic election as California’s first openly gay elected official. You and Illuminate helped make history.

40 years ago on that night, Milk returned to the Castro after his victory and received a “tumultuous and moving welcome” home.

To commemorate this watershed moment, thousands gathered at the famed intersection of Castro and Market streets to honor the life and legacy of Harvey Milk and reaffirm our commitment to equality for all. The culmination was the unveiling of two signature works of public art from Illuminate.
