The Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club launched a new website this week as it works toward getting its message before a larger public audience.
The more progressive of the city’s two queer political clubs, the Milk club’s website had been notoriously rudimentary for years. The relaunch of the site follows a similar overhaul the more moderate Alice B. Toklas LGBT Democratic Club undertook of its own website.
Milk’s new online home officially went live Wednesday, September 26. The site’s main page highlights the club’s endorsements in this year’s San Francisco municipal races as well as local and state ballot measures.
It also has a link directing people to its official Facebook page. The club has struggled for years to get its members to use the page it controls and not a separate group page that someone else created and oversees.
The Milk club website includes a contact page listing how to reach its president and correspondent. It also features links to how to become a member or donate.
“It is very important we get our message of a better choice and a stronger voice out there so we can encourage other to choose equality themselves!” wrote president Glendon Hyde, also known by his drag name Anna Conda, in an email to members announcing the new website.
