On November 8, the city of Los Angeles officially declared today, November 10, "Morrissey Day." Although the proclamation is a little unclear, because the day is slated as "Friday, November 10," it looks like Morrissey day will just be a one-time thing and not an annual celebration. .
City Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez said, “Morrissey Day honors the man who put the ‘M’ in Moz Angeles, an icon whose music continues to touch and uplift countless people across the globe. Morrissey uses his voice to raise awareness for many social issues while ‘in his own strange way,’ always staying true to his fans.” Further, Mayor Eric Garcetti added, “Los Angeles embraces individuality, compassion, and creativity, and Morrissey expresses those values in a way that moves Angelenos of all age. Morrissey Day celebrates an artist whose music has captivated and inspired generations of people who may not always fit in — because they were born to stand out.”
