THE HARVEY MILK HIGH SCHOOL
New York, New York
Daphne Perrini, Principal

GAYFEST NYC is committed to sharing its gifts and its dollars with the next generation of LGBT Americans. To this end, monies raised through ticket sales and other specialized fundraising efforts are used to provide in-school mentoring, elective programs and scholarships for students of The Harvey Milk High School. Since June 2007, GAYFEST NYC has presented forty scholarships to graduating seniors of the school.

Founded in 1985 in collaboration with the New York City Department of Education, The Harvey Milk High School, flagship program of the Hetrick-Martin Institute, is an inclusive voluntary NYC public high school focusing on the educational needs of children who are in crisis or at risk of physical violence and/or emotional harm in a traditional educational environment. The Harvey Milk High School is a four-year, fully-accredited transfer high school. 95% of HMHS students graduate, well above the NYC average, and over 60% of HMHS students go on to advanced programs or college.
