What do you remember of Harvey Milk?
Harvey Milk made a name for himself in San Francisco during the 1970s. Although he served only 11 months of his term on the city's Board of Supervisors (not his fault -- he was assassinated), he managed to defeat Proposition 6, which would have removed gay teachers from California public schools, and pass a historic gay rights ordinance in San Francisco.
You may or may not have agreed with his politics -- or the brash means he used to accomplish his goals. But MPR News wants to know: What do you remember of Harvey Milk? And how did he change our country, or possibly, your life?
