Event description
Celebrate the life of visionary civil & human rights leader, Harvey Milk, who became one of the 1st openly gay elected officials in the U.S.

About this event

We are excited to have this opportunity to honor the life and significance of Harvey Milk. We feel this event will raise awareness of the importance of HM to a younger audience. Too often, history eludes us. And in a time where equality issues have taken leaps and bounds culturally and politically, the party and celebration overshadow the struggle, and sacrifices made by generations of the LGBTQ community.

May 22 is recognized as Harvey Milk Day, the day of his birth. It is on this day, we will host Harvey Milk Day at Chandlerville, in the courtyard of 155 Chandler Street. This is the first of its kind in Buffalo, as Harvey Milk Day is celebrated in major cities across the country, and in Canada. Our goal is to create an annual event in celebration of HM, as well as to bring families and loved ones together in a loving and accepting environment. The presentation will reinforce the importance of Harvey Milk, as a civil rights icon held in the highest esteem with the likes of Dr. Martin Luther King, and Mohandas Gandhi.

The event will feature performances from Buffalo Gay Men’s Chorus and Alison Pipitone Band. It will also have a 1 hour presentation of speakers highlighting important moments in the life of HM, and a special performance by our own Louie Visone as Harvey Milk.

Ticket price includes food, drink, and the presentation.

🍴2 Hot Dogs & 1 Hamburger per person. Includes all the fixings like Barrel+Brine pickles, lettuce, and our famous basil aioli. (vegetarians may sub 2x veggie burgers for +$5 per person, gluten-free buns +$5)
