Background: This memorial WOD is dedicated to Harvey Bernard Milk (May 22, 1930 – November 27, 1978) who was an American politician and the first openly gay elected official in the history of California, where he was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Milk was assassinated in San Francisco City Hall.

Despite his short career in politics, Milk became an icon in San Francisco and a martyr in the gay community. In 2002, Milk was called “the most famous and most significantly open LGBT official ever elected in the United States.”

We first found this OUTAthletics (@outwod) workout via a vlog by Myles Shupe (@myleslifts) as a vlog he posted a few days after OUTAthletics posted the workout on Facebook. Myles completed the workout in 21:05.
