Harry Britt passed away Wednesday June 24, 2020 at the age of 82. Harry Britt was a former San Francisco supervisor and trailblazer for gay rights.

Sen. Scott Wiener shared a message mourning Britt’s loss, writing,

“Harry Britt was a pioneer in the LGBTQ community’s entry into electoral politics. He deeply understood that while our allies are essential, we must have our own seat at the table. Harry helped create space for people like me to serve in elected office. His death is a tragedy.

Jackie Fielder, who is running for election to the California State Senate, shared,

“Harry Britt was also my first elected official endorser—unafraid to back this Democratic Socialist queer woman of color. He believed in a world where the everyday person has more of a say in policies that affect their own lives than big business, real estate, and corporations.”

Britt passed away at Laguna Honda Hospital in San Francisco. “He had suffered from various health issues over the years,” according to the Bay Area Reporter.
