GayRealEstate.com Participated in Harvey Milk Diversity Breakfast to Benefit Educational and Support Efforts in the Greater Palm Springs Region
Press Release - May 23, 2019
GayRealEstate.com, a service which connects buyers and sellers with compatible agents, participated in the annual Harvey Milk Diversity Breakfast which occurred from 9:30 to 11 a.m. on May 15 at the Palm Springs Convention Center. The event was held to celebrate the life of Milk, bolster the coalition of diverse communities in the region and raise funds for educational and support efforts in the greater Palm Springs community.
The breakfast was hosted by Palms Springs PRIDE which sought to bring together all who support equality and justice to celebrate the memory of Milk, an influential civil rights activist. GayRealEstate.com donated 1,000 dollars to purchase a table for 10 for the event. The event hosted many high schoolers with the express purpose of educating and supporting youth in the region.
Activities made possible by funds raised through the Harvey Milk Diversity Breakfast include: empowering youth to educate schools and communities on key issues to students, supporting peer mobilization efforts, working to create safer schools and healthier communities for LGBTQ youth, advocating for just policies that protect LGBTQ youth from harassment and violence and providing resources for students to organize with other youth groups (across identity lines) to both socialize and address broader issues of oppression.
Milk became one of the first openly gay men elected to political office in the United States when he was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977. He was assassinated (along with Mayor George Moscone) on November 27, 1978, eleven months after his election. The example of his life and leadership made him an important national symbol for the struggle for human rights.
The GayRealEstate.com team works to identify the best LGBTQ-friendly cities and communities in each state and region of the country and cultivates relationships and deep networks in each, to provide their clients the support they need to find ideal residency. The service GayRealEstate.com provides is one of many that LGBTQ individuals can use to bypass the potential for anxiety, discrimination and inequitable treatment.
With more than 25 years of experience as the industry leader, GayRealEstate.com continually strives for the protections of all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identification, and will continue to advocate for the full and equal treatment of all individuals: in real estate markets and all areas of life.
