Hundreds Gather In SF To Remember Milk And Moscone

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco is remembering former city leaders Harvey Milk and George Moscone on the 30th anniversary of
their assassinations.

Hundreds gathered at San Francisco City Hall Friday for a concert before embarking on a candle light march to the site of Milk's camera shop in the city's Castro District.

The supervisor, San Francisco's first openly gay leader, represented the Castro, the center of the city's gay and lesbian community.

He was remembered Friday for celebrating differences between people. A movie about him, entitled "Milk," opened this week.

Milk and Mayor Moscone were shot by fellow Supervisor Dan White on Nov. 27, 1978 at City Hall.

Moscone's son, Jonathan, told the crowd his father was "an agent of eternal change."
