SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5) — The Annual Milk-Moscone Memorial March was held Saturday night in San Francisco’s Castro District.

The march commemorated the assassination of San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone on November 27, 1978.

The event has been a community tradition annually since the assassinations.

Milk was the first openly gay politician to be elected to public office in San Francisco.

This year’s speakers included Milk’s longtime friend Cleve Jones, San Francisco Supervisor David Campos, former State Senator Carol Migden and State Assembly member Tom Ammiano.
