Harvey Milk Festival is a three day celebration of music, art, and film in celebration of LGBT equality, honoring Harvey Milk.
The mission of the Harvey Milk Festival (HMF) is to honor and celebrate the life of Harvey Milk, one of the first openly gay Americans elected to public office, by fostering emerging talent in musicians and artists who support diversity and reject discrimination, and to promote equality for LGBT people through supporting equal rights legislation.
HMF features a variety of attractions including live music, film, performing and visual artists, speakers, and vendors designed to engage a large and diverse audience.
Since we rely solely on volunteers and sponsors we need the help of the community to raise the funds needed to put on such an extravagant event. This year the event will be held on May 16th-18th, consisting of emerging artists in music, art and film. The highlight is the music component will be held in the heart of downtown Sarasota @ Five Points Park on May 18th. Twelve national, regional and local acts will be showcased for a free night of music, fun, and equality. Please consider giving a donation no matter how big or small. Let's keep music alive in the heart of downtown, while sending the message that ALL people are equal! Visit Harveymilkfestival.com for the list of events.
Thank you so much for your continued support!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
This is the 4th year of the Harvey Milk Festival. The board feels confident we can continue to grow, spreading the spirit of Harvey Milk and the need for LGBT equality. However, the board knows that community, gay and straight alike, is needed to financially help the festival become a success. Please consider lending your support.
