Stuart Milk/ Tahoe Diver/ In the Flow/ Byron Blackburn


Stuart Milk Harvey Milk was a pioneering gay San Francisco politician when he was gunned down by a homophobic fellow politician in 1978. In the years since, he has become a symbol of gay pride and the subject of an Oscar-winning movie. Last year, Gov. Schwarzenegger signed a bill to create Harvey Milk Day - the first celebration takes place May 22nd. Tonight, the California Museum in downtown Sacramento will host the launch of the Harvey Milk Foundation. Today on Insight, you'll meet Stuart Milk, Harvey's nephew, and hear about his life and why he's being honored with his own day.

A public celebration for the first "Harvey Milk Day" and the Harvey B. Milk Foundation Launch is from 7 to 10 p.m. today at The California Museum, 1020 O St., Sacramento. Equality Action Now is hosting a variety of events beginning at 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 19th at the Crest Theater with a panel discussion and screening of "Milk." There will also be a march and rally from 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday, May 22nd at the California State Capitol Building.
