Gay rights leader Harvey Milk remembered by KCRW published on 2013-11-28T02:13:13Z San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk was killed 35 years ago today, along with Mayor George Moscone. Residents were stunned, as well as activists in the Castro district, who helped elect the country’s first openly gay public official. Cleve Jones was by the side of Harvey Milk throughout much of his quest for gay rights, as a student intern in his office. He later co-founded the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, and also conceived the AIDS Memorial Quilt project that humanized the disease that spread like wildfire through the gay community. KCRW's Steve Chiotakis spoke with Jones on the anniversary of Milk's death, to discuss the issues still facing San Francisco residents and gay people around the world.
