According to The Bay Area Reporter and other news sources, a plaque of the late gay political icon has been lifted from its home in front of the Eureka Valley branch of the San Francisco Public Library. Photographer Daniel Nicoletta, who came up as a youth working in Harvey’s Castro Camera store and on his campaigns, suspects a motive beyond mere profit. He told the B.A.R. “It definitely stinks of a political message to me. It’s not just some random vandalism by people hanging out in that plaza.”

The plaque that was stolen, was at the entrance of the Muni Railway station at Harvey Milk Plaza located at Market and Castro Street, not at the Library. I am surprised that there were no security cameras at that location because it is one of the main staging areas for gay events and protest, as well as a favorite place for the homeless and street youth.
