Friday, May 3rd
Main Reading Room - 7pm
Wine reception at 6:30pm for pre-registered guests.
For adults and high school students only. No one younger will be admitted.
*Registration is recommended.
The journey of the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus began in earnest nearly 35 years ago on a fateful day in November 1978 when San Francisco City Supervisor Harvey Milk and San Francisco Mayor George Moscone were assassinated. Join us as the SFGMC explores the intersecting legacies of the late Harvey Milk and the Chorus, shares how a modest idea to honor Harvey Milk in their 35th year evolved into the phenomenon "Harvey Milk 2013" and presents a mini-concert representing the best of the Chorus today.

What are First Fridays?
Debuting in January 2011 in celebration of the Library's centennial year, the ongoing "First Fridays" series presents different narratives, ideas and presentations that an audience might otherwise not consider or experience. First Fridays are for adults and high school students.
The Library's Main Reading Room is transformed into a beautiful venue for First Friday events. Built in 1966, the Library is nestled among the redwoods in an award-winning building and reflects the diverse intellectual interests of the community.
Programs typically last 90 minutes (includes Q&A). First Fridays feature a wine reception before and after our program. Patrons enjoy the intimate atmosphere and ability to meet our presenters. Attendance ranges between 115 and 260 people per event.
