Now proudly sponsored by San Diego Remembers, this annual event was launched in 2013 by the San Diego Multicultural LGBT Literary Foundation and the San Diego Sqooterheads. It is open to all who wish to honor Harvey Milk on his birthday. The goal is to fill the nation's first Harvey Milk Street with well-wishers united in remembrance, and to unite the community in a toast to Harvey at 8 p.m. every year.
