Based on the true story of gay rights activist Harvey Milk, the award-winning film by Gus Van Sant stars Sean Penn, James Franco, and Emile Hirsch. In 1977 Milk was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, becoming the first openly gay man to be voted into a major public office in America. From senior citizens to union workers, Harvey Milk changed the very nature of what it means to be a fighter for human rights. There will be discussion after the film.
