Harvey Milk would have turned eighty years old tomorrow.  And tomorrow, the state of California will recognize Harvey Milk Day, for the first time ever.  Milk is the second person, after naturalist John Muir, to receive this type of recognition from the state.  And he is only out LGBT person ever to be honored with an official observance of any sort.

On our campus, an award is given each year in Milk's name to the student or students who most significantly raise awareness of LGBT issues.  If you don't know that much about Milk and his contributions to LGBT and non-LGBT people, you can read more, watch more, or even read a children's biography about him to a younger sibling or relative.  (That book, by the way, was written by an Ithacan).

What will you do to celebrate Harvey Milk today?
