Learn about the life and tragic death of gay rights pioneer Harvey Milk, California’s first openly gay public official.
By 1973, Harvey Milk had already been many things: naval officer, high school teacher, bit-part actor and wandering hippie. Starting fresh in San Francisco, his belief in a more personal approach to local government led him to run for office in the heart of American gay culture, the Castro. Lillian Faderman details the tenacity and courage of California's first openly gay public official.
Lesson by Lillian Faderman, directed by Tomás Pichardo-Espaillat.
