Harvey Milk dubbed ‘sexual predator,’ ‘public liar’ while lawmakers seek to honor him

“Harvey Milk was a notorious sexual predator, advocated multiple sexual relationships at the same time, was a public liar and is in no way a good role model for children,” Thomasson said.

Thomasson noted that Randy Shilts, a homosexual San Francisco Chronicle reporter, wrote a favorable and telling biography of Milk called “The Mayor of Castro Street.” Thomasson delivered copies of pages in the 1982 book to members of the California Assembly today. The book describes Milk’s sexual relationships with a 16-year-old, a 19-year-old and other young men. The following are some passages in the book:

  • “…sixteen-year-old McKinley was looking for some kind of father figure. … At thirty-three, Milk was launching a new life, though he could hardly have imagined the unlikely direction toward which his new lover would pull him.” (Pages 30-31)
  • “It would be to such boyish-looking men in their late teens and early twenties that Milk would be attracted for the rest of his life.” (Page 24)
  • “Harvey always had a penchant for young waifs with substance abuse problems.” (Page 180)
  • “Harvey confided one night that at twenty-four, Doug was the oldest man Harvey had ever started an affair with.” (Page 237)

Shilts chronicles Milk’s affairs with teenagers and young men. According to one passage cited by SaveCalifornia, Milk explained to his lover why he should be allowed to have multiple relationships simultaneously:

As homosexuals, we can’t depend on the heterosexual model. … We grew up with the heterosexual model, but we don’t have to follow it. We should be developing our own life-style. There’s no reason why you can’t love more than one person at a time. You don’t have to love them all the same. You love some less, love some more – and always be honest with everybody about where you’re at. They in turn can do the same thing and it can open up a bigger sphere. (Pages 237-238)
