Students at the Harvey Milk Civil Rights Academy in San Francisco's LGBTQ Castro neighborhood took to the streets Monday, May 22, and marched on Harvey Milk Day. The day of special significance in California honors the late gay San Francisco supervisor on what would have been his 93rd birthday. Students, staff, and volunteers marched from the school at 19th and Collingwood streets to Castro and Market streets.
