Harvey Milk (1930-1978) born in Woodmere, New York was the first openly gay American politician to be elected to an official position in California's history. He had moved to San Francisco in 1972. While in office, Milk was able to pass a bill that banned discrimination in housing and employment based on someone's sexual orientation. In November 27, 1978, he and Mayor George Moscone were assassinated by Dan White, a former city employee who had wanted his job back after a failed venture in the private sector.
