San Francisco drag queen Per Sia read stories during Drag Story Hour as part of the Harvey Milk celebration block party at Jane Warner Plaza in the Castro LGBTQ neighborhood on Saturday, May 20. The afternoon activities also included live music by DJ Nico and a performance by the Queer Chorus of San Francisco. Harvey Milk Day, a day of special significance in California, is officially May 22, which would have been the late gay San Francisco supervisor's 93rd birthday. Governor Gavin Newsom issued a proclamation and lesbian Oakland at-large City Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan issued a statement calling for people to honor Milk's life and fight for equality and justice.
