Thank you for posting this exhibit on the web. I have been interested in the history of Harvey Milk ever since I found out that I had an uncle who used to be Harvey's lover: Jack Galen McKinley. And while looking through the photos I found the picture of him (circa 1969). I never got to know Uncle Jack because he commited suicide in 1980 (i was only 6 at the time). But during my Christmas visit home on the year I came out to my family my mother showed me a letter Jack had written to her (and the rest of his family) in 1978. In it he expresses his grief over Harvey's assassination in a poem. He also "comes out" and asks his brothers and sisters to be understanding of homosexuals ... not only for himself but also because he may have some gay neices and nephews. .... it sadens me that he never knew the truth of those words. Again, thank you! And if you have any information about how I could possibly find MORE pictures from Harvey's past please contact me at: :-)
