Devoted glaadBLOG readers know we've caught MILK fever, regularly giving you updates on the upcoming biopic (out November 26!) and "fun facts" about Harvey Milk, the man. Of course we're not the only ones who understand the importance of the Mayor of Castro Street. San Francisco's Department of Labor is dedicating an entire building to the slain politician to preserve his legacy.

Harvey Milk

On November 25, the Treasure Island Job Corps Center Administration and Health & Wellness Building in San Francisco will be dedicated to the Harvey Milk Administration Building. A bust of Milk will be unveiled the same day, created to memorialize Harvey Milk. The dedication will take place two days before the 30th anniversary of Milk's assassination.

This will be the first time a federal government building will be dedicated to an openly LGBT individual.

Special guests include the Honorable Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and members of the Milk family.

The public is invited to attend!

Tuesday, November 25 at 1:30 pm.

Treasure Island Job Corps Center Administration and Health & Wellness Building

655 H Avenue, Building 442 in San Francisco.

Please RSVP by November 21 to (615) 259-4000, ext. 141 or email dhargrove@mpf.com.
