About 25 people gathered at the Legacy of Love Monument on Tuesday night for Dallas’ first-ever Harvey Milk Day celebration, organized by GetEQUAL TX. With dusk fading to dark, participants shielded their candles from gusty winds as they held vigil to mark the 82nd birthday of the gay rights pioneer who twice called Big D home. Speakers read selections from the play Dear Harvey and led the crowd in song through a megaphone. Balloons tied to the monument were released into the air at the end of the 40-minute celebration, following a rendition of “Happy Birthday.” More photos below.
